I've got a V3 with 12,300 through it, another V3 with about 5,000, and I just started shooting an L V1. I have 1,500 on it.

My #1 LEM is just over 24.5K rounds. This a modified Gray gun with reduced reset, recently with 4.1 parts added. Eight malfunctions: two broken tr springs until I realized that dry fire should count in maintenance intervals, two stuck steel cases until I realized that HKs don't feed steel ammo (same happened with my other HKs), two failures to feed until I realized that recoil spring needs to be changed after 20,000 rounds, and two unexplained feeding stoppages. No accuracy loss. The grip panels are worn into smooth surface. That's it.

My #2 30L LEM, also reduced reset with 4.1 parts, has 5800 rounds. It just recently had two FTFs and I realized that I needed to rebuild the mags. Those are the practice mags shared with #1 so they have 30K rounds on them. When I pulled old mag springs, they were one to two coil lengths shorter than replacements. No stoppages after that so far.

Yes, the second post in this thread links to TLG's test results.

I have a P30LS with almost 30K through it. No breakages or malfunctions besides working up underpowered reloads.

A measly 11k+ through my P30L 9mm right now. Started its life as a V3 but is now a V1. She hasn't been perfect but has run quite well. Only real issues are with under powered 115g.

My P30 40 cal is like 1600. Barely worth mentioning...

I just read that whole test report . Amazing testimony about the quality of the gun .
I bet I've read all those entries 3 or so times, it's most definitely an amazing testimony on the P30. I found a used '09 P30 and bought it with confidence that even if it had 10k(I bet it had 2k at most) rounds down the pipe it still is a drop in the bucket of its likely service life. Buy a used or new P30 with confidence that you won't wear it out. My .02 cents on the matter.
