    Thanks for sharing West.

    The guy apparently experienced a couple of FTEs with "rusty wolf ammo" and then decided to do a 1000 round functionality test in an hour and a half. Have never shot that many consecutive rounds through a Steyr, but it makes my arm ache just thinkin about it.

    Let's see:
    He saves a couple of cents per round on cheap ammo the actually has rust on it; and then has to spend a couple of hundred extra bucks to prove that it was the cheap ammo that was the problem. This guy must be the head of Homeland Security or Health and Human Services vacationing in Central America.

    I wouldn't be too hard on the guy, maybe he just wanted an excuse to blow a thousand rounds through his Steyr.
    Glad he was able to fire off all those rounds without a problem even though he didn't clean the gun.

    After all, he was willing to share his "test" with the world and conceivably save other folks some money
    or at least provide some entertainment and reassurance regarding the functionality of these fine pistols.

    Now, I can dig that. :)


    P.S. on a serious note, lesson learned: do not put rusty or otherwise defective ammo in a good gun, no matter how good an idea it seems at the time.

    It was me.

    Hello gentleman it was my gun on that test and to be honest it was FUN!!!! The reason I was testing the Wolf Ammo is that given the restrictions on weapons and ammo that were imposed to Guatemala we cannot have taht much of variety here.

    I will never use wolf ammo again ever, but I wanted to be sure it was the ammo and not the pistol thats why I went with the vendor (my friend Santiago) he is the one shooting the pistol Im behind the camera, I got to say THATS Customer service.

    I just traveled to the US with some of my contry manager and :p I convinced them to crry the 11 ponds of ammo per person allowed, now I have Hydras, Rangers, Silvertips, Gold Dots and Tritons Im really eager to test those mighty bullets.

    Just one clarification, money is no issue (today thank god).

    It is all about having a good time and willing to share it with friends.

    Saludos from Guatemala.

    Hi Jorge,

    Thanks for sharing your video with us.
    Glad you were having fun and that you have a friend like Santiago who is willing to run a thousand rounds through a gun to prove that it functions OK. (I think maybe he likes shooting and it is not too much like work for him ) :)

    Please post a report of your adventures with other ammo, also.

    I forgot to tell you that after the test, Santiago changed the extractor for a new one, and gave me another for spare, plus he gave me a new guide rod wich im using with the M40, I also have the conversion for the M9.

    Regards


    Jorge
