Smith & Wesson arms SWAT team.
"We considered a variety of manufacturers in our selection process and I am pleased with our decision to purchase the new Smith & Wesson 1911 Tactical Rail Series," said Captain Bill Walsh, commander of the Riverside Special Enforcement Bureau. "The combination of superior accuracy, along with the high reliability of the external extractor, made the SW1911 a perfect choice for our SWAT team and tactical forces."
"After in-depth discussions with various police departments, SWAT teams and other tactical divisions, we made the decision to enhance the historic and highly accurate Model 1911 with the addition of a Picatinny rail, allowing the addition of tactical accessories such as flashlights and laser aiming devices," said Leland Nichols, Smith & Wesson's vice president of sales.
Smith & Wesson also announced it has entered into an agreement with Joe Blow Tees Inc., a manufacturer and marketer of apparel, to license the use of the Smith & Wesson brand and logo on a newly created line of T-shirts, sweatshirts and caps. The first designs in the series were unveiled at SHOT Show 2006 in Las Vegas.
