Well I now have shot 37,000 rounds through my Colt Government 38 Super. It is still very accurate and dependable. The slide is getting a little loose and I did have to locktight both of the sights.I have got my monies worth out of this gun but I will never let it go. I have gone through 23 recoil springs but I have not broken any parts yet. It is a bit on the ugly side but I love the way it has worn. I just love my Colt 1911's.
