    There's not much "traditional" about the lockwork, the extractor, or the chamberings.

    But I guess the round-topped slide and GI guide rod makes up for it.

    OK, got it, calling something Traditional that never was.

    I may appear slow at times , that's because I am on some things and quick as a whip on others.........:whip2::whip2::whip2:

    Dang, slow whip ain't it?

    I think this is based solely on the traditional lines of the slide. Truth be told, if they made one of their more "Sig styled" 1911's in 9mm I'd put it in the "maybe" column

    I like the two tone. Fine looking weapon. Hardly traditional, for sure.
    Oh, I like 2-tone 1911s, too.

    So if it is the caliber you want, it works, and you want it;
    just get it, don't complain about it.

    I don't like 2 tone handguns; sorta like a revolver with a pink cylinder.

    However, there a couple of guys on here that should have one.

    It's official: there's not a single gun that Sig makes that I like.

    What about the X-Five Colors?
