One Fifth...

The Gen4 19 test continued at Indy Arms Co. yesterday, with fifty rounds of Wolf Polyformance 115gr FMJ and a hundred rounds of Federal American Eagle 115gr FMJ being sent downrange. I loaded fifty rounds of the American Eagle in the ETS magazines and the remainder in factory G19 mags. The Wolf went in three factory G19 mags with the last five rounds going in that Magpul 17-rounder you see in the picture.

I arrived at the range with all the mags already loaded, so it was a quick range session. Ran the target out to seven yards and popped everything off pretty quickly in five- to ten-round strings. I wound up letting the gun sit with the slide locked back while I swept up brass, because the slide was kinda hot to the touch.

There were no malfunctions of any type to report.

That makes 400 rounds through the Gen4 19 since it was cleaned or lubricated with one failure-to-fire (#205). 1,600 rounds to go.
