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

I already carry a Glock about 75% of the time anyway. :supergrin:

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:

I'd jump on it, Sigs are really well built for the money. I'm considering one of the Extremes for another railed gun.

It's a good deal, but I'd save a little more and buy a MC Operator.

I have a Sig Tac-Ops with a threaded barrel and I have not had any issues except one in the first few mags with a Ranger T not completely going into battery. Since then I've gone approx. 1500 rds suppressed and un-suppressed without issue. I got mine for $864 and love it. Take it for what it's worth, just more info for the thread.

Your friends experiences with their "train wreck" pistols could be distressing for someone considering a purchase. Fortunately, I've had much better experiences with these Sig's(P220, 1911R, P226); they've all performed flawlessly and just as reliably as the G17 and G23.

Sig 1911's are good quality pistols for their price range and you get a lot of gun. You're friend's experience is just that, theirs...

Went by today and got them down to $775. I'm very tempted. Box, papers, (4) 8rd Metalform mags and gun may have had 50 rounds through it. The original owner bought it there when they didn't have the model he wanted. A week or two after he bought the Tac Ops, the model he was wanting came in. He traded it back to the same store. :whistling:

I think they're Metalform mags, but don't hold me to that one. I'm a Wilson or Tripp Cobra guy, but these work just fine in the Sig. :cool: For the money I paid, I don't think I've ever gotten a gun for the money that this one is....at least so far. :)

I have an original SIG GSR 1911, as well as a newer SIG Custom Shop STX and the shorter C3 model. I love them all. You won't be disappointed. I've loved SIG's for years, long before they even sold 1911's. True quality, engineering and customer service.

I read until my head hurt to educate myself a little on the 1911's before I made a purchase, just my nature. Everything I read about this firearm was good. I read nothing bad. Sig owners are a bit cultish which is a good thing because they believe in their choice. Kinda like Glock.

I had my choices down to the tac ops, extreme, and the TRP. If I didn't get a bit of extra sudden cash it would have been the Tac ops.

You did good!

Nice score, man! For that deal, I could certainly learn to love (or at least live with) the external extractor.
