Like new Sig Tac Ops for $800. Deal?

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. 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?

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.

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.

Get it

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. 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.

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?

$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.

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)

I have the full size .45 Sig Scorpion. It shoots like a dream. Easy, accurate, reliable.

http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProdu...-scorpion.aspx

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. My Rock 10 is gonna look a tad different from the rest though... Already in the works.............................................
