Yes I've owned 4 P226's, all Marui's.

I didn't include all the other custom P226's I've built for people (all with the Marui P226), I know they haven't seen any failures yet with propane use, and some see very regular use.

1) Manufacturer, Model Name
Classic Army CA36 (G36 full size)
2) Date Obtained
Feburary 2007
3) Initial Cost
Gun + battery and 50rd mag $680
4) New or Used
New
5) Mechanical Problems (Gearbox issues, hopup issues.. basically functional performance related)
Trigger contacts in mechbox separated, causing gun to stop firing. Probably after around 3,000-4,000 rounds.
Piston Head Seal went after about 18,000 rounds.
6) Esthetic Problems (Paint damage, cracks in body, loose parts.. physical construction related)
Cocking swivel lever extremly easy to break. -replaced with CA steel lever.
Foregrip pin falls out easily (fixed by threading it and holding it on with a screw)
7) Rounds fired between failures (think how many bags of BB's used before it failed)
4,000-ish before I had to fix the trigger contacts. Some other electrical issues (too much damned wire). Fired probably 15,000+ rounds through the gun.
8) Changes to Internals (upgrades, dates)
6.04mm Classic Army High Precision Barrel -May 10th. This was removed in September because CA tightbores suck. The gun in more accurate with the stock barrel.
MS100SP Spring -September 12th
Guarder Bearing Spring Guide -Sept 12th
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
Still hanging onto this thing, probably will for a long time yet to come!
10) Optional - Notes and Comments
This gun is made out of glass fiber, and is very, very solid. No flex or creak in the body. Lightweight and other than what was mentioned above very durable. The export sight (1.5x) has very poor eye relief and is hard to use with goggles. Replaced with SL8 rail, much better. Overall this is a great gun.

1) Manufacturer, Model Name
Tokyo Mauri FA-MAS F1
2) Date Obtained
March 2007
3) Initial Cost
$435
4) New or Used
Used
5) Mechanical Problems (Gearbox issues, hopup issues.. basically functional performance related)
Nothing so far.
6) Esthetic Problems (Paint damage, cracks in body, loose parts.. physical construction related)
The FA-MAS itself is creaky by default, easily fixed with some tape. The gun is completely solid though.
7) Rounds fired between failures (think how many bags of BB's used before it failed)
Close to 2,500 since I've owned it, no failures yet.
8) Changes to Internals (upgrades, dates)
Upgraded spring (120%, 330fps), Upgraded bushings
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
I bought it used for $450-ish. Sold for $400 November, 2007.
10) Optional - Notes and Comments
A lot of people complain about this gun being too creaky (which seems to make people think it's fragile) and about the old mechbox being unupgradable. The creaking IS NOT that bad and is easily fixed with some tape. I elemintated 90% of the creaking on mine. The gun IS durable, made out of strong ABS. The V1 mechbox is a tank, with an insane rate of fire. This gun is mildely upgraded and competes well.

1) Make and Model
-- KSC USP Compact (Japan version)
2) Date Purchased
-- Febuary 2006
3) Cost
-- $330 (bought from 007, hence the higher price)
4) New/Used
-- New
5) Mechanical Problems
-- Trigger broken x 2 (a known and well documented issue)
Safety no longer works, decocker still in operation (another known issue)
Unseated something in the blowback function (caused by dry-fire)
Valve-stem bent in one magazine during normal operation (haven't heard of this happening to anyone...)
6) Esthetic Problems
-- None, aside from wear and tear on the slide from being holstered in a FOBUS style holster, and the outerbarrel chambre also shows signs of wear.
7) Rounds Fired Between Failures
-- First trigger saw approx 6000-7000, second trigger has seen an equal number, perhaps a little less. Total rounds fired would be somewhere near 10 - 15k.
8) Changes to Internals
-- KSC Metal Slide/Outerbarrel, other older/used parts (from a parts piece) used to replace others that broke (due to my inexperience) while replacing the first trigger.
9) Resale Date and Value
-- N/A
10) Notes
-- This is my first and only gun, and is used as a primary 3x a week at TTAC3 currently. It's seen a lot of play, and hasn't always been treated like a showpiece. Propane only, as well as the occasional lapse in lubrication.
