I've got approx 750 rounds through mine so far with a total of zero stoppages.
I ran about 400 rounds without cleaning. I haven't got to shoot it a lot so far but have got it hot and dirty without suffering any malfunctions.
I really like the magpul equipment and feel it is excellent quality and a tremendous value for the price.
I was originally going to build my own AR using a lot of magpul components, so when I found the MOE at a good price with most of the stuff I wanted (Moe Buttstock, Grip, Magpul Back up rear sight, 16" chrome lined Barrel, M&P tested chromed bolt and carrier)I went that route instead and changed out or added the the other parts I wanted(longer handguard, Magpul BAD Lever, enhanced trigger guard, single point plate and Angled Fore Grip, Heavy buffer, rail mounted front sight, and Optic)
