    Keep the updates coming, I'm really liking your SIG.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but they don't make mags for the Sig 1911. I'm starting to notice that it's a hard gun to get after market accessories for.

    Cheers

    That's interesting. Does anyone know what is different between the SIG's mag and a standard 1911's?

    It might be a case of me not knowing what I'm talking about... I'm going to try these mags

    I didn't realize that most people view the mags as the weakest link in the 1911 chain. I"ll do the upgrade and see what happens. I don't think there's a difference between the Sig 1911 mags and others.

    Cheers

    Can't go wrong with Wilson combat mags. I change out all factory mags with Wilson combat mags. It makes a lot of the problems go away. Also, on my Sig 1911 RCS that I was having problems with I figured out how to fix it; I sold it. No more problems

    yeah, your issues were pretty chronic - I'm wondering what your wording was on the ad for the sale!! :0

    I wouldn't say at all that I'm dissatisfied with mine. Perhaps I've drunk too much of the 1911 Kool-Aid and expect a flawless, out of the box gun for ever and ever amen. I've not had a single FTF or FTE so all things considered, no show stoppers as yet.

    I'm sure the wilson mags are nice. I use mec-gars because I like the metal followers, the finish, and the price. They are made in Italy and came recommended by Fluffy, and have I've had no problems with any of them so far.

    I'm really rooting for the SIGs, but Jaime's experience has me worried.

    It stressed me out as well, especially as I'd already paid for mine and was waiting delivery. So far, I'm happy with what I've got. If I get a chance to go out to the range again today I'll post of pics of the target (warning, I'm a noob at handguns...).

    I attended a SIG ARMS demo a few weeks ago and was a little dissapointed that although they had just about their whole line up of duty pistols their 1911 was absent. I carried a 229 for four years when I was a cop and although it was a little small for me I never had any issues with reliability or accuracy.

    I did get my hands on their little 1911 style .380. It reminds me of a colt mustang or maverick, for a mouse gun it was very accurate and a pleasing to shoot. Of course most anything is pleasing to shoot when your not paying for ammo.

    Also, the rep brought one of their 516s (new piston driven AR type) and we had a chance to abuse it some. We probably fired 300 rds through it non stop with no issues. At the end of the session the rep had found about 15 old 556 rounds that had been laying on the range so long the casings had turned black and stated that he would "prove the reliability of the weapon by firing those rounds through it". I mentioned that seemed like more of a test of the reliability of the ammo and recomended throwing the weapon into the river behind the range as a test of its reliability. The rep handed me the rifle and told me where the boat ramp was, so I was more than happy to oblige.

    I chunked the rifle into the river, optics and all and let it soak for a second. Just to be thorough I pushed it down into the mud and the fished it out. I carrier the rifle back to the rep he slapped the mag in and put as many rounds through it that would fire with no mechanical stoppages. The crappy little sig reflex sight didnt hold up, but it was expected.

    I had a Sig P220R Carry and a Sig P229SAS. I sold both of these hand guns. The reason I sold them is the P220R Carry had a rail and that didn't make sense to me as a good carry benefit. The P229SAS was nice, however I didn't like the DAK and decided to sell it and replace it with a newer one the that is DA/SA. I may or may not do that now that I have a Kimber 1911 carry, which I like a lot. Also, have a Sig P6 that I love and will never sell; this one is fun and accurate to shoot. I like Sigs and will purchase more of their hand guns in the future.
