Kind sir, I believe you are under the wrong impression that somehow I was expecting the HK to replace the barrel for free under warranty. Please read my posts as I made it very clearly that it would have been nice, but not expected from them(think like: if a stranger would give me a gift, that would be nice and I would gladly accept it, but I certainly do not expect it from him/her).
More to it, since it is not my first purchase I am quite familiar with the fact that in Europe no producer gives true lifetime warranty(except for 1 that I know-and I believe they do it since they are new on the guns business and I believe they want a share of the market). So it would have been pretty biased to expect this from HK.
If anywhere in my posts is anything that would suggest otherwise please PM me and I will edit at once, as I do not want to leave this impression(I might be cheap but I am not a beggar).
Now, my manual does not propose a maintenance schedule(parts replacement schedule), this is why I searched the web and came across some suggestions that I was following. If any of you have a written HK maintenance schedule for the P30L please share it with me as I am very interested.
Regarding my theory:
Opinions are personal and very diverse. I found mine to work for me(and my shooting schedule) better so far on different firearms. Since my HK(which again is my favorite-proven by the fact that I shot +30K rounds trough it in 2.5 years) is the only one that broke under this maintenance/shooting regimen, there is a probability that either my maintenance theory failed me or there is some other reason.
For this reason I decided to attack the matter in a pincer maneuver(a bit of strategic thinking if you wish): revise the maintenance theory and also search for other possible reasons-this is the reason I opened this thread.
