We've got a lot of Springer fans around here. They might now agree with that.

Ok so I took everyone's opinion checked them both out thoroughly .I was allowed to handle and slip both into my favorite carry position.They are both sweet pistols and even though I gotta say I liked the looks of the Sig better I had to go with the most comfortable so today I put some money down on the pony.Thank you for all the advice.I will be getting her outta layaway in a few weeks.

You can make the case that any design change from the original M1911 configuration. This includes ambi safeties, beavertail safeties, FLGRs, picitinny rails, bobtail frames, etc, etc. You can't ignore other changes and only focus on the extractor as the one thing that disqualifies a gun as being a 1911. Mechanically and functionally, internal and external style make no change to the operation of the gun. Now the Series 80 safety does alter the mechanics of the gun. That's a much more significant change to the gun than an external extractor.
The external extractor is so European. (Read: Frog)

Subtle changes yes, but to scar the fine lines of the M1918/M1911A1 is blasphemous!

There's NO crying in baseball and there are NO external extractors on 1911's.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
