same here, which is kinda an a-reaming if ya ask me since its only like 70 bucks off MSRP. also something that kinda got to be was the fact that the gun shop offered 2% off on debit or check and 4% off on cash. I pay 1000 cash and 300 debit and they only give me 2%, i mean come on, give me the 4% or meet me half way at least. But its perfecto and im happy so thats it for my complaining.

300 bucks cheaper if you shop around and willing to wait.
E series S&Ws are mighty fine 1911s.

you could have handed it back, thanked them for their time and walked out the door. MSRP aside, an item is only worth what someone (you) is willing to pay for it.

Besides, once you start putting rounds down range you'll forget all about the 2% - 4%

Great find! I feel like people are starting to find them more frequently now, which is a good sign because a couple months ago there were none to be found.

Wow that's a beauty. I like the S&W slide serrations. They look similar to the serrations on my M&P 9c.

Now you need to get a VMII holster for it to really make it shine.

Identical to what my set-up will be, only I have the 2-tone SC Bobtail!

Dying to know how it carries for you, and if you can sit in a car OK or not.
