2,000 rounds w/out a failure

I keep detailed records of round counts, I now have 2,000 rounds through the 9mm Ultra Raptor with 300 of those being 124 gain HydraShocks without a single failure

I dropped a new spring assembly into the gun last night after cleaning it, now I'm interested if I can feel any difference on the next range session

I'm sure you will feel a difference.

Glad to hear it, I also keep detailed round counts, ammo used drills run for all my guns. Have for many many years. Fun going back 5-6 or seven years and looking what you did with a perticular gun. I own more then forty handguns so at times it will be awhile since I shot a perticular gun. Nice to look back and see what the gun did on its last few range trips.
My round counts on just the Kimbers I own now are.
CDP Pro-6170
CDP Ultra-2360
Desert W-1850
SCPHD-1700
Warrior SOC-610
Failures have been few and far between, 90% of my shooting is with my hand loads. Dont care what kind of gun it is if you run them hard enough and push them, there will be failures.
I was running some drills with one of my Glock 23's last week and had a failure to feed. First time I can ever remember having any type of failure with it, it happens. Tap rack back in action, it will probably be a long time before it has another. But goes to show, no machine is immune to malfunctions.
