Sig Revolution Series 1911




Does anybody own one???? How would you compare the fit & quality of these to the mainline/big name brands???? What do you like/dislike about it, if any???

Thanks for any replies!

Sig's make's great gun's,but IMHO are way overpriced... Especaily when compared to similar pistols from other Companys...
Now thats just my opinion and they are like you know what !!!!!!!! Everybody has one......

Depends on what you mean by Revolution. The Sig 1911 started out as the GSR 1911, which was a premium quality pistol built by Sig almost completely of out sourced parts; Caspian Frame and Slide, EGW, McCormick etc. Then the name changed for a short while to Revolution Series, which was about the time Sig started making most stuff in house, though I believe some of the small parts are outsourced. Now they are just called Sig 1911's.

I have a full size Sig 1911. Its great shoots better than any other 1911 I have ever shot, though I have mostly shot pistols comparable in price such as the SA TRP and Loaded's, a bunch of Kimbers and a few Colts. The fit and finish are excellent and customer service is top notch. There are a mix of opinions on this forum about the Sig but I'll put mine up against any of those other guns. Sig also offers a nice LE discount if that applies to you.

dj,

In the Budsgunshop website, its one of those out of stock models selling for around $780ish, not their expensive models. From the picture, I can't tell if its dark/blue or black.

I can't be more specific as I am not familiar with Sigs, sorry.

dj,

I went back and found some details. The picture says " XO " and the photoshot is the RIGHT side of the gun.

Its at the bottom of Page 2 of Budsgunshop web site. Product number is " 19GS0013 " and Bud's item number is " 50939 ". Am I making sense, or vague as ever???

I have a GSR 1911 Revolution

stainless, full-sized; with alumigrips.




It isn't the least or most expensive 1911 and to some it wouldn't pass the 1911 purity test (due to the external extractor); it also manages to have a decidedly SIG look to it, especially with the top of the slide...If I could carry this pistol at work I would.

Ok, This may or may not help you. The Xo is the entry level Sig 1911. Its a newer model, not really a revolution. It has a different, I THINK less expensive, finish than the Nitron Models. No night sights, G-10 style grips. They generally are 200 or so less than a Nitron (Nitron is Sig's Tenifer/Melonite). I don't think that is all that great of a price.

However, I see you are in CA and I am pretty sure that its a CA compliant gun. Look around a bit, you may find one a bit cheaper or might find a Nitron with night sights and wood grips for about that price. Given CA's rules that might be a good price out there. Good Luck.

I have the all SS compact/carry (commander slide/officer's frame). It is very nicely finished, with very good parts. My only complaint would be the STYLE of grip safety (I don't like those with that long nose down the middle), and am still a little puzzled by the lack of a full length guide rod!?
I have owned most of the major production 1911s, plus a few 'oddballs', and would rank my Sig somewhat better than Colt and maybe just shy of a Kimber.
Yes, they do seem to be overpriced. They are probably a $750-$850 pistol, but I have seen a few good deals on those XO 'base' models.

Greetings,

I have one. I replaced the night sights by fiber optics.

If I shoot FMJ I have no problem.
If I shoot any self-defense commercial round I have no problem.

If I shoot hard cast lead, the shoulder of the bullet comes in contact with the rifling and the slide does not go into battery. For that not to happen, I need to set the shoulder flush with the case and have a very reduced OAL. This is the only 45ACP that I have that kind of issue.

Don't get me wrong. I like the gun. There is no tool mark, nowhere I had any drag friction. The fit is perfect.

Thank you
