Smith & Wesson gave us a look at its brand new Smith & Wesson Performance Center SW1911s at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. These pistols feature ambidextrous safeties, adjustable sights, a precision crowned muzzle and Briley barrel bushing. The Peformance Center Custom SW1911 is hand-lapped and sports 30 lines per inch checkering on the grips. Another model in the series, the Round Butt SW1911, includes a bobtail-frame and all the same features as the Custom SW1911. Both models feature an 8+1-round capacity and retail for $1,539. Check out the video from SHOT Show.
