    Well I bought this fella about a week ago, haven't gotten a chance to shoot it though. I've been busy with physical therapy for my arm up until this afternoon when I had a chance to get it out. Approx 200 rounds of a mix of Fiocchi, and Winchester white box FMJ ammo and probably 2 mags of golden sabre, two malfunctions (failing to feed) in the first magazine. After that no issues at all. First three magazines all in the head at 20yards. After that I'll admit I started having trouble keeping it steady as it was getting hard to hold my arm up and the pain was getting bad again and every 5th or 6th round went outside the poor targets head. Girlfriend shot a good bit of the ammo out of it, really I was just wanting to make sure it worked well.

    So I will say the accuracy is very good, fit/finish (cept for that damned external extractor) is great, like the sights, of course I'm a Novak fan in general. All three Sig mags worked well, as did the mecgars and wilsons. I've heard of people having issues with the actual factory mags but none here, and no issues with the ambi safety as I've seen mentioned about the Sigs. Action was smooth, not extremely loose like some of the other guns

    Fits in a regular SERPA holster, overall I'd say it was a great buy. This is the first Sig gun I've owned, much less a Sig 1911 so it's a good experience with the brand.

    Only thing I'll say, and this could just be some kinda weird issue I caused, but taking the grips off one screw would just not come off, ended up stripping out. Upon looking closely at it, the allen key hole in the head (is that right? Hole?) was much shallower than any of the others. Got it out and replaced it, gunner grips should be here soon so I'll have to take it apart one more time.

    Just under 1K, great gun, and especially a great gun for the money. Now off to take my muscle relaxers and pain killers. :) I don't remember shooting hurting so much. Damn arm

    The TACOP Sig are a nice choice when choosing from the SIG 1911 lineup. I almost picked up one of the non-railed TAC PAC packages last year. Wish I had .... :chargrined:
    The rail to slide on these models is very smooth .....

    Nice choice.

    Nice write-up. I think the Tac-ops is almost the same as the Scorpion, which I picked up about a month ago and am very happy with. Congrats on the new 1911.

    BTW is your guide rod 1 or 2 piece?
