    sg they are sig arms first stab at the 1911 market ,they make a fine gun ,and the ones i have shot were mighy nice ,and always pricey

    but the more i get into the 1911's the more i will stay 70 series ,single stack non plastic ,internal extractors ,all old shool stuff

    I don't like anything with an external extractor.

    JMB had the better idea.

  5. Now y'all gotta bear with JMB...John Browning?...

    SG, remove your hat and repeat after me.

    " John MOSES Browning". :)

    He did design the external extractor in the Hi-Power so it really can't be all bad. ( but it just ain't natural on a 1911)

    Sig .45 same-same?????
    Now the Sig 1911.....ain`t the same

    Always the complainers of the 1911 design and caliber, but for some reason......everybody is copying it and WHAT`S THAT?????
    That nasty ole fat slow 230grain bullet that kain`t hardly get out of the barrel or go through 27 phone books with killing power after. GO FIGURE?????

    Having only 8 rounds is the killer for me. I like SIG's.

    I'm happy with seven big ones.....

    If I can't take him out with the first, or, for insurance, if necessary, the second, I don't need to have a weapon or shoot!

    Now ifn a person really had to have more than 8 rounds they make a looong high capacity ,I have seen single stack 1911 30 rounder

    I myself don’t like the spray and pray method , this is the beauty of the 1911 you hit what you aim at ,if it where any other weapon ,I would want more than 8 rounds too

    I have an extra book about JMB I would be happy to send you. It is a damn good book that tells the extraordinary story of all the guns he invented and his life story.

    If you want it let me know.
