Now I don't mean to mislead with my subject line, so don't be disappointed. I didn't do the famed "glock torture test" or anything like that.

What I did do was not clean my 4095 for at least 600 rounds. All ammo shot were reloads using Ranier plated 180 grn bullets and an undisclosed charge of unique(aka: FLAMMABLE DIRT).

Now for the results. Very few malfunctions. I did have a couple of FTE's, but that is most likely attributed to my bent firing pin :oops: I also got a couple of double feeds on my last box. Not sure of the cause there but considering how DIRTY this thing is, i'm not surprised.

Sorry no pictures, but let me give you an idea of how insanely dirty this thing was. For those not familiar with unique, the name flammable dirt really does hold credence. The otherwise polished feed ramp had a measurably thick caking of crud. The rails were caked. The firing pin was almost black. The inside of the slide had to be scraped clean. It took me two hours to get the barrel reasonably clean. It was ridiculous! Through it all it was still happy to give great groups when I do my part.

Just thought I would share!

:p

While pix would have been nice you couldn't have seen much. My camera is terrible, especially at macro shots. You would have just seen a black duracoated gun with some black crud :lol:

The barrel was very dirty as my cleaning made evident :roll: but it wasn't simply horrid in terms of how it looked through the barrel.

I did a extended shoot with a Hi-Point 995 over the past year firing nothing but Wolf Performance 115gr FMJ ammunition. I started with a perfectly cleaned and lubed carbine and fired it for over eight months time during various plinking, training and competition shoots without a formal cleaning. The only maintenance performed was a single pass of a bore snake once a week. I figure the round count at 4000 to date with only three failures to feeds due to my user error of not fully seating the magazine during rapid reloads. Not bad for a Hi-Point!

Geezzzz......what were you reloading with...black powder?
Hey. Unique is only one step up from black powder. The cleaning procedure is the same for both. :D :p :D :p
