I can well imagine somebody getting all enthused, reading 100000 and saying 1000000.
I know of revolvers shot well over 100000 locally, but with Specials, and mostly wadcutters at that.

There IS one gun that was fired a documented 1000000 rounds without barrel replacement or mechanical repair. It is a Boss shotgun that belonged to the London proof house and was used to test the ammunition that was to be used to test the many guns that went through.
Winchester "only" got 250000 rounds through a Model 97 but that is pretty good for a repeater.

But those are shotguns operating about 1/3 of Magnum revolver pressures.
Bill Wilson sectioned a used .38 Super barrel and it showed a lot of erosion after 30000.
