I picked up this S&W 1911 on a trade a few days ago. Not my first S&W 1911, I bought a 1911Sc when they first came out and still own it, and love it. I traded a bit high on this but I still think it was the right decision. Traded an old Citori Trap (I don't like trap, when I shoot clays I shoot skeet, had the gun for a long time and never shot it) and an M&P .45 (Also own an M&P 9 and just inherited an XDM 45, so I am set on plastic guns, and the M&P 45 just never saw any use). Called Smith to check on the manufacture date, it was early 2004. Hitting the range this coming weekend, range reports will follow.
