Have had this 1911PD for about a year now. Several hundred rounds down range and so far nothing has fallen off. The 1911PD is a scandium framed pistol and is very light compared to an all steel frame...about 29oz versus 34-36oz. I have been very pleased with it so far, shoots true, no FTF or FTE to-date and looks perty in her Buckeye grips...
S&W does use external extractors on their 1911 and that's a turn-off to many purists but truth be told I haven't noticed a bit of difference and like I said, nothing has fallen off yet.
P.S. $760 is a hell of a deal for a new 1911PD.
"The whole of the Bill (of Rights) is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals.... It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington
