Hey guys,
Is the Fastback Carry 1911 a good gun to buy for a first 1911Three mags with only a few hundred rounds in excellent condition would go for how much?

Thanks in advance!

GT is the best! :wavey:

I picked up a new sig 1911 last weekend, 150 rounds through it on Sunday and I am in love. I highly recommend it for the $$!

I haven't seen any used ones for sale, so don't know what a good price might be. The Sigs have an external extractor. Fine by me, but not JMB's original design. Some people balk at the idea. If I remember, they use a series 80 style firing pin safety. A common feature.

The Sig bobtail grip is more like (is?) the Kimber than the Ed Brown. Lower and rounder. The EB is more a slanted cutoff and comes up a little higher. I have a Dan Wesson which uses the EB bobtail main spring housing. I like mine, but is definitely feels different from the standard grip.

Again, the bobtail is a variant to the original design so some may not approve. If it feels good in your hand, I'd say go for it. Sig are made well enough.

I have a new one and I love it. I paid $1050 out the door. I have over 1400 rounds fired without a single error or complaint.

I dont know what to do! I'm so confused.

I have $900.00

I want to get a gun with a rail for a light for home defense. I'm not sure if you can put a light on a 1911 w/out a rail?

I'm stuck between Kimber and Sig leaning towards Sig.

Found this today at our local store for $799.00
1911 TACPAC - Sig Sauer

Was looking at the Tactical Operations Sig alone
1911 Tactical Operations - Sig Sauer


www.sigsauer.com/catalogproductdetails/1911-tactical-operations.aspx

Ok, looking at specs the Tacop gun is the same as the tacpac gun except magwell and night sights. worth an extra $250.00 ???????

IMO the TacOps is worth the extra money. I have night sights and ambi-safety on all my pistols so it makes sense to me to buy a pistol that already has them. The extra goodies in the TacPac really do nothing for me personally. A laser is nice but in HD situation I'd rather have a light. Plus the holster in the TacPac doesn't hold the pistol with the laser attached.

I've got the Sig 1911 Extreme and I love it.

Crimson Trace make a Lightguard, I believe that's what it's called, that mounts to the trigger guard. Other than that you would have to have some kind of rail to mount a light on a 1911.

are you set on a 1911 design? I'm a die hard 1911 person and I love my HK45...which has a rail system for a light etc. This has become my bedside gun.

I have heard nothing but good things about the Sig 1911s

I have a Ruger SR1911 and would love for my next 1911 to be one of the Sigs

Yeah, good or bad I've always wanted a 1911. Glock, S&W,Ruger,Sig are all guns I own but no 1911's and never had one.

Looking for a nightstand/target gun. Against the purists idea of perfection I'm thinking rail for a light. Which brings me down to =
Kimber tactical elite II or
Sig Extreme

I did see that and that is part of the reason I'm considering the Extreme.

I have a Kimber 1911. I bought it new about 18 years ago. Great gun. I'm afraid I don't have any experience with the Sig.

I'd go with the Sig over any Series II Kimber, especially for the price. They goofy Kimber SII FPS isn't needed and can fail from my experiences.

Is Kimber's FPS different than the normal Series 80 FPS?

Yes.

Kimber uses a Schwartz safety, Colt uses their own proprietary safety.

A friend of mine who I shoot with regularly has a Sig 1911 which seems to shoot accurately and reliably.
My only experience with Kimber was terrible, and I wouldn't touch another based on that.
Not to complicate things, but why not look at Springfield as well? They have the best warranty and customer service in the business.

I have the Sig 1911 XO model which is pretty much the bottom end. Among other things, it doesn't have the ambidextrous safety.

http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProductDetails/1911-xo-black.aspx

I like the gun a lot. It shoots every bit as well as my Colts and has eaten my reloads just fine.

If I were looking for yet another 1911, I would get another XO!

One problem: The XO didn't fit any of my 1911 holsters. The SERPA style holster from Sig works well and I finally got my Don Hume holster after waiting several months. It is a pretty nice holster and keeps the gun in and tight with the slant keeping the grip from printing.

TRP is a little above my price range and the others I've not really looked into.

Thanks,

Now I'm looking
Sig Extreme or
STI Duty One!


Getting close to pulling the trigger either way.

Green Dragoon, he's being serious.

18 years ago Kimber was fine. When they went to the II series guns their QC took a screaming sumo wrestler on a high board dive right into a waste recycling plant.

I will not touch a new production Kimber.
