Found one of these finally and it’s headed my way. I’ve been wanting to try one of them there Army pistols.
Nice pick up! Lost out on a SS S&W 1911 "E" series back in 2013 that caught my eye at my LGS because of the fish-scale slide serrations. Wasn't sure about the external ejector but it was a beautiful handgun and regretted not buying it. These Performance Center models are even nicer! Congrats and looking forward to the AAR.

"Army pistol?" :unsure:

Nice one! Most hate the scales but as a M&P fan, I have always liked the look and feel. I bet that’s going to be a hell of a shooter.

I’m going to have a little blue LEDs inlaid into the slide cuts and a little speaker that says “ you have the right to become silent”

I’ve regretted not buying every 1911 I have ever looked at and not purchased, both of them.

Eleven years ago, I had an early S&W scandium framed Gunsite Model, serial number was 0087.
It was a good pistol, and I’d probably still have it if I hadn’t traded it off for my first Wilson Combat 1911.

Congrats on yours!

I bought the "E class" with the fish scales and Rosewoog grips. Shoot Strait had it for $1250 so I checked Buds and it was 729$ with no tax.

Nice! I love the grips, I just think they look cool. With the performance center model having the lightening cuts in the slide I would think if you ever had to shoot someone in self-defense, their last words might be “man, that was really a cool looking pistol”

The grips are not laminated solid one peice of rose wood. My problem will be if I shot someone with it I'd be crying why didn't I carry the glock today !

Then you would look appropriately remorseful that you had to shoot someone to defend your life.

Yes, they take your gun as evidence in any shooting, I lost my glock 27 for 3 months, but they did give it back.. (y)

The performance center pistol came in, I’ll post a few pictures in a moment from my phone. As pictures indicate it is a 2013 new old stock model. It was dry as a bone. It was so dry it was difficult to “snick” the thumb safety. The trigger pull was flawless and I will check in with my gauge later but my best guess is it is just a little less than 4 pounds with no creep or over travel.

For those not really into 1911’s, a couple of pictures show the bushing. It is a Briley spherical bushing which is a really tightly fitted bushing with a titanium nitride piece inside the bushing that has .001 clearance to the barrel. It provides great lubricity and a really tight fit for accuracy.

They need to have a little over travel for when they heat up and get dirty.
