New Special Combat Govt in Hard Chrome

Pulled the trigger on a blem SCG in hard chrome on GB. Did ask for photos and I cannot see any issues. I will see when it comes in. This version has the checkered frontstrap.

I have purchased blems before and never noticed any blems. Not sure what makes it a blem. Price seemed good and photos showed the gun in the custom shop box so we shall see. I always wanted this gun, so I hope it meets my expectations.

Photos and range report as soon as I get it.

Congrats. I have that model and it's a terrific pistol. Note that the recently produced ones are actually IonBond rather than hard chromed. It's possible that yours is from when they were still using hard chrome though.

The two I have are perfect. No cosmetic problems, and never a problem with feeding anything or ejecting. Again, you will really like it.

I bought one new in 2006 from a LGS in 45ACP and love it. I did put some new stocks on it from Esmeralda.

Picked up the new SCG today. Pics up later. It is actually stainless with ionbond finish according to the box. Looks great. Great checkering on the frontstrap.

It's actually carbon steel with a stainless colored ionbond finish.

In my opinion you cant go wrong with ANY model of the Special Combat Government models. They may not be the tightest, the best fit model of gun made but its a colt. And a high end colt. Value will only go up. I had an old staked on front sight trijicon sighted Special Combat Government model. And a hard chromed Special Combat Government model. Never shot either model. They were very nice. Both like new. Wish i still had both today. Enjoy it.

Here are some pics of the new piece..

First time out target at 7 and 15 yards. Extremely accurate. That is also what the test target showed. One ragged hole. I shot S&B ball and Remington Golden Sabers.

Very happy with this.

When mine was new I shot if offhand at 25 yards. I shot 6 rounds at each of my "highclass" targets. Below the best group I got.



Now from a Ransom Rest I can get down to less than 3 inches at 50 yards but shooting with one of those is about as much fun as watching paint dry.
