    This is the most amazing torture test I have ever seen done to a pistol. I am a new G21 owner and after seeing the hell you have put this gun through, I will never give up my G21;W
    Have you considered duplicating the 10k rounds in one day torture test done on the SIG 220?
    I have no doubt that the G21 would work great, but if you put that SIG through any of the tests you did to that G21, it would fail for sure.
    The G21 rocks!!!~2

    Try that on any other pistol. Glocks Rock and so does your thread. Very interesting.

    Awesome tests, i'm also a member over at ar15.com and almost fell over in my chair when i saw that you threw that damn thing out the window of a plane! Now what I want you to do is go buy a Glock 23 and do it all over again, so I can feel good about my gun too. :cool:

    Excellent thread and testing

    I almost cried when I saw the hk usp all messed up and abused. I've loved HKs for show, but Glocks for go.

    I have to hurry off for work and didn't get through the whole thread so maybe it was addressed but as far as broken spring cups go...

    I carry a g22 for leo work. During the yearly inspection by dept glock armorers, they found the spring cups were cracked. both were being held in by the tension of the spring and whatever else holds them in.

    I was freaked cause i didn't know how long they had been like that. i was worried i was carrying a gun that would not fire. the armorer loaded the broken cups up int he gun and we went to the range.

    after 46 rounds, all on my belt and in gun, i was satisfied I'd be OK. We had new cups on hand, but i don't worry if they break again.


    stay safe

    This needs to be stickied.

    Links to your AR15.co thread were pretty common. You always got those "why would you do that to a perfectly good Glock" type of people, some were even mad that you did that. I always thought it was pretty informative in the box-of-truth type non-scientific testing kind of way.

    BTW I love my G21 and will never give it up.

    Just look out for those HK freaks trying to say that you set it up so thier gun will fail.

    IIRC you also did some testing with a CZ and it faired quite well also. Glocks and CZs rule.

    I honestly wonder how a Ruger P94, P95 or P97 would hold up to your tests. They're supposed to be pretty tough guns.

    Absolutely Freaking Amazing! Thank you for verifying that my latest purchase was indeed an excellent choice. I kept hearing about Glocks amazing endurance and now I can say I've seen it. Great job on the tests.
