If you're from California, you may have a very hard time getting hold of one legally as they're not (yet, at least) on the California certified list. That means no California FFL will carry it or import it into the state, and no outside FFL will ship it to California. I've got my eye on one as well, but it might be a long wait.
how about the P938 but its a 9mm
My dad owns a Sig Ultra 1911. I've shot it a bit. Feels good in the hand. Fit and finish are nice, it's a beautiful gun. The checkering is aggressive and really locks to your hand when shooting. The trigger is okay, not great. To me, it has a tiny bit of gritty creep/take up and then pow. I'm used to the long, smooth pull of the HK LEM trigger though, so YMMV. It shoots very accurately and so far (under 1000 rounds) has not had any issues feeding, firing, or ejecting (though the ejection pattern seems inconsistent, changing from throwing casings at 2-3 o'clock and 5-6 o'clock).
However, it does have an issue with the slide not locking back and magazines not ejecting properly because the mag follower gets caught by the slide stop lever. Tried multiple new mags and some other "fixes" but couldn't rectify the behavior. It's going back to SIG for some work.
Hey Guys.I just wanted to say that I picked up a Sig Ultra .45 Two Tone yesterday but haven't had a chance to try it out yet.So far it "feels" good.I hope that mine performs as well as you say yours do.
I have had my Ultra for about a year. I chose the Nitron. It has been reliable and accurate for about 750 rds already. Not one gliche or hangup. I have owned several three inch 45s and this gun is absolutely the best you can get for the money, given all the goodies that are included in the price. Checkering, night sights, etc, This is a good value, other manufacturers charge 300 more for the same "standard" equipment!
I, also, recently got the Sig Ultra Nitron.
Website MSRP showed it for $1449 and I was able to get it for considerably less.
Feels good in the hand, operates flawlessly, shoots like a dream and I like it.
I've found that it takes any of the compact seven-round magazines available from Kimber, Chip McCormick, etc.
Am thinking of getting some short bushings and slim grips to make it just a little narrower.
Another concealment modification could possibly be to "bob" the back corner of the grip just a little.
Overall - nice gun with lots of possibilities. Mine is a keeper.
I checked out the 239. More like the 238 than a 1911.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato
