You should take apart your Ruger. There are plenty of moving and rubbing parts inside a revolver. Further, the tolerances of those moving parts in something like a Glock are much lower than those in a revolver. That is, the moving parts in a revolver are much smaller, and require much more precise fitment, so a relatively small amount of physical wear will throw them out of time.

I found a quote that I also think very much clarifies what I mean:
"It really depends on the kind of service. In high-speed IPSC/ICORE type shooting the guns take a real pounding. If all you do is NRA pistol (a pretty low-speed sport) the gun could last much longer.

I have a 625-8 with 2.5 years and ~25,000 rounds through it in IPSC competition. I consumed about 4 cylinder stops and 1 cylinder in the process. The gun is still great and should be good for several more seasons.
"

So 100,000 rounds of single-action shots using sub-loaded wadcutters is a whole lot different than 100,000 rounds of magnum loads in an action sport. Conversely, an auto takes the same wear every time it's fired.
That is, 100,000 rounds pretty much provides the same amount of wear regardless of the type of shooting for which it was used.

IMO I think you would have to evaluate them in their own class and not against each other. But you can compare if you want to and my decision would be a DRAW!

If you think life is tough now, just wait until you are fortunate enough to have both. At that point you will be able to choose which one you are going to carry or take with you where ever. At this point you will truly loose yur mind. Best wishes, Headhunter.
