I understand, but what good does it do to keep it in the safe for the rest of your life? Nobody else will enjoy it as much as you do. If it were mine, I would already have 500 rounds thru it and I would enjoy it because it is unique. Of course, on the other hand, maybe you could sell it to a S&W collector and buy 2 SC's....now, that appeals to me!tarateddy said:I won"t be able to shoot the 5" 1911SC because it is was prototype and the only one made. It got out of the factory, when it shouldn't have . It's in the safe. I saving to get a 1911PD 5" and I'll compare them when I get the new one.
Sweet, how much did that hard chroming run you, if you don't mind my asking.jockeys said:ok, here it is at the range, little bit dirty, but you get the idea. painted the sights myself, grip safety, thumb safety, slide stop and mag release were all hard chromed by Tripp Research. (they were rusting.) most of the internals have been tweaked/swapped as well, it's got a <4# trigger pull now, and most of the inner surfaces will show my face reflected in them.
Tac, what sights do you have on the Sc and did you have to mill the slide?Tac Four said:The family:
SW99 .45 ACP____________622 Target
SW99 Compact .40 S&W___SW1911SC

1911SC with mods (done for now):
Thanks for the reply and for mentioning the gap. Good info.Tac Four said:I put a set of 3rd generation night sights on it that I got from CDNN Investments. The only peculiar thing about them is that the front sight now has a slight gap at the front like the rear sight. That doesn't bother me. No milling required.
