The S&W is a reliable gun out of the box so there's no need to throw "stuff" in it unless you are having problems. I've owned 2 of the same model you have and I never changed out anything. Invest in good magazines and shoot it...

I think you handled this baptism-of-fire rather well.

My response was assuming your parts search was for items other than the specific firing pin block items.

I agree with the members that before you push the purchase button on any item for your gun that you ask if it's intended and will fit your Smith & Wesson stainless 1911, model #108282.

That, or trade it in for a real* 1911 and get a Colt.

* Real 1911's don't have an external extractor.

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!

But they did in 1905.

Anyway, when there is a problem, then you can worry about the gunparts. Until then I am reasonably sure your S&W is as reliable as you could want.

Why did lord browning even design the bhp with an accursed external extractor? Had he gone mad?

Are you trying to tell me your thunderbird is better than my md 20/20?

As i am only 58, and i realize you are much, much older than i, i need your valuable input in a detailed, intelligent essay. Many will be waiting with baited breath (out of mouth wash), as i may also (if it doesn't interfer with my captain kangaroo reruns). You have my word, sir cane, that i will give you the same reverence i give to my hustler magazines in my bathroom.

so, sir cane, come forth, and speak!

wtf??.........

Many of us have a great sense of humor and we joke around a lot. This being said, it might be better to establish yourself a bit and develop some credibility (this thread hasn't helped you any) before you go poking at an esteemed member, moderator, and fountain of knowledge. YMMV...
