I picked up a new to me S&W 1911 Sc a bit ago...just to good a deal to pass up.
Came with Trijicons, 2 holsters (Galco paddle with snap and custom OWB), along with factory case, paperwork and mags...all for the low, low price of...who cares, it was MY deal
Got to the range and threw a few hundred rounds through, then a few hundred more the next day (both target and carry ammo). Never skipped a beat, even with limp wristing, upside down and everything in between!
For those unfamiliar with the little Smith 1911, it is a 4.25" Commander sized model with scandium alloy frame and 2 eight shot Novak mags.
My impressions are-
Heavy trigger but it is typical 1911 awesome, with no creep and...you know the drill.
More accurate than I am or most likely will ever be.
Carries like you would expect an alloy framed Commander should...SWEET!
I love the fact it runs a bushing up front and stripping is straight forward for a 1911.
I wish Smith had sent it with a short guide rod from the factory, but I am fixing that...to save a bit of weight.
Thought I would add a few pictures...nothing pretty and a few got away from me on paper...but I am really happy with it!
Pray for our nations leaders!
Looks good. Thanks for sharing.

Wow. That's exactly the gun i've been shopping for. Not to be nosy but what did you have to pay?

Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
Congratulations on your S &W Sc. This is a pic of mine which I bought when they first came out several years ago. They all had the "billboard" on the side which was the subject of much griping and complaining so S & W eventually changed it and now the pistol is called the "PD".
I have several K through my Sc and it has never, ever had a problem. It is everything the OP says and a lot more too.
