mine has 400 rds thru it and operates so far without a prob. i bought it cause of the super slim grip it has. my wife is comfortable with it as a full size platform(9mm) unlike any other full size hg i got. the comp's and subcomp's have a bit too much recoil for the wife. she handles it well. i like the feel too. it's a good gun for the money. i feel if someone makes the mistake of putting my back to the wall ,i don't have to give up my sigs or colts ,beretta's for that matter. took the sig p250 out of my wifes night stand and put the sr9 in it as soon as i brought it home. it groups well at 20ft. 2 1/2 to 3" clusters . i mean for the money it's a good gun. looks nice as a full size service sized gun. slide is a bit stiff(still)(greased it which i don't normally do.) but it feeds well ,oh the mag release is definately a two hander but if you gotta insert another mag after 18 rds you better be reachin for a phone before the 2nd 17rd mag. problems reported with the mags that are supposedly tough to load are non exsistant for me. it's not my favorite gun but i would'nt mind handing it over to a cop to put in a evidence bag.
