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 an external pinned extractor in place of the original internal design prevents the feeding problems that can occur with many 1911's. 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 SW1911 has a lightweight skeletonized trigger and hammer, and a high-ride beavertail grip safety that is very comfortable to the web of the hand and prevents any chance of hammer-bite. The true Commander configured SW1911PD is made with an exceptionally strong scandium-alloy frame with the weight of aluminum. The low profile, non-reflective black melonite finish is excellent for concealed carry and the external extractor provides very high auto-loading reliability. This single-action pistol features 3-dot sights, checkered wooden grips, and an 8-round magazine and includes a factory carrying case. Its grips, its metal, and its bore are all in very good condition.
