Over the Hump...

Last week the 5906 crossed the halfway mark of the 2,000 round test, with a hundred rounds of Winchester 124gr NATO FMJ and twenty rounds of standard velocity 115gr V-Crown JHP's from Sig Sauer.

Despite being labeled standard pressure, the V-Crown stuff felt pretty authoritative for 115gr ammo. I should chrono it to see what the velocity is out of the 4" Smith barrel.

Again, the pistol went through the complete cycle of operation on every round.

This brings the total rounds fired through the 5906 to 1020 since the gun was last cleaned or lubed, with no malfunctions of any type to report. 980 rounds to go.
