    This is from the Sig web site. I won't get my hands on mine until Thursday afternoon. And after changing the pic, here it is.

    Thanks folks. Now I just need to get some leather for it. I'm not sure if anyone makes holsters especially for the Sig, or if most holsters just use a 1911 format and say, "it'll fit". Id be tickled to hear some first hand experience.

    Any 1911 style holster will work but be sure it has a deep sight channel.

    Waiting for a range report. :)

    :D Well, the pistol should be here Thursday afternoon. There's 500 rounds waiting on the bench. I'm off work Fri and Sat....... :rolleyes: ... range report should be posted by afternoon Sat. As old as I am, waiting hasn't become any easier. :(

    20 mph wind, and rain....... not gonna shoot today, but tomorrow should be a good range day. Pistol got here yesterday. Initial looksee...... fit and finish are excellent. The grip-safety has a raised radius against the shooters' hand, instead of a lower "bump". Feels different, but not at all uncomfortable. It came apart like a normal 1911, no special tools needed. Components were snug, but not overly tight. Slide to frame fit is very good. Visual evidence of contact along slide/rails indicate about 90% contact, and very smooth. Book says trigger pull is 4.5 - 5.5 pounds.... can't measure it accurately, but after a few hundred pulls with a snap cap in place, I'm ok with it. Here's a pic taken this morning, and I'll have a range report tomorrow.

    It's amazing. Your pic looks identical to the one you posted from the Sig site.

    yep, that's the one. I can't afford to buy a Sig to photograph for every site I visit.
