Did a grip swap and put on a set of rubber finger grip Hogues. This is the first time that I don't know if I like the change from the wood factory grips on a 1911. I gotta say the S&W wood does look nice.
the E series is very nice,that is one nice pistol. i almost bought and probably will, and i don't care if their 1911's have external extractors. theirs work fine unlike other manufacturers that use or have used external extractors.
As a follow up...the wood S&W grips are back in the 1911 as of around 8pm last evening. The scales and design of the grips were such a great accent to the over all appearence that complimented each other. Yea, I know, pretty don't mean great function at the range. And It should dry out by tomorrow for a little trip to the ranch with some ammo to see if function can match that of Beauty.
