I purchased my S&W 1911 PD at a gun store back home in Knoxville and I fell in love with it once I held it in my hands. I took it home field stripped it, cleaned it, and made sure it functioned alright. Then my little brother and i took it out to the range and put around 700 rds. through it. The only thing that didn't feel right was the stock main spring housing stuck up about 1/4 of an inch and wore both our palm raw. A quick swap and a few minor adjustment to the trigger and grip safety and it was perfect. I carry it in a Milt Sparks and it is perfect for someone my size, fits well in my hand and its easy to control.
