    Picked up Number 10 Today

    My 10th 1911, that is; a Sig Ultra 45acp Tribal.

    Paula showed me a pic Bronxboy (alumnus of Brownie’s mobility impaired threat focused pistol course a few years ago) posted on farcebook, which turned out to be from my favorite LGS.

    I checked them out, and found that while they were listed as “out of stock” everywhere; the reviews I found were very positive. So, I went down there today and picked it up. Mike did say that he couldn’t get that model any more.

    I had a busy day, and didn’t get it on the bench until late this PM. Everything looked good, other than a little MIM, and the whole thing being loaded with a whitish grease. I didn’t have time to do a detail strip, but got things cleaned up pretty well, including the FP and extractor channels. Yes; even though Sig 1911’s have external extractors, they have extractor channels.

    Fit and finish is very good, and I like the fact that it has a 3.3” barrel, rather than the three inch ones seen on most sub-compact 1911’s these days.

    I’ll give it a wringing out up at the hunt camp this weekend, but don’t expect any functional issues based on what I’ve seen.

    I’m heading up to camp on the airboat with tomorrow PM’s incoming tide, but will try to get a few pics up early next week.

    Thank you Sir!

    Here’s a generic online pic until I can take some proper ones:

    A few features that “tipped the scales” for me compared to other brands were; FLGR with a flat wire non-captive recoil spring, rather than the multi-layered recoil assemblys found on most S/C 1911’s (so no funky “takedown tools” needed). [I don’t care for FLGR’s on the larger model 1911’s, but on the sub-compacts it’s warranted.] Nite sights, decent stocks, a nice trigger pull, interesting tribal engraving on the sides and top of the slide, a smaller sized hammer spur and GS similar to the Wilson tactical carry ones, checkered front and backstrap, and two seven round mags (made by Check Mate, according to the Patent# on the follower) included.

    Oh yeah. It has a mag well. On an officer’s sized grip frame, that extra 1/4” is nice.
