Thanks, will have to take a new picture though. Have added a Sig 1911 to the mix. Like I said, they are additive. Now if I just could come up with some money for a P228 and a P210 and a P245, and a .... oh I did mention they were additive, didn't I?

I think you will find that guys that buy Sigs are lifers with the brand. I truly think the P series Sigs are the finest production gun you can buy. They are worth their price.

Bingo!

Ignore my signature..The majority are Glocks and 1911's...I love them both.

Combat? All I need is my SIG P226...Don't need any more. Any other SIG I get besides my SIG 1911 will be just for the love of guns as my passion.

LOL look at my previous post. Same time post. Funny...Anyways yeah, my SIG 1911 has been my most reliable 1911 yet. 600 flawless rounds of everything. Even reputable bad JHP's that are flat up front. That thing inhales anything I give it through the the mag

I also have a SIG 1911.

I was at the LGS and asked what they had new. They brought out this SIG 1911 TACOPS I think it is.

Has the funky laser that is not worth throwing away. I was looking for a steel frame gun and this one was steel.

It was my first 1911 since my Series 70 Gold Cup.

I has not had a failure. I have only run hardball through it but I am very pleased with the gun. Can't get the recoil spring in backwards either

Agreed ^^ it eats anything though. Seriously. Funny about the spring not being able to go in backwards. Amen.

Speaking of 70 Series... -___- look at my thread about mine. It's on the semi auto front page.

I had quite a problem with that.

I bought the SIG and then about a week later, I am over at the same LGS and they must know I had a zero balance on my card

I saw this nice looking Smith and Wesson 1911 and asked to see it.

It happened to be a 1911E. So. . .I bought it.

Took it home and field stripped it to get ready to go to the range.

I noticed the recoil spring had quite a bit of resistance coming off and looked at the manual and it said the open end of the recoil spring goes on the guide rod first. So that is what I did.

Went to the range and the gun just would not run. I go home and call a service center in California and told them what was going on.

I asked them about the recoil spring because I am thinking the resistance of the closed end being forward, the slide was slowing down and the gun would not cycle.

I asked them about that and they said the manual is wrong. . .the recoil spring goes on with the closed end toward the trigger. I did that and have not had a failure since.

Funny thing though. . . one of the guys I see at the range a lot has the very same model gun and I asked him how his runs. He trotted out a whole bunch of recoil springs trying to find one that would enable the gun to run.

He had not been able to get one magazine to run completely through the gun without a stoppage.

I asked him if he cleaned the gun before he shot it the first time and he said yes.

I asked him which way he installed the recoil spring.

"Like the manual says" was his reply.

He had the gun there and we turned the spring around and he hasn't had a failure since either.

Did I mention he has a supply of recoil springs

I now have had that drilled into my brain, but I do like the way SIG designed theirs.

Live and learn.
