I had been looking at 1911's for some time and had been checking reviews on the internet as well. I was at a local Tacoma gun shop and had narrowed the choice down to the Smith & Wesson 1911SC and a Sig 220. Both guns felt good in my hand and were about the same price. I had read some reviews on the forums here that the beavertail on the SW was quite stiff and had to be gripped very hard to engage. I found this not to be the case. It seemed to work just fine with a regular grip. The trigger on the SW seemed "heavenly" to me the way it broke. It also was a very nice looking gun. I ended up buying the SW and took it to the pistol range immediately. I shot 50 rounds of PMC Bronze 230 grain FMJ cartidges that I had bought at the gun shop. I did experience a couple of feeding jambs with one of the clips. After I was done I talked with the range mgr about it and he mentioned that the gun was bone dry and I should put a little grease on the slide and allow a little more time for break in. I was very happy with the accuracy of the pistol. Hopefully the jambing issues will resolve on the next trip to the range.
