Sig 1911 at the range

Got to shoot my new Sig 1911 (XO) for the second time today and have to say I'm liking it more and more. Went through 70 rounds of 155gr LSWC with 3 powder loads, 100 rounds of 180gr LSWC with 3 powder loads, 20 old hydroshocks and 40 rounds of good old 230gr WWB. 1 FTF with one of the 155gr LSWC's and I'm sure it was the ammo, not the pistol. These were my first 45acp reloads and I didn't leave quite enough edge above the cartridge mouth. This was with the 3 Sig mags it came with and a Wilson combat I picked up. Sights are definitely set for the heavier bullets as the 230gr were spot on and the 155gr's way high. Only complaint is the Ergo grips. The pebble finish is a little to course and they started to rub rather badly after a lot of rounds. Easy fix. Oh, being left handed a ambi saftey will be needed as I had to use my right hand to snap it off when I used it. I'm starting to like this 1911 thing.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most

Good to hear that your Sig 1911 is keeping you happy. The ones I have handled seem to be very well made.
I never talked to anyone who had to fire their gun who said "I wished I had the smaller gun and fewer rounds with me" Just because you find a hundred people who agree with you on the internet does not mean you're right.

I love my Sig 1911 and find it remarkably smooth shooting, delivering mild recoil with 200 grain SWC's that I prefer. I'd buy another for sure.

Good report. I've been interested in the Sig 1911's for sometime now.

Sig make a nice pistol. I've had great performance with this railed stainless version. The magwell and grips were added.

I have a Sig GSR 1911 that I really love and haven't had any problems at all out of in 5 years of shooting it. Great pistol and I am not even a fan of the Sig P series, but I think highly of their 1911's.

Are the frames cast on the SIG 1911's or forged like the Springfield Armory models?

That great, may have to add one to my stash of guns!
Spent brass to me is like the ring to Gollum "We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious"
