Of the two choices listed, I would go with a Sig. My daily carry is a Sig Stainless Carry and it fits into my Galco holster that was designed for Colt.

You mentioned that you were using Wilson Combat mags. I use them exclusively in my .45 1911's and they are flawless. So you made a good mag choice, sounds like now you just need to shoot the snot...

Some of us just can't resist personalizing our pistols. Some things, like trigger work doesn't show, but makes a world of difference.
