Sig 1911

I'd like to purchase a Sig 1911 just to add to my collection of various 1911 manufacturers. My only experience with Sig is the M17. This would not be for carry and only occasional target shooting so adjustable sights are optional but full size is mandatory and a rail is not preferred. I am considering the basic stainless without rail. Is this a decent model? Any other recommendations? Thanks!

I own 4. 2 TTT's and 2 black nitrons. Not letting any of them go so yes, they are that good.

My 1st Sig 1911 was (and I still have it) a GSR (Granite State Rail) a full sized stainless railed gun. With an external extractor it's not a "true" 1911 design; and with the rounded top slide like other Sig Pistols it is a little different but it is a great shooting gun.

With the exception of a couple guns not in the photo here is my Sig Sauer Family Portrait:



Missing from the picture are a German BUNDESGRENZSCHUTZ (Federal Republic Border Guards) P-210-4, a P6 (German Police P225), P220 .38 Super, P220 .45 ACP, P320 (full size), and a P365.

Go for it. I carried a P226 on duty and off for years and P230 and P290 as back-ups. Now that I am a civilian and able to carry what I want, I carry a Sig 1911 3.3" Nitron. It has all the handling characteristics one seeks in a 1911 coupled with Sig quality and reliability.

OP does not plan to carry but for anyone reading who is, there is one one negative: Be prepared to do some work finding a holster. The P series slide makes it incompatible with most generic 1911 holsters.

I have multiple high end 1911's and 1 Sig 1911. The Sig has been shot much more than any of the others. IMHO Sig makes the best production 1911 (perhaps Dan Wesson).

I get my holsters from Paul at Warbird Leather. He's on this website as Colt Hammerless.

You need handle and shoot one or two if possible. In this day and age of beavertail grip safeties the Sig part is more akin to the GI A1 grip safety than any of the modern beavertails. If you like the A1 grips safety you’ll like the Sig.

My first pistol of any kind was a present from my son's. Sig We The People 1911. It's an absolute joy to shoot. Very comfortable in my hand and way more accurate than I will ever be. I have well over two thousand rounds through it and honestly I never had one failure of any kind. Spoiled me.

My only Sig 1911 is an STX which has a Sig Custom Shop label and is basically an upscale TTT, it’s all stainless, no rail and one of the best adjustable rear sights I’ve experienced. I’m very happy with this gun and I tend to shoot it as well as I am Capable, it ain’t Going anywhere ! Extremely happy with it. I would add that it Easily shoots as well &accurately As my p210.

My Nightmare Fastback 5” is a great shooter. It is very accurate and has converted several of my family members to 1911 style pistols.

I too recommend the STX. Mine shoots very well even after way over ten thousand rounds.

I have two Sig 1911's and granted they are of the more expensive ones: Stainless Super Target and Max Michel models but they both have been incredible. No malfunctions of any kind including handloaded JHP's. Super accurate and a joy to shoot. A friend a bullseye match compared the Super Target to his Les Baer.
