I mentioned the SIG 1911 Spartan back in early January, and had a chance to take a few photos of it at the SHOT Show in the same month. The gun looked great, but it was kept under glass. So I did not get to handle it. As you might suspect, there were not any of the Spartan’s on the range for Media Day either.
As you might remember, the Spartan is a special edition version of the 1911 pistol made by SIG Sauer. SIG has been making 1911 guns for a number of years now. While purists dislike the SIG Sauer name on the slide and a few other derivations in design from John Moses Browning’s original design, I happen to like them.
