Known as one of the finest 1911 pistols ever produced, the Smith & Wesson SW1911 is reliable and accurate right out of the box. The Smith & Wesson 1911 has an external pinned extractor in place of the original internal design that prevents the feeding problems that can occur with many 1911s. The SW1911 is also unique due to its firing-pin blocking automatic safety that is linked to the grip safety, leaving the trigger pull unaffected. The trigger and hammer are skeletonized, while the high-ride beavertail grip safety is very comfortable to the web of the hand and prevents any chance of hammer-bite. This model features a glass bead finish with machine scroll engraving. Additional features include wooden laminate E-Series grip panels and white 3-dot sights. The pistol ships with an engraved, wooden presentation case.
