Have you guys heard that S&W is coming out with a new line of 1911's? They are calling them "Enhanced," and are to be revealed in the up coming SHOT Show. I saw them on the site of Bud's Gun Shop, but not on S&W's own site (?). So, today I called their customer service line (800-321-0852) and found out a few things about them, as to what is different, like: 1 - recessed and chamferred barrel 2 - oversized (performance center) extractor (still external, thankfully) 3 - precision fitted trigger (finally!) 4 - ambi-thumb safety 5 - checkered grip front strap and back of slide 6 - upgraded wood grips 7 - fish scale slide serrations 8 - night sights (some models) This line is not their PRO series, but an entirely new line, and if Bud's pricing is correct, is a good value. In speaking with Jeff in customer service, he says their PRINTED 2011 catalog has them in it with detailed info and can be ordered by mail, but their web site is taking a little longer to get current but is coming. A couple of them also feature a rounded butt with a scandium frame and two tone finish or all black, 4.25 bbl, at about 30ozs, still at 8 + 1 rnds. As someone who is and has always preferred the 5" government model, I think I will actually get one of these Commander styles; either the 2-tone or the all black version. I know, some of us are in love with Colts, or Springfields, or Kimbers, or etc, etc, etc. But isn't it great that more and more 1911's of quality are still coming! What do you guys think?
