    Having multiple 1911's, I have found that the S&W's are the one's that perform disproportionally well for what you pay for them (i.e. my S&W 1911DK and the 1911PD have performed as well or better than other 1911's that I have that cost several hundred dollars more). The PD does ship with only a right sided thumb safety, but I switched it out to a Wilson Combat ambi safety without any problem. The only other thing I'll mention is that some of the earlier runs of the S&W's 1911's received criticism for a "sloppy" trigger...which is very relative; if you are comparing with other 1911's, there is a small creep in the stock S&W trigger, but has a good, crisp break. If your dealer has several in stock, ask to see them all and dry fire with a snap cap to find the trigger pull that you like. For the money spent, one of the best values in 1911's in my 2-cents.
