    Hey,

    My birthday is next week and I am planning on picking up a SIG 1911 of some sort. I already started my B-day present extravaganza yesterday when I picked up a nice matching P226 West German model and will be picking up a P228 next week.

    I know they have had their problems in the past, but what I have been reading seems to indicate that they have worked out their troubles.

    Here are a few points of interest:

    1. Around $1,000

    2. Do any of the SIG 1911's offer internal extractors?

    3. Do any of them not have a rail?

    4. I am looking for a more sleek, GI style. I checked out theor traditional line and they seem pretty good, but I couldn't find one with an internal extractor.

    Thanks.

    To make a long story short, if you want a real traditional 1911, look elsewhere.

    There are many great options.

    They don't make an internal extractor, which is what kept me from buying one for a long time. Finally I bought a tactical operations and love it. Only gripe is while it works I don't don't like that extractor

    Yeah. I love the feel of the SIG 1911's but can't seem to really fall in love with them.

    Maybe I'll just pony up the extra coin and Baer.

    I like the tactical operation model. I dig the all black. If I do get one and have to deal with the ejector that is probably the model I will get.

    Otherwise, I think I will either get a nice Springer RO or loaded, a Les Baer, or just save the money and get a Ed Brown or Wilson.

    There are too many choices.

    don't forget the colt custom shop. If I get another one that's probably where it'll come from.

    Any reason you don't want the external extractor, other then looks? I actually prefer it.

    It really is just a look thing. I'm sure it functions just as good!

    I also don't mind the EE, but I do like the look of the internal better.

    I have had 2 Sig 1911's in the past a XO and a C3 and they were flawless. They are ugly but They sure do run.

    1. Yes, there are.

    2. I don't believe they use internal extractors.

    3. Yes, many models don't have a rail. Looks like the 1911 Traditionals definitely don't.

    4. See #2 above.

    I have a 2nd generation SiG GSR Revolution with their classic "P" series pistol slide profile. Their pistols with this slide profile won't fit into a holster made for a pistol with a traditional slide profile. (loose floppy, sloppy leather or nylon holsters excepted;))

    My GSR Revolution has never had a failure of any kind.

    They work even though they are not traditional. I myself don't have one yet. But will by years end. Maybe.

    I looked hard at one and ended up saving money and buying Glock. I liked the SIG but decided it was not for me - yet.

    If I remember, the slide on the SIG is a little different from other 1911's in size - this might be an issue with a tight fitting holster and limit your options.
