Just saw the very lengthy discussion on the SIG forum myself. Definitely worth reading - although some of the posts will make your blood boil. Things like "No 1911 is reliable out of the box" "1911 design outdated" "gun is inherently inaccurate", "you can't buy a decent 1911 for under $1000" etc.

Rumor has it that cost will be about $900 - but that's unconfirmed.

Not to hijack thread, but I'm curious - how many of you would consider a SIG 1911?

How many would be interested if they also offered it in .357 or 10mm?

Who's next on this bandwagon? Jennings or Glock?

I just took a look at the pics on the SigForum. The Sig Granite Series has the wide standard Sig cocking serrations and an integrated light rail. The Frame looks a lot like the old boxier SA frames with a shorten operator dust cover. The slide looks more like a P220 slide with no FCS or a FLGR. It doesn't look bad, but I like S&W's contribution to the 1911 clone wars better.

Yep, this one I'm checking out! A 1911 that actually has a Sig look to it. I think this one will be very interesting. The 1911 war is heating up big time!

Regards,
Sam

Not so chunky and bulky looking. More along the lines of the original. Maybe I was looking at the wrong image? Can someone please tight click one of the Sig 1911 pics and select "properties" and post that? It would let me be 100% sure I was looking at the same thing you are.

Thanks.
