P88 Frame Cracking problem

I would like some input by people with hands on experience shooting large amounts of ammo through a Walther P88. Please only reply if you have actual experience in firing at least 7,000 rounds out of your Walther P88, counted not estimated.

It was reported that in the U.S. Military trials of the 1980's Walther submitted 2 P88's both of which cracked their aluminum frames at the 7,000 round mark. Of course we are speaking of full power Nato ammo which was noted on cracking the slides of Beretta 92's but at a far, far higher round count.

So far my P88 has had 3,000 rounds out of it and it was not hot Nato rounds. So far no problems.
