    I'm seriously thinking about a Sig Compact Nitron. I want a CCO type steel framed carry gun and have been looking at the Kimber compact stainless, and this model Sig (19GS0015)

    Anyone own this model Sig, and can you give some feedback? From what I've been able to find out, it looks like it has very few if any MIM parts, does not have a full length guide rod, and is reliable and accurate. It's hard to tell though since it seems there aren't many out there.

    Is it a better gun than the series II Kimber compact stainless, or at least it's equal?

    i own 2 sigs... 229R elite and 239 and they are nothing but fantastic. the fit and finish is top notch and i've put 1000 rds thru the 2 of them so far without a single problem...

    i wouldn't think twice about buying a sig 1911 cco

    edit- and for what its worth, you hear far more often about kimber's being hit or miss with quality control than you do sig's.

    That's what I think too. I've heard a lot of hit or miss things about the current Kimber series II pistols. From what I can find, the latest Sig 1911 compacts are spot on. And the old CEO from Kimber is now running Sig--unless that is just an internet rumor.

    The Sig does not have a full length guide rod, and very very few MIM parts. You don't hear too much about them though, and I think it's because Kimber is totally dominating the market with great looking pistols and advertising, and also the Sigs don't have quite the classic lines and looks to them. But really, I am hoping the Sig is built better.
