Then you're probably want to go with the Tac ops it's got everything you're looking for minus the manual safety.As for 20 round mags go with Mec-Gar.I found mine at GregCotellc.com he had great prices when I was looking but prices may have changed.He was great to deal with he called about a problem with my order and personally called me to straighten out the issue.I would have no problem in doing business with him again.

Greg Cote is out of 20 round Mec-Gars. I think your going to be SOL trying to find any right now.

A manual safety is completely useless on a DA/SA trigger like the Sig. The slide mounted lever on the S&W's and Beretta are NOT intended to be used as safeties, but rather as safe decocking mechanisms. The decocker on the Sig is perfectly safe. IMHO, if you want a manual safety, get a different gun

I tend to agree with the manual safety on the da /sa Sigs being useless but to each their own.

I believe the decoker is one of the safeties.

If that's what you like then good on ya. It's one if the nice things about companies that offer a lot if variety.

I like Glocks for carry and competition just for the reason that I only have to straighten my trigger finger to get the safeties to engage. They would probably win more customers though if they offered models with an external safety for folks who insist on having one though.
