    Firing 14,000 rounds in 20 minutes would be 11.6 rounds/second, or 700 rounds/minute.

    Which would mean someone fire a magazine fed, semi-automatic pistol at a higher rate of fire than the cyclic rate for a M-60 machine gun, and higher than the M-2. Both of which are fully automatic, and belt fed, meaning time isn't needed for magazine changes, because you can just keep linking belts.

    And this doesn't take into account the extreme heat that would be generated from prolonged firing at such a high rate. Do you happen to have a reference as to who conducted this testing?

    OP, if you are really concerned about it, take apart the slide.
    Thats my bad. They did 1,000 rounds in 14 minutes. I don't know where I got 20,000. Either way, the gun got so hot that the plastic on the RSA melted and the guide rod fell out the front. Here's the link to part 1:

    That sounds much, much more reasonable. Thanks for clarifying.
