    That's good to hear. How often do you clean it?

    Haven't put that many rounds thru my M&P's, (I have three), but the only malfunction I've every had was with a batch of bad ammo. Otherwise they're like the Energizer Bunny. Clean mine after every trip to the range. Old habits are hard to break.

    Its funny I used to dread the armors white glove treatment after a busy day at the range but now I find cleaning my weapons enjoyable and relaxing lol. It bugs me to carry my EDC home from the range dirty and clean it asap. Off topic but I've been using Froglube(got a bunch of the $.98 sample tubes) and I'm so far convinced its as good as the adds/company sales pitch claims. Tho it does take away a lot of my cleaning/relax time lol

    The spring is nearing its end. It just doesn't have the pop it used to have. I haven't seen a malfunction yet but it's coming. Occasionally when I seat a magazine and the slide runs itself(happens with a lot of polymer guns) the round will not quite chamber. It used to always chamber a round if the slide ran but I do not consider this a malfunction since I rack the slide anyway. the spring does not have the same force it use too.

    I use ballistol and gun-slick pre lubber whips. I do not clean after every trip. After a class or 300+ rounds yes.

    It started as a range kit gun and I have 3 mags which also still run great. I probably just need a new guide rod spring and she'll be just fine. image-3520691328.jpg

    I don't know how people keep count of how many rounds they put through a given gun. I buy 9mm ammo by the case but I have no idea how many rounds I have put through each gun. Plus my wife shoots when she feels like it. I have no idea of what gun she shot or how many rounds. If she is out shooting that is her time, I don't bother her.

    Keeping count is mainly for professionals, and for ppl like me who can't afford to stockpile ammo. I only get to fire a few times a month and usually only have a 100 or so rounds per gun to fire.

    No I stippled the grip my self. I started on pmags and then went to a few of my polymer frames.
