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
*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
