    Share your thoughts on Sig 1911

    The 2020 catalog really cut down the selections, will these even be around in the future?

    How does the scorpion fastback compare to CBOB or Kobra?

    I have a Sig C3, very nice pistol, light weight, action is smooth as butter, and just an all around nice pistol. Very accurate.

    I saw one of those for sale right after I checked the Sig 2020 catalog and saw they had been removed from the catalog and the website. So I passed. Sig had that C3 and a number of "compact" models with the officer length frame in years past. They all felt very nice in hand. Really nice gun though! Good to know it shoots as good as it looks.

    But I am hoping that between GT and maybe 1911forum someone might have details to Sig's Future with 1911s. It seems like Sig is focusing solely on polymer anymore. Most of the 220/226/229s have moved under the legion house and a lot of the other offerings from those models are now obsolete.

    I have two of the Sig Max 1911s that were spec'd out by Max Michel (one in 9mm, one in .40S&W). I took off the Dawson Ice magwells and put on standard mag wells. Both had the series 80 safety parts removed and frame filler added. Both have Ed Brown 18# competition mainsprings. Trigger pulls are a crisp 3.75 pounds. They have both been 100% reliable for me. I do feel that in cartridges other than 45ACP (9mm, 40) that the external extractors and ramped barrels do help with reliability. I love them both and they are accurate and sweet shooters!
