Outstanding review and superb pics! Good shooting, too! I could look at those all day! Thanks!
I've never taken a fancy to nickel guns, but I guess I'm wrong again. The resilience of the nickel and its wear resistance are unbelievable. Just incredible.
Thank you for the well-documented Phase-1.
Did one round type (manufacture and weight) distinguish themselves over, or below, the rest?
In 1993, I bought my first "new" Sig, A P226 West German 9mm, no idea how many thousands of rounds have been sent through that firearm! But, it is still one of my "favorites"!

Holy Moly!! who loaded all those mags? How many Lulas did you wear out?
Thank you Q. Your hard work on putting this together for us is very much appreciated...

Outstanding test, great shooting, and great pistola you have there!! I would love a Nickle like that!
Awesome post. It’s interesting how the smiley on the barrel starts to develop,
while the rails look pristine.
Wow is about all I can say. Have you thought of writing a report of getting this info Sig, or to a gun magazine?
Well, I guess B152251 is broken in now and good to go for CCW!
Very impressive Q. Thanks for taking the time
I think that lube must be the right stuff for a Nickel P228. Looks outstanding. Apparently pretty accurate too. Job well done.
2/8/19 Update: It's at 11,500 rounds as of today (3 additional trips x 500 rds each). No malfunctions. But, I can really feel the original recoil spring getting softer. Can actually feel the slide moving slower back to its location. I'll give it another 500 rds on the next trip and see if I'll get malfunctions. Then, will change recoil spring, if I experience several hang ups.
Recoil spring only? Clean it? Wiped down, and grease?
A couple SIGs and a few others
Your attention to detail and willingness to do this is outstanding. Great shooting. I just picked up a low round count KC Nickel 228 .I'm going to try and get decent pictures very soon. I'll also try and document the project JK Robar finish thru the season of IDPA beginning this Spring.
I'd rather be armed and unharmed than unarmed and harmed.
That was awesome. Thank you for the details and the detailed pics, it's very interesting to me. I can't believe the gun cleaned up so well.
|Just mobilize it|
Can’t think of a better person to do a 228 endurance test! Great write up Q!
Valentine's Day shoot. Good old Ni P228 continues to chuck along. 500 rds mag dump was not enough to completely punch through. Still, it was great fun.

Wow! That's just incredible! Thanks!

Awesome target, Q!
Heart; nice touch
great stuff, thanks for sharing this info.
Wow, 5 days 3000 rds,
Must have had lots of excess ammo laying around.
When I went to Gunsite, we took 600 for the pistol, 600 for the AR and 250 for the shotgun and that was costly.

The burning question I want to ask is were you shooting up an old stockpile of ammo, or did you find a truckload sale on 9mm ammo?
Congratulations on taking on this monumental effort.
