Back story... I haven't bought a gun for over a year due to job move and money was tight. I saved up to buy Dan Wesson VBob but spending $1500 to $1700 on a pistol was hard to do when we sometimes struggle. So I compromised with the wife and bought this, then gave the extra cash to the household.



It was everything that I wanted but a bit cheaper (I'll still keep the VBob on my wish list)

Nice looking pistol!

I have not bought a firearm for myself in over 20 years, but then I do not need to .... I guess.

Nice piece

The grip safety on those just strikes me as odd. Hope it treats you well.

My son has the same one we bought him for combo Christmas/birthday present when he was home on leave around Thanksgiving.

It's so awesome, we went back and i bought one for myself, an Ultra Nitron.

Very nice.


I'm saving for an STI, and have the same thoughts (we don't really struggle though).

This will be my most expensive firearm. Even my SBR isn't as expensive (if you ignore optics). I've considered buying an RIA Tactical instead and using the leftover $ for more optics or a Traegar smoker.

It's the shaping of it into a point like they did. I just prefer a S&A style safety.

Nice gun OP.

I like it, anodize the trigger red for that "black widow effect"

Nice! Big 1911 fan myself.

Guns are cool and all but not worth struggling for. Provided you already have a suitable CCW and HD gun. Take care of the necessities before toys.

I have found the GS on Sigs to be absolutely awesome. It's not only comfortable, but makes positive, 100% reliable disengagement a breeze. It looks much "worse" than it is in that photo, due to the angle.

She's a beauty!

Oh, I have no doubt that it'll function just fine; just the profile is odd to me. I'll have to go the the local GS and finger bang one to check the feel.

I do like the mix of finishes.

Nice piece man. I have been looking for another 1911 myself. What did it set you back if you don't mind me asking?

The "Beavertail" Grip Safety is quite common in the 1911 world.

No shit. He's talking about how it is relieved on the sides and shaped into a point.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 10:57:57 AM EST
Good for you. I like it.

Nice gun OP. The SIG 1911s are great, but some of the purists dislike the slide profile and external extractor.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 11:01:49 AM EST
Very nice 1911, love the color combo

I don't mind at all... Bought at Cabela's for $1160 OTD ($1099 +tax)

probably could have gotten a better deal somewhere else but I was there and didn't want to shop/drive around

Sig 1911s are very nice, my Son had one before he went back to the dark side and now
only carries 9mm Glocks.

To be honest I carry a G19 or a G34 myself.

But today I will clean my soul by shooting my 1911

No kidding? I've never seen one before. Is it like this?

Link Posted: 1/18/2015 12:00:01 PM EST
Nice.

I used to have a SIG 1911 that was nothing but reliable.

My only complaint - the thumb safety lever was a bit skimpy for my large hands, but that's minor.

You really thought a guy with "1911" in his user name, and a 1911 for an avatar, did not know that?

Any issues with yours, or has SIG worked out all the issues with their 1911s? I am really interested in picking up the SIG 1911 Extreme.
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 12:14:14 PM EST
BF, have you tried it in regular 1911 holsters? I know that some Sig's fit, and some don't, but can't recall which.

I really do need a buddy to buy a bobtail, so that I can try it out. It just feels odd to me, but I'm told that they fit and shoot in the hand nicely.

If it fits well in YOUR hand, that's all that counts.

But, personally, I'd rather not have it narrow down on the beaver tail, like that. The more surface area there, the better, imho.

Still, though. That looks like a nice pistol and Sig tends to make quality stuff. I'd like to try one out.

Congrats , I have a fastback carry that is basically the same gun , I am very happy with it

They are to me , but I dont have anything else in a semi auto to compare them to,I just own 1911s and revolvers !
Link Posted: 1/18/2015 1:51:04 PM EST
Great choice!
Was looking at that model and the RCS Sport. Ended up with the RCS Sport becasue it felt a little lighter. It's been my EDC. The only problem has been with the SIG mags with failure to eject and/or feed. With Wilson mags, no problem.
Enjoy

Hmm.. wrap around rubber grip and odd looking trigger with generous sprinkling of high contrast parts, rounded frame and weird looking beavertail..

glad you like it..

Since you apparently can't tell the difference between front strap checkering and a "wrap around rubber grip", does that mean you're new to 1911s?

It is so nice of you to bestow upon us your uninformed opinion.

Nice pistol, OP.
