My next handgun is going to be a 1911 and the Sigs just became available in Massachusetts. I love my P239 and figured that the quality would be on par. I'd love to hear your opinions/experiences.



Thanks,



David

I have three 1911 style 45's but none are Sig's... I have my eye on the Sig 1911, and will more than likely it will be a future purchase. I've handled one and it felt really good in my hand and I heard many good things about it. The Sig 1911's front strap has checkering which gives me a little extra "stick" in my grip.

i have a friend that has a sig 1911 and i think they're very low budget parts, not impressed not compared to my SW1911PD w/rails. This gun already comes with almost all the things that ppl with 1911 upgarde to. SW bang for your buck

I had a Revolution Carry C3 1911 from about 2008.
It had a alloy frame and stainless slide.
It was a well made, good looking gun that was very pleasant to shoot. I would have it today except I found a Springer Compact SS 1911 that was in limited supply. I had searched a long time for it.Since I had two the same size, I traded for a 2 week old 938. It had a bit of an issue, so Sig made it 100%.No regrets at all.
Sig makes a lot of models. Choose carefully and you will love it.
Springfield makes a very good 1911 and also has a lifetime warranty.

I would buy a Sig ultra compact but they treat southpaws like red headed stepsons. The only ambi are 5 inchers and I have one of them in a loaded springfield. Bottom line is I bought a Kimber ultra plus.Ttill would like a Sig though.

I have a Sig XO 1911 and compared to my sons Colt 1911 my Sig is way ahead. Netherlands Sig shoots and handles like a dream tight but smooth.

I'm also a lefty and I've long learned to deal with the right handed world. I'd also like to pick up a 45 but have hesitated for the same reasons. I did recently have my mag release switched to the opposite side and I'm still trying to get used to it.

I know what you mean by adapting,but with a 1911 that is just too dangerous for MY liking. With the SIG P-2xx it is quite natural for me and I improvise quite well.

I have a sig 1911 c3 I carry all the time.. It's a great gun and I would recommend it to anyone that wants .45 power in a carry conceal. My other carry guns are a HK p2000sk which I love and a sig P239. I have several other carry guns but I actually prefer the C3 or the HK. Great trigger and very accurate. You won't be disappointed with a sig 1911

I went with a Remington R1 for my 1911 experience. Fun going retro and the price was right. My other .45 is a Glock 21. The night/day difference make my days when I (rarely) get SIG fatigue. Both make me appreciate my P guns more when I switch back.

I really want a plain-Jane Series 70 blued Colt as my first 1911... They're so hard to find now...

This is exactly why I haven't pulled the trigger. The P series is easy to deal with and I can get by and I agree on the 1911's. I've considered a Kimber but I've heard some conflicting stories on different makes, so I've hesitated there. I like ambi guns but they can be tough to come by.
