What autoloaders have you all owned that haven't had a single malfunction not including bad ammo? High round count rifles or pistols...

My only autoloader that hasn't malfunctioned is my M&P 5.56 AR15 with 600+ rounds. Though not particularly high round count still pretty good.

My P95 has been perfect (as in no failures of any kind, including ammo related) through almost 13,000 rounds :D

Agree---P95 is about as reliable semi-auto you can own. At ANY price.:)

My SR1911 - 1500+ rounds, not a single malfunction.

All of my Marks, but then I have refurbished them all with new extractors and recoil spring assemblies, as needed. Any failures I've had are mostly ammo related, now. Considering the round count on these, reliability has been amazing.

My SIG P226 in 9mm has over 5500 rounds without a hiccup. My CZ P-01 is not far behind and only issues it has had is with Remington 115gr TMJ, which is an OAL shorter cartridge than any other 115gr I've ever seen. As long as I pick ammo other than the Remmy it has been flawless for about 4000 rounds.

I don't have any Ruger center fire autos , but I have never had an issue with my Beretta 96, with around 6-8k rounds. Nor with my HK p30 with 3k rounds. I did have two failures to feed with my Glock 30sf in the first 500 rounds due to limp wristing. Some would call that a break in period. It has been perfectly reliable since.

Most combat semi autos these days are flawless. As much as I love my revolvers I have had far more issues with them (mainly getting unburnt powder under the extractor after 100 rounds) than I have with any semi auto. I would say put a revolver first in reliability for the first fifty rounds after cleaning, but for more than that without cleaning a quality semi auto is hard to beat. Note this means I would prefer a revolver for carry or home defense... Semi auto for an apocalypse...

My first gun was a Springfield XD9 which has performed flawlessly for thousands of rounds. And at opposite ends of the spectrum, my Kimber Custom II and Hi-Point 995TS have also been almost perfect, the HP had one FTF during the break in period. My 10/22 hasn't been perfect but I think 99% of the problems have been ammo-related. Since I've been using Blazers and Stingers almost exclusively, there's been not a single hiccup.

None in my life. Most were ammo related, to be fair, except for some Beretta .22LR Bobcats.

I would only trust a revolver for SD, though.

My Glock 26. I've had it since 2006 and with well over 10K rounds without issue. I still can't believe it myself.

Bought a Mark 2 P512, the 22/45 when Ruger released them in the early to mid 1990s. Probably 3000 rounds through it with two FTF due cheap ammo. None caused by gun. These two duds would not fire in a Single Six either and both guns had solid FP strikes.
I do strip it down and clean it regularly.
