I've done a good amount of research for my next gun, and was deciding between a 1911 TRP Operator and the SigSauer 1911 GSR. The GSR won out for me but now I can't figure out if it's on the roster or not.

I see no mention of GSR on the roster, but "Railed" is?

1911 (Blued) / Stainless Steel
1911 (Stainless) / Stainless Steel
1911 Railed (Blued) / Stainless Steel
1911 Railed (Stainless) / Stainless Steel
1911 Target (Blued) / Stainless Steel
1911 Target (Stainless) / Stainless Steel
1911 Target Railed (Blued) / Stainless Steel
1911 TTT (Two-tone/Wood Grip) / Stainless Steel
1911 XO (Blued) / Stainless Steel
1911 XO (Stainless) / Stainless Steel

Is the Sig 1911 GSR Stainless known as the "1911 Railed (Stainless)" on the roster?

Thanks!

Sig dropped the GSR name and redesigned their 1911s after the poor fit of the GSR really brought them down. The only new 1911s they're building are just called 1911s. Although there are models of the 1911, the GSR name is no more I believe.

My dad shoots the 1911 Railed in stainless. Very nice gun, although his seems to always return to battery after a magazine is emptied.

It is a 1911R now. The Operator is very nice but I will take the Sig over any of them. I just wish Sig would get the 4.25" RCS approved. Man that is a sweet shooter.

I know this doesn't answer the OP's question, but I just bought a GSR TTT and I absolutely LOVE it. I took it out the other day to break it in, and it's far more accurate than I am, and after 116 rounds down the pipe my carpal-tunnel afflicted wrists felt just like they had not been shooting. Buy one if you get the chance, you'll not regret it. I know I don't.

i think you would be better served by the TRP also. the operator rail never did anything for me...but then i don't put lights on my guns

GSR TTT IS a AWESOME GUN. It's an absolute tack driver right out of the box. Did you get that from "silverfj40"? If so, I miss her. Had that baby shipped in from Exeter Arms. She will serve you for many years/rounds to come. Congrats.:D...

Hah! Yes, I did in fact. I take it she was yours? You have excellent taste in weapons, and you took impeccable care of her. My hat's off to you good sir, your weapon is in good hands now. :D

or just get the various models of P220 already on the list if you want a single stack 45...

You know, I would but my main pistol is a P226 and stylistically it's too close to the P220 for me to want both. I want to diversify a bit.

I just want to confirm, it looks like Sig no longer makes the GSR and since the handgun roster doesn't explicitly list GSR and just says 1911 Railed the gun is not on the roster and thus illegal to import into California?

I had one of those GSR 1911 railed, but I don't recall that I used GSR as model name or the "1911 railed". Anyway, it had "3 point jam" problem, Sig could not fixed it after three tries, so they replaced it with a new one. The main difference between the new and the old is that the silde no loner says "GSR" on the new ones.
I would believe that if your FFL accepts that the GSR railed is the same as the 1911 Railed, then the transfer could be done. If your source still has the original box that comes with the gun, check for the item/model number and see if it says 19GS0005. This is the current item number on the 1911 stainless rail.

so get the ST version. i too have a 226 (and a 229) and a 220ST (first gen).

might as well make it all in the family.

controls are all the same.
