Smith & Wesson, which began producing 1911 pistols in 2005, will introduce six 1911 E-Series pistols in the centennial of the birth of John Moses Browning's sidearm. The newly enhanced pistols that are machined to exacting tolerances and built with a variety of custom features, according to the company.

The 1911 E-Series pistols are designed with a new precision hand-fit trigger and are available in both traditional grips and round-butt models.

The E-Series features two new pistols with Smith & Wesson's patented scandium alloy frame. The SW1911Sc is available with either a black Melonite or two-tone finish with a round-butt frame and 4.25-inch barrel for convenient carrying.

Chambered in .45 ACP, the SW1911Sc shares other standard E-Series features such as a precision-fit trigger, oversize extractor and combat ejector port.

Additional standard features include a titanium firing pin, fish-scale grip points on the front and rear of the slide and a recessed muzzle crown. With its stainless steel slide and scandium alloy frame, the SW1911Sc measures 7.9 inches in overall length and has an unloaded weight of 29.9 ounces.

Other distinct features on the SW1911Sc include a detailed slide rib designed to reduce glare along with serrations down the back of the slide and around the grip for improved handling. On the top of the slide, the SW1911Sc sports a front and rear tritium night sight for low-light applications.

The E-Series pistols also arrive with an ambidextrous safety and wooden laminate grips. The pistols will be shipped with a flat butt plate, seven-round magazine, standard butt plate, and eight-round magazine.

i own one of these pistols and an original s&w sc blue in color. this new gun is much tighter and the trigger is great. i sent the first one
back to have a new trigger put on it. this article describes the pistol very well. BUT it doesnt tell u how it shoots. i have 9 kimbers, a colt light weight commander and a les baer stinger. THIS S&W shoots as good as any of them. THE best shooter was the les baer. not any more. the S&W will shoot right with it any day. it is a beautyfull boat
tail stainless s&w and i really like the scandium metal what ever that is. S&W has one of the best on the market 45 available. OH i also bought the 3in black s&w scandium. great shooter carry it all the time.

Bought a 1911 p d today. Cant wait to take it to the range. I have used S&W in my L.E. career for many years and they are great pistols. The 4506-1 I carried on duty will feed a empty case. Cant wait to try the 1911. I'm expecting great things.
