    I've been eyeing the Tac Ops series for awhile. Don't care a ton for a railed 1911, but would like to have one at the same time. :crazy: :rofl:The local range/gun shop has one in like new condition with four 8 round mags for $800. Everywhere I've looked, they're closing in or just above the 1K mark. Not a great deal, but you'd probably have to find a pretty desperate seller to get one in this condition any cheaper. I figure, worst case scenario, that I could always get my money back out of it. Thoughts/opinions? :wavey:

    I'm not a huge fan of the Sig 1911 styling, but it sounds like a decent price if you want a railed 1911.

    I've also thought about a Doublestar for a railed 1911. :dunno:

    Agreed - worst case you could almost certainly recoup 100% of your investment into the gun. If you want to try out a Sig/rail gun, I say go for it.

    They're series 80 guns as you know. How did the trigger feel?

    As for the series 80 thing, I've never been too concerned on whether a gun is a 70 or an 80 and the trigger is really nice. I'd say 3.75-4#'s. This wouldn't be a carry gun, and I doubt I would ever spend the money for a good light, as I already plenty of railed guns (Glock's, M&P's and XD/XDm's) and have never owned a light. I have thought about getting a light, but I won't go the $300+ route. It would be a S&W or Glock light most likely, if I ever did try one.

    You can't go wrong getting a new weapon.

    As far as the light goes, hard to imagine with all you've got tied up in sharp 1911s, you can't budget a good light.

    On my planet, it's dark half the time. It seems the creatures that dictate we go armed prefer that environment too.

    Good point. :thumbsup: I'm waiting to hear back on a trade before I buy, and am also looking at a new RIA 10mm project gun. If I go with the rail gun, I guess I should break down and get a top notch light for it. Besides, I could always use it on my other guns should I decide a railed 1911 isn't for me. :cool:

    My local gun store sells them for $998. I bought one and love it. Best bang for the buck in my opinion.

    So, I would think that a like new with 4 8 round mags should be a decent deal at $800 OTD? :dunno:

    $800 is a good deal IMO. Personally I have a thing for the Springfield MC Operator for a railed gun. I am normally not a railed guy but the MC operator does it for me.

    Stay away from sig 1911s two different friends of mind have them, a scorpion carry and a tac ops. The scorpion was a train wreck and the tac ops fails to go into battery more often than not. If your spending that kind of money, get a Remington Enhanced, Springfield Loaded or one of the Rugers and have a better gun

    My second choice for a rail gun is the Doublestar. I don't know anyone with a Sig 1911, and don't think I've ever shot a Sig 1911. I've shot plenty of other Sigs and the older ones were DEFINATELY better than the newer one's.

    For the price $800 out the door and 4 total mags, it's a good deal. But like you I'm looking at the RIA 10mm (damn you for your RIA 10mm post):steamed::tongueout:

    I have the full size .45 Sig Scorpion. It shoots like a dream. Easy, accurate, reliable.

    I'm not a Sig fan boy, my Sig P238 has been sent back to Sig and still does not go bang all the time. It made me pause before I bought this Scorpion. Glad I did it.

    On the Scorpion, the grips, magwell, trigger, sights... on the Scorpian all make me happy. It is one of my favorite range guns. I also concealed carry it at times (now that it is winter). Also, have shot it enough that it sometimes is on the nightstand.

    Yeah, I can live without the Sig Tac Ops, but I'm gonna get me one of those RIA 10mm's. I even put my G29 up for sale to help fund it. :cool: My Rock 10 is gonna look a tad different from the rest though...:cool: Already in the works.............................................:whistling:
