    Recently put in some overtime and plan on picking up another 1911. I have owned Kimber, Springfields, and a series 70 Colt in the past. Recently I was able to chat with the Sig Sauer rep and was pretty impressed with their 1911s as well. I know there is a firing pin safety on these but am unsure if it is the series 80 style or the Swartz style. I assume they use the Swartz system since Sig employs a few of Kimbers former gun designers/engineers. Anybody know for sure or have first hand experience?

    Thanks in advance.

    I really like their Tac-Ops model.

    Going by Bacs guide the one he has is an 80s system.

    I do not remember from my old Sig C3 1911, but it was a good gun either way.

    All their 1911's are series 80.

    Dang I was hoping it was the Swartz system. I guess that gun is out of the running for me. :Cry:

    Glock 2740 - That TacOps is the one I was playing with at the booth. Very nice gun.

    Shortimer - I believe it! That is a great carry gun and a nice piece.
