The “Nitron” isn’t some glitzy name, it’s the type of finish as opposed to “stainless”. The grips are Nill “The Master” target grips, walnut I believe. I wasn’t sure I would like them, but they feel great and the gun really fits my hand. I’m hoping to take it for a spin this weekend.

I don’t know the MSRP. I’ve seen from $1649 to $2055 and the street prices of $1499 and $1599 for the stainless and one Nitron that went so fast I hardly blinked. It was on GB for a few seconds at $1299 then was taken down. I suspect it sold locally or they decided they could get more for it and took the ad down.

Here are some rather less than stellar pictures. I didn’t do anything to the gun and these were taken on the floor without any light tent, just room lighting.

I also didn’t do anything to the gun; didn’t wipe it down with oil or anything, so, it’s as it came out of the plastic.

I don’t see a thang wrong wit dat pistol, Sigwolf.  She looks purty nice to me. The grip dress ain’t so special but if it works that’s all that counts..  Lets know how she handles when spittin fire out dat pipe…

Very nice pistol, and I like the grips. Most Sigs fit my hand very well, although I’ve never owned one.

That is a SWEET-looking Sig!!!!!!  Those grips are yummy.

I love my Sig Sauer C3 4.25″.  Scary accurate. Great feel.

I really like the look of those Nils, the slight palm swell looks pretty interesting. The wood appears to extend below the frame, is it “mag well” functional?

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Yes, it is a magwell function and the palm swell really makes it fit my hand well. They are Nills as you say, called “The Masters” target grips. These particular ones also have a SIG log as you can see.

Here are some more pictures. These slightly better, but still suffer from a lack of good strong defused light. The background also sort of sucks.

Very nice SIGWolf!

 

I have an early Sig GSR Revolution.  I never did get a good picture of it…maybe some day in the future.

In my great gun safe purge, the Para Ordnance Tac-Four and the AMT Javelina 10mm in this picture found new homes, but I kept the Sig GSR and Dan Wesson Panther.

I’ve gone through a few purges myself.

Initally I sold the original series GSR I had. Then in early 2014 I found I really missed it and ended up buying not one, but two. They are both going off the Gray Guns for evaluation and a rebuilt on one of them. Both guns have been flawless and I really love shooting them. I’m looking to turn one into a “custom” gun.

I finally took it to the range last week, Monday!

The gun was flawless from round one! I put 150 rounds through it without even the hint of a hiccup. I didn’t have a rest, but a shoot from a sitting position resting the butt of the fun on the shooting bench. Unfortunately, I was wearing the wrong glasses and the front sight takes some getting used to. Not to mention I am cross eye dominant. Sometimes I can switch to the right eye and sometimes not, Monday was a “not” day.

As a result, I don’t think I was able to get the accuracy out of the gun of which it is evidently capable based on a couple of groups I had. I did find that the rear sight does stick a bit when adjusting. I was reluctant initially to really “give it a go” but finally did.

I hope to get out again and give it a real run for it’s money in the accuracy department. However, it will have to wait a couple of weeks. Our range allows hunting during “rifle season” which is the rifle phase of deer season here. The range is closed for two weeks. Winter is also coming to the NE. We had “first snow” on Friday. It was just a dusting, but it’s an indication of things to come. Shooting in sub-freezing weather becomes more difficult, sub-zero is even more so. 

Although some of the nicest days I’ve spent at the range were quiet days, with a light snow falling and hardly anyone else there.
