It's been one week since I picked up my pistol, and have exactly 550 rounds through it, with zero faliures. Dirty yes, but only took one hour 10 minute's to clean/lube. The only noticable wear is atop the barrel, but everything else look's fairly new. Some of the finish is wearing off the high area's on the slide release, but that's fine. Feel's smoother than it did a week ago too. Overall, I LOVE this pistol! Even after a week, it's still hard not to pick it up. I can see another one in the future, along with the compact model.
