    SW1911TA E Production Date

    Can anyone tell me if a 1911TA "E" I am looking at has any known production issues based on it's Serial #. It is UCT0 _ _ _
    Only asking as I read some reviews stating that there may have been issues with early production models. This one is new in the box but I dont know how to date it's production. Any help and advice is welcome. Thanks in advance!!!

    Cool Welcome to S&W

    Hey JWSW,

    Welcome to

    Send it to me, promise not to put more than three or four......thousand rounds through it

    Have not heard of having many problems with the 1911.

    Have a couple of low recoiling "pet" loads for you. Affordable. 230LRN, 3.4 Clays. Will work a 20# recoil spring. 750fps. Something a bit lighter? 185LSWC, 3.8 gr Clays, 750fps. Need a 14# recoil spring with this. Very low recoil.

    Enjoy.

    Later, Mark

    I am taking a guess because the three letter prefixes are weird to me. I would say that gun was shipped in 1997.
