Sig Saur Commander 1911 with accessory rail




I have seen 1 Sig 1911 and it didn't look right. Now I see this one that isn't on Sigs website.

This is an outstanding looking pistol. Are there any Sig fans here?

I'm a Sig fan, I own two (not 1911's though), and one of those I carry daily. I know a few guys who have the Sig 1911's and both enjoy theirs very much. One of them also carries his on SWAT call outs. I know the lower serial numbers are typically not to the quality of the higher (newer) guns.

It looked pretty right to me when I was shown one in Stainless!.... I liked it so much I bought it....after shooting it... I liked it so much I bought another when I found it.. They are both GREAT shooters!

They came w/ 3, 8 round magazines. Polished ramp and barrel throat. Trigger is about 4#. Three dot night sights. I switched the grips, I like the black on black, cammo on stainless. The grip safety is a style similer to STI. No "manhole". No "Revolution". They are not shown on Sig website, they are not in catologue.. I called Sig...yes they made them...no they could not say why..or how many... no they won't be making them production pieces..

Agreed. There's a couple of guys here that have one as you can see. Not even Sig knows anything about them. (a few have contacted SIG). If you can, I'd grab it, they're definitely some sort of limited run(so far). BTW I have a SIG GSR Compact and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Notice absence of "Sig" or "Revolution" or anything...also no "manhole cover" on rear of slide. Memory bumb grip safety, not Caspian style as in other 1911's offered by Sig. Woudn't you all agree though, The cammo looks better on the stainless finish?

Nice looking guns, but I really don't understand putting a rail on a commander length gun. I presume you'd buy it for carry, and the rail is more weight and more chance to snag. I also must be in the minority, but I like the Caspian style grip safety better.

Funny, but I agree with you about the rail...I totally dismissed idea of purchase when it was first shown to me.. My exact word were...."yeah...its nice , but I'm not into rail guns".. I do like "Custom" pistols, so I took a second look. I like the bump grip safety, all my 1911's have similer.. and I like consistant grip. The rail is mostly just about heft for me.. these are house guns.. not carry for me personally, so a light might be considered by some.
I have two "special" Kimber CDP's, and also a CZ PCR that I use as carry.
The Sigs are both stainless slide and frame (even the Nitron one) and both weigh in at 39 oz. w/ empty mag. Ok for duty pistols, but too heavy for concealed carry. I guess its the quality of detail, trigger and accuracy that I like with these. Its nice having something special.

Onegood,
Do you know if the railed Carry Sigs have the same trigger as the factory GSR's or did they come with a trigger job? I don't remember if you have any factory GSR's for comparison. I love the memory bump GS too. Bought an Ed Brown for my GSR Compact but it doesn't fit.

I'd try an STI grip safety w/ memory bump...maybe you can call Sig and ask?
Try to speak w/ JIM...don't know his last name...but he is one of there Custom guru's (he is not in Customer Service)

I can't compare to other Sigs..but I have a few..VERY good 1911's..these Triggers are GREAT.. not soft...prob easy 4#, not less...but ZERO creep or play..you cannot feel the break coming at all! I'm comparing to other 1911's of my experiance, I think these are something special..Sig trying to get it right... IMO.. well done! (Can you tell they are becoming my favorites, I took the Nitron to the range Sunday...with no other pistols!)

I just realized you need one for a Compact...might try Kimber, for that bump safety, they offer some compact frames

The Ed Brown safety was for an Officer's ( due to the compact grip) The problem was the distance from the pivot pin to the back end of the beavertail was different. When I installed it there was a giant gap between the frame behind the thumb safety and the GS. Dunno. I'll just have to buy another 1911 so I can use my extra GS

Supergus, I'm proud to know you! Handed a lemon, you make lemonade!
Def. like the way you think.....ok....Call Ed Brown...tell them you're gonna need a frame to fit your grip safety......by this time next year...NEW PISTOL!

i just bought one on gunbroker lightly used for $800!!!!
im SO stoked i know you guys said a rail on a commander defeats the purpose of carry and i agree. BUT for me its perfect because i have sold ALL my guns to help out with my mother inlaws cancer... so to me... this is the perfect balance if you are to have only one gun pistol. rail for the light at home. and slightly smaller for carry even better... i think im going to have it bobtailed... maybe kote the frame OD green what do you guys think?

Heads up; sales or mention of them on here is a no-no.
