    Purchase date, late June 2012. Hit the 1000 round mark at the range today, firing mostly 124 gr. FMJ from Good To Go ammo. Last 50 were 115 gr. PMC - just to try something different.

    Last outing, wind was behind and right-to-left, so I did get grazed on the shoulder by two casings, but only two out of 100 and could be due to the wind that day.

    Today, little breeze (and high humidity - ugh). No BTF. No erratic ejections in 1000 rounds varying from 115 to 147 gr., although the large majority was 124 gr. (1150 fps). I did have some erratic shots and that was my fault from tensing too much from a rough day. Relaxed by the end of session, though :)


    regards,

    My Gen 4 19 just broke 2,000 with no issues (purchased in July 2012.) Mostly 'powderpuff' reloads of mine. An occasional dribble ejection here and there but to be expected with my reloads.

    Can't be a Gen 4. I keep hearing they don't work past 500 rounds. :supergrin:

    Just kidding. I have one with about 600 flawless rounds through it. Congrats
