I have that same 1911. It's a damn fine weapon. Bapple helped me pick it out.
And I can attest that she shoots just as good as she looks.
Buddy of mine has the one like this in the 2 tone. Really cool looking gun.
So does Carson. He posted a picture here a while back. I'm sure he can attest to how slick they are too.
I love the look of S&W 1911s. The serrations make it one of a kind and the external extractor does not bother me at all, as long as it works. And I have never had a single problem with mine and it will probably last longer than a standard 1911 extractor.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that S&W uses their proprietary scandium on a few of their different guns. The 38 special Airweight uses it as well. It's supposed to have more rigidity than aluminum but be just as lightweight.
The "SC" in the title means that it has a scandium frame. This is a very light 1911.
