It has been a while since I've been here but I do check in periodically to see what is going on. Like so many here, I cherish this forum not only as a resource for knowledge but as a community of friends.

I still have my R9s that I bought brand new all those years ago. To me it's not just a work of art but a piece of functional art. It has seen duty in my in-the-waistband holster and has shared time with me at the range. Properly treated and well-cared for, this little gem will perform.

To me it would be a sad day when this forum is no more. I do not want to see it go away. But even so, I realize that all things must pass. And all of us must prepare for that unwelcome eventuality. I just hope it does not happen for a very, very, long, long time.

How does this beauty compare with the likes of Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, etc?

They are really a completely different gun from the high end 1911's.  It is big, 6" barrel and weighs in at 45 1/2 oz.  They are really made for serious target work.

I have never had a Brown or Wilson.  Les Baer is in my metro area and I know Les through my work with the Friends of NRA.  In my opinion, Baer's guns are every bit as high quality as the others at about a grand less.  I have heard that the Baer guns are more accurate as that is Les's big thing.  He guarantees all his guns to shoot 3" at 50 yards and also sells guns with a 1 1/2" guarantee for $150 more.

Baer's problem is he does not offer many options as far as grips, sights, and coatings.  His business has been such that he is busy with his standard guns.  Lately he has been adding some options and is charging like the other high end guys for them.

In my opinion, the quality of the SIG Mastershop guns is every bit as good as the high end manufacturers in this country.  Their designs are really more conducive to higher accuracy in my opinion.  Being imported drives the price very high though.

I picked this up yesterday.  These Mastershop Sigs are the best shooting pistols that I have ever shot.

I have never seen one of the P220's from the Mastershop until this one.  It has the best trigger I have ever pulled.

Check out the test target, that's 5 shots at 5/8" at 25 meters.

I hope Alex at Williams can help out. If not, I'll give a look through my machinist's tool box from the shop and see if I happen to have one laying around. I can't guarantee anything, but I'll give it a whirl for you.
