    $50,000 bet...which would you choose?

    If you had to place a bet where you *HAD* to put in $1,000 and had the chance to win $50,000 (50:1 odds)...which gun would you bet on to:

    Fire 10,000 rounds with NO malfunctions (No FTE, No FTF, Nothing)...

    You cannot clean the gun, you cannot replace components that you think may be getting worn.

    --

    I guess I'll answer first. Springfield Armory XD 9mm Service.

    H&K P7. I believe it already did it at LFI as a test abuse gun.

    I'd also go HK USP...I've lost count of how many rounds have been fired from my USPc .40 without a hitch of any kind, but it's in the multiple thousands...

    XD9 or Glock 17. If it were my money but not my hands shooting it, I'd go with the Glock. If I had to shoot the darn thing, then XD.

    Yes, but you have cleaned it haven't you?

    I seem to remember reading an article when I was considering the XD I now own, where a test like this had been done on the XD.

    Aside from that, the single shot idea was great. Probably not what the OP intended but nice try.

    H&k Usp

    Based on my personal experience, I'd probably go with an H&K USP - full size rather than compact, because they are bigger and look stronger than the compacts.

    I have a USP 45 full size with several thousand rounds through it, and has been absolutely reliable. I'd bet on it to go 10,000 rounds without a problem.

    Without cleaning???? None. With only a basic cleaning every 500 rounds or so (no detail disassembly), then the XD, HK USP, Glock, and my Springfield Armory 1911.

    Now be nice I am guessing he means a semi no bolt actions, lever actions either, so mine in the HK USP .45 I have gone though several thousand (over 3K and wolf's) with no failures or malfunctions and not cleaning it once, then putting it back in service as is for my CCW, in the past over 10K rounds the only problem I have ever had was when I had a bad lot of factory ammo and split a case that jammed in the gun. BTY it was one of those intensive advanced hand gun courses, I actually had blisters on my shooting hand at the end.

    I would think Glock or SA XD series would be fine choices for such a demonstration. The HK P7, as mentioned earlier, would also be up to the task I would imagine.

    As much as I love my SA 1911, I wouldn't subject it to such abuse, and without proper attention I would be pleasantly surprised to see one reach that mark.
