Tomorow, I will pass a significant milestone with my 22/45 mkIII Target version. I have had it just short of 3 years, I am about 40 rounds short of 5000 rounds. I will pass that tomorrow. I have had only two incidents of failure to extract both due to Remington Thunderbolts both of which had split cases. I have had no failures to fire or load. I am a habitual cleaner so maybe that is part of it. Anyway thought you guys might like to know how good this pistol has been to me. By the way it is also a tack driver with typical 1 to 2 inch groups at 25 yards when my hands and old eyes are good that day. life is good as the man says.
