The following is a press release from Smith & Wesson

Smith & Wesson has expanded the company’s line of machine-engraved firearms with the introduction of a new, custom designed, machine engraved SW1911 pistol. The new SW1911 features a scrollwork design created by Smith & Wesson’s Master Engraver and made possible through the use of a highly precise diamond-tipped tool. The engraving embellishes the all-steel canvas and elevates the venerable 1911 platform to a new level of sophistication and beauty.

Chambered in .45 ACP, the newly introduced SW1911 pistol showcases decorative machine engraving on the left and right side of the stainless steel slide and frame. This intricate line work extends across the pistol’s five-inch barrel and when combined with its glass bead finish and rosewood colored grips, transforms this modern day workhorse into a living piece of art.

The SW1911 fits naturally in the hand and is perfectly balanced with its unloaded weight of 39.8 ounces and overall length of 8.7 inches. The single-action only pistol is standard with 8+1 capacity along with a white dot front sight and a white two-dot rear sight. The customized package is shipped complete in an engraved, wooden presentation case along with the company’s lifetime warranty.
