Thinking Sig Stainless 1911

I have the 1911 bug. Anyone shoot one of these? It looks sweet.

Comments and experience, please. Holsters, extra mags, mag pouches, where to buy, etc.

Thanks in advance,
Dan in ABQ

Sig makes a solid 1911. I'm not a fan of the slide styling at all though.

I have the STX model, which has been great.

Ive had only 2 mag related jams out of prolly 500rds.
(Avoid the wilson 7rd mag with convex follower.)Never cleaned it, just a little lube. And I shoot mostly tula.
Shoots fantastic.

I have the stainless with the rail. It is one of the nicest 1911 triggers I have felt out of the box, out of the several that I own.

The styling of the slide is uniquely non-1911, and the external extractor also sets it apart.

Very accurate, out of the box. No complaints.

I have the same one, and I absolutely LOVE it. Had a Remington and a cheaper Springfield before, neither come close to this. I understand Springfield has some higher end 1911's but the one I had was in the $650 range and was nowhere near the quality of the Sig.

I have, nice shooters I had a full sized scorpion and liked it but eventually sold it because I have a Tac Ops and well it was redundant and I needed a Commander..

For some reason , I have run into a few that have had really weak recoil springs lately don't know if Sigs had a bad batch but I have changed out 3 on various full sized Sigs to cure some sluggish feeding , you could tell they were very weak when you racked the slides, they felt like 10 or 8 lb springs and were noticeably compressed when I took them out.

I bought a full size TacOps last summer, and have probably 3000rnds through it already. It is by far the best 1911 I have ever owned or shot. I could have gotten one that was 3x the price, but what would I have really gained? And I for one, like the non-traditional slide.

Edit: any holster made for the 1911 GSR will fit the non-traditional slide

I bought a Stainless Target when the current line came out. If the SIG 1911's are still being built with the care mine was done with, I would say they are an incredible value.

I just bought the Sig 1911 Traditional Compact Stainless. They make full size traditional models too. I really like it so far. It has the traditional slide profile instead of the squared off look of most Sigs. Not the greatest trigger but I'm hoping that will clean up with more use.

I've owned two Sig 1911's and my buddy has the full size stainless...

All functioned flawlessly and delivered tremendous groupings.

I currently have the Nightmare Carry and getting it NIB for $940, sealed the deal, for me!

Don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

I've got my sights set on a Sig 1911 Stainless Rail, or maybe a TTT or maybe just the Nitron Rail heck I haven't decided yet. My friend traded some guns and wound up with a TacOps and I was impressed with it, the features you get and the quality of the gun for the price seems like a real good value.

I personally don't need a magwell or an ambi safety, plus I'm going to put thin grips on it anyways which is why I'm leaning away from the TacOps. I like the style of the slide, the whole gun looks like a 1911 with a Sig twist, I think it looks good.

So you would blame a high quality mag over the crap ammo you are shooting?

I prefer the GSR stainless Nitron....very durable. Magpul grips are awesome also! Also like the slide better than my Gold Cup Series 70.
