Don't know how true this is, but my instructor for my Concealed Handgun License uses a G17 Glock that has, according to him, over 400,000 rounds through it. He averages 20-25 students per class, with a minimum of 50 rounds for each student. I can tell you that during our class, while the guns functioned (pull trigger, bang), the front sight kept falling out that he had to pull out a different gun, another glock. He even said the only cleaning they got was a barrel brush and some cleaning on the feed ramp.
I am not a Glock Fan boy, but if those numbers are correct I left impressed .
