Just had my G20sf over about two weeks now, and got about 540 rounds through it so far :thumbsup:

About 500 threw each G20 and G29. The 29 has a little more so maybe 600 400 . Not counting the SD ammo that was tested so about another 100 each. The 10mms havent got to hit the range in a couple months.

I also went to the range yesterday to try out my new 22Lb. Captured recoil spring, I'm suprised it cycled the light loads pretty well. I went through some blazers and some Georgia Arms with no malfunctions.

My G29 has about 10,600 rounds through it since April 1, 2011. So far, the only replaced parts have been a factory recoil spring and a broken locking block (around 8,000-9,000 rounds). I could count the number of failures (attributable to the gun) on one hand, maybe one finger. All of my jams have been with aftermarket springs or because of the broken locking block. Other than that, I had a few jams with a certain load that I think was just too hot for an old stock spring (155gr Gold Dot @ 1400fps from G29 barrel). It's been amazing.

My G20LS (LWD G20LS slide and 6.02" barrel on G21SF frame) has about 1,200 rounds through it after about two months. It has been nearly perfect as well. The LWD barrel seems to have been opened up at the factory, and has poor support, but is about to get sent back. Other than that, the only issue has been 2 FTFeeds last range trip after about 300 rounds. I think the tight LWD barrel was just getting too dirty. The frame has about 7,000 .45ACP rounds on it as well.

Got my G20SF in Janary of this year and have somewhere around 5,000 rounds thru it. All but the first 150 rounds were reloads. :supergrin:

That's just like me. My first 170 rounds were factory, then all reloads. Actually, I did buy a few more boxes of factory stuff, but that was about 300-400 rounds total, and all in the first thousand. I still have all of the brass from those factory rounds. In fact, if you want to know how hard I use my brass, get this. I have about 300 factory pieces of brass, and 500 pieces of Starline nickel. THAT'S IT, and that's all I've EVER had. So, 800-900 pieces of brass (ruined some) has lasted me over 10,000 rounds. Given that I just loaded the last 100 new pieces for the first time, you can see how hard I use each piece. I think those original 170 pieces have about 16 loadings on them. They won't hold any bullet lighter than 180gr, but are fine with 180-200gr bullets. I'm about to buy a couple of thousand pieces, then use all of my current brass for SHTF stockpiling.

165 as of today out of new 20SF. All hand loads. Love it! 8.2 longshot with 200gr XTP. Night sites from glockmeisters BF sale should be here this week. Nothing like a new glock in the stable!

Gen 2 G20 w/ around 3500. Runs perfect!

Approx. 2000, mostly through aftermarket IGB barrel, except first 50 were Remington UMC 180 gr, then all my own loads.
Still have few hundreds UMCs I am trying to sell but 10mm auto is very rare in here.
Ah yes, G20 runs perfect, still my favorite "the last to sell" gun.

Got mine last wednesday, have about 100 rounds through it so far, been working on loads, only making a few at a time until I settle on one accurate hunting load. Right now evaluating g 180 HP XTP and 10.7 blue dot, fairly accurate going to try same only with longshot and maybe AA 7 or 9. Looking for a bit less bullet drop (little more velocity, less time to targe, less drop) out to 50 yards and an increase in accuracy. The blue dot load has a nice group at 25 but would like to extend the range somewhat.

I'm still going through different type of rounds for my G20 until I decide to keep the ones I like for SD. Right now I'm waiting on another 500rd I'll be picking up this week, and thinking about trying out some 165gr. Underwood ammo.

Of course. 180gr @ 1300fps, 200gr @ 1200fps, and 225gr LSWC @ 1150fps. 234, 240, and 258 Power Factor, respectively. For new shooters, I load a 180gr @ 1175fps (211 PF) to work up to full power loads.

I bought my G20 from a friend who had never fired it last year and have put 5000 rounds thru it. Including 1000 rounds in one weekend of intense training this spring! Recently installed a 22lb. recoil spring but that is the only change to the gun.:cool:

Bought my G20 3gen NIB on 9-17-11. LW Barrel and 3.5 lb connector. With a bit of spit and polish for good measure.

It's had 1K rounds put through it since purchase. All are my own reloads. 500 of them where from my days of wasting money on a Delta Elite. The G20 has been flawless, has shot great! Almost as good as my CZ-52 and 686P 4". :)

I lost count on what I've run thru my 10mm guns, but I have run many different bullets and loads thru them, this includes 10mm, 40S&W, 357Sig and 9x25Dillon.

I will say that they have digested everything I've thrown at them...from Mild to Wild!

Yup, just have your springs balanced properly and you'll be fine. Recoil, main/hammer, leaf all need to work together with the correct profile FP stop and barrel/slide/frame fit. The correct answer for magazines is Metalform. :whistling: Except the Para 10mm conversions I do, all single stack 1911 conversions get Metalform mags.

I'm a big fan of the round-top 8rd Metalforms for full sized pistols and a big fan of flat-bottomed (or small radiused) FPS's... so this is good.

I run the round follower, 8rd, welded base plate mags in my personal single stack 10mm 1911 (the infamous aluminum frame Kimber/Fusion bobtailed commander I built).

The flat bottom FPS with a tiny radius on the leading edge is perfect. Break the 90 degree angle and blend it.

Freakshow, welcome back, I haven't seen you around for quite awhile and I hope you stick around.

I remember when you built the L.W. 10mm, 65,000 rounds? Amazing!

Do you have a link to your ammo company?

12-07-2011, 12:08
Thanks. I don't do online sales or mail order. Local sales only. At the prices I sell 10mm for, there's no way I could keep up with demand if I sold online. Sorry.

Only 50 through my Colt Delta Gold Cup. I took her to the range just once when I bought her in `97. Since then she has been a safe queen (but ready for SHTF).

Yep, I remember reading that article back in the day. I think it was more torture for the shooters than the pistol.

I honestly don't keep track of fired rounds. When I'm done shooting the brass gets swept up and tossed in the "needs tumbled" container. While nowhere close to Freak's total, I'd guess 15,000+ over the past couple of years.
