I just dont want to get a lemon of a sig if I do it and feel bad for doing that trade. I paid 1k for my 1911 and I know the 229 is a little cheaper also. Any input appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Both guns are about the same price wise depending on age condition etc. SIG makes a world class pistol so it's not like you'll be trading down. There are a lot of excellent SD loads out there in .40 because everyone wants to get the LE contracts. I live ammo in the 155-165 HP range in the .40. Long answer to say, sure, I would do the trade if I wanted a SIG.

You may get disappointed. The SIG is just as accurate. It requires no skill to hit the bullseye. In fact it will even walk down the range and retrieve the target for you.

If you really like your 1911, I'd suggest keeping it. If you want a nice Sig but don't have a lot of cash I'd search for a Sig 2022 in 40 cal. Should only set you back about $450.

Ok. I think ive narrowed it down. Ive heard too much bad stuff about the newer sig series pistols. I think im going to try to find a 229 model E29-40-BSS-NR. I definetely dont like the looks of the longer ejectors in the newer models. But I do like a rail on them considering its going to be a 40cal. Can anyone help me out with choosing one. I dont want to have a lemon. I do also love the "legacy rail" look over the newer style.
