Ultra questions




I am seriously considering picking up the ultra compact this week. I have seen most of the posts here and they sound like they are reliable ( one of my concerns Wit the smaller barrel).

I haven't been able to find any videos on YouTube except for a short one firing one mag.

My questions

Has any one with one fired over 500 rounds, if so how did it go?

Are the grips standard officer size?

Thanks

Well over 800 rounds, not any problems. Both reloads and brand. FMJ and hollow point.

I don't own one, but I don't recall seeing any threads on here that point to issues. In fact, the general consensus seems to be that Sig is one of the few 1911 makers that actually got it right with the ultra-compact sized guns.

I didn't see any either but with a compact not a lot shoot hundreds so I was hoping to hear from someone who had. I think I'll take the leap, sounds like they have good customer service so if all else failed I'll let them take care of it.

The other concern I had was with sig having so many models of 1911's what are the chances of an extreme ultra compact?

Looks great!, nice holster. I am looking at the two tone model. They want 924 plus tax, I think that's about right because I haven't seen them any where else. Hopefully they still have it. Gonna check after work today.

Something similar to VM II?

I called Milt Sparks today. Seems they do not have the gun mold for the Ultra Nitron. Does anyone have recommendation for a holster of similar quality and characteristics?

If it shoots as good as it looks and feels, I will be.

Holster

Hi Fitz USMC, I have an Ultra I carry in a Gould and Goodrich model 800 and it's an excellent high quality holster. www.gouldusa.com

Thank you for your service to our country!
