I am working right now on stocking up on ammo for one day (that may or may not come) when a new gun/ammo band takes affect. At least I'll know that they can't stop me from having ammo if its already in the ol cabinet. Once all the B.S. settles back down with the anti-gun morons, I'll hopefully be well stocked and can focus on the 1911 again.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I'm fine with a cheaper version but I can't find any of the lesser valued brands out there in the same size with the round butt. Maybe I haven't looked in the right places. I had also thought of just replacing the main spring housing, but I'm not real edumakated when comes to 1911 customization. I don't know if it's just that easy or if there's more to it, nor how much it would cost me. I'm looking to take something home around $500. I know that I'm not going to by a Kimber or anything like that for the price range, but that's fine as long as it's functional and trustworthy. I don't mind Rock Island etc. Thanks for your help.
Sounds like you already made up your mind. S&W 1911SC E Series is very nice pistol. I say ...... GO FOR IT!!!
