I was wondering how long this would take

I'll be posting as an SW 1911 owner as soon as I track one down

Long time lurking...thought I'd throw a first post into the first thread in a new section...

On topic, would love to hear from some Sc users who have a fair amount of rounds throuh them. It is a very tempting package for carry in my opinion.

Here it is

I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, probably Wednesday or Thursday, but I thought I would post a pic of my new baby.

It's my forth Smith and second 1911

After looking long and hard at the SW1911 and a Kimber TLE....I think I've decided on the SW1911.

My local gun shop had one the other day for $699....and they also had the SC in stock. The SC felt soooo good in my hand, I may pick up both

High count Sc

Have run approx 800 + rds thru mine, in IDPA and action pistol matches, plus at home practices. No problems to date, trigger is improving, even though it wasn't bad to start. Don't think you can go wrong for the price and quality recieved. Up graded for carry w/ NS and "Bobtail" and abosolutly love this piece. Been wanting one since S&W produced the 1st 1911, finally. Only wear showing is color at wear points on Sc frame and where materail removed for "Bobtail", alum' black isn't holding up well. Looking to install a standard recoil rod and cap as soon as found, for ease of press check and take down. Harlie

I think S&W has finally made something that has my interest.

And which version would it be that you like? I'll tell you, in my opinion not one of them is all that asthetically pleasing to the eye. What gets me is the attention to detail where fitting is concerned. Granted the mag well could have been blended on the PC, but the frame to slide fit is so tight on mine it would worry me if my 945 wasn't the same way and proven itself. A Briley barrel, wilson sights, koenig hammer, and some really agressive checkering among other things make the PC one sweet pistol. The other two full size versions I've handled also had a remarkable attention to detail in their execution. Both were fit nicely and felt very good. I won't bother saying the billboards needed to disappear as thats been well covered.
I have yet to handle an Sc version but from all accounts I've read everything seems to follow suit in build. A step in the right direction for S&W for sure.

What's that?

All this time I was under the impression that S&W only made fantastic double action revolvers and second rate autos.

Now it's the other way around. They've ruined their chances of ever selling me a revolver untill they fix the holes in em, but the autos just keep getting better and better. I've had to force myself to stop looking at the 952 pc gun.

Count me in..

After a late start to shooting, just last summer ( I am forty something) my latest purchase is the S&W 1911.
Just picked her up 2 nights ago.
First outing is Saturday.
If the quality is like my 686 and 4506-1 I am sure it will be love all over again.

Great to have a place to ask some real experts questions.
My 1st is. Who sells good mags?

lovetoshoot, I have experience with Wilson 7 and 8 rounders both work great, Mecgar 7 rounders, very good no problems springs are stronger then the Wilson’s, Colt mags from the early eighties, perfect wish I could still buy them, Current Colt mags., good but the follower tips so I replaced the follower and spring with a Mecgar follower and spring, almost as good as the older Colt mags. I buy them from Brownells. On order are some Metalforms to see how they perform.

PS run-on over
