I'm showing my age. The only experience was with a friend who owned a first Gen GSR that was a bag full of problems. His LGS kept telling him he had to ship the gun back to Sig because none of the parts they had would work in his GSR.
He got tired of Sig having his gun more than him and traded it in for a Colt 1911. This second hand experience clouded my opinion of the mark and I never followed through with the real answer.
Sorry guys, I spoke with authority on a subject I had no hard facts. I have since found out that with the exception of the external extractor, the Sig uses the same parts as many other 1911s.
Thank you Olympus for pointing out this mistake. I will do research on any future statements I make when I don't have the hard facts to back the statement!
