Boy-oh-boy do we have a doozie for you all of you wacky shooters today!! It’s been a while since we let you guys in the vault and we thought that this puppy would be the perfect return!!! In this edition of From the Vault we’d like to introduce you to our newest toy: the Sig Sauer Ultra-Compact 1911 chambered in 9mm!!! If you thought we loved our Sig’s thus far, you have no earthly idea!!!!
Over the past few years we’ve given our readers a host of information on the venerable 1911 platform, so we won’t bother you guys with the historical renditions and get right into this little guy!!! The Ultra Compact 1911 by Sig Sauer is a thinking man’s gun if you will. It truly takes an operator to use the 1911 effectively and efficiently and this little version of the full size takes no shorts!
The Ultra Compact is fitted with the tightest of tolerances to ensure that the gun runs with superior effectiveness when you need it to. Besides being Ultra Compact, the gun is ultra sleek and feels great in the hand. Impressive internal components like the super thick bull barrel and crisp trigger made this a must have to our collection!! The gun comes new with 2 magazines (8 round capacity) that seem to be pretty serviceable. Although at first touch it seems a little on the weighty side, with practice and consistent carry, we don’t see this as being a problem. After all, the more weight on these little guys the less they rock and roll when shooting!
Sig did a wonderful job with the finish; that two-toned appearance gives it an official look! An external extractor, generous beaver-tail, and SigLite Night Sights make this an extraordinary pistol!! As you can see, we don’t mind getting this little guy dirty, and neither should you!!!

We want to thank you for taking out the time to stop by our lane at the shooting range!! We hope that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you stop back by early and often to catch up on all PSA updates! We truly hope that we were able to hit the target, and if you ever have any questions please don’t hesitate to shoot them our way!! We look forward to shooting the breeze with you soon again!!
And as always….remember to watch your six and stay low!!!
