Frank's a good guy. He's done quite a bit of work for me over the past 10 years or so. Glad he got your shooter fixed up.

I wouldn't worry about it until you have an issue. I've got a couple with 50-60k rounds on them that are still working fine.

You should be able to get more out of your mag springs. I don't use 500s but I generally get at least 6k rounds out of a mag spring before they need to be changed.

I've carried mine in a VM2. My normal carry is a 26oz alloy so it's definitely heavy by comparison. The lil 36oz SOB weighs almost as much as my full sized range gun.
