    Sig GSR 1911s

    How are the newer Sig GSR 1911s these days. I know there were a few issues with some of the earlier ones. I only own one 1911 style pistol (a CZ DW CBOB .45 (all stainless commander size)) and now I'm thinking of getting a full size all black or black/stainless two-tone 5" model sometime this year. I have looking at black and two-tone Kimbers and Springfields, also the CZ DW Valor on the web, but lately I started looking at Sig's website and looking at their 1911s. The one Sig 1911 that really caught my attension is their TTT model:

    http://www.sigsauer.com/Products/Sho...&productid=129

    I really dig the two-tone look on that pistol and also the Sig like lines (kinda like a cross between a Sig P220 and a regular 1911) on it. Is it true that the Sig GSR 1911s don't fit regular 1911 holsters. Anyone have the TTT model, or any other Sig 1911 model for that matter? If so, how do you like it. Are they worth it? Thanks.

    I'd still pass on one. For the money involved, you can get a much better 1911 that can use regular 1911 stuff.

    A customer recently brought it to my attention that the Sig 1911s are dimensional different from the Colt standard. IE a Sig 1911 will not fit a custom Kydex 1911 holster. This may not be true for leather.

    SIXTO,
    Is this what you are talking about? Or are there more important differences, as with the Llamas?

    I had continuous ongoing problems with mine. Sold it and bought a DW Valor.

    I am very happy now.

    That's all I can say about that.

    Yes it is dimensionally different, specifically the profile of the slide being more squared and is not rounded.
    It will _NOT_ fit standard profile 1911 holsters in kydex nor plastic with notable exception of the 'Mr. Softy' by High Noon Holsters which I personally love and use IWB toward both my GSR and a conventional profile SA 1911.

    Thanks for all the info everyone. Yep, I'm still kinda torn between the Sig 1911 TTT and the CZ DW Valor right now (learning towards the Valor). The Valor is really nice, but close to another $200-$250 for it over the Sig. Getting both is not an option right now, well maybe getting one this year and the other next year.

    The GSR is a very nice shooting gun. The holster thing might be a hangup, but a wide variety of sights are made for the GSR, and it takes standard 1911 grips. And that extra $250 will still by a decent amount of practice ammo.

    I fired one of the new production last month. It ran flawlessly during a steel challenge match.
