A friend of mine is looking at both of these guns and I am trying to steer him towards the STI. Just wondering what opinions you guys have on which gun is the better choice.

I would take the STI for sure.

Lawdog has a C3 I believe and speaks very highly of it. I would take the STI. I really like the Guardian.

Out of those two, I would go with STI, since there will be an easier chance to find a holster for it.

But throw in a couple more hundo and find a lightly used DW CCO. There's one on here for sale around $1200.

I love STIs, but I'm not sure looks are their strong point. ;)

Yeah, STI builds a great 1911 for a good price.

Agreed. I think they offer some of the best bang for the buck 1911s at various pricepoints. Great guns. Great value. Great customer service. Win. Win. Win.

Sig could have had gold mine when it came to 1911s but they screwed it all up.

I had both. Both are excellent guns. The Sig WILL fit damn near every leather holster. If not then you will have to let the holster form to the Sig.

Kydex holsters will not fit 100% unless you order for the Sig. But it is easy to mold a regular kydex to a Sig with a heat gun.

I actually liked the Sig better, but I hate the new model Sig grip safety. They used to use a Caspian GS, now they use a STI.
