I checked out a S&W 1911 at my local gun shop for the first time. I know only what I've read about them, but had to admit that the trigger was nicer than any out of the box 1911 I had in the past (its been a long time since I had a 1911). Pricewise, I got the impression it wouldn't be a bad gun for shooters who didn't plan on having much custom work done on them. Any opinions? Next I was shown a Sig 1911 Blackwater addition. it was finished very nicely and seemed smooth to operate. The trigger seemed decent, but I can't say it was any better or worse than the Smith. It was priced a couple hundred more than the Smith. Anyway, again, anyone with any experience with the Sig? Other than the sides of the slide, has Sig deviated much from the original Browning design...can you use any 1911 mag in them? I'm still looking and in no hurry.... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
