Hey everyone, new user from the damp oregon woods. Just picked up my first sig sauer firearm a couple days ago, and was blessed with a few hours of rare sunshine this afternoon that gave me a chance to put it through its paces. Holy smokes, what a lovely pistol! It's one of the new Talo model 226 ase's, essentially identical to the elite stainless, but with the alloy frame. I had a chance to try out a friend's legion, and liked it, but I'm a woodworker, so I'm kind of a sap for purty wood grips, so I was stoked to see the new talo model. Seemed like the perfect cross between the 226 sse and the Legion (and a little cheaper to boot!). After about 500 rounds, I'm as happy as a hog in slop! I fed it seven different types of ammo: 115 gr blazer and independence fmj plinkers, 147 gr win fmj's and jhp's, Hornady critical defense 115 gr ftx, critical duty +p 135 gr flexlocks and (my favorites) American gunner +p 124 gr xtp. It ate everything with ZERO issues. The short reset trigger feels silky smooth and spent rounds landed in a nice orderly pile. The grip is a little bulkier than I'm used to (my primary pistols are S&W 1911 e series and 686 revolver), but it points and shoots really naturally. I could babble on like a schoolgirl, but I'm curious if anyone else has any feedback on this model. I'm thinking my next buy may have to be a sig in the 1911 family. The nightmare fastback looks pretty snazzy, as does the emperor scorpion. Any suggestions for a newbie?

Welcome. I recently purchased the 1911 Nightmare Fastback edition in 357 sig. it really makes me look like a great shooter. Extremely accurate and extremely fun.

Pictures.... it cycled through all seven of these different ammo types with no problems of any kind. Best group came from the Hornady 'American Gunner' +p 124 gr xtp's, but that could easily chalked up to blind luck on the part of the operator. At $17-23/box I didn't get too carried away with testing the Hornady rounds!
