    depends on usage and ammo. If you were firing hte gun very quickly like for uspsa competition, and shooting hot jacketed ammo it would probably be somewhere like 40,000 for peak accuruacy if otherwise well maintained. Proably usable up to about 60,000. this has been my experience with a 9mm open gun.

    If you were shooting jacked ammo at more typical factory velocities I would expect peak accuracy from 60,000 - 80,000 with usable life up to 120,000 - 150,000.

    it might be a good thing to not have your serial floating around the internet. what are you using the pistol for?

    Police buyback... you don't have to worry about too many rounds, most only shoot once a year.

    95-98% of Glock owners will not shoot their barrels out.
