Sig 1911 C3

What can you all tell me about these?? Price? Reliability?
Does not have GSR on the slide, it does have a beveled mag well and some really nice grips.
Brand spankin' new, can't wait to shoot it.

I've have a C3 for about a year now & its my favorite handgun. Its been 100% reliable, very accurate & its my EDC. It carries very well & I think its a great looking 1911. When I got it I had a hard time finding a holster to suit me & finally had one made. Personally I would not trade it for another $1000.00 1911 out there.

There have been several threads in the last month or so on the C3. Break out your search-fu and you should easily find them and you can probably get more feedback on it.

I just picked one up about a month ago. I have only put about 200 rounds through, but haven't had a single problem.

The search button is like way up at the top of my screen, and I gotta type like 5 letters....geez.....I'm just too lazy for all this effort!





I did the search, looks like it's not a fav of the 1911 dieharders because of the slide dimensions, but I love the way it looks and feels. Time will tell! Now I need a fudge round or two to get my energy level back up after all this searchin'...

Wasn't saying that to be a dik by any means. Just seems like you weren't getting a lot of response and like I said, there have been a few threads about the C3 lately. I think the general issue is definitely the slide. Most concur you can do better for similar cash and not have to worry about holster issues.

The rcs has been "anti snagged"- they round off the corners. I have an rcs and have no complaints about the gun.

thanks Lawdog, I'm interested in the RCS, but theres not one locally I can get a look at. Can you tell me if the barrel has an integral ramp, or if theres a firing pin block safety?
Thanks for your help sir,
Randall

No ramped barrel and it does have a firing pin block. It is really nice for carry. I was trying to sell mine but bud's guns has them for sell bnib for what I was asking for mine. I have had some problems getting certain kydex holsters to fit but most leather ones fit well.

Why does the slide release lever have a different finish than the safety and other stainless (satin silver) finished surfaces? I just ordered a 5" rail SSS version (stainless finish) and I know I'm going to be sending the gun back to Sig after I get it. I called them about it, and they said they weren't sure what I was referring to. I've seen them. This didn't look like a problem on 2009, maybe some 2010 models. I have been hot and heavy wanting to have a Sig 1911 for awhile now.
