Manufacturer’s Description

The RCS—which stands for 1911 Revolution Compact SAS—comes from the SIG SAUER Customs Shop and has been put through the SIG Anti-Snag treatment which our gunsmiths developed to radically dehorn a pistol. Available in either a Natural Stainless or Nitron finish, the RCS comes with Novak night sights, checkered front strap (25-lpi), checkered mainspring housing (20-lpi) and slim profile custom wood grips. The grips are either gray diamondwood on the Stainless model or rosewood on the Nitron version.

Each of these 7+1 capacity RCS model 1911 pistols features a stainless steel slide, alloy frame, match grade barrel, hammer/sear set and trigger. The slides and frames are machined to exacting tolerances and hand-fitted to insure reliability and performance.

An absolutly perfect carry gun. There are others that fit that discription but the RCS is exceptional. Very accurate with very little felt recoil. Learned one lesson. Field strip any SIG 1911 on the counter before paying for the gun. The first RCS had a defective, very overground rail under the slide at rear. It took over six months to get a replacement directly from SIG last year.

I own and shoot many 1911s, was a competition shooter for the Army, purchased a Sig 1911RCS and have not been as happy with this Sig as I have my other Sigs (P220,P229,P239,P232,P238) 1st will not feed factory wadcutters, 2nd the felt recoil of factory service rounds is un-real, recoils like a 44 Mag. I carry a Colt Combat Commander as a duty weapon with the Sheriffs Dept, it is no-where close in the felt recoil with the same ammo.I am worried the gun will come apart.

Perfect gun for carry purposes, but had to send it back to Sig for failure to feed and failure to return to battery issues 3 weeks after I bought it. Repairs were done quickly and, so far, effectively. Does kick much more than my full size Remington R1S Government Model, but expected that. Like the G10 grips, but they can be harsh after shooting more than a box of .45 ACP ball. Have fed several types of JHP thru it without issues. Stock mags seem to work OK with an occasional FTF, but Wilson 47D XO mags work best.
