    Problem solved, you keep your faith with Sig, and still have a 1911...LIFE IS GOOD!
    LOL! I bought one of the early GSR's and wasn't impressed by it. Sold it a month later. I might buy a Revolution in the near future.

    sig doesnt make a 1911.


    i know they have something that they are calling a 1911, but when they changed the look specifically to make it "unmistakably sig" they blew it with the old school 1911 fanatics. to bad too, they could have built a fine 1911 to earn their place but instead they had to be vain about it which just goes to show that sig doesnt understand the 1911 or the 1911 owner to begin with.

    1911 since 1975 or so.
    Colonel Cooper, in his "Cooper on Handguns" influenced me at a young age, and his dissertation started me on the Democratic Laundromatic.
    Very glad for it.
    I intend to stick with it.
    Thank you, Colonel!

    Bud White and NaturalSelection together kinda nailed it. It was a combination of factors. The extractor broke twice. Both times replaced by SIG. The holster issue was not as big an issue, but it was hard finding one that fit correctly. It wasn't the frame that caused all the problems it was because the slide didn't have a standard 1911 profile. Speaking of the slide, the slide on my genuine WWII Colt was tighter. The hammer kept hitting the grip safety, and the bushing was extremely hard to rotate. After a while the slide wouldn't lock back after the last round. I sold it to a guy at a gunshow, but lost about $200 on it.

    I hear that the Revolutions have most of the bugs worked out.
