Sig Sauer 1911R45TACPA 1911 TacPac 45 ACP 5" 8+1 Ergo Gr [1911R45TACPAC]
by JOSHUA N

WOW! For such a great price, this 1911 shoots like a dream! I've handled 9mm mostly, but when I ordered this .45 I was ready and expectant of the legend. I was in great surprise! This 1911 shoots just like any other would... accurate, clean, and comfortable. It comes with a laser attachment (my version atleast) and with an EZ loader... The stock magazines needed no cleaning, and they loaded fairly easily. After cleaning the gun (you should always clean and lubricate a gun before you shoot it for the first time) I was ready to take it to the range, and with hundreds of rounds so far, I have had NO problems. Absolutely NONE. Remeber, guns are not plug-and-play devices; you can't just use them right out the box. Proper maintenance will ensure you do not wear out parts prematurely or hurt yourself un-intentionally.
It is tight in construction (infact everything is tight and well made), fieldstrips easily, and is beautiful (in a very classy sort of way). The finish is lasting well and is tasteful, and everything works the way it should. This gun is a heavy gun (which is great in my opinion) and I would say the advantages to that are many - one being it keeps your hands more steady (relax, it's an easy trigger pull) as apposed to polymer stocks (which aren't bad at all, but I prefer this one).
I'm not a big fan of switching out the magazines with different aftermarket kinds, so any problems mentioned with misfeeding or jams in other reviews are probably because of aftermarket parts. Get those at your own risk... However, with a .45, it won't take many shots (probably just one) to stop the criminal or robber, so I'm not worried about hi-cap mags.
I don't believe there is any need for any replacement parts on this weapon/pistol.
Overall - Totally worth the money, and with Bud's, I will never buy retail again! All parts are built to spec, built to last, and with the Sig Sauer warranty, this pistol will definitely last. Go with factory mags, they work just fine. Case is sturdy, but lightweight, and the laser works exactly the way it should. The holster is great too, it will be perfect for concealed carry.
Cons - If ANY (which I think there isn't overall), the stipple on the grips is a little touchy... I haven't thought too much about this yet, but if you don't want your hands to be super sore after a long shoot, I would suggest just sanding down the tips of the stippling (I don't think that affects the warranty, but don't hold me responsible!). But if you are patient, or just lazy like I am, I'm sure a few years of active use of this pistol will wear down the stipple to where most people would like it.
Buds is super awesome with customer service (they actually understand English), and even though this is a gun review, I have to say Bud's is awesome. This was my first purchase, and you can bet there will be another one soon...
