I have also had trouble finding a holster that fits it correctly, I'm sure the kydex rigs that Sigarms sells from it's website will fit it but I really don't care for them, I'm just old school I guess, I like leather. I got a Tagua for it but it really doesn't fit it well. I have a nice rig for my Kimber Ultra, that I got from Ryan Grizzle, and it is perfect for the weapon and for me. Ryan says up front his 1911 rigs will not fit the Sig and he doesn't have a form to build one.
Any suggestions?????
I like how the stock grips look but I find I have to have something larger (Hogue wrap-arounds) to make it better fill my hand. Otherwise it is a nice shooting, good looking. dependable 1911. Any help on a good leather rig would be appreciated.

About half the holsters I have work with it, any that are tightly molded will not. Neither of my kydex holsters work though and these are what I generally use for range work. I'm still on the hunt for a nice paddle myself...

If I find one I'll let you know. Are you going to do anything with the sights??

Probably not as I don't shoot bullseye type stuff. A bit more contrast would be nice but it's not worth the expense to me...

That's pretty cool. Beats standing in one spot shooting at paper.

Continued to dig thru my holster box and found a Blackhawk CQC that works with this one. I have some nice leather iff'n I want to carry this but I'm happy I found a kydex paddle that works...

I bought a Mitch Rosen that is built for a Ruger SR9, SR9c from Don and the Sig fits in it, couldn't believe I got that lucky.

I use a TTGunleather IWB for my Sig 1911 Tactical Op and find it works great. I know it's not the paddle you're looking for, but it gave me the excuse to show off my piece.

Ok, DinkyDauDon. I gotta ask: Where did you have those grips made and where can I get some?
