Based on what I've read online since getting mine I'd be hesitant to buy one. It's also worth mentioning that mine is a Ultra Carry II, the model with a 3" barrel and no barrel bushing. That may or may not have anything to do with its performance. I've seen a 4" model that had repeated issues loading the round fully, so the slide wouldn't return fully forward and it couldn't be fired. He no longer owns that gun but now has a 5" fullsize Kimber that he loves.

FWIW, I have no experience with the Sig Sauer 1911, but based on my experience with other Sigs it would be VERY high on my list of guns to check out if I were in the market. Springfield also makes nice stuff, but after owning and shooting both I feel that Sig is a good step higher in the quality and performance categories.....price too

Your buddy must have some small, girly hands if a single stack 1911 is too much gun for him
Ya he's just a little guy at like 4 10. Likes his xds better that's still not back lol.
