    I have a N.C.P. 391 conversion, that I have over 45.000 rounds through it. The only thing, that I have ever had break was the recoil buffer. I guess I have been lucky. I am still shooting the original gas piston and the trigger hammer braces and the connecting link. Those are the parts that I hear that most frequently break, I have changed the recoil spring ,twice and also the hammer spring. I do keep the gun clean clean. I think that means a lot.The recoil buffer does not break, it came loose from the receiver and Had to be replaced.

    RidgeRunner: Your experience is the same as mine and I agree with your advice. It's pointless to start trying to upgrade parts for longevity. I've heard just as many complaints about aftermarket pistons and bolt connecting rods as the original ones. I have an extra factory piston, hammer braces, bolt connecting rod (the only thing that ever broke) mainsprings, which I repace every 20,000 rounds or so, and a recoil buffer. I probably won't ever need any of these parts, but if something breaks in the middle of a shoot, I want to be prepared.
