Magazine choices and custom grips
Thanks to you, I am now ready to get all the spare mags I need. But, I have hit a road block. The company has mags in the the capacities I want from Mec-Gar (Which are cheaper), and original factory SIG mags.
I know the importance of mags. They are as important as the gun itself. A bad mag makes a 100% reliable hangun or rifle, a jamming machine. I have seen the results first hand, and I need to know if the Mec-Gar are as sturdy and as reliable as factory made Sig magazines. Price is not a factor when it comes to my gun, and my life, that I trust my Sig to protect. I want the best. I want what will work in any scenario, whether it's self defense, practice, or competitions.
Also, I have been using a grip enhancer. It works great, giving me added control. I feel different grips might benefit me. I dont like rubber grips. I do like thier alluminum/wooden replacements though, and think they might be a viable option for me. Factory quote:
"Hogue Extreme series grips are machined from Aerospace grade 6061 T6 Aluminum, Titanium or old world Damascus steel. The Extreme series grips are the ultimate for the shooter that has everything! Extreme grips are available for most semi-auto pistols that Hogue currently makes and are carefully engineered and sized for the ultimate in fit, form and function. The strength of these materials allow for the thinnest possible grips on large double stack autos such as SIG pistols.
Extreme grips are precision machined from solid billet stock to exacting specifications and are designed for a lifetime of use. Aluminum grips are hard Type III anodized and available in 5 colors; Clear, Black, Red, Blue, and Green. Titanium and Damascus steel are polished to a high luster that accentuates the natural characteristics of the material.
Precision sharp, crisp checkering is available on aluminum models and Extreme Hybridô models are available with a textured Exotic Hardwood insert."
Has anyone bought these grips or used them on a Sig model? How do they perform?
I like metal grips and guns. I love the feel of 1911 30 LPI checkering on a gun. The Hogue alluminum grips look good, but looks are one thing. I don't want to waste money, and you guys always come through with good information. How good do their grips dig in? I want to feel a lot of bite in any grips I get whether metal or wooden checkered. Hopefully, not needing the aid of grip products, because the bad guy isn't going to give me time to apply the product on my hands before he tries to rape or rob me.
I need serious help, for these are serious issues.
