Today was my first day shooting my Sig 1911, I can't believe how friendly and accurate that gun is. After some friends and I got off from work we decided to head out for a "friendly" competition ( we shoot Three Gun and IPSIC but never against each other so time to find out). With that said there was a Para Ord competition 2011, STI Tactical 2011 and my Sig Nitron 1911(the cheapest). Im the best pistol shooter in the team so the competition wasnt fair, I shot the other pistols to test for accuracy and function.... Tha Para would not cycle correctly, the target sights seem a bit to high and hard to aquire. The STI felt off balance and the sights being black rear and front seem to get lost, it cycled like a dream but even after taking my time between shots I couldnt group less than 3" even with it having a bull barrel. The Sig has the more agressive grip that tends to bother a little after a while but other than that it has the most accurate grouping of the three guns. I was able to aquire the sights rapidly and follow up shots weren't a problem considering that the others are .40 and the Sig a .45. The STI owner was also able to shoot better with the Sig and said "this gun aims itself" while he was shooting it. I was able to group 3 shots that were connected and touching. The only thing that bothered me a little was the trigger, it feels like its cutting into the finger after 40-50 rounds. This handgun is an overall winner in my eyes and a great introductory 1911. Some left the range today wishing for a Sig... Haha

Your story just reinforces my feelings that Sig Sauer is the best when it comes to firearms! Thanks for sharing...

Glad to read a report like that. After considering an STI for a bit I decided to order a Sig 1911. Recently I have read nothing but praise for the Sig 1911's.

It is a great gun for a great price (TacPac w/ Rail $822). I guess that for a 1911 purist seeing Sigs squared look and the external extractor might be a bit too "non-traditional" but the look comes with the brand and the external extractor fixes many of the 1911s usual bugs. Another thing to add is that both the other guns could use a ramp job since the angle is too straight up as opposed to the Sig having a more angled ramp making it better for different ammo (since I plan to use 185gr semi Wad Cutters). I wouldnt doubt that I could take this gun to Iraq with me and it wouldnt let me down.

Forgot to mention that after yesterdays range let down, the Para was dropped off at the shop today for a ramp job so that it could feed correctly. I would be very mad as this gun should work excellent out of the box, Para has a good rep behind it. Maybe the Sig will make its debut at a steel challenge this saturday, we'll see...

I like to shoot 1911's, but at the ranges I use, I've not found them to be more accurate than my P220 or HK 45's. I use to shoot competition forty years ago with a Colt 1911, and back then they were superior, but modern pistols have come a long way. That said, my 4.25 inch SIG C3 is just as accurate as my FS Springfields and better than my 3 inch STI and Kimber. In fact, the C3 is just about my favorite pistol.
