Will S&W make an E series in 9mm?

I have an E series 1911 and like it quite a bit. While Iím aware of the Pro or Performance Center versions, but why doesnít S&W make a 9mm E series?

Think it would sell reasonably well given all the other 1911 manufacturers going in that direction- must be a demand for it.

Know Iím thinking of one

Thoughts?

They don't appear very eager to jump on this trend for some reason. I think a 9mm version would sell very well. However, they need to do a much better job of marketing their entire E-Series. Too many folks have little to no idea about these pistols, and that's a damned shame!!!!!

Sshhhhh! Let's keep it a secret a little longer, at least until I get my 1911 PCSC to go with it's little brother the "E" seies.

I agree that the E guns are Rodney Dangerfield items. You just never hear about them. I think that they are maybe the best bang for your buck out there, and I have carried one daily for five years. That should tell you all you need to know about them, as I am a picky bastard. Just don't see a better gun out there for my needs.

Word is their is a 10mm SW1911 coming, I too wish for a 9mm E Series. 9mm/10mm 1911s sell far better than 45s these days.

10mm E series would be on my to buy list but Smith seems more interested in plastic pistols.

I agree, but am sure itís due to their profitability.

I ended up getting a DW TCP in 9mm and have posted about it in the DW section. Am very happy with it, but would have been tempted by a E series 9mm for sure

Only 1911s I own now are 2 DWs and my E series.

I've got one Kimber 9mm, two Springfield 9mms, one DW Specialist commander 9mm, STI Trojan 9mm 1911s. I've wanted to cut it down to just a couple, but I have a real hard time letting any of them go as they all shoot great and the money savings on ammo afforded me to buy a couple more guns..

I'ld think it would be a no brainer for S&W to make the E Series in 9MM. They already have in their original 1911s' and the 9MM is one of the hottest trends in 1911s'.

I agree that a 9mm E Series 1911 would sell well and I'd pick one up for myself, but unfortunately, I believe your assertion that S&W is more interested in marketing plastic pistols is also correct which is why the E Series isn't being marketed as aggressively as it should be.

Didn't Doug Koenig shoot the 9mm in Steel Challenge?

Seems the perfect marketing and branding that gun companies jump on.

There's a couple of DK 45's some where in my safe!

S&W E-Series the most under rated 1911's of all time!

All the best in 2020,

Koenig shoots for Ruger these days. I know that Julie G has shot the Pro Series 9mm 1911 in the past. That said, the Pro Series 9mm 1911 is a fantastic gun and I'm not sure what you would gain in the E Series... I've owned E-series 1911's and I have Pro Series 1911 in 9mm and it is a complete tack driver. I think it would be pretty cool I'm just not sure what incentive S&W has to bring one to market....
