That little gun right there has gotten me into trouble. Was at the LGS and made a comment about how it looked and how feminine it was kinda like a pink Taurus. Will the guy behind the counter it was his carry piece took everything I had not to laugh at him I had to walk out thought. Sorry but when your six four and have a skull tattoo on your arm with a snake coming out the eyes you just cant carry a Rainbow gun.

If you're talking about Sigs's "Traditional 1911" commemorative, it's anything but "traditional." It's a reverse two-tone, three hole trigger, commander hammer, SIGLITEŽ night sights, front cocking serrations.

Look at this POS.

http://www.ammoland.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/SIG-1911-Anniv-RTSS-pistol.jpg

Further proof there are no "gun guys" in Exeter.







Based on the American Rifleman's latest issue, the Turnbull and Cylinder & Slide's 1911 commemoratives are the closest to being traditional. "Bill Laughridge is building a limited number of his own 1911 Commemorative, but here's the kicker he's making ALL the small parts and everything is being made in the exact same manner as they were in 1914. Very Labor Intensive. He searched and searched until he found the complete drawings for the pistol from 1914. These things are NOT current production parts guns. At $5,000 per copy they really are a bargain for the work that goes into each one, including the polishing and bluing by Turnbull."

I think Sig misused the word "traditional" in describing the new gun, but I think they meant it to mean they are going with a "traditional" slide shape instead of Sig's regular GSR shaped slide.

Either way I hardly think it is a total POS.

Functionally, their 1911s are okay, but trying to pull off a commemorative as something that remotely resembles the classic, is a joke. Up until a few months ago, their 1911 looked more like a P220 than a 1911.

Furthermore, Sig advertises their railed and tailed models as "classics." They are not classics. Sig Exeter no longer produces any classic pistols. They started with all the doo-dad, bling, ninja, crap about 6-7 years ago.

Yup. When you laid out 40 1911s on your dining room table the Sig stood out from the rest; it did have a nice lockup and trigger though. Remember prior to my getting the S&W, you mentioned that since I like Sigs, I might want a Sig 1911.

It bugs me that Exeter twists the facts; and the newbs fall for that crap.

ive never monkeyed with one but i certainly read more praise from owners than negative criticism.

i think what gets peoples goat is that they feel that Sig approaches the platform with arrogance. "Unmistakably Sig" is probably not the best marketing strategy for a platform that been doing just Dandy! without you for so long.

maybe not. maybe people just hate the way they look.

The history of the birth is interesting reading. It's essentially a parts gun, including the 220 looking slide. Until recently, Ruger never built a 1911, and from what I've seen and read, they got it right.

Circumstantial coincidence certainly indicates you're absolutely correct. I try not to bring up the Kimber connection because there are a lot of Kimber fans here, and I try not to insult them. What's interesting though, is the first 1911 I shot was a Kimber Custom II. :faint:

There is nothing about this Sig that is traditional...

I said traditional cause thats the model name. I know the difference. And honestly I think its a good looking 1911 with some cool features, the safety and maybe the naming are my only gripes. The only "traditional" 1911s I care about are actual gi issue 1911s, and thats for collectible/historical value, I could care less about the old style on a shooting gun, enhanced 1911s are soooo much better to me, Im not a purist, i just like a good shooter.

Well the 226 is most likely appropriate for a gay biker. The first 238 shown appeals to the fairer sex, while the second is a BUG for the 20-something Ninjas.





As for a traditional AR, this one is done right. Eugene Stoner would be proud.
