I looked for a 1911 that had a good fit and finish with a milled front strap for a while. Few under 1k fit the bill. I chose the E Series because it was a terrific value. The frame to side fit has just a little play, that and the sights are not standard 1911 sights are my only complaint. The gun has a great fit and finish, a decent trigger, and is very accurate. The external extractor worked flawless. I have put 100 rounds through it and no issues at all. Best value 1911 there is IMO. Sure the Ruger or Rock Island may shoot just as good, but it's not quite on the same level.

My first stainless 1911, bought it for the looks, but it is a great shooter. Great gun.

This is one excellent handgun, both in looks & performance. Had been wanting a 1911 for several months & this one caught my eye first, but then I started looking at the Springfields. Finally decided to get a Springfield & drove to Bud\'s (I live 30 minutes away), but after looking at a couple Springfields, I asked to see this S&W. WOW.......Soon as I held it I knew I had to have it. The way it feels in your hand is just perfect. Not too big, not too small. Haven\'t put a full box of ammo thru it yet, but so far it\'s been perfect. Shooting it is a pleasure & I was knocking plastic water bottles down on 2nd shot. You will LOVE this gun if U purchase it. I have purchased several firearms at Bud\'s & no complaints at all with them. I ordered online, but took the \"In Store\" pickup so I could get the cash price. (Perk of living closeby). All in all, I give Bud\'s a 10, and I give this S&W a 10. You can\'t go wrong with this one.

I have bought rifles and several hand guns and ammunition from Bud's. They keep you informed from the time that it is ordered to the time that it is shipped. The simple way that their website works, even someone that is not computer savy can breeze through it like a song. I jus ordered another hand gun. Which was a Smith and Wesson 1911 E model, this gun is a work of art. I have owned many pistols, glocks included but never had a pistol that looked and felt like this in my hand. It shoots flawlessly. As far as Bud's Guns go as long as they are this easy to deal with, ship your product quickly and always a fair price, I will be a Bud's Gun customer from now on. Thank you Terry Harris 100% satisfied customer.

Could not be more satisfied with the quality and craftsmanship that Smith and Wesson put into this excellent 1911 Gun, it's flawless, tight fit and overall gorgeous. Bud's did an excellent work processing my order and have it delivered three days after the order was placed. If you are in the market for a good 1911 do not hesitate to get the S&W1911E you will not be disappointed.

Let me start out by saying that I already have a Kimber stainless Raptor and it is a very good looking gun, now with this S&W 1911 E I feel that I have the two best looking 1911s made. The picture on the web site does not do the E series justice, it looks good on the web, but great looking in person. I have shoot around 100 round nose reloads thru it with no problems in feeding or ejection, it shoots at point of aim, just as my Raptor and the Para Elite I have. I truly love 1911 pistols and am glad to add this on to my collection. I had a Ruger sr 1911 that I sold in order to buy this Smith and I do not regret it. The Ruger is a good looking 1911, but for some reason I could not shoot it as accurately as the other 1911s I have. All and all I really like the new Smith and would recommend it to anyone.
