No, I don't think anything is likely to fail yet in my lovely little beast, but I always recognize things can and will fail. Anyone actually worn anything out yet, small parts, large parts, anything anyone noted as failure prone? Mine probably has less than 2K rounds through it, so I haven't seen any damage or wear parts yet. I expect it to run for several thousand more rounds as is, honestly.

Mine has been used in several classes, been used for ammo testing, and is used to shoot out-of-spec ammo that won't chamber in other guns. It shoots accurately, and never fails to cycle.

Even running it suppressed and over gassed, the recoil doesn't get out of control.

Nothing has worn out or broken so far.

Only complaint is that it gets about 300fps less than my ARP 223 barrel, and the only explanation is its 556 chamber keeps pressures low.

Mine is the gun I use when I have out of spec ammo that won't chamber in my AR. Especially the hotter ammo. It eats everything, and shoots it all accurately. I've used it for taking corners, complex floor plans, and entering thresholds. It's bone stock, and it is flawless...except for velocity. It suffers a 300fps disadvantage vs my 12.5" AR. That's enough that I don't use the gun as my primary.

So far nothing has broken, but I baby it.

Hahahahaha, I answered twice! Lemme reread my first comment to see if I contradicted myself. Need sleep.
