Q, what does the bore look like after all those rounds? When buying used some people like to have a pic of the rifling. Perhaps a few good pics of the locking part of the barrel would tell a better story.

I'll post pics of the 25k bore, next to a brand new P228 barrel, when I get a chance. Of all the tons of pics I took, I didn't take any of the bore at intervals. Roll Eyes

High amount of rounds fired in short time can be a cause to the cracked frame, shooting double or triple taps all day long is not what the design was made for, but who knows... For the rollpins it's not the roundcount that is predominant, it's only when one or both pins cracks that the breachblock will move and add stress to the frame. The tip is: after every range sessions you must to try to move the breachblock up and down on both sides. If the breachblock moves, just a little bit , then the rollpins must be changed, if not, you're good to go. We have here in the swiss army lots of P75 with more than 20'000 rounds and no rollpins replacement. It's seems that the p226 is more prone to breack her rollpins than other P22X models, don't ask me why, i've read that somewhere.

I noticed this webpage as well. But, have you tried to order one though? I ordered one from them recently and my tracking number says it should be here tomorrow. After I ordered mine, the website page info under the "add to cart" button changed from "in-stock" to "check-availability". When I click that button, it says it is expected to ship in 23-32 days or some big interval like that. So, I'm not so sure they have them anymore.
