    I’m a 1911, as long as it’s NOT American made. Give it to the Swiss/Germans at Sig, taking a classic American handgun, and made it perfect. Thanx SigArms!

    I have a Sig 1911 Nightmare full size. The gun fits very nice in my hand, feels and looks good, and is accurate as hell. However, I’ve been to the range 4 times, have put about 600 rounds through it…. The first time out of the box was terrible. I was shooting american eagle 230gr FMJ and WWB 230gr FMJ. Out of the first 100rds, had about 10-12 jams. Mostly FTF (actually failure to return to battery). I’ve heard about break-in periods for 1911’s, but this was ridiculous. Second time out had probably 6-8 of the same issues. 3rd and fourth time out, got through about 150rds before it started having issues (failure to return to battery). One thing I noticed, it gets very dirty. Not sure if its the ammo (mainly using WWB and AE, and various JHP – Hornady, Gold Dot, Hydra Shock, etc). I think the WWB runs very dirty. Hoping the next time out I have no issues. The gun feels great, very accurate, but reliability is an issue, and lastly, I’m actually not a big fan of the sights.

    This is a sweet 1911. I’ve owned mine for over 6 months now and have about 800+ rounds through it.
    Don’t hesitate to purchase one of these! I’d buy mine all over again without any hesitation whatsoever.
    I’ve put 185 grain through it, 230 grain through it. Lead, copper jacketed and hollow points without a single failure.
    Purchased 8 round hybrid magazines from TopGunSupply for $19 each and they don’t have the rubber at the bottom of the mag… which combined with the bob-tail means it doesn’t print under your clothing.
    You can’t go wrong with this pistol. It’s accurate as hell and extremely fun to shoot.
    Having the 4.2″ barrel makes it a great concealed carry as well. I have 3 different holsters (depends on what I’m wearing) and it’s weight is not a problem for daily carry.
    I highly recommend this pistol – you simply cannot go wrong buying it.

    tomrkba: Sounds like a story there! What quality control issues have you seen with Sig lately?

    I thought “Nightmare” referred to SIG’s QC 😉
