I want one!

I love the fit and finish on their DA pistols.



I'd really like to see a longslide 6" SIG 1911.

I don't know but I've got the hots for it.

Damn, and I was saving up money for a new FAL too.

S&W making 1911s. Sig now making them. Kimber and Springfield selling them faster than they can make them. Yup, it sure is an obsolete pistol!

Who cares.

1911 of the month club.

Do we really need another 1911 maker?

( I love 1911's)
Link Posted: 11/9/2003 6:33:11 AM EDT
Yes. Yes we do.
My Springfield 1911 turned out to be a jam-o-matic, even after 1000rnds.

In my personal experience (SIG P226- 43,000+ rnds, SIG P229 - 5,000+ rnds), SIG makes some, if not THE, best weapons on the market. Besides, I really like the SIG-defined look on that slide.
Link Posted: 11/9/2003 6:33:37 AM EDT
So, who isn't making a 1911 these days? Is Marlin next?
Link Posted: 11/9/2003 6:41:40 AM EDT
I am sure the Sig 1911 will be of the highest quality, but I would rather have their P220 than any 1911, any day.
Link Posted: 11/9/2003 6:44:02 AM EDT
I like the P220, but the only reason I want (another) 1911-pattern pistol is for the trigger. Personally, the SIG lockup is preferable to the old linked design and is much more reliable. I wish they'd keep the SIG lockup on a single action 1911-pattern frame.

where's the 'more than I'd pay?' entry???

Seriously, it's not a 1911 (i.e. 100% parts interchangable with a WWII or Series 70 gun) - it's a 1911-style SiG...

Link Posted: 11/9/2003 6:52:26 AM EDT
While it will be more than my wife will want me to pay for it, I'm thinking one will have to follow me home from the gun store after they come out...
Link Posted: 11/9/2003 10:16:11 AM EDT
I don't understand how they can change the basic design of these things (like the external extractor) and still call them a 1911? They are more 1911 in name only. They look like a 1911, bit the design is different, therefore they are not.

Yeah, whatever...

But at least it will be a 1911A1-style pistol worth owning...for a change.
Link Posted: 11/9/2003 1:49:00 PM EDT
OHH YEAH!

I have finally found the perfect cross of my favorite pistol maker/pistol make!

THIS WILL BE MINE.

It probably is a great gun. And "1911A1-style" is exactly what it is.
Link Posted: 11/9/2003 11:09:01 PM EDT
How much? Who cares! It will be mine... oh, yes....
Link Posted: 11/10/2003 4:12:41 PM EDT
It's $750 in S.S. around my way.
Link Posted: 11/21/2003 5:41:17 PM EDT
The latest is $1,077.oo retail but a place called adco firearms on the web is supposedly already advertising them for around $850.00. Taking orders apparantly.

I heard that too but didn't seem them on his website.
Link Posted: 11/22/2003 2:29:21 AM EDT
I want one. I love Sig P245, P220, but they are outnumbered by Kimber 1911's.

I think it is a perfect marriage.
