I have several 1911's, including two in 9mm - one 3" and one 5". I've been wanting to get another Government 9mm but the only ones better than what I already owned are from custom shops and very expensive. I've read a few reviews about the Smith & Wesson Pro 9mm and every one was very good. This pistol is all that and more.
The finish is top notch, and the frame and rail are very nicely matched. It has a full length guide rod and doesn't need an Allen wrench for disassembly. Aesthetically the pistol has nice touches, with black safeties and mag-release and a black and stainless hammer that complement the satiny metal. The grips are a "digital" design from RoCo and feel natural, while the two magazines that came with it were Wilson Combat. The scalloped slide serrations are the icing on the cake, for me.
Out of the box the pistol performed flawlessly. Priced nicely between an entry-level pistol and one from a custom shop costing twice as much, S&W 1911 Pro shouts "custom." This is an absolutely fantastic shooter and I'll certainly consider getting it's .45 caliber stablemate in the future.
