The Sig Sauer 1911 Match Elite in 45ACP is an excellent value. It comes stock with almost everything I was looking for in a competition/range gun at a great price from Bud\'s. The only changes I made were to add a fiber optic front sight and some G-10 grips (which I already had). Through almost 400 rounds, it has performed with no stoppages. I gave it only four stars because when I got it, the trigger pull was about 6.2 lbs and gritty. I had my local gunsmith look it over and he had to remove a small burr that was dragging on the trigger bar. After that, the trigger has been very smooth with a nice reset. The pull weight is about 4.75 lbs. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. Bud\'s once again provided great service and a great price.

So Bud's ran a quick sale on this thing and I picked it up for around $780, I've been looking for a decent 1911 for a while now so the timing worked out well. Once I got it in my hands I broke it down to clean & inspect it and this thing is very nice, as you'd expect from Sig. The machining was super clean; everything fit together very nicely especially the barrel bushing which earns you some good accuracy, which brings me to the range test. It was a quick trip to the range; 50rds of Winchester white box and it ran flawlessly with both the factory mags and the two Chip McCormick mags that I have. The rear sight is easy to adjust and I was hitting the inner rings consistently after the second mag and I'm only moderately experienced. Overall I'm looking forward to getting out to the range for some more range time but my initial impression is that Sig is making a very nice gun for the money.

I put 150 rounds through this gun the day after I picked it up from my FFL. I had a couple failures to feed the first round from Wilson 47D magazines, so I don't think Wilsons are going to work in this one. The stock magazines did not have the same problem, so I'll likely order more from Sig. I did a little testing when I got home and noticed the feed lip design of the stock magazines is the "hybrid" design that Colt uses. They hold the top round at a steeper angle than the wadcutter feed lips of the Wilson magazines. This puts the cartridge in a better position to feed reliably into the chamber. The fit and finish are of the usual high quality from Sig Sauer. I added an Ed Brown magwell and Dawson Precision front sight as the gun is going to be used for USPSA Single Stack division. So far I'm pleased. A little more testing of magazines to make sure it's 100% reliable and I think we've got a winner.

Like all Sig Sauer 1911s, this one is beautifully finished, with a light & crisp 3.5 lb trigger pull. I added a Smith & Alexander stainless magwell & VZ Rosewood magwell grips to make this an even more beautiful shooter. I woulod rank Sig Sauer as my favorite "out of the box" excellent shooters, with little needing to be done. The triggers are among the best tuned of all factory 1911s on the market, along with Rock Island, which also have very nice "out of the box" triggers (excellent value 1911s). Add this one to your 1911 collection and you won't be sorry. I would like to see Sig put on adjustable target night sights on this instead of just the front sight being tritium.
