How to check how many rounds have benn shot on a handgun by looking at it?
Im wondering about buying a new gun a friend is selling to me. The barrell shows lots of wear, got a ding on the top of it outside the ejector cam, probably from slide kicks and when disassembled, the are lots of round scratches around the barrell up and down from the shooting movement. Is it normal for a under 1000 shots gun (he says so)? It looks more like 10.000 rounds. Is there a way to determine an aproximate number of rounds shots by wear on certain parts?
