Default New Toy S&W 1911SC

Yes, another gun thread. As I posted in another thread I gave my daughter one of my 1911's for getting her CHP. I had been looking for one to replace it and ordered this baby about a week ago. It got really good reviews from several different sources. Just picked it up and I have to say I am really impressed. Will give a range report when I get a chance to shoot it.

That's a good looking gun. I'm in the market for a 1911 style myself, so I'll be waiting for the range report.

Google Kimber Super Carry Pro & Dan Wesson CBOB & Smith E Series 1911SC. The Smith gets some really good reviews.

I played with a Kimber Super Carry Ultra+ at a recent gun show and it is now on my "must have" list . . .

I purchased a S&W 1911 in 2006. It's still my favorite to shoot. I hope they are still coming with the Wilson combat mags. It is balanced so well it just seems to drop back into place perfectly after every round.

Shag,
Have you tried any of the Springfield 1911s?

Yep, have 3 of them. A GI Micro 3", the full sized Mil-Spec parkerized, and the full sized stainless "loaded". All are fantastic guns. The Mil-Spec is usually the one I carry on the boat and in the motorsickle saddle bag. I bought it 10+ years ago, slapped a set of Pachmyers on it and have totally beat the hell out of it. No misfires, FTE's, or FTF's no matter what I feed it. I would highly reommend a SA 1911 to anybody.

Nice. I miss my 1911. I'll be picking one up in the next few months and I will go to Kase for a full internal job and some custom engraving.

Shag,
I love the look of that Micro compact. That's one of the finest looking guns ever IMO. I have the XD and love it.

Damn you guys go nuts for a .45. Hell I had a Remington Rand 1911 WWII model issued it was a sloppy POS designed to knock the other guy on his ass. The only people I knew that could hit anything was the US Army pistol team and they had custom built ones.

One is a 1911 and the other is an XD both where engraved at the springfield custom shop. The 1911 has alot of engraveing on it but it is light and hard to get the pictures to show it right and alot of it is also some stuff that I wouldn't want on the internet.

Very very cool! How do you like the XD? I never thought I would like a "plastic gun" but got a .45 XD compact last year and I got over that notion real quick.

I have two XD's the compact and tactical. Both will shoot what ever the 1911 doesnt like. I can put anything thru them and they shoot great. The 1911 on the other had is picky it will shoot everything but well get stopages and will notshoot as straight as the XDs will shoot the same stuff. The 1911 with the right amunition on the other hand will run circles around the XDs in accuracy but the XDs are consistent with what ever i put thru them. I never really had anything against the "plastic" stuff. But they are where it is at now days and I can see why.
