    I'd go Sig 1911, get your hands on one and you will see why.

    You can't really go wrong with either.The 220 and the 1911 are both great shooters.The 1911 is quite a bit thinner than the 220 so if you're plan is for a ccw you might want to think about the 1911.If it's for home,range and or hunting you will not be sorry you bought a 220.Was chatting with the guy who gave me my ccl class not to long ago and he was saying one of the things he regretted the most was selling his 220 in order to pick up something different.

    I've had the P220 too. Both are great pistols but that 1911 is freaking awesome. Trust me , go feel one up, you will buy it.

    I'd surely go 1911 myself as its the best for me. That said, I certainly cannot say which might be the best for you. Too many personal specifics involved for others to make a credible decision such as this for someone else.

    When I found the Spartan, I knew I had to take it home and add it to my 1911 collection. It is a fine shooter!

    I have a SIG 1911 and a p229. I love them both but very different. Since they're different calibers its easy...I have both. If I were choosing between a 220 and a 1911 I might pick the 1911. It's a great platform and SIG really gives you your money's worth with their 1911s.

    I have a 1911, 2 P220's one Wet German the other a SS Exeter, WG P226 and a P6. The P220 will always be my favorite. But both the 1911 and P220 are fine pistols. I just like the safer carry of the P220.

    I would wait until the new sig 227 comes out! ;) its a double stack 45 acp with a 12 round standard capacity, they will be makining factory made 14 round extended mags or mag extensions or something like the one in the picture ,threaded barrel will be an option for more $$

    If you want a gun that says " its time to kick ass and chew bubble gum" id go with the p220 simply because it looks aggressive and a bit more unique, they're " hell and back reliable"its also used by some law enforcement agencies i think most use the p226 though. If you want a gun that says handsome, gentleman's gun Id go with the classic 1911 there are many makers and models allot more aftermarket parts and spare parts can be easily found for the 1911. Almost all 1911 parts are interchangeable with a little sanding and grinding ALMOST not all but im pretty sure they all use the same 1911 mags

    The only reason I bought my 220 was because I already had a few 1911s (too pretty to carry on a daily basis) and wanted a 45 I could bang around. That said, a few years later I picked up a TacOps as well. It's a win win situation, either gun is a great choice.

    My vote is to get them both! Once you get the Signess, there is NO Cure. :)
