    I have the PC version. Well made piece with a light, but very clean trigger. It has taken all ammo I've used with no issues at all. I think for the money it's an excellent value.

    Is that the one where the slide is ported? Very nice looking pistol.

    I have the full-size E-series tactical (rail, night sights, etc). An absolute pleasure to shoot. Superbly accurate. I bought it before I thought about CC'ing serioudly, and wanted a full-size 1911 as my first 1911. Now, I kinda want a smaller one. And one in 10mm. And one with a long slide. And another and so on.

    Seriously, though, when I first bought my E-series, the gun stores couldn't really give me any info on it because they all said that S&W was so new to the 1911 game, but "these Kimbers over here are really nice." I'm so glad I stuck to what I wanted. I probably shoot my E-series twice as much as my carry gun.

    John Browning started with an external extractor and abandoned it. It was not without conscious thought.

    I dont use an external extractor on my Bullseye pistols and haven't seen them used in full custom builds for Precison competiton. The reason is that you can't adjust tension as well on an external extractor, which reduces reliability. Is a factory external extractor superior to an improperly adjusted internal setup, absolutely, is it better than a property adjusted internal extractor, no.

    Factory labor just throws parts together and that works with MIM, but there a few bits that doesn't work and that's where the warts show.

    Tuning them is really quite simple too. Most people with complaints on the pistols however don't know how to diagnose or treat the reliability issues.

    Ditto bachman44. It's a very capable pistol that operates well.

    I don't own it anymore, but the guy who bought it still tells me how much he likes the gun.
