    That Sir, was exactly my point...

    The Sig TTT is very nice and accurate with beautiful burl wood grips.

    And I believe it is the same quality of the TRP

    The Top of the Line is either the Super Target or the Max Mitchel. I have the Super Target. This one is nitron which they no longer make. I enjoy the SIG 1911s. Depending on your price range, you should also consider Dan Wesson 1911s.

    I own the Nightmare Fastback and have owned the Nickel Rail. Both 100% reliable. Excellent firearms.

    Picked up the TACOPS last week... Not very interested in 'top of the line' pistols.
    I'm likely to drop them in the mud at some point...

    You may want to check the DOJ approved list and then compare the models that you would be able to buy in CA. I purchased a Nitron 1911 a couple of years ago. This was the basic model and it came with night sights and adjustable trigger. It is very accurate but when Sig had a sale on 1911 22 conversion kits, I put the conversion on and left it as a 22.
    I plan to use it to qualify for my CCW in Nevada.

    Here is what is approved now:

    I like 1911s, I like to shoot 1911s, I like 1911s that shoot out of the box and I like to carry 1911s that I can defend myself with if/when needed. Of the 1911s that I own, four Colts, two in 45auto and two in 38Super have all been carried and I've used both calibers to defend myself...I like 1911s.

    I view 1911s from a working/protection viewpoint, along with S&W magnums, and I've come to really like the SIG emperor scorpion as a carry option.

    Attachment 3777

    There's a lot of bang for the buck, especially with MIL/LE discounts...and SIG participates in MIL/LE discounts, for those who are looking for a Commander size, bobtail carry piece. Front strap is 30lpi, night sights (I've had three low light/night range sessions during the past month), G10 grips and ambi safety...for those times when switching hands.

    My Browning Hi-Power has an external extractor, as do many other designs, along with quality MIM parts, as do many other designs including magnum revolvers. There can be good and bad processes for making MIM parts, same goes for cast and forged parts.

    This SIG has digested everything from from SWCs to premium HSTs, Ranger Ts, Gold Dots and Golden Sabers; it's very accurate and split times can be pushed with different slide speeds do to different types of ammunition, from target to +P velocities.

    What's not to like, it works.

    I love the Sig TTT myself not top of the line but I believe it is the best value.
