QKShooter suggested that I write a review of my new 1911sc. Well I thought I would give a try. First of all my qualifications are simple, I'm a handgun addict and have been buying hanguns for over 35 years.
When I went to the gunshop last week I went to buy a Sigma9ve and walked out with the S&W SS 1911SC. So soon as I saw it I had to have it. I have two .45's already. But as we all know there's always room for another.
So I looked it over and lubed it and took it with a Sig Sauer P220 to the range. The reason I took the Sig was to give me some thing to compare it to.
I really liked the Wilson mags that came with the 1911, very easy to load. I used PMC .45acp 230 grain FMJ.. Now with both pistols loaded with the same loads I started shooting at 50ft.
First the Sig Sauer P220, this pistol is a year old and I have put about 1500 rounds down range with it. What can you say bad about a Sig. every round inside the black.
Now with the 1911sc I got the same results, great sights that are very easy to focus on. It had a little more muzzle flip than the Sig. which surprised me. I think it's going to take me a little time to get use to that. It was ejecting all the shells at a good angle. One thing that really impressed me was it has a real natural feel to it as it seems to want to point at the target by it self.
What I really don't like about the 1911 is cleaning it. Let's face it any pistol that comes with a wrench takes more time to clean.
Over all it's great pistol, very easy to grip and the sights are real fast to pick up. I thought the trigger was very good and seems to feel lighter than than it should be from the factory which is pleasant surprise. It is a very well made pistol with a good feel to it. For a pistol weighing 39 ounces with a 5 inch barrel it seems almost too easy to handle, it's a great buy at $695. Where else can you buy a good quality 1911 for that kind of money. It also has a life time warrenty
Funny thing about these two pistols I paid the exact same amount for the Sig Sauer P220. Oh yeah and I went and got the Sigma 9ve this morning that I forgot about last week.
