Wow. I wasn't old enough to own a pistol then. Looks pristine. Bo Mar sights are made anymore :(

I do. He showed me his shop once years ago but I didn't get into shooting pistol NM till recently. He had a backlog then so I didn't want to have my pistol just sit there.

I acquired this 1941 U.S. Army Colt M1911A1 decades ago. It's one of my first pistols. Shipped to Commanding General Springfield Armory, Springfield Massachusetts, 27 Dec 1941, shipment contained 1,200 pistols.

The next gun down the road is a 1911 for me.  I was looking at the SIG's.  I don't want to be spending $1500+ on a 1911.  I'm not at the point where I would appreciate or can tell the diff between a $1K and a $2K 1911.  I did see a few colts that were about $800ish, but they look super basic.  And the Sigs look way cooler.  My pistol are tools so if they get dirty or dinged up, I don't care.  That's the main reason why I don't want an expensive 1911.  I won't want to shoot it.

Is Sig a good brand for the price?

Also I heard the mags don't last very long.  And to just replace them instead of trying to fix them.

I have shot my friend's Sig Nightmare.  it's a very nice 1911.  good feel, grips, trigger, has the bobtail grip.  I really like it.  it feels comparable quality to my Springfield RO.  I think price is around the same, in the $1k range
my friend hasn't had any issues with his Sig 1911.  don't know about the mags, although 1911 mags are easy to find
good luck!   :shaka:
