    Hello everyone. I went to my local gun shop to see what was going on. They were extremely busy and sold out of most of the polymer wonders. As I was walking by a case I saw a Sig 1911 target and asked to see it. 30 min later I was driving home with it. I can't wait to shoot it. It came with a TW25 sample. I plan on just using my normal oil-M-Pro 7 lpx as lube, never been a fan of grease. It also came with what seemed to be pretty decent factory mags, though I did buy some Wilson combat mags. Overall I was impressed with the quality of this handgun. Anyone have any experience with Sig 1911s I would love to hear from you. I will post pics and a range report when I have more time.

    Congrats, I like the Sig 1911 line. I think they did well getting into a very competitive market. S&W, SA, Kimber (too name a few, I know there's more) all have good options around the $700 to $1200 range also.

    And the Wilson mags were a nice touch, I also like the Chip Power 10's.

    Congrats! I recently picked up a Sig Tac Ops. I came with (4) 8rd mags, which is standard with that model. It also has night sights. Great shooter and a great gun for the money for sure.

    It'll soon have a Harrison Extreme short black solid trigger, which will look better than what came with it and a flush crowned barrel to boot. There should be a Surefire X300 landing in the mail today or tomorrow for it as well. I'm really liking this gun. :cool:

    Thanks. :cool: The X300 landed today, but the gun is at Metaloy getting a new trigger and flush crowned barrel. Perfect timing. :faint:

    My P210 Legend came with a tube of grease too. I think that I will stick with gun oil.


    Well...you asked for it. SIG America can't even turn out decent guns of their own designs much less making a design that's not of their own. Do they still assemble parts from Caspian? :tongueout:

    After looking at Kimbers, Colts, Springers and others, I bought a Sig Traditional 1911 reverse 2-tone. Shot it this past weekend and it seems excellent - great fit and finish, very accurate. Very good looking too.
