Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The slide has hardly any play to the frame. The trigger is crisp. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance requirements.

Our Assessment: Sig has long been a quality handgun manufacturer, with their P-series pistols some of the most popular on the market. Still, even Sig knows that there’s something timeless about the 1911. This is their take on the classic 1911, with a series ’80 firing pin block, external extractor, and stainless slide and frame. It is in Fine condition with its original box and a set of three magazines to get you started. If you don’t have a 1911 or if you don’t have a Sig, this pistol can check both boxes and will make a great shooter for years to come. Please see our photos and good luck!
