Sig Tradition Reverse Two Tone




Just picked it up today. I traded my Kimber Pro TLE II. Great decision. The Sig was flawless in 160 Rounds. Shot like a dream. This is mt fourth and favorite 1911 to date. I liked the Kimber - but it was finicky with some ammo - even 230 gr. Blazer Brass. The Sig - brand new - out of the box and lubed - was perfect

After doing lots of research, looking at several guns, and trying out the few that I could, I also bought a Sig Sauer Traditional Reverse 2-tone. I've yet to shoot it but the fit, finish, and trigger seem very good for a production gun. I'll provide pics later.

Thanks. Shot it yesterday and was quite pleased. At 50 ft., I was tearing a ragged hole out of each of my targets. What amazed me was the recoil, which seemed to be less than that of my Glock 17. I'm ready to buy another Sig once I save up another $925.

Thanks for having my back with pictures. This is my third Sig. I also have a 238 & a 239. All have been perfect.

Congrats!
I went into the LGS for a TLE II and walked out with the Sig Traditional Reverse. Comparing side by side, IMO, the Sig has a better trigger and better sights, and was near $100 less than the Kimber.

Going to a gun show this Friday myself. I like the reverse and regular two tone models and they are currently at the top of my list.

Anyone had experience shooting 200gr SWCs in it? I'm thinking of getting this model and that's primarily what I will shoot in it.

The two-tone looks great! I wish Sig offered this in its fastback/round butt frame.

I like mine. I've got Colts and DW and my carry 1911 is my Sig Traditional.

Mine is the reverse two tone - my slide is SS and frame is black.

Though I've been having some issues with the Hornaday Critical Duty (LE) not feeding well. (Thinking an 18 or 20 lb spring might fix that.)

If the OP wants to swap parts one of us could have a black one and the other a SS.
