I've been thinking about picking up a stainless 226 for mostly IDPA. It's getting rather expensive to shoot my 1911s that much. I have an aversion to running Wolf in my 1911s for some reason. I meet a fella today with a 226 ST but the trade didn't work out.
I called around and found a used 226 Elite with the SRT trigger and night sights, which would be perfect for IDPA.
the only thing I'm willing to part with in the safe is a Desert Warrior. I've only got 7 1911s right now. I DW used to be the nightstand gun, but it was retired when the Nighthawk GRP came to live with me...so the DW basically is a safe queen right now. Seems like the used value on each gun is approx. the same.
I have a "normal" 226, but I like the added weight of the stainless for IDPA.
Decisions...decisions. I like Sigs, but I'm not up to speed on the "elites" Are there any downsides to them?
