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.

That's been my experience. In the 20 years I've been shooting Springers I've sent highly modified guns in for issues and they still warranty the unmodified parts. Once they offered to fix a bad...

Sounds like your method works for you so that's all that matters. I'm at the range 2-3 times a month so whether it gets broken in today or next week generally doesn't matter to me and definitely...

The most common issue is the ejector coming loose and needing to be pinned. Since getting that fixed under warranty my wife's has been good. 8-9k rounds thus far and SA did warranty the front sight...

I would agree. Most people get tired and start to lose focus after a couple hundred rounds unless it's a class with breaks or you are stretching it out for hours. Better to break it up over multiple...

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.

Haven't seen one in a while but, at one time, there were lots of pics and stories about the V10 Springers. They used to run in the $600-$650 range and were kinda fun to shoot but definitely didn't...

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.
