Our Assessment: This is a Commander-style pistol, based on the 1911 design, produced by Smith & Wesson. Similar to the Commander, this pistol has a 4 1/4″ barrel and an alloy frame, but it also has a number of upgrades over a basic Commander which are popular for these style pistols. The slide has front and rear slide serrations, the grip safety is an extended beavertail style allowing for a higher grip without slide-bite and positive engagement when gripped, the thumb safety is extended, and the pistol has a full-length guide rod and skeletonized hammer and trigger. The gun is in Fine condition, showing signs of handling and light use, and comes with a single magazine. This will make for a fine carry or home defense handgun, would be a great pistol for IDPA matches, and in its high condition may interest the S&W collectors. Please see our photos and good luck!
