Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Sig Sauer 1911's.....

Anyone have one? The reviews are favorable.

I love the 1911 platform (I have 2 Springfield Armory 1911's), and love the performance of the Sig Sauer pistols we have. Both have proven to be reliable enough, for daily carry.

Just for the heck of it, I was perusing 1911's today, and found this...... What a beautiful 1911! I want one.

I'm off to find youtube videos of reviews of them, and stuff.

I have one. Haven't shot it enough to give much useful feedback. It is one very well made pistol and the trigger pull is smooth as glass.

Thank you. Any info is useful though. Do you have this specific model?

I'm pretty sure this will cost me more than my SA 'Loaded' model did ($800, 10-11 years ago).

It's an all black Tacops model with tritium sights, the beveled type of magwell to speed reloading, adjustable trigger. I got it from a former coworker who has an FFL and took it in on trade for a fraction of the original price, new and unfired. Think it cost me maybe $650 with original hard case and 4 mags.

I will only buy SIG 1911 mags. I have had real good luck with them and the price is not bad for a great mag.

That's a nice looking Sig 1911 Pogo! I'm curious about the flat trigger. After seeing your pic, I remembered Sig's have the external extractor, and yours has a rail. I'm kind of a 1911 'purist' (aka, the way JMB designed them).

While I highly doubt I'll ever own a 1911 with a rail, can anyone enlighten me on the Pros & Cons of Internal and External Extractors?

From what I've read, JMB wanted the external extractor on the 1911, but the Army didn't. Which is why the Hi-Power wound up with an external extractor. The Hi-Power is apparently the crowning jewel of what JMB wanted a semi-auto pistol to be.

I did not know that. Thank you.

I have three original style 1911s. Two Colts and a WWII A1 made by Remington Rand.
