Looking at this Sig model as a target gun.

I would appreciate any comments on its performance, accuracy and reliablity? I like the Nitron version. Thanks in advance.

I bought one for my father in law. He loves it.

All the Sig full size 1911's are built the same with the same basic parts. They seem to be pretty reliable and accurate. The gun will do its part if you do yours.

I keep asking my father in law to let me 2 tone his and do a full trigger job on it but he won't let me. He says "If it ain't broke, don't fix it. "

FYI, there is a new Tradional Target model that is 2 tone with an ambi safety, if you are into that sort of thing.

I've owned two, and loved them both. Accurate, reliable, and to me, very attractive firearms. Both ate anything I fed them, from whatever magazines they happened to be dining from. I did have to install a new trigger and smooth out the memory bump on the grip safety in my second one to overcome a bit of sloppy fitting, but now it feels wonderful.

I have a SS gun. I had to put a sear spring in mine. I had a good Gunsmith do that and stone the action parts. It has a great trigger in it and is more accurate than me. On a good day I can hold a sub 2" group at 25 yds and I'm no Bullseye shooter. He also worked on a SA Loaded I have. I ask him how the Sig compares to the SA. There is little difference in the Sig or and 1K 1911. Most have forged slides, which Sig does inhouse and machines theirs. Most have cast or forged frames, Sigs are forged. Drilling the holes and fitting the parts are probably the most critical areas. The small parts are shared by most of the makers. SAs are all forged in Brazil and machined and finished in Brazil or here. The Sig is a great gun for the price point.

I just purchased my first 1911 the Sig Sauer 1911-45-B-TGT. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but hopefully this weekend - IF I can locate some ammo for it. I'm really looking forward to it. I really wanted a Colt but they are not compliant in MASS. I'm hoping the Sig will be a fine choice. My local gun shop owner highly recommended it.
