BUDS - Please look into the correct "sights" that comes with the Sig 1911 Evolution Target model. It supposed to be Target Adjustable Night Sights. I received one that came with Target Adjustable 3 Dot Sights.
I'm rating this purchase based on 3 criteria - Brand/Reliablity, Quality/Workmanship for the Price Point, Features.
1 - Brand/Reliability ; Remains to be seen because haven't brought it out to shoot yet.
2 - Quality Workmanship - Couple of issues found during cleanup; Tool mark on the rear of the slide that was painted over. The ejector looks chipped and jacked up. The extractor seems to be rotated at the 11 o'clock position and it's not flush at all.
3. Features - Love the checkering, target components, and overall feel. Big issue with the sights as it should have been Target Adjustable Night Sights. This was the k onley feature that made me decide to purchase this 1911 over the Kimber Target Model.
I'm not feeling warm and fuzzy with this model/purchase. I'm really disappointed as this was a pretty big purchase for me @ $800+. I expected more to be honest. Now feeling like I should have purchased the KImber or even the American Classic II at half the price and would have been extremely happy. I'm guessing since that I already had this transferred to me that there is not a way I can request an exchange with BUDS? Had I seen all the flaws (noticed all these after cleanup), I would have sent this staright back.
As for BUDS SERVICE! - 5 Stars ; This is my 7th purchase and never had an issue. You guys have been very help and great to work with. Please do look in to the "sights" as describe as above so that future customers that would purchase this model would not be as disappointed as I am.
