    I got the opportunity to meet Max a couple years ago and he's a very pleasant individual to talk to.
    Sig should make a 1911 in their Mastershop, home of the x5 and x6 pistols.

    Seriously,I read the spec sheet on the pistol and 1713.00 MSRP FOR A SIG !!!!!! :eek:
    Maybe one of the X series pistols for that range,but seriously,1.7 k for a SIG? :der:

    Considering the QC problems that SIG has been having over the past couple of years,I'd get a Les Baer UTC or TRS LONGGGGG before I'd even consider a SIG for over a grand.

    Well, it does have a semi flat trigger on it, so I kind of like it.

    But for that price, I'll pass.

    I bought the max 1911. The slide was not smooth and the trigger was awful. I had to rack the slide for a couple of weeks to get the slide smooth. With help I found the firing pin and firing pin lock was the problem. You could push down on the firing pin lock, there was resistance at first, then it would break free. I ordered a Dawson precision firing pin and the problem went away. Long story short I took SIG's armorer class so I could buy Sig parts. They wouldn't sell me the two parts. The most I've ever spent on a pistol. Not happy..

    4 1/2 year old thread?

    Not much coming out of Sig Germany. The German plant is a ghost town. Plus, the German government stopped Sig's ability to export.

    The American custom shop doesn't build guns so that's out :(

    Watch the classifieds for my Scorpion. I'm getting ready to move it. It will be a great price.

    I was fortunate to shoot with Max on a couple occasions. Nice guy, and funny too.

    You know, that used to matter to me for quite a while. Maybe it doesn't bother me because I alread have some that are as JMB intended.

    The thoughts of a Pistol Dynamics 1911 by Paul Liebenberg are racing through my head nowadays. Any discussion of external extractors send my brain in his direction. Good thing I don't have any money....
