    It shoots as well as my stainless Colt Commander, Bob.

    I wouldn't necessarily say that I've run it "hard" but it's had two or three good workouts (maybe a couple hundred rounds each time) and I've been extremely pleased with it.

    I got rid of my Ruger LW commander. It shot fine but when I hammered it in IDPA it kept choking.different loads, different mags. Casual shooting it did fine.

    So far, I have ran mine till it’s too hot to touch the metal and it has been good to go. Probably as many rounds fired in 30 minutes as an entire IDPA match, without the cool down period in between stages.

    I use that white Tetra Gun grease, which seem to be an excellent lube for the metal guns.
