Owned a bunch of different ones
SIG STX is still in the safe and I'm sure it's had one I just don't ever remember it happening (Malfunction)
But a 40 Match Elite (proper 1911 slide profile) last Nov when SIG started purging their 1911 40's. Bought for 650.00 out the door , couldn't pass it up for that.
It has run with out failures of any kind, and actually feeds a little smoother with 10 round mags than the gun I built. (Slight difference in ramp angles)
I have the Sig Scorpion Fastback, Sig C3, and Sig Ultra.
The Ultra and C3 have slim bushings and grips for pocket carry. The Fastback has rubber grips for Mexican Carry.
All of them were 100% right out of the box and continue to function flawlessly.
The fit and finish is outstanding for a production pistol.
Sig does a lot of doofy marketing things but with their 1911 line they did their Sig spin on the classic. I approve evolution of the gunline. If I wanted a classic I’d go Colt (which I did). But as a toy or as a self defense, their 1911s are sleepers.
I have a C3. Looks great. Feels great. Shoots great. I’m not bothered by the slide design or external extractor. I see the slide design as a ‘self-homage’. And why not? Their P-series pistol are iconic so why not leverage that and tie the two lines together? It’s not ‘pure’, but it’s not horrible, either (IMO). I also think they’d fit most holsters other that the most finely molded ones. (I use kydex for “Commander”, not for “Sig Commander” - no issue.)
A buddy has a Sig 5” gun. I’m not sure if the model. But it has the best factory trigger I’ve tried on a factory 1911, with no mods. It is also a tack driver and runs very nicely. Honestly, I used to be anti external extractor, but not anymore. As I age I’m more about function and his SIG rings that bell.
I had a first generation RCS. It was a piece of junk rattle trap that I couldn't get rid of fast enough. Took a beating on it just to get rid of it. Should I give Sig another try? Maybe. But I doubt I will.... there are so many other choices.
Had a TACOPS that was super smooth and great to shoot and miss it.
Shot a Sig Extreme in league bullseye and did really well.
They would be an extremely recommended 1911 if they would have started with some standard 1911 things like the slide shape and standard extractor. I think those things threw 1911 purest and making it difficult to get holsters.
