A brief range report that include some torture testing. Overall results were fairly good.
My sr9 has about 900 rounds through it with no issues other that a dud striker right out of the box.
I was out in some very dusty and windy conditions.
I accidentally dropped the SR9 into some baby powder like dust. It was almost submerged in a fine dirt/dust.
The internals were horrendously dirty.
I put some oil on the rails and the slide lossened up a bit and didn't lock on its own quite as much.
I consider the results to indicate the SR9 is above average in withstanding abnormal levels of abuse.
The only way you could come to that conclusion would be to "test" other pistols in the same way. Above average compared to what?
With the incredibly fine soil that the gun was dropped into, I suspect any gun would have had issues.
This gun has also served time as our bathroom gun. It has been left in extremely high humidity for months. It has even had water dripped on it from a leaky faucet
I may try to torture test this gun more.
Why? Seriously, why subject the pistol to more unnecessary and damaging wear?
