Default Next Sig 1911

I didn't expect to have the Glock for long and I was correct. TBH, I picked it up as it was cheap and they are great trading material. A fella I trade with regularly had picked up a LNIB Sig Tac Ops 1911 and I've been trying for a couple of weeks to wrest it from his greedy clutches. This afternoon I'm trading the G26 and my beater Taurus 1911 for the Sig. As I got both guns for good prices, I'll end up with about $800 in the Tac Ops which makes me pretty happy. My buddy will also do well on this swap as both guns I'm trading are worth more on the market than I have in them.

I'm very impressed by the Sig Carry I picked up a while back as it's a really good shooter and digests every JHP I've tried. I expect the new one to be the same and from the research I've done it will eat any ammo. Never had a railed 1911 before and while I don't use the rail much - I don't mind having one 1911 so equipped. Here's a stock picture...

Glad to see you lose the Glock, now I can speak to you again.

With the rail on your new 1911 I guess the only question is does Santa get you a laser or a bayonet.

Great trade. I did something similar when I traded a Taurus Tracker and a Kel-tec pf9 for my Colt Defender.

Let us know how it shoots.

How's the slide to frame fit Dave? Any side to side play? Looks like a quality piece and I know that Sig does a good job with their weapons before they leave the assembly plant.

Got home from the swap and broke it down to check everything out. This is one very smooth pistol and the fit & finish is every bit as good as the Dan Wesson I had. The slide operates like it's on roller bearings and the trigger is exceptionally good and set around 4-5 lbs I'd guess. If this one shoots anywhere near as well as the Nitron Carry I got a while back - I will be very happy...

Looks very nice.

I'm kinda interested in one of the new SW 1911 E series

Good to know that Sig is still producing quality pieces. Looks like you got yourself a good trade there NGIB. Congrats on the newest addition.

What's the over under and how long he will keep this one guys??
