On a range-only gun, a failure is non-critical. If it shreds, you field strip it and remove the debris, re-assemble and go on shooting. It's not going to hurt anything. Maybe it will allow you to get 110,000 rounds on the frame instead of only 100,000. The only downside on a range-gun is it may, possibly, perhaps, maybe, change the timing on the slide cycle and reduce reliability. Again, it's easily corrected. Go for it!
I just put one on my BHP, a range-gun, just out of curiosity. Haven't shot it yet.
