I have no experience with that exact model, but I have fired a couple Sig 1911s. I was very impressed by them. Accuracy seemed to be very good. Fit and finish seemed very nice, and we haven't had an issue with reliability. I think you will be pleased with it.

Congrats on your new purchase. Let us know when she arrives and what you think of her.

I have a 2008 GSR that is my fun gun. I had to have custom trigger work cause the stock trigger was sloppy, hard, and gritty. It snaps like a potato chip now. It groups 5" for me at 20yds. The gun is capable of better. It has a EGW pin block and a heavy Wichita comp. It is a very soft shooting 45.

Looks like a bobtail to me. I've never held a bobtail but lot's of people claim they feel better.

Appears to be a derivative of the Nightmare introduced a while back. Personally, I like the carry cut, bobtail, fastback, or however it is referred to. Makes for a better grip-feel in my opinion.

Had a bobtail cut added to a semi custom built for me by Fusion Firearms

I recently picked one up also. Have cleaned and lubed it, but work hasn't allowed me the time to make it to the range yet. The only thing I didn't like about it is how the 8 round magazine sticks out past the grip. Fine for the range, but I don't think it would be so good for carry. A set of Wilson 47C mags cured that. I'll post more after I've fired it.

I like that Reliable. Nice and clean with no roll marks.

I own the Sig Fastback 1911. I haven't owned it long, and it's only had two range trips.

But yes, you will love it! This is the only full size bobtail type 1911 I own, but I do own several 1911's. I really like the feel of it. I didn't think I would care much for the feel, but I was wrong. It fits so comfortably in my hand. And of course, like most good quality 1911's, it has an outstanding trigger.
