Unfortunately, the only answer is, until it breaks. Assuming you paid the money for a solid brand, purchased from a reputable company and take care of it properly, then it should last you years. But you won't know that until it craters. As for brand new, fire a few mags through. If it cycles properly, sounds right and is properly lubricated you should be fine.
