    QK,
    Thats a handsome weapon. I'm not familiar with a Sig Browning. Only Browning I've experienced was a HP. Can you fill me in on the details of the gun? Thanks.

    The SIG ~ Older Gunner

    The SIG Browning was designed by J M Browning. It was originally made for Browning by SIG & then imported into the States.
    It fits the "average" hand perfectly. The black plastic factory grips are ideal...I don't think ANY pistol feels BETTER in hand.
    The SIG is a Natural Pointer that shoots right where I look.
    It "Points" equally as well as the Colt 1911s.
    Since I am an instinctive defensive shooter that is what is most highly important to me.
    The West German SIG SAUER SYSTEM pistol is beautifully crafted & "fit" ~ It feeds ANY ammo/bullet configuration.
    The BUTT magazine release will initially drive some seasoned American shooters totally bonkers.
    If you are mentally conditioned to hitting that mag release button then it's a tough transition at first.
    The magazines are ULTRA high quality but, expensive. Magazine quality is very important to me also...as they are the weakest link in ANY semi~automatic pistol.
    Failure To Feed & Failure To Eject & Failure To Function (in general) are almost unheard of in the Euro SIGs ~ The slides are wonderfully machined & I have not had a FTF or any sort in either of my two SIG/Brownings. That STILL flabbergasts me to this day. I will probably get hit by an 18 wheeler truck the very same day my SIG jams.
    I only shoot factory ammo defensively but, shoot some pretty crappy reloads for practice. My other "beater" SIG has gone at least 15K with no FTF so far...this one has been the same...so far.

    One thing that I've never been able to figure out is WHY the factory recoil spring is 5 pounds lighter in the older SIG/Browning .45s than in the American SIG P220 .45 even though they are basically identical.
    I shoot mine with the lighter weight recoil spings even though it's been suggested to me that I switch to the heavier weight spring.
    I never listened to anybody anyway so I'm sticking with what always works for me.
    It's my life that I'm protecting. So far (also) I cannot see any evidence that using the lighter weight spring has (in any way) caused damage to either handgun. For self defense carry I carry SPEER Gold Dot JHP & it is great, accurate, reliable ammo & I cannot get it NOT to feed!
