So I recently purchased a SW1911PD. I really like 1911s and would go as far as to say that it is my favorite model/make of gun. I currently own 3 now but intend to add more in the future. Anyways, I was talking to a guy shortly after I purchased the SW1911PD and he was going on and on about how S&W and Sig should not even be able to call their models 1911 pistols because they deviated from JM Browning's original design by making an external extractor.
Well I really didn't know what to say and for sure don't know that much about 1911 pistols to try to make an intelligent argument anyways. I was just curious if you other diehard 1911 guys felt the same way about S&W and Sig 1911s or if this guy was just one of a kind.
