Im not sure if this is the place but who among us knows the life expectancy for # of rounds fired from poly frame guns? All things equal with factoy ammo will a Glock last longer as a Sigma as a Witness, as a Stealth, as a Khar etc. in 9mnm? Is there an official # of rounds prediction available from the manufact.
Safe shooting to us all.

I was reading thru some of my gun magazines & found an article by Chuck Taylor written back in 1995. He stated that his Glock 17 9mm had over 60,000 rounds of full power service ammo thru it without a single problem. I own one myself & also have quite a few rounds thru mine with no problems. I can't speak on the others that you mention, as my Glock is the only poly gun that I own. Hope this helps.
