    Well I got to thinking like I always do and started to wonder just how many people would buy one of the Sig Sauer GSR1911's and it doesn't matter if it's compact or not it still the GSR1911.

    So would you or would you NOT??? Oh and please don't forget to back up your answer (preferable) (I.e. why would you? why would you not?)

    I know that GSR stands for Granite Series Rail, but it's also know as the Granite Series Revolution, for those that aren't made with rails.

    Nope. The funky slide shape probably makes holster shopping difficult for those of us who like tightly molded leather. Plus I have one railed 1911 that I never use anymore, one railed 1911 that is a commemorative model with my Iraq unit and OIF 06-08 on it, and one railed 1911 that is my "Oh, if only they would let me take my own gun to war" pistol. I don't need any more railed 1911s.

    They are not all railed 1911's. As for the tight leather holster "BLACKHAWK" my friend. I appreciate the fact that you at least gave your reasoning though. and HOOAH/OORAH!!! to you making it back my friend. I've been out there too.

    When it comes to 1911's, I just prefer an internal extractor. I know that may not be practical, but I am biased. At least I admit it.

    GSR Does stand for Granite Series Rail, or Granite Seires Revolution For those that aren't made with rails. I can prove to you that they are not all made with picatinny rails. mine isn't and it's a GSR1911C3 and the (4) right outside my office have no rails

    I did and I'm glad. Railed will fit a Blackhawk Serpa as well.

    There are so many other 1911's that I would like to have that I don't see myself ever buying an ugly Sig1911.

    I know many will say its about function and not looks, but I consider both. Also, I don't like handguns with rails.

    Best feature I like on the Sig is the material used for the
    internal parts - not MIM.

    but I've got a 1911 - I would like a Sig P239 for CCW.

    sigs are nice guns, and i am sure that there 1911's are fine, but when there is sa avaliable, i am gonna go that route everytime, but i would own one if i was given one, and i really like the c3 model if i was going to buy one that is the model that i woudl get.

    You would love the crap outta the C3 possum, I wish you lived up near me I'd take you to the range and let you fire out a whole box of shells just for the S&G

    I have one and love it. Of course my other 1911's are all jealous of each other any way, 2 Randalls, 2 Colts, and even a Taurus, and oh yea an old Remmington Rand. It's an addiction.:D

    I wouldn't.

    The slide is what breaks the deal for me. Personally, I like the 1911 because it is thin. Adding width to the slide....I just don't get it.

    Another thing is that the GSR series has had a few problems with timing. Broken barrel links aren't for me. Knowing Sig, I'm sure they will have that problem straightened out sooner or later.

    I don't reckon I'd want one bad enough to try to afford it (which ain't all that likely!)

    No. Its an illogical brand loyalty thing. I own a 229 and like it plenty, but I love my Colt 1911 variations.
