How did the barrel look after the 20,000 rounds?

Still looks great. Bore still bright. Lands/grooves still sharp. No apparent deterioration to my unmagnified eyes.

I was wondering if you ran your finger nail over the wear marks on the barrel, could you feel them?

Gun is at SIG right now for full spa treatment. But, I don't recall feeling anything other than a smooth surface.

Thanks for reporting phase 2, Q.

Ni finish held up admirably.

That P228 is getting a well deserved “spa” day at SIG.

I do not believe I could do four one thousand round days in a row. Happy to hear you held up well also! Big Grin

Shucks! I was hoping to see how many rounds it would take before small parts/springs started to break. Thanks for doing this!

When you send a stamped slide gun in for the full service package, do they mess with the anything about the breech block (like replace the roll pins or something), or do they just leave it alone?

It is complete tear down and cleaning. The roll pins, among other things, are replaced.
