Absolutely, that would be a good test.So he really tried to break a well-built gun. I personally think all of these "torture tests" are stupid. Who treats a gun like this? A family friend was in Viet Nam and shot a 1911. According to him, every time they had a break, they'd clean their guns. What these tests don't show is, how does it shoot with different ammo under reasonable conditions? If we're going to do a "torture test" let's try it with a variety of self-defense loads. I don't bury my guns in sand, so that "test" shows me nothing with ball loads. My point is, we have a ton of guns that will pass these so-called "torture tests" but how do they feed a huge hollow-point when held sideways or even upside-down? I'm not knockin' the post, just sayin'.
