Nothing particularly different about the GSR, except the extractor. You need to look again -- it may just be the photograph. There are now two versions, now (in stainless and blued), one with a rail and one without. Here's mine, which I bought ANIB. I added an inexpensive mag well (from Numrich), which works fine.
This was an early one (sub 800 s/n) -- and there were some production issues early on. Mine has been absolutely flawless. Shoots well. Is very accurate, with a very nice trigger.
Having had a couple of 220s, I much prefer this gun. (Although a buddy has a nickel 220 that was tuned by Ernie Langdon that I'd really like to have...)

Last month I bit the bullet and purchased a Custom Shop STX (no light rail).
The first 100 rounds went off OK (a mix of Win Ball, Fiochi Ball and some SWC handloads).
Very accurate. Nice trigger. NO FLGR (that is important in a fighting gun).
I am not crazy about the external extractor. Kimber could not make them work. S&W seems to be able to. We will see.
On the second outing my son experienced 2 failures to go into battery with Winchester ball (a different lot than the one I shot). On the second one I took the round out and discovered that the bullet had set back in the case.
After much tinkering I detected a slight "hitch" in the feeding cycle which goes away if I push up on the magazine base. I have seen this in two other guns (a Springfield and a Series 70 Colt that someone had tinkered with). The culprit seems to be the magazine release which lets the mag sit very slightly too low.
Also the feed ramp is not as polished as a Taurus 1911 I purchased last week.
For a $1300 this is not quite as acceptable as on a $500 gun :cry:
PS to Dane: Yes 25 LPI checkering is just about right!

What is the cure to that "hitch in the feed cycle? I am on my 2nd GSR. The first one was replaced after 3 trips back to SiG for failing to go into battery on the last round. I took the replacement to the range and had the exact same problem. Failure to return to battery on the last round. I am starting to think that SiG is not aware that Commander frames are not exactly the same as a Gov frame.

When the problem truly is the mag release, then either replacing it or welding and refitting it (and that could cause problems if the weld is not hard enough) is the only answer.
If it is a really close thing it may not be the catch at all (they do require some degree of "slack" to allow all standard mags to fit in the pistol), then perhaps the bottom of the feed ramp in the frame is not quite far enough down and can be dressed up with a mandrel and a little bit of crocus cloth.
I try the mag catch first because it is so easy (but then I usually have about a dozen on hand anyway).

This is a list of the many problems I have had with the GSR 1911 Stainless Steel 45 ACP. This pistol is currantly on it,s third trip to SigArms.
1. Bullets misfeed going into the barrel and stick at about a 45° angle
2. The end of the casing on the upper side is damaged or rolled back.
3. Sometime the bullet is depressed down into the casing.
4. This problem occurs no matter what magazine is used.
5. This problem occurs in rapid or slow fire.
6. Every eight to ten shots has a misfeed.
7. Ammo used:
a. Winchester White Box Target load 230 gr. Around 2,200 rounds.
b. Federal Premium hydro shock 230 gr. Around 100 rounds.
c. CCI Blazer Brass 230gr. Around 400 rounds.
8. The slide stop (item 50) is very difficult to engage to slide stop plunger (item 5). You can not push the slide stop up and in against the slide stop plunger until the slide stop is fully inserted as described in section 5.3 paragraph 4 of the owner’s manual. You have to use a tool to push item 5 back enough for item 50 to engage item 5.
9. Rail is cracked just above the extractor and outside the barrel landing. (112 rounds after return from Sigarms)
10. Extractor is broke. (112 rounds after return from Sigarms)
11. One other minnor problem with the pistol is that the "Stainless Steel" will rust like crazy.
