I have a C9 so I know that it will be covered by the best handgun warranty in the world! My concern is that when I decide to purchase a 45 or .40 cal, how long will it last before the frame breaks? Or the slide cracks etc... I understand that springs and pins need replaced after several thousand rounds, but when the frame is cracked it's pretty much a hazzard( I think, but maybe I'm wrong there). I have just read some articles on the browning hi-power and the beretta 92 and found that after 30,000 rounds the Beretta falls apart and the Browning is like a third of the durability of the Beretta. So I ask you fellow shooters, if I decide to buy a 1911 springfield, taurus, kimber etc... how many rounds can I put through it, before it turns to sh&? If the steel frame or aluminum frame crack after 30 to 50 thousand rounds, should I get a polymer frame? Thanks in advance!
