This non-railed pistol features a Nitron slide over a natural stainless frame and is accented by beautiful custom wood grips. The slide is further accented by polished cocking serrations and a flat top which enhances the two-tone aspect of this pistol. The slide is topped off with adjustable combat night sights, while the frame is outfitted with a magwell for fast smooth reloads. The frame and slide of the STX are machined to exacting tolerances and hand-fitted to insure reliability and performance. The frame features 25-line per inch checkering on the front strap, while the mainspring housing has 20-line per inch checkering. Like all SIG products, the 1911 STX pistol contains only premium internal parts including a match grade barrel, hammer/sear set, and trigger. For safety, the 1911 STX features a beavertail grip safety, extended ambidextrous thumb safety, and firing pin safety.
Amazing quality, very accurate, and he's definitely a handsome boy. Rear sight easily adjust and hold POI very well. Simply a very well made production 1911 that does not disappoint. Slide to frame and barrel to bushing fit is as tight as my much higher priced customs! I own many 1911's in the STX's price point and by far this particular model is my favorite. Some may find the beautiful wooden grips to be a bit slippery but both mainspring housing and front checkering does a great job of keeping your hands glued in place. Now about the the polished cocking serrations.... You'll just have to feel it to believe it. Working that slide (even with wet hands) is a breeze! People will moan and cry over it being a series 80 but the trigger is as smooth as the next production 1911 in line. It does not come with a 2.5 lbs trigger pull but again you'll have to spend 2-3 times the money if that's what you're expecting. I probably shoot more then the average Joe and right out of the box on the very first day of it being in my possession, I sent exactly 1k rounds down range in a single session without a single malfunction of any kind. No problem, no wears, you will believe me if I told you that it was an unfired pistol after simply wiping it down. A quality firearm for an affordable price backed by Sig's legendary CS.
