Project Whimsy Crosses the Finish Line

Sunday afternoon on the back yard range at Castle Frostbite, the Glock 37 (aka "the waterhead Glock", aka "Project Whimsy") fired a hundred rounds of commercial .45GAP, bringing the total to 2,010 since the last time it had been cleaned or lubricated, back in January.

The elusive Major Caudill fired a couple magazines.
The Remington 230gr FMJ left my fingers all gray and nasty as always, but all one hundred rounds fired without a hitch. The weapon went through its complete cycle of operation with every press of the trigger.

The Glock 37 has now fired 2,010 rounds since it was last cleaned or lubed, with one failure to feed on round #1,589, one failure to fire on round #1,712, and one parts breakage. This concludes the 2,000 round challenge and the gun is getting a well-deserved bath. Look for a wrap-up piece soon with more photos, thoughts, explanations, and future plans for the poor bobblehead Glock.
