I stripped it, cleaned it, installed a Wilson Combat shock buffer, and went to the range. I hadn't even fired 21 rounds before I knew the shock buffer had to come out. In 21 rounds I got one stove pipe, and one failure to chamber a round. I worked the slide (probably should have done this more thoroughly at home) and found that the shock buffer took up ALL of the slide travel past the slide stop. The slide would lock open after the last round, but there was absolutely no room to slingshot the slide closed with the shock buffer in. I had to use the slide stop to release the slide. I took the shock buffer out and went through another 79 rounds of Remington UMC FMJ and 25 rounds of Remington Golden Sabre without any failures.
Accuracy was astonishing. Even at fifty feet at a pretty rapid rate I was keeping groups around the size of the palm of my hand (not counting the fingers). Closer in it was printing one ragged hole. It was shooting dead on, too. Not high, low or a little to one side or the other. It was hitting at point of aim.
This pistol came with a flat recoil spring. I like like the spring. They apparently have a longer life than traditional spring. But it does not grip the guide rod like a traditional spring. The guide rod in this gun has a smaller diameter than a traditional guide rod. The spring fits on it very loosely. This makes it a little akward to reassemble. The spring will slide out if you tilt the muzzle down during reassembly, and it is difficult to get it back on the guiderod inside the gun unless you take the slide back off. Take care not to let the spring slide out and all is good.
The trigger pull is phenomenal. I didn't measure it but it feels like a 4.5lb pull. It is super crisp. It's just there.
The take up is a tad gritty. Fine for a combat gun. But you can feel a little grit. I ordered a Cylinder and Slide Trigger Pull Reduction Kit. This kit doesn't really reduce the pull, but it does smooth take up. I have one in another Sig 1911 I have and it definitely smooths out the take up.
All in all, I am exceptionally pleased with this gun. I bolsters my opinion that Sig is producing one of the best 1911s out there today.

I would say it's probably easier to just detail strip and work on the existing parts to smooth out the trigger pull, but I'm training to be a gunsmith on my own time. Sometimes.it's more of a PITA to put in new parts than it is to work with existing ones.
Welcome from Idaho! Sweet frickin' pistol! Enjoy it!
