Here's a review from a guy who has a track record of being pretty up-front; he's not one of the gun mag whores who would praise anything (ever read Guns & Ammo or Shooting Times or... and read, "This thing is a piece of junk!")
I bought my 345 SS a month ago. Took it to the range for the first time last week...... one word AWSOME!!! put 250 rounds through it, not one jam. Fits nice in my hand and recoil is not bad. My Dad has a colt Gov 80 series 45. I almost love this 45 just as much!!! Oh, and cleaning this gun is easy to do as well. Obvious to see, I highly reccomend. Good luck!
