Taurus PT92AFS. Bought it new in 99 for my 21st bday.

Just over 18000 rounds in ten years. From the lightest of reloads, factory plinker, factory defensive, to some reloads that had to be way over max.

Only trouble I ever had was due to improper grip in the first 300 rounds.

No repairs to date. Original mainspring, original magazine springs. And has had a loaded mag in it everyday since new.

Right now it rests on a 3" screw, hanging above the door inside my hall linen closet. Just waiting to be used.

(Taurus trash talkers are a joke)

I also have a .22 Colt New Frontier that my dad purchased new in '76. I know It would be an underestimate, but it would be safe to say it has eaten at least 30,000 rounds.

One broken firing pin, one broken grip frame. And grips were replaced due to a fire.
Shooter ready....

Well, have a pre war Marlin 39 that belonged to Dad, and a Ruger Mk I that I bought in 1970. I also shoot a number of Mossberg 22 rifles from the 40s-50s. No significant work on any of them. The Marlin and the Ruger are probably somewhere between 3 and 4K in ammo. Not rounds- POUNDS. Of 22 LR. Several of the Mossys have probably put close to a ton of rimfire ammo out there. The Moisin-Nagant 91/30 has a date of 1927, and the #1Mk3 SMLE is dated 1915- I don't even want to THINK about those! The other end of the spectrum- I have a Remington 1100 Light Field in .410 that I inherited from my Dad in 1995. He had shot it 3 times. I have shot it 4 times, plus one round of sporting clays. Most good guns will outlast us by a good margin.

I have shot untold thousands of rounds from all my 22's. My PT1911 is headed to around 10,000 rounds give or take a few hundred. My old Springer has at least 2-3 times as many as the PT1911.

I dont keep a detailed watch on rounds,but i would guess about 1500 through each Springfield 1911TRP.For the Benellis,about 500 through the shotgun and 400 in the rifle.
Springfield Armory 1911 TRP,two of them,in Simply Rugged holsters for the summer and Andrews double shoulder holster for winter.

Benelli MR1 AR-15 with Surefire light/laser.

Benelli M2 with Surefire light.

Probably 2000 rounds thru my Springfield XDm 40 since I picked it up a year or so ago. No issues and it shoots far better than me. I've probably put more through it than the S&W 411 it replaced which I had for 15 years.

The most rounds I put through a gun was my first generation Kimber Gold Match. I owned it for 3+ years and had probably 8K to 10K rounds fired. Other than replacing the recoil spring - nothing else was necessary...

I can't comment on the guns that are older then me which is several of them but my XD45, which was my first pistol, easily has 5,000+ rounds thru it without a single issue. My Kimber is probably pushing 2,500 now and I've had it a little over a year.

It isnt unheard of for a trap shooter to have in excess of 500,000 rounds fired in their carrer. One older man here has actually kept track of his shooting and closed in on 750,000 rounds before he had to quit because of age and poor eyesight.

F.I.E. model 22
Don't know alot about this one, I have looked for info on it for years.
Mydad bought it about 8yrs ago. It was extremely used then.
He put a few bricks through it. It has never had any kind of problems.
I got it from him and have since taken it to the range nearly every time I've went.
I have around 20000 out of my hand. Not sure about the entire life of the weapon, but the only issue I'm having is the extactor clip on the side of the action is not grabbing and pulling out the spent cartridge as it should. Oh and I just found a magazine that I was able to make work for it. The old mag spring was totally worn out.
I think I'll make a thread about this gun. I have found the revolvers, 380s, and 25s, but no info what so ever on this 22. Kind of the reason I HAD TO HAVE IT!
Note: CCI Stingers perform wonderfully!
So I would guess that over all this firearm has had closer to 50000, maybe more maybe less.
