Sig LAPD SWAT 1911 Tac Ops

Check this out....,LAPD SWAT has an instagram account. Whoever runs it put up this pic, which I screen shotted...and said they are now having their guns built custom by Sig....said it was a Tac Ops 1911....looks like it has a Heinie rear....people started commenting and whoever maintains the Instagram account deletes the post....Iím thinking since this week is the Shot Show Sig might be announcing it? So it looks like Kimber lost the account? Anybody got any info?

Probably an excellent gun.

However, I'd be a little embarrassed by owning something called Tac Ops.

So if anyone asked I'd just say it was a Sig.

I'm no commando.

I too liked that picture on IG. I didn’t pay it much mind other than the LAPD SWAT logo laser engraved on top the slide and LAPD marking below the ejection port.

I didn’t think it was a replacement for their Kimber’s. However, if it is I doubt LAPD brass or the city would sign off on allowing SIG to sell the guns to the general public with those markings. I remember the issue they took up with Kimber over their SIS series of pistols.

Does LAPD have a copywrite on their name? Does SIG produce custom firearms?

Unless of course, the organization you worked for was Tac Ops.

jtq------------ You're totally right! If I WAS Tac Ops I'd be fine with it.

I do carry a Sig myself. And I'd be okay with owning one called Skinny Landlord Defender.

There’s also a photo on their IG account from August that shows a special run Colt railgun that Colt sold to the team for their 50th anniversary. Could be something like that.

TacOps is a set with 4 extended mags and a magwell grip. At least on the P-series.

The name TACOPS is just nomenclature... a name...
Like Commander, or Wilson Combat, or Chief's Special...

Looks like it has a flat trigger which is not a stock item for a tacops either.

My STX says that it was built in their custom shop and is smoother and tighter than just about any sig i’ve Handled, I bought it from their pro shop in New Hampshire and did handle a bunch of them there (they were probably happy to see me leave) . Now does that mean that they have gunsmiths sit and custom fit every part like SACS ? Probably not, but i’d Think that they do at least spend some time checking and optimizing the fits on the assembled bits and pieces, maybe just pulling parts out of the bin until it seems to fit right. As a side note i’ll add that I did send my 9mm RO to SACS for acurrizing where they added a new “match” barrel, bushing and slide stop, it came back with spring in the barrel which I clearanced the bushing a bit to fix and the slide stop was obviously a mim part with a huge nasty parting line that required I polish it down to work smoothly, all for $400, thanks... custom fit ? Meh ! It is accurate though!

Now with that said i’ll add that on my stx I fitted a much tighter briley spherical barrel bushing with about .001in clearance on the barrel and pretty much fitted to about a line to line on the slide. It is way more accurate than I am and the gun simply is easy to be accurate with, everyone i’ve let shoot it has done very well. Now do they take custom build orders like Sacs does ? Probably not, so what is custom?

There is mim parts in my stx but they are high quality and very nicely fit, so what is custom ?

I have nothing but great things to say about my TTT but my LAPD nephew says many 1911's are authorized by his department.

Welcome to the forum!
Congrats on the 1911 TACOPS.

Yes. All the .45ACP and .357SIG TACOPS 1911s are on the discontinued list for 2018.
The TACOPS 10mm isn't on the discontinued list but I don't think they are going to continue to make it either.

I have the .45ACP and the 10mm TACOPS, both with the SIG profile slide. Really enjoy them so far.

While 1911s are apparently authorized by LAPD, my understanding is that the vast majority of LAPD personnel running a .45 ACP chambered pistol are choosing the Glock G21.

Best, Jon

Currently, LAPD authorizes almost all models offered by Colt, Springfield and Kimber. Soon, STI 1911 and 2011, as well as Wilson Combat, Les Baer and Nighthawk Custom will be approved.

Originally, anyone wanting to carry a 1911 used to have to shoot "Expert" (380+ out of 400 points) in the Dept's bonus course. Now, a score of 365 or better will suffice. Then, you have to go to their 3-day 1911 school. Upon completion of the school, you are then authorized to deploy a Dept-approved 1911 for duty.
