Sig 1911 Carry Fastback Nightmare!




Unfortunately for my wallet, I just saw this on Sig's website:

http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProdu...nightmare.aspx



Looks like they mistakenly cropped out the front sight in the pic (it is Sig's website after all). THEY FIXED IT.

Either way, I wonder when this will hit the shelves. I am a little pissed that they have this as well, but I will keep my boring regular Carry Skorp:

Sweet looking gun!

I REALLY don't need another 1911 (or any guns) at the moment that that is very tempting!

Maybe the front sight is a option?

Its a nightmare to shoot with out a front sight.

I don't know why that barrel looks longer than 4.2 though.

there is a carry version and a 5" version. the pics in this thread are the 5" version that was announced first. the carry version appears on sig's website and is indeed missing the front sight. fwiw, i am very interested in the carry version.

We are both on the same page Teefus. The Carry is what interests me. Also when 'dey start hitting da sto's.

Got Nightmares?

I was at the 2012 Shot Show last week...The Nightmare, especially the Carry version, is a beautiful gun, it is very tight (in a good way) Stainless frame, and proportioned very well with the round butt. Lots of well thought out details. I was definitely drooling a bit. I also handled the P210 for the first time and needed an extra large drool trough. I'm probably gonna order the carry version in a few weeks. The fit and finishes were all there, I'm pretty sure Sig got it right on this one.

I just clicked my link, and noticed that they added front sights.

I hope I did't shame them into fixing the picture.

Looks even nicer now. And thanks Clint for reinforcing my fears....

I don't know of any plans of them producing a .357 Sig 1911 at this time. A 9 and a .40, yes.

But then again, they could be?

Definitely a .357Sig version

According to their website - http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProdu...nightmare.aspx

Item Number 1911FCA-45-NMR, 1911FCA-357-NMR
Caliber 45 ACP, 357 SIG

I'll be going with the .45, but I'm sure a lot of you will be loving the .357!

Interesting. Does anyone else have a .357 Sig 1911 in current production.

Do you 1911 old-timers think that would be very reliable due to the bottleneck?

Or, do you think this might be a whole 'nother problem with mags and feeding issues?

If anything, I think a bottle neck would aid in feeding. There aren't enough sources o .357 Sig 1911's for me to say anything.

It will be cool if they pull it off.

Coonan has been making them for a while, but its not a traditional 1911.
