I wanted to replace the 1911 I had stolen from me. Didn't have to be the exact model; that one was a Para Hi-Cap. I loved it, never had a problem, held 14 rds, etc etc. I posted a while ago asking people's opinions about 1911 makers and what not. There were a lot of positive comments about a few different brands. Sig being one of them. I was originally gonna get a Kimber, but the model I wanted was over a grand. Found a few 1911 enthusiasts in my unit. Our Chaplain has several different brands. A couple of them said that their favorites thus far had been Sigs. The word was that they shoot extremely well, use excellent parts and are much cheaper than a Kimber, or Wilson, etc.
Found this package on sale and liked the price, the rest is history
