Turner's RC is having an good deal tomorrow on the Sig XO 1911 for $699, so I'm asking for input on this gun. Anyone own one and can share their experience? Is it fully compatible with 1911 parts or are there proprietary components like in the S&W 1911s? How do they compare with a Springfield 1911 Loaded or the Colt 1991 Series 80 that's also on sale for $699?
Thanks!

My brother has one and Im not a big fan of it. The grip safety is awkward and I really dont like the finish they use. I have a stainless Sig GSR and like it much more that his XO.

The Sig 1911 is compatible with aftermarket parts as long as you're not planning to change out the slide due to a different firing pin safety design. If you use a series 70 and have the lever modified, it should work. The extractor is also different. Besides those mentioned parts everything else should be the same as long as we're talking drop in parts.

The Springfield Armory Loaded is similar to the 70 series Colt 1911s. They utilized a titanium firing pin and extra power firing pin spring to pass the drop test. To my experience I do not prefer titanium firing pins due to primer flow problems, but before I get sentenced to the guillotine, I am aware of the low operating pressure of the 45ACP, but there are +p loads out there and some 45 super. I have not experimented with titanium firing pins while shooting the +p stuff, so if anyone here has please educate me on it. I did use titanium firing pins with high pressure 38 super and 9mm loads and the cratering is much more pronounced compared to steel firing pins.

have a SIG 1911 and the finish is super tough, the frame is fully compatible with 22lr conversions and CQC serpa holsters. I haven't tried any other accessories as mine came pretty damn tricked out. They are ridiculously accurate guns so enjoy.

What is that thing that looks like the MSH lock on SA 1911s on the side just below the rear sight?

I think that is part of the firing-pin safety.

Anyway, we called the store a few minutes ago, and there were only two left and possibly already in the DROS process.

I just looked at my Colt 1991A1 Commander and it's weird how the firing pin plunger seems to be the same size and place as the one on my Sig GSR TTT. Hmmmm... Should I even try to mount the Colt top end on the Sig GSR TTT's frame? Hmmmm...
