Just bought a Sig. Knocked my socks off!

Having handled and shot Wilson, Ed Brown and Les Baer pistols, I can't say I would prefer one over this new Sig.... maybe if they would price match, but just maybe.

Welcome to the Best bag for buck 1911 on the market. I havnt found one that offers as much for the price. Plus they look great not like every other 1911 out there you can tell it's a Sig without reading any markings. Accuracy is spot for most and if not, its 99% of the time user error.

I have an American Standard 1911 that I have shot about 450 rounds through without any issues. I paid $475 for it. I am very pleased with the affordability and dependability of this weapon.

The Sig 1911 is fantastic in build quality. I bought a C3 with the compact alloy frame and the Officer's 4.25' barrel. It's rediculously accurate and the extra cost of the alloy frame is well worth it. My two tone C3 has a stainless top end and a nice black finish on the alloy frame. The magazines (2) are quality parts, the sights are first rate and use Novak dovetail cuts, so upgrades are easy. I already added tritium sights and slim grips. Oh, the Sig grips are a work of art. Sig logo and an asymetrical checkering pattern on nice wood (cocobollo?).

I paid $800 for what would have cost $1100 in an STI. Even with the couple of upgrades I've made, I'm still out less than the STI I was lining it up against.

I shot the Sig C3 yesterday. One of my friends owns a dozen or so 1911's, including the Sig and brought it to the range to play. Accurate, oh yeah, real easy to eliminate the 10 ring from the target. It was my first time shooting the C3.
Good trigger, great sights. No doubt a good carry piece with the alloy frame saving a few ounces. However, I still prefer an all steel frame, guess I'm just old school. I like the pistol to absorb as much of the recoil as possible. JMHO
One thing for sure, you get one 1911, it just opens the box and you want more!
My daily carry piece is a STI Spartan, all steel. Here's baby:

Ed Brown, Wilson Combat, Colt, Kimber and the very best to date would be a Nighthawk IMO but they are about the price of a nice used car.

The best is the one that performs when needed.
