    I have two Sig 1911s, one Target Stainless and one Ultra Compact Nitron. I sent the Target model to Sig for a trigger job, which came back absolutely perfect (it was good already, but a tad heavy at 5 lbs), but the Ultra Compact came out of the box working like a super-expensive custom gun. The Target model even has Trijicon tubes in the adjustable sights, which is a bonus. Try to find a Colt or a Kimber or a Springfield with a checkered front strap, night sights, and Sig reliability for under $1,000. Oh, and the recoil spring/guide rod/reverse plug system Sig uses on their Ultra Compact beats the heck out of the very non-user-friendly systems on the little Kimbers and Springfields. The Sig Ultra Compact takes down just like a Glock!

    perhaps its cause i've handled and had so many guns over the decades that i get something 'new' to me and i hope its going to work all proper but i don't get excited if there are glitches--
    i picked up on a used (perhaps 1 box through it) C3 built OCT 2010.
    no mag well or laser but 3 mags and 2 grips (hogues)

    1st shot gave me a clue why it sat in his draw unfired--the spent case bullseyed my forhead.
    my defender did that and 30 seconds with a file tweaked the ejector.
    also it uses my defender mags and holster (i soaked and stretched it a little)

    than there was the fact that it is ammo senestive.
    eats hot stuff in any form but has a tight chamber and some brands of ammo hang up giving
    the impression of unrealibility. not true.

    400 rounds of factory power which 3 of us had lots of fun playing with the paddle tree--its wicked accurate)
    and now it takes all assorted shapes and power levels.

    it just had to learn that it is a gun.

    Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
    to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them
