Smith & Wesson SW1911 170261 45ACP Performance Center
[170261]
$1,776.00

This guns gets 4 stars because of value, not quality. It is a great gun... just maybe not $1700 great. Fit and finish are flawless. And after an extended brake in it is a near perfect 1911. It did take about 600 rounds to brake in with lots of frequent cleaning in the beginning. The safety was initially a bit mussy and initially I had feeding problems but all of that worked itself out after a few hundred rounds. Now the safety changes position smoothly with a satisfying 'snic' and feeding and extraction have been 300/300. The trigger is close to ideal in my opinion: 3.5 - 4 lbs and perfectly crisp with zero over travail. If I do my part the gun will shoot 3/4 inch groups at 10 yards all day. I like the fish-scale for and aft grips on the slides -very positive grip without taring up the hands. The mag well is nicely flared and the mags that gun comes with are of fair quality (Im a WC mag snob mind you). The slide lock up and bushing started out too tight, but again loosened up nicely very snug over the first few hundred rounds. I would strongly recommend using plenty of high quality lube and cleaning every couple mags for the first 50 - 100 rounds.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
