Sig 1911s anyone?
 
i have been looking at 1911s for awhile now and i have been hoping to buy a nice medium priced stainless model. Does anyone know anything about sigs line good or bad? i was on the web site and the 1911 stainless looks very nice. any input?

Do not quote me on this but I don't beleive a Sig is a true 1911 clone. All parts are not inter-changeable if I remember correctly

Propex is correct. The sig line of 1911's are a great pistol, but they are slightly different than the standard, traditional 1911 family.

Sig is making a good quality, well built 1911 and they have entered it in the military pistol trials, so that alone says something.

I think, for the money, there are other pistols out there that are a better overall value ( Taurus PT1911 and Kimber Custom II ) but there is nothing wrong with the Sig line up.

For the money, and if you can find one, the Colt model O1980XSE is my favorite 5" Government.

The new model O1070RG named "Rail Gun" has been announced, but has yet hit the gun shops, looks like a winner with a MSR of $1055. It comes with a Smith and Alexander high-ride "true" beaver tail grip safety w/palm swell, Novak White Dot Carry sights and the tact-rail.

Looks like my XSE without the rail;

I fondled the Nitron, the Platnum Elite and the TTT prior to finding my Talon and although they were well made, they seemed somehow bulkier then other 1911's in the shop (not to mention they were were waaaaay overpriced). I actually liked the Taurus' better.

I was not aware that the Sigs were not true clones. That plus the price secures a big thumbs down from me.

If and when you get to shoot a SIG 1911 your "overpriced " comment will be replaced with a **** -eatin' ear to ear grin and you'll realize that they are actually a good value, and accurate as hell:D

I've fired Sigs that were priced close to double what my cheap little Kimber cost. They both did the same thing.

Go Kimber
 
Sig's products are generally overpriced and don't hold their value well... The main reason is b/c Sig will let almost anyone buy direct from them (5 pistol minimum purchase to become a Sig dealer). Kimber makes an amazing pistol and their quality is top notch.

I was curious as to what kind of Kimber you have and what you paid for it. I paid $900 with tax and have put 6,800 rounds through it and it's still as accurate as the day I bought it. So you have a Kimber that you paid $450 for?:confused: Sure they both did the same thing; they put holes in things, but how about accuracy and reliability?
Lonewolf, I'm not sure how you can say SIG 1911's are overpriced when most of their 1911's are at or under 1k, which is actually less than the average price of a Kimber. Anyone who thinks that SIG's 1911's are somehow inferior to other "mass produced, higher end" pistols has clearly not owned a SIG for any length of time. I urge anyone to give SIG a look, and I guarantee that the SIGs will run with any comparably priced gun.
I hope I didn't come off as cranky, but.... I am! Headed to the dentist and I'm not really in the mood for that!:mad: I always respect other people's opinions as I hope others would allow me the same consideration. Thanks.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!:D
