Need some info before I purchase!!




Ok so my local pusher put this on the inter-web..


Pretty sure I like the price
But what model is it??
I don't see a "dura coat" model, gotta be parkerized yeah?
My other is the citadel officers model and I love it so I know this
is just as good UNLESS one of y'all tell me something I don't know.

Any advice/comments welcome

it is the Full Size Government model. I have one and love it, it shoots as acurate as the higher priced guns and is as reliable as a pet rock. and yes it is parkerized.

I would call to see if it is a Dura Cote or a Park,is that the OTD price.? Centerfire is cheaper, but we all like to keep the LGS in business. Dura Cote Is more money, if it is Dura Cote. I would like the Park better myself.

I have one of those and absolutely love it. $389 isn't a bad price. Centerfire might be about $10 cheaper. I'd support the local guy, plus no FFL fee.
