I am the original owner, and purchased this new in October 1999.

It has between 500 - 1,000 rounds through it, but I haven't shot this much (if at all) since around 2002 or 2003. All of the ammo was full-metal-jacket (FMJ), some of Wolf (old style, with the laquer coating). No problems were encountered (at least none that I can recall).

UPDATE: I shot one magazine through this on June 30 2012 to post a video on this page, but my friend who was shooting the video messed it up.

There is holster wear on the edges, the "idiot mark" below the slide release lever, and a scratch on the right-side of the slide below the rear-sight. While never my every-day carry (EDC) gun, I did carry this for protection on camping trips.

If I have time, I'll take some better pictures.

I know I always keep saying that one of these days I'll get a proper setup with studio lighting,

rather than depending on either the crappy lighting inside my house or certain times of day when natural sunlight is favorable.

Or maybe I should just learn to use Photo Shop.

Dust sticking to the oil on the pistol shows up really well in most of these pictures below.
