Didn't "they" make the slides start long so that they could be blended after the barrel was fit? Maybe this slide never saw the blending step.

S&W's extractor is .125 (vs .175 for traditional) tall and is centered at the firing pin and not slightly below like a regular 1911 extractor. When the barrel unlocks the extractor has little if any...

Great review! Can you give us the traditional shot from the back showing the slide to frame fit? I know it isn't an accurate indicator, but it would still be interesting.

Shaving off a few ounces isn't hard. Ditch the full length guide rod for a hollow GI style and swap to an aluminum mainspring housing/mag well. Changing grips can also help.

A traditional internal extractor. Real Novak sight cuts without the gap under the rear sight. A plunger tube that is properly staked.

Yes it doesn't have the Swartz style firing pin safety.

Getting a 3.5 pound trigger with a 23 pound mainspring is no problem. Mainspring doesn't have a huge effect on trigger weight although it does change the "feel."

They don't use the same external extractor as the S&W 1911. Not even close. Different part and different location in the slide. S&W also saw fit not to reuse the S&W 1911 design on the M&P .45.
