    I'm looking to buy my first 1911 & needed feed back on this model.
    My primary use would be just range shooting & practicing for my CHL
    renewal. I currently qualify with my Sig 40 cal .. but I have always
    wanted a 1911. I thought about the Colt Annv III model ...but I wanted a gun
    to shoot not a "safe queen". Is the Hard Chrome finish
    one that will last for years... Please advise pro & cons on this 45.
    I am willing to pay for something that will last another 100 years ;)

    JW! Go over to the Introducctions Thread and tell us about yourself.

    I don't own nor have I shot the Special Combat Government. I own a Colt 1991A1 Government and like it very much. This gun you are looking at is a very nicce piece. Not sure anything will last 100 years, unless it is unfired and well cared for
