    Sig Sauer 1911s

    http://www.sigsauer.com/Products/ShowCatalogProductDetails.aspx?categoryid=25&produ ctid=135

    I never even realized that Sig made 1911s. I don't know if that is good or bad. I saw one in the store this past week. Given the reliability and accuracy of the Sig P200 series, I figure it would translate to their 1911s. Anyone have experience with the 1911 Sigs? Reliability? Accuracy?

    I am seriously considering getting rid of my Para Ordnance P14 45 (Canadian made) to be replaced with a Sig Sauer.

    I have a buddy who has one as his duty gun. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but he absolutely loves it. He says he's most accurate with that gun, and prefers it to any other.

    Sig Sauer 1911s

    I had a P220 (kicking myself for getting rid of it) and it fired anything I fed it. I recall my test shots that came with it were within 1.5 inches.

    I am guessing that the 1911 should be as good or better than the other 1911s.

    I've heard that the SIG 1911s are built to tight tolerances...and with some small parts and the 1911 design, doesn't necessarily translate to zero defects...

    I've heard 50/50 on SIG 1911s.....I wouldn't mind having one, but I might go for a Springfield first...

    A 1911 is different in it's design than a Sig P226/229/220, Glock and any other handgun of a more modern design. From what I understand, Sig makes a pretty good 1911 but I don't know that I'd hold it up to the same quality as some of the other manufacturers. There's a lot of factors that determine a good 1911 and many of them are very personal things. Most amounting to aesthetics. Any 1911 can be made functionally sound, but people tend to like to pretty them up. While I don't find myself attracted to a Sig 1911 because of how it looks and maybe some of the parts used, people use them with great success. It's a bit like a car in many ways, a 1911 is. There's luxury models that many would say do nothing special, and there's economy models that many will argue don't do enough.

    Initially they had some function related problems but, I believe that any such problems have since been rectified now that SIG is producing everything for their 1911s in house.

    Seems I recall some problems with the early run 1911s. I'd suggest taking t trip over to SIGForum and doing a search.

    I had a Sig 1911 RCS and loved it, easy to conceal, accurate and ate anything I threw at it. Unfortunately I was forced to sale it. If I'm not mistaken Janq carries a Sig 1911.

    The early run models had a recall in reference to the extractor. It thought mine had the same issue, but new mags cleared up all of the feeding problems.

    It's a beautiful gun, very reliable, and true to the 1911. Mine is stainless, black grips, Novak sights.

    It's on the heavy side, and I wouldn't use it as a CC. If you find one at a good price, it's a great 1911, and a great gun overall.

    Most commander or larger 1911s are much heavier than other options. That's not why they're carried by those who use them daily though

    I have a Sig C3 in 1911. it is one of the best .45 out of the box I have owned.

    It has a compact lower on a commander slide. I like it and they are hard to find.

    Lots of good information on 1911s, of all brands on the 1911 forum at:
    1911Forum - Powered by vBulletin

    I looked at and researched several 1911s about a year ago and chose the Dan Wesson CBOB. Love it!!


    Good Luck it finding the 1911 for you.

    The C3 is similar to a CCO from other manufacturers.

    Take a stroll over to the Sigforum, and you'll find that those who should be big fans of Sig... simply aren't.

    Sig 1911's just don't have as nice a fit and trigger as many 1911s in the same price range.
