    Sig Sauer P226 Navy 50,000 rounds (update 04/14/2010)


    Today I fired the 50,000th round from the Sig Sauer P226 Navy #NSW 14xx. It took five years, and 29 days.
    The Sig P226 was puchased new on September 7th, 2004.


    I kept a log on every round fired from the Navy P226. It was cleaned after almost every range session.
    Here are some statistics:
    *The recoil spring was replaced every 5,000 rounds.
    *18,300 rds. the spring guide rod was replaced. It wore out from using Wolff springs (this is the only part replaced on the Sig).
    *22,000-25,000, 3,000 between cleaning.
    *28,000 rounds several failure to feed, due to faulty Remington ammo (these were the only failures).
    *41,200 rounds hammer dropped three times (from single action). Continued to fire ok.
    *126 trips to the range.
    *Average 397 rounds fired per range trip.
    *Cleaned with M-pro 7, and Gun Scrubber.
    *Lubricants, Weapon Shield, and G96 oil.

    Some ammunition statistics:
    *Approximately 98% of the ammo fired was 115gr.
    *Weight of fully loaded cartriges
    1000rds.=26.36lbs.
    10,000rds.=263.60lbs.
    50,000rds.=1,318lbs.
    *Total weight of bullets (based on 115gr. bullets)
    60.87, 115gr bullets = 1 pound
    50,000, 115gr bullets = 821.42lbs.

    *50,000 rds. = 1,000, 50 round boxes
    *1,000 boxes @ $10.00 each (approxmately)=$10,000

    Could you provide specifics about what areas of the rod wore out?

    Thanks.

    The very tip wore down. The end of the spring was pushing out between the slide, and guide rod. This has been a reported problem with Wolff springs. Went back to OEM double strand springs. Everything is now ok.

    The gun still looks very, very nice....

    How does it shoot? Any difference in feel, trigger, accuracy, etc.?
    Did you replace magazines or the mag springs?

    What was this problem:
    *41,200 rounds hammer dropped three times (from single action). Continued to fire ok.

    I assume those pictures are from when the gun was new?
