I never thought I’d want a S&W pistol but…

I’m seriously drooling over this new E series 1911.

    But isn’t it full of MIM parts that break after 2 bullets are fired? 😉

    They are pretty. I noticed them a couple days ago when I was browsing the S&W site. Price isn’t too bad either.

  3. Pretty grips! And that’s about all I’m qualified to comment on. 😉

    VERY nice. About the same as my carry gun, except for the Bobtail. Since I shoulder carry the bob isn’t much use to me.

    FYI Les, I know you’re kidding, but I must say I’ve got over 15,000 rounds through my 5″ Stainless S&W, and I’m sure I’m north of 2,000 with the Scandium one. I get the reason for not liking MIM…but frankly I don’t see it to be an issue.

    Aesthetically I don’t care for the bobtail, but overall that is still a nice looking 1911.

    As for the MIM stuff: I have 15000 some rounds through a gun with MIM parts, and have had a total of ONE parts breakage in it. That is pretty good if you ask me.

    Tell me…what use is the bobtail if it has a foot-and-a-half of beavertail?….

    The bobtail keeps the butt of the pistol from printing against your shirt as badly as a standard 1911. The beavertail isn’t in the same location, it’s tucked down close to the holster.
