Spent ten hours in a Combat Pistol I class and there were a variety of firearms out there, from 1911s, to Springfield XDs, Ruegers, Berettas, etc. We spent hours running and gunning in various scenarios in a shoot house and out on a dynamic range, shooting small steel torso targets out to 35 yards, in various timed events and scenarios. The G26 got a real work out, along with the shooter.
Guess which firearm experienced ZERO malfunctions, problems, etc.?
One word. Starts with a G. Five letters.
I've had the G26 for over two years now and ZERO malfunctions, at any point. And yes, I do clean it at least a few times a year, whether it needs it or not.
