    Ummm OK, what did they think was going to happen?

    I think a better test would be for them to give Lima a 226 and let her drop it a few times.

    Gotta love Sig. Nothing surprising in the video, but I don't think I could bring myself to slug a great gun like that.

    The only way a Sig would take a hit like that in the real world is if it was in a helo/plane/vehicle crash of some sort or maybe a bomb/mortar/missle hit.

    That vid speaks volumes about Sigs [ I own a few myself ], but I think loaded would have been a better test.

    Did you notice the guy with the bat had a problem initially with that 9mm recoil on the first two shots?

    Then he muzzles his co-host as he faces the camera

    The timex of pistols------takes a lickin and keeps on ticking

    Thanks for throwing this one up QK, it's quite the test

    That's a clip from the Shooting Gallery tour of the SIG factory in Exeter, NH. I think I've still got that one on the DVR if you want to watch it, JD.

    I would think that all but the cheapest pistols would pass that test. I fail to see the big deal.

    He struck it square on the grip, which on lesser guns, can cause the magazine well to go out of square. It can also cause the mag release to fail, as well as break or knock out of alignment any pins, pivots, and springs in the trigger mechanism - including safeties. Take note that he had to strip the magazine out forcefully. Granted, it still worked - but even that 226 didn't make it out unscathed.

    Now, if they made one out of billet 6-4 titanium...

    Well, the U.S. Coast Guard selected the P229 after a 3 million round intensive torture test.
    Guessing that not too many cheapie firearms could have passed that one.

    It also looked like the slide didn't lock open after the second mag.

    Didn't Glock drop a G17 from a helicopter onto pavement, or something when they were new???
