    My dealer advised me that he has two of the (baby Sigs) on order. One in the Nitron (black) finish, and the other in the reverse two-tone, with stainless slide. These pistols are about the same size as the Kimber Ultras. The Sigs have a 3.3 inch barrel.
    I almost put some money down, but he has no idea when they will arrive, and somehow he always talks me out of a 3 inch 1911 (function -reliability).... so I bought an HK 45C ....

    Might think about waiting a bit, 3 years ago I think, I bought one of the first Sig C3's, Officer's grip frame & commander barrel aluminum frame Sooooo sweet to carry.........BUT constant ftf stovepipes double feeds. Sent it back twice. Sig was great about it picked up the shiping both returns in under a week ( put over 900 rounds of factory hardball with 6 different magazines before I sent it back).

    The darnend thing kept jamming & cracked 3 different barrel bushings, yeah all sig all mim. Seemed to me the geometry between the frame & the slide was somehow off. Whatever the case I got rid of the problem child & to bad too what a great carry piece it could have been.

    Not trashing SIG , people say the bugs are worked out now. But sometimes new model guns motorcycles,cars toasters,or whatever that comes of an assy. line can develop problems once full production begins. I have a 36 year background in aero space & have seen this happen more than what It should.

    Now when I see a new model whatever I try to wait a couple of years before rushing out & buying one.


    Well I "kind of try".

    JD it was smaller let me see if i can find a picture of one. But I doubt I'll know how to post it on here

    Edit: I just called my LGS and he said it was a 238 the picture that you have looks bigger but I guess they are the same. I really like that gun wish I had the funds to afford it.

    Unhappy Ultra Compact 1911's

    I've had the Commander (4 inch) 1911's numerous times, and had no function or reliabilty issues, but I have always been curious how a 3 inch 1911 would perform. I know they would be great to carry, but if function issues arise, what good is a .45 that won't fire......
    Some Kimber owners love them ... but I guess I'll wait (again). You know how it is .... like a ich you can't scratch. Must be gun thing ....

    I used to have a Kimber CDP Ultra II, it worked great with Wilson mags. I liked it a lot. That said, I eventually traded it on a old Kimber Elite Carry (4'' compact, basically a CDP series before they had CDP). That was mostly because I wanted a "Series I" Kimber and I like the extra length in the slide with the Officer's grip. That thing shoots like a dream but the night sights are long burned out. I would be interested to learn how the short Sig 1911's do.

    Stop!
    Go the the Sigarms web site and select pistols then 1911.
    Yes, they have a new model called the 1911 ultra.
    Looks a lot like my Springfield Micro Compact.
    $1100 MSRP........none on gunbroker yet.
    3.3" barrel, two tone, rosewood grips.

    Probably not one in my future since my S/A fills that niche' pretty well.

    The barrel on the new SIG is 3.3 inches , that and the External Extractor might just make it reliable.

    The thing I see with Sigs is that the MSRP versus the mom & pop gun shop prices have definite disparity. Cool looking weapon & I really like Sigs but if I ever get another 1911 aside from my Colt Commander it will likely be a Kimber or S&W 3".

    Here's the Link: 1911 Ultra Two-Tone

    I agree that the most of the P series are great guns - although I am not a fan of the p290.
    The little p238 is a GREAT little pocket pistol -

    I've been looking for a 1911 for a while - although a discreet carry 1911 in a 9MM would be really nice.

    They're the same, it's just the absence of scale.

    The 238 is the same size as the Mustang pictured here:
