I consider my self a huge fan of Smith and Wesson I love there revolvers there some of the nicest out there. I started looking at there 1911's and noticed ever single one of the newer ones has "This Gun Can Be Fired With Out The Magazine Inserted" Stamped on the side of the slide. I like clean slides and since I am looking to get into a higher 1911 and I am trying to keep a open mind even thought so far Dan Wesson is beating ever one out. I was wondering is there any way to get a Smith and Wesson 1911 with out the big warning posted on it cause its a huge turn off. Also anyone own or shot a Smith and Wesson SW1911SC E-Series™ - Round Butt, with the Scandium Frame I am curious to how durable the frame would be. I am the kinda guy that wants to put 10k+ rounds thought his gun.
