I purchased this pistol as a mate to my Springfield made 1911 45 acp that I use in NRA Bullseye competition. The idea is to use this in the centerfire portion of an NRA match instead of the .45.
This pistol is made in Smith and Wesson's new "metal gun" and Model 41 factory in Houlton, Maine. It is a hide away town off of US 95 right near the Canadian border.
This pistol is a Pro Series, meaning it went to the pro shop for a tune-up.
I can't believe that this pistol went through the shop.
Because the hammer drops fully down without going into a half-cock mode when releasing the hammer. An when cocking the pistol, I did not hear a mid point click before full cock mode. That is dangerous as far as I am concerned.
Another problem occurred when I tried to remove the wood stocks and install my favorite Pachmayer's. The entire bushing came out of the frame when removing the left stock screws. And the screw was still in the bushing and impossible to get out due to excessive Locktite.
More problems with the slide. Under the slide, near the port and between the breech and locking lug cuts, there are machine tool marks. It looks like the cutting bit was worn when forming the slide.
My wife's Kimber Gold Match in 9mm is perfectly finished without these problems.
You know, the kicker is that Smith and Wesson used to make slides and parts for Kimber. I do not know if the still do.
The newly purchased Smith 1911 9mm is now back a Springfield, Massachusetts for warranty work.
Not good for a Pro Series. Where is the quality control at Smith?
I hope it comes back as a true Pro Series.
