    Amazing 1911. Traditional in every way, except it’s modern, made to extremely high tolerances, and it’s a Sig. Shoots absolutely every ammo perfectly, and is stunningly accurate – right out of the box. This is an exceptional weapon with fit, finish and performance that exceeds any handgun at 3 times the price. I sold my Kimber within 3 weeks. There was no comparison – and the Kimber was $1,900.

    Go ahead an but this handgun. If you don’t love it, I’ll buy it from you. The only thing better than a new Sig Traditional in 45 ACP – is 2 of them.
