Who could 'not be fond' of a 1911 trigger?
Can criticize reliability, capacity and other things but the trigger on a 1911 is what most others wish for?

Agreed! Hard to beat a 1911 in terms of a gun that is pleasing to shoot!

I have a Springer EMP (9mm) and a Range Officer Compact (.45acp), both are fine shooting handguns, especially the EMP...but the Sig 1911 Compact in the glorious nickel finish just puts the RO compact in it's place = which is #2.

The Springfield does 'feel' different, (not in a bad way) but I didn't notice how different till I shot the Sig.

I have never shot a pistol (for the very 1st time) as well as I did the Sig. Made me look better than I am. Just 'something' about the Sig that I get along with very well.

Glad it does!
I agree.. Great feeling gun. Just made me wish I was better and "deserved it" more!

I'm the same way with my basses... They are much nicer and better instruments than I am a musician ... But I'm getting better all if the time.

Will do the same with the sig,!!!!

I have a Springfield EMP4 9mm and a Dan Wesson Pointman 7 and the triggers are excellent. But I have to say that my P226 Legion SAO is just as good as any 1911.

The ONLY reason I don't own a STX is because I found out they were making a Tacops in 10mm. But I still want an STX.

Fondled one in Cabelas... oooh it was hard to put it back in the case and walk away. Actually the trigger was kinda sloppy on that one so it wasn't that hard to pass by .

They let you pull the trigger? Whenever I've been in a Cabela's they either put on a trigger lock, or instruct me to keep my finger outside the trigger guard.

Shot both my P226 and 1911 at an out door range for the first the yesterday... Also tried 20 yards for the first time...

Didn't do great with either but I seemed to do a bit better with the 1911....

They never said anything to me But it's not close by (near Baton Rouge) so I don't go there much.

How do they expect you to find one you like if you can't pull the trigger? Like buying a car "Uh, Sir, you can't sit in it"
