Sig Sauer Ultra 1911 3.5" - Anyone Report on Reliability?

I am interested in purchasing a Sig Sauer Ultra 1911 w/ 3.5" barrel for concealed carry.
http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProdu...-two-tone.aspx

Does anyone have one? If so, how reliable has it been? Meaning: how many shots fired, how many malfunctions and with what ammo.

Comparing the Sig to other Officer size 1911's, the Sig has great features for the money. But I won't carry it unless I know how reliable it is considering small-frame 1911's have a reputation for being "finicky".

Spare the "just buy brand XXXX and don't worry about reliability" comments. I appreciate your feedback!

I don't have any experience with Sig 1911's, but I know they make quality firearms and that's not a bad looking little gun, with many features that I like in a CC 1911. If you like it, then I say go for it.

Go with the C3 short grip and longer barrel, the barrel is not the had part to conceal the grip portion is.

When the Sig 1911's first hit the market, I didn't care for them. But, after handling them a the gun shows, I've grown to like their designs. The quality of the construction is also much higher than other 1911's in the $900.00, price range.
