My father's looking at diving into 1911s. I told him about the classics: Colt, Springfield Armory, etc. but apparently the gun shop near him is having a pretty good sale on the Sig 1911s. They're selling the TacOps model for a little under $800.

What do you guys think of them? Reliable? He wants it to be a carry piece. I have reminded him, of course, of shooting at least 500 rounds through it before using it as a carry gun and to also test his carry ammo.

I have a SIG 1911 and love it. Once I got past the "ugly" it really grew on me.

Mine has been very reliable and is very accurate too. Less than $800 sounds like a fantastic deal for a TacOps.

I had one recently pass thru my hands, not sure which model..

I Liked the feel, weight, craftsmanship but..

it was too "european" looking for my taste it that makes sense

beyond the early "GSR" I think was the model that had some issues feedback I hear is good.

I am the only guy in my club who does not own one and I am truly sorry that I do not.

$800 for a new TacOps is under dealer price unless they changed it...WOW!...after he gets his, please share with us where any more are.

^ There's the deal. It seems like a damn good price. Only problem is, for you non-CT guys, it's only in store!

Comes with 4 magazines too. If I had cash I'd have him buy me one and have it shipped to an FFL out here.

You should do a search here before you tell your father to pick one up. They "can" be hit or miss. Good advice on 500 flawless rounds before sticking it in a holster too.
