    I love my 226 also - but have to say (skeptic/cynic in me) -

    Each ''torture'' mode was shown in principle but not in practice - clever editing could have helped too. This is not to say the gun would not survive abuse (I cringed thinking of being this mean to a gun!) but frankly I cannot take the whole thing as strictly credible the way presented.

    Somewhat sensationalist, as against scientific!

    Well the grips staying on after the helo drop did make me wonder. I can almost picture some guy doing that, then complaining over on SIG Forum that the finish got scratched!

    I don't know about that video but if it can be used by the Navy SEAL teams without many troubles that's good enough for me.

    I got the idea that when they dropped it, they dropped the naked one in the grass from 150' and the frozen one onto the tarmac, which would have broke the impact a bit. I did love mine, though. Wish I still had it.....
