Wow, S&W has a bobtail now!

70 series with a titanium firing pin also! Those FCS aren't really my style, but I like it otherwise. Good job S&W. I'm guessing street price will be right around $1000-1100.

Looks like a kimber bump.

Nice. The cocking serrations don't do it for me either. I like a full bobtail, not the semi-round butt thing that them and Kimber are doing. But, it's better than nothing.

Only thing that bugs me about the S&W 1911s is that darn external extractor... why'd they go and do that?

I found their 2011 catalog. The "E" series also comes with a chamfered and recessed barrel, rear slide serrations and an enhanced trigger (hopefully no more wobble). Sounds good to me and better than their previous offerings.

From all accounts, it works very well. Unlike Kimbers old version.

I'm just wondering if the guy from Kimber that went to Sig is now at S&W?

I like it. The serrations aren't too bad. I could get used to them.

it kind of reminds me of this.

Yeah that's what men do. They customize things instead of putting their wieners on other mens face while looking at pictures of dark cavernous waste lands.

Not bad. Would be better w/o FCS and a true bobtail instead of the rounded butt. I guess the designers at S&W read gun magazines in the bathroom and have seen the Kimber ads on the back covers so much, that the idea seeped into their heads.
