    Have heard very little negative grousing from anyone who's bought & shot any of the S&W 1911 line-up. I would personally like to Bobtail a S&W Scandium Commander & give it a full (Clark style) meltdown. But that's just me...

    As for the one featured above, the price & features look like a good value. If anything specific doesn't suit you, it'll still be a perfectly fine platform on which to add parts from Briley, Bar-sto, Wilson, etc. to make it PERFECTLY yours. Buy it!

    I now have two S&W 1911's and looking for a third. Smith has done real good this time. Mine are wonderful to carry and they shoot like they ought to.

    I personally have no use for the rail but if someone gave me that gun I'd keep it, carry it and shoot it!

    S&W? I guess I've never had one, nor wanted to for any reason. Maybe I'm old fashioned now? Anyone here remember the Clinton era, and where S&W sold out to be politically correct? Anyone remember the boycott of S&W? Maybe not. Too young? Not up-to-par with the issues back then? That's okay. There are some things we should never forget, and 9-11, and our troops are some of them.

    I guess I'll never go to LA or AR as it was once land of the French, nevermind that it was bought back and made American once again.

    nitroglock, I don't own one, but I love the feel of the SW 1911 Rail Series. If I were looking at buying a railed 1911, these would definitely be at or very near the top of the list.

    Ram Rod, I also boycotted S&W until they were bought back from the foreign owners by Bob Scott and a business partner like three years after the pact with the Clinton administration. I think he's done a heck of a job since then turning the company back around, especially with moves like the intro of the M&P series and the decision to make a S&W labeled 1911 and AR-15.

    Well I am going ahead and getting the non railed version, I have enough Glocks with rails, and to top it off still get the $100 rebate.

    Now just have to wait on my county to issue an amendment, and they take their sweet ole time

    I have that exact gun. It has been really great for me. I even bought it from Bud's. Two things to be aware of, mine came with beautiful wooden grips, not the black ones that are pictured now and were pictured when I bought it. Secondly, finding a holster can be a little difficult with the rail. I had a custom maker craft me one.
