Investment cast frames hold up just as well as forged provided that they have been properly heat treated. Also it is best if the slide and frame are 2 different stainless alloys. This prevents galling on a stainless gun, something the old AMT Harballer 1911s were known to do unless dripping wet with oil.

Personally I would take the S&W for the main fact it has the external extractor....other than that they are equally fine.

I love the 38 Super as well...its one of the next calibers I need to get along with a 10mm
