“If the bullet is the tack then this is the driver,” reads the description of SIG Sauer’s new sport-oriented 1911, the Super Target. These classy pistols will be available with stainless or Nitron finishes and are upgraded versions of the 1911 Target series.

Like SIG’s Traditional series 1911s they sport classic 1911 contours with several modern touches. Super Target models are full-size single-action single-stack .45 ACP handguns with more than a couple of upgrades to give them the competitive edge.

They’re well-off when it comes to features, starting with a very pretty set of Scandinavian Birch target grips that have an integral, extended magwell that neatly conceal the eight-round magazines tucked inside.

SIG hand-fits the Target pistols that are equipped with match-grade barrels and fire control parts including the hammer, sear and trigger. The hammer and trigger are skeletonized and the trigger includes an overtravel screw.

The slide stop and ambidextrous trigger are slightly extended and serrated and the magazine release is extended as well. Common to SIG 1911s Super Target pistols have extended beavertail grip safeties with “memory buttons” at the base of the safety.

The frames feature 25-line-per-inch checkering on the frontstrap and the backstrap has and 20-LPI checkering for a stable but not overly-sharp grip texture. Not all of the embellishments are strictly for function, as the slide is engraved with a polished SIG logo that blends into the gun’s lines perfectly.

Riding on top of the slide is a long fiber-optic front sight and fully-adjustable rear target sight to perfectly tune the gun and the load to the shooter. The slide has wide, full-height slide serrations at the rear for easy slide manipulation under any circumstances.

And while the Nitron model has SIG’s familiar satin black finish the Stainless model has a dark, matte grey finish with a bead-blasted look.

Both models will weigh in at a hair over 41 ounces unloaded and have suggested retail prices at around $1,399, but like with all SIG products, street prices will be a couple hundred less. We expect these to list in the $1,100 to $1,200 range, give or take, which is competitive with other premium 1911s.

SIG Sauer doesn’t have the details listed yet on the company’s website but they are going into production this month and will ship soon. For more details and all things SIG, head over to the SIG Sauer Facebook page.
