I don't care for Sig's treatment of the slide contours, but it certainly does make them instantly recognizable as a Sig product and differentiates them from all the other 1911 clones. No one can fault the quality of their products, but I guess I lean more towards the traditionalist camp.

But...since they offer a LE discount and simplify the process by selling direct to you...I'd overlook the percieved (by me ;)) cosmetic shortcommings, as I've heard nothing but favorable reports on these pistols. Sounds like a win/win.

By the way, Mountian Bill, nice Esmeralda's on that pistol.

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.
Sounds like that removes the only stumbling block.

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.
For the most part, I agree. The 1911 market is a very competitive one and the various makers must provide a good product to keep their portion of the market share. I would venture to say the vast majority of 1911s we have to choose from today are better than those that Colt produced during the '70's and '80's when they were nearly the only game in town.

The offerings I've shot and examined from SA, S&W, Para-Ord, Kimber,and others...and yes, even Colt...over the last 10 years have, to a gun, showed better fit, smoother function, better accuracy, and greater reliability than anything we were able to buy off-the-shelf back in those early days of "combat shooting". In fact, it was the lack of all those attributes in the Colts of the day, that lead to the rise of so many of the famous pistolsmiths we take for granted today.

Grab one of those Sigs as soon as they become available Shudy, give it a good break-in, and test it thoroughly with the ammo and magazines you will use before relying on it for anything serious...then enjoy another finely made 1911. And don't forget to keep us updated with pics...and a review...more pics...and a range test...did I mention we'd like some pics...
