Yep, sorta, its the all Blue/black model. For some reason I want this for a carry piece. I like single action cocked/locked for carry better that any thing else. My carry has been non existent but things have changed. Thanks' Aholes of the world.

Excellent 1911. I put a CT grip on mine and it shoots lights out. I really like the all black one as well. We will be expecting a range report soon!

I have one and it is amongst my favorites. One hint for you; put lots of grease on the rails! I have seen a couple 1911sc's that where under lubed and the finish was worn off the rails after only a couple hundred rounds. I have 5K rounds through mine and nay any wear, but I use lots of white lithium grease on the rails.
Also, the plunger tube on mine snapped off after 800 rounds and I installed an after market heavy duty milled one. S&W uses a cheaper version from the factory.
All in all it's a fantastic carry weapon.

This happened to both of my pistols. S&W fixed them for free but they obviously use an inferior part or attachment of this critical part.

The only caveat I can give you is the plunger tubes on these have an inherent problem of coming unstaked.
Even though I bought mine 2nd hand/used S&W covered it under warranty 100%.

It's my favorite 1911 and it eats all types of ammo that I run through it!

Picked it up today. Very nice. I do have a question. It looked like rust around the hammer, the safety area and on some of the pins. It would wipe off and looked like brown rusty residue. Have any of you seen that on these or other Smiths?

I field stripped it, not the easiest 1911, pretty tight. Really dirty from the factory, will shoot tomorrow.

I hope it cleaned up well. I seem to remember one failure, maybe a fail to feed, in it's first mag or two but been 100% after a short break in. Never an issue since. I usually put a small amount of grease (Lubriplate) on the rails of most of my autos except whatever I am carrying or my house guns...just light oil on the duty stuff. I figure it can't hurt to save a bit of wear when at the range. But that's just me and others may disagree. Let us know how it shakes out.

I just ran a couple of mags of Rem subsonic HPs with CMC mags. Ran fine, only threw one round off target at 10 yards. I ordered some white grease for the rails, will shoot more then. Sights are a little small for me and pretty useless in the dark. The safety lever did scratch the frame but I have seen that in photos so that was to be expected. The bobbed tail is really comfortable. I handled my other 1911s and now that bottom edge bugs me. If I were to change anything, it would be the sights, the hollow plug for the recoil spring and maybe an extended slide release. I love the slide on this gun.
