    Beware the extended slide release.
    Make sure that your thumb doesn't touch it, when you place it on the safety lever.

    Looks nice, hope it runs well for ya'.

    Gotta' echo Steve on the extended slide stop, pending on certain variables it can be more trouble than it's worth.

    thankyou I like the extended slide relase it a plus for me I have short thumbs & it hard for me to relase the slide with a standard slide relase that what I like about the extended slide relase & extended mag relase it great for guys like me with short thumbs from what I've been hearing & reading about it it should run like a sewing maching I had one before the only reason I don't have it now & bought this one I traded for a gun S&W don't make any more a model 66 .357 Magnum 4 inch barrel I have a magazine article about it was rated as the best gun to buy on a beer budget I don't drink beer but I'm on beer budget LOL marine if it ok with you I would like to put bigger pics of it on here if it don't take up to much space on this formun I will also put pics of my model 66 & if I can find that magazine I will tell which one & what page the article start on

    If you are right-handed, and you use both hands to hold the pistol, and you use the slide-lock (instead of "sling-shotting"), then I suggest that you learn to use your left-hand thumb to manipulate the slide-lock lever.
    In that case, I also suggest that you switch to the normal-length slide-lock lever.

    Whenever I find it possible, I do my best to count the rounds I'm firing.
    I like to leave one round in the gun's chamber, while doing a quick reload.
    That does two good things:
    If you are attacked while switching magazines, you have one quick shot available to you, no matter what the condition of the gun is, and
    You neither need to use the slide-lock, nor do you need to "sling-shot" the slide.

    I suppose that, in the middle of a real street war, I will find it very difficult to remember to count my rounds.
    But it was not terribly difficult, under the pressure of an IPSC/SWPL match.

    That's a handsome looking gun. I'm a big fan of stainless.

    45;
    Although you may have lots of experience, I didn't know that.
    Even though you may have lots of experience, that doesn't preclude you from learning something from me. Nor does it preclude me from learning from you.
    If I were to begin with the assumption that you already know all the things I may offer you, then I wouldn't offer you anything. Would that be a better method?

    I was taught that, when someone offers me advice, I should listen politely, and then say, "Thank you."
    I was also taught that I needn't ever use the advice I'd been given. My only duty was to listen politely and to say, "Thank you."
    (It was also acceptable to say, "I already know that, but I thank you for offering it to me.")

    Revisiting this thread.I was at the gun show today and one thing on my hunt list was a decent 1911( meaning not high end custom) and ran across a good deal on one of these.Actually of the ones I looked at today this one really stuck out to me as a pretty good bang for the buck. Im just wondering how it is working out for you.Anybody else have experience with this gun? Ive done a search so far havent come up with much in the way of actual user comments. My local Acadamy Sports carries these and according to them,they cant keep them in stock.Thanks.

    My Government Model has about 1,000+ rounds thru it, and it has been 100% reliable. It has shot all kinds of ammo and used cheap $5.97 mags from Cheaper Than Dirt up to a Wilson Combat mag. It has been accurate from the start and darn fun to shoot.

    Thanks-Im hearing good things about this gun but cant find one anywhere.Did see one guy at the show last weekend that had 2 of them but I wanted to look into them further. Academy sells them but are back ordered.The manager there told me they sell pretty much as soon as they hit the shelf.I may have to wait til all the hype dies down a bit.

    Best bang for your buck! No malfs through 1000+ rounds. Near custom fit. Very accurate.
    I cut the wide paddles off with a dremel coutoff disc. They are now 1/8" wide or less.

    The American classic line is a nice line of 1911s. You can make a very good gun out of them. Out of the 8 1911s I have 3 of them are American classics. Out of the box they are not that bad, I put a wilson combat barrel and bushing, along with a new hammer and trigger in the blued version of your gun. After everything was said and done I have about 700 into the weapon. It is very nice and well fitted pistol.

    Since my last post my Gov't model is looking at about 3000 rounds and it is still performing 100%.

    Which means I can't use this pistol for malfunction practice!
