Are MIM parts used in these or not? I have heard and read both.
Thanks

The newer Kimbers have them. Bought one for cheap because the extractor went missing, well that and it was a .17 caliber 1911.

As far as a Sig, I'm fairly certain the X-Five doesn't have them.



My other Sig is a Steyr...

Or: Ford vs Chevy.
Or: 30-06 vs .270.

no debate, no ford, or Harley oil, a very simple question:
Are MIM parts used in a Sig 1911? yes or no?

there is money riding on this(not much $ but a little)

Yes. I worked on one my son bought a couple of years ago. Pretty outside, MIM parts were dismal. Rough surface on disconnector was scratching back of trigger bow. Sides of sear were not parallel. Hammer hooks were about 15 thou' too high for lots of creep. Ir would have cost about $125 to replace those parts with machined (at least good parts are available at reasonable cost on 1911's - - I spent several hours cleaning up and truing existing parts (I work cheap), but it would have made more sense just to replace the fire control parts.

Not intending to fuel the MIM debate. That won't stop mfgs from cutting costs.

BTW, the gun, using all stock parts, did end up with a very nice trigger - I even modified the trigger bow to eliminate pre-travel. I still would fork over the extra $3 or 4 bills and get a CZ DW - before SIG's 1911 offering. I do like the Classic P legacy slides though.

It depends, on model and / or date of manufacture. Generally speaking, SIG-procured mim is qualitatively very good to excellent in their 1911's.

And that's coming from me, not historically a big fan of the process.
