    I'm looking at getting a Sig tac ops 1911. It is in 95% condition. The price is $750 (plus about $30 in gas to go get it). Is that a good price, it seems to be to me. Also, any opinions generally on the Sig tac ops? Any better pistols than it for $750?

    I have a number of other handguns, including various striker fired polymer guns. My uses would be, home defense, possible concealed carry, and handgun courses and possibly IDPA (which I shoot for fun and to improve skills not forcedly to be the top time). I have guns that fill all these roles already. I have wanted a nicer 1911 for some time and this one would also fill that role.

    Probably no.

    Sig TacOps is a very accurate 1911 that has stainless frame/slide and match grade components.

    When I did my search for sub $1000 1911, I decided on the Sig TacPac that came with railed XO (stainless frame/slide with black Nitron finish), laser, holster and 2 mags for $850 at LGS. Email from Sig Sauer confirmed that railed XO pistol was indeed same as TacOps without the ambi safety, night sights and mag well.

    Bud's Gunshop has the TacPac for $769 and free shipping. Unless you need the ambi safety, I would suggest the new TacPac over the used TacOps.

    Here's my TacPac review and range report - http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=599748

    That is a suggestion I will look at and consider. The tacop does come with 2 more mags, a magwell, and night sights. Those features might make it a better buy. Thoughts?

    You stated the used TacOps is 95%.

    Not sure what you mean by that?
    Do you know how many rounds were fired in the pistol and how much wear it has?
    Are you able to test fire the pistol to verify the accuracy?
    Is the selling price firm?

    I think the price is pretty firm it may move slightly. For an extra $150 it also has a holster and a light that from my searches retail online for about $140 and $90 respectively.

    I don't know how many rounds but it is advertised as a year old and in great shape.

    Are you able to handle the pistol?

    Slide to frame fit should be tight with almost no movement/rattle yet slide should cycle smoothly without any grittiness or snag.

    Is it a store or private party?

    private party. I haven't gone to see it yet as it is a long drive. So I don't want to go unless I'm more than likely to buy it.

    I saw in an ad in a magazine that showed a "tactical" SIG 1911 Commander model and a threaded barrel yet one doesn't show up on their website. I would like to get that but I don't know if it exsists outside of that ad.
