    My friend made an impulse buy and quickly regretted it. He bought a Sig Sauer C3 with Crimson Trace grips bnib from Gander. I was present for the only 200 rds put through it and it ran flawlessly. He paid close to 1200 and I picked it up for 800 no complaints here.
    Only thing is he did not wipe off the packing grease before he shot it and it ended up baking into the slide. We are currently working with Sig to resolve this.

    Fine lookin' Sig 1911 ;). Not to mention the Ruger SR1911 looks pretty good too.

    Tell the truth, you had your gun pointed in his general direction when you made that deal didn't you?

    Don't CT grips usually run the price up 1-200 bucks? I'd sell them as new (so long as you really don't like them) and put some pretty wood on there.

    And after he found out that all that was wrong with it was he didn't clean out the packing grease, is he still your friend after you fleecing him?:confused: ;)




    P.S. In regard to the baked on packing grease, I've read ways to get stubborn cosmoline out of old antigue & war surplus rifles which might be helpful & not have to depend on the factory. Since I don't have any of them, didn't pay a lot of attention to how to do it. If they have a section here for that, might check with them.

    I have one that I use for everyday carry, along with a set of of CT grips. Mine has the activitaion button on the side, which took a little getting used to

    I agree to an extent. The Ruger is a better looking pistol as I much prefer the internal extractor and its just a smoother looking pistol but function wise I've gotta give it to the Sig. The trigger is much smoother with around a 4lb pull where as the Ruger is a bit rough with I would say closer to a 5lb pull. The Sig is more accurate as well for me. The Ruger trigger is getting smoother as i put more rounds down the pipe. Both are very nice pistols and I intend to keep both for years to come. Its safe to say at this point I've caught the 1911 bug!

    It won't perform miracles, but get some KG-10 Dry Lube & put some on the sear. I use a doubled pipe cleaner, dipped in the KG-10 & slip it down in front of the cocked hammer (empty gun of course) & ride the hammer down onto it, squeezing the KG-10 onto the sear. I've seen it lower pull weight 1/2 to 3/4 lbs. It will not correct for flaws, rough parts, etc. I also like it on the trigger mechanism. It is a liquid, but dries quickly.

    Hint: The black will wash off your hands, but not out of your clothes!
