Hi SWF:

I'm new to the site and looking for information on a 2004 SW1911 PC full size 5" in black finish (melonite?), non-ported. It has adjustable Wilson Combat sights with dovetails, ambi safety and a modest magwell. Mags are 8 round. Looks to be all factory.

Any and all info of performance or known issues is appreciated.

Some initial questions that I have are:
  • the care and feeding of the black finish,
  • is it stainless or carbon steel underneath,
  • what type of small part components were used in 2004? (tool steel vs MIM?)
  • what accuracy should one expect?
  • current value of a pristine example?

Any links to historical material would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Hey B,

Welcome to S&W.

I would give an occasional wipe with an ATF soaked patch.

About 1-1/2" at 25yds.....

Shoot well & Often...

Later, Mark
