Go look at their new, single action only, competition pistols. They are really nice and shoot pretty sweet, too. I cannot vouch for the accuracy, I ran a couple of racks of plates with it, but I would bet it can group. The one I shot was the plain jane 9 mm. (

I am a 1911 fanatic, but have a couple of Sigs. A P-220 in .45 acp that I carries for many years as a policeman and a P-239 9 mm that I bought a year or so ago. I said I bought it for my wife, but I play with it every now and then.

Both of the Sigs are very accurate and shoot as good as most production guns. If I were limited to only one gun, it wouldn't be either Sig. On the other hand, I would not feel shorted if either one was my only gun.

For range practice I like the 1911. CCW or duty carry I like the P220 or the P245. Just so people don't freek out over the hammer locked in the cocked position.

I think that the SIG P210 is the best service handgun ever made. However, for self-defense I prefer my 1939 Colt Government Model National Match. While the M1911 is nowhere near as accurate, reliable, rugged, or durable as the P210, it is quicker to bring into action and more amenable to sighting aids such as laser grips.

Got a 210, 220, and a few 1911's. The heel release on the 210 is tough for a quick reload. Although 1911' are my favorites I must say that the 220 is the most reliable pistol I've ever owned.

What do you mean by a 1911 is quicker to bring into action than a P210?

Stiff and poorer located safety for one , aside from the previously mentioned heel release for reloads.

Primarily a 1911 man. I have owned several Sig's and found them to be the most reliable weapon I have ever owned. Having said that, I sold my 229 to get a SIG Compact Revolution and have not looked back. I had been searching for a True Commander length gun with an Officers grip and this gun has all that and more......

1911 & SIG P-series

Each is the product of different design philisophies, different eras, different applications. I like both for their oustanding points:

1911 - best trigger in the world, aesthetics, no tool detail strip, huge aftermarket support

SIG P-series - DA/SA seems best for carry/defense, reliability, capacity (9mm)

They complement, rather than replace, each other.

I love 1911's but I carry Sigs and HK's more than my 1911's.
