Thanks for the advice. I dont really like railed pistols but I am thinking about waiting for the traditional Sig 1911 to come out later this spring. I think for the money they should be on par with Kimber, Springfield, and Colt. You still get all the bells and whistles with the Sig for the same amount of money as the other brands I mentioned. I just havent gotten to shoot one yet and I hope I can find someone that has one that I can shoot. The price is good for individual officer price and they sell directly to law enforcement which is a plus for me. Ill let you know when i am able to get one. Thanks again!

I dont want to knock some of the other 1911s but for some reason the S&W doesnt appeal to me. Smiths are fine products but I just dont want one of their semi autos. I like springfields but I dont like their commander size pistols. Im not too big of a fan with Kimbers either. I probably would like the Smith if I shot one but there are so many 1911s. One of the major factors for me for the Sig is cost. I can order directly through Sig and not worry about tax, shipping, transfer fee, and background check fee. Not all companies will let law enforcement order directly and it save me more money. I guess im picky. lol

Ill admit the slide contours are my least favorite thing about the Sig and they do take some getting used to. However Sig has come out with 5 new 1911s called the traditional series that are pure 1911. They are supposed to be out later this spring thats the one I am waiting for. Its really cheaper for me to buy a Sig 1911 than it is most others. I dont think a person can go wrong with any of the major brands of 1911s that are available its just up to personal choice which you choose.

Roe,

Interesting information on the history of the 1911 and why we have as many as we do have available. There is something about owning a Colt though that I like. Whats funny is though Colt didnt make a superior product in the 70s and 80s everyone still wanted one. Even today nothing seems to say 1911 like a Colt. I will post pics as soon as I get one and give the details.
