Woe there, Sig Sauer has a custom shop as well. There are plenty of more expensive 1911's but Sig Sauer offers the most standard features for the bucks. I own a Sig Platinum Elite with a few non factory components from Fusion. The OP could have one built as well unless a name mean more than performance.

Not exactly the 1911, but cool as ice.

I like Sig 1911, but in the $1500-$1800 range , there are higher quality guns to be had. I almost about a Platinum Elite until I called Sig and asked what components or process made it special from the custom shop. I was told the only difference between it and other non custom shop guns was cosmetic differences. Other than that, it's mechanically the same gun. No special Gunsmithing attention or anything. That changed my mind. You can contact Sig to confirm if needed.

I have over 1400 rounds through my kimber warrior and have had zero issues with reliability or feeding. I use it as my everyday carry, and keep the light for the rail at home for when i go to bed. Its a real sweet gun and i. My opinion its worth the $1475. Also the springfield operator, and sig sauer tac ops are good choices as well, but the sigs tend to have a little quirk when it comes to putting them back together.

Tactical is a loosely applied term, Colt is a choice.



Tactical comes in many sizes.

I have a Wilson combat awesome gun. Sad thing is I'm just as accurate with my kimber tle and the kimber was less than half of the Wilson. IMO unless you are shooting competition or just have the extra money to spend you don't need one of the custom guns. Now wanting is another thing. I also have a fusion with a rail on it. Check out fusion firearms. Very nice custom guns but some can be had for less than 1k if I remember right
