S&W SW1911 E-Series 8+1 45ACP 5"
by David L Date Added: Tuesday 03 May, 2011
First time ordering from Bud's and had to wait on the credit card shutdown. Things were a bit bumpy but they did keep me informed via email and phone and no problems with any unauthorized charges. Will likely order again soon.

As for the S&W I put 125 rounds through it without any failures using both the included ACT mags and a single Wilson 47D loaner. Ejection pattern was a consistent 4 o'clock and 15' with very little marking of the brass. The finish, both external and internal was good, not excellent, the grip safety rubbed a tad bit (I smoothed it out), thumb safety and slide lock were leaving witness marks on the frame so they got a light stoning to the undersides to solve the issue. The new trigger solves most of the vertical travel issue and was well fit but there is still too much pretravel and creep. Rear sight worked loose after about 50 rounds, retightened without further issue. Sounds like a lot of nit picking but overall it's a well built, reliable (so far) 1911 that competes strongly with others in its price range.
