If I'm going too get CTS it might as well be from doing what I like best, SHOOTING!!!!!The G10 trigger is a great improvement over the p238 & p938. However, i would not go so far as to say the grip is much better. It all depends on what model you get. Which also means the price can be more than just $80 higher.
Perhaps you meant on the base model?
The extreme and nightmare models have G10 grips made by Hogue. One of the more interesting ones that sig has is a desert tan with Hogue rubber grips. Great if you've had carpal tunnle.
Either way, the 911 is a great little pistol. My only recommendation is front slide serrations. On such a small platform every little bit of grip helps. This is what i like about the sig extreme series, but that would add another ~$120 and you get a plastic trigger. Its a shame the 911 didn't come out sooner.
I couldn’t shoot my 911 out of the box. It wouldn’t feed ANY ammo. I couldn’t have been more frustrated. So the day after I picked it up from my FFL, I took it back to him to send of to Springfield.Good read! I almost bought one of these but I decided to wait until I could find one in 9mm. (Still have not seen one) I also see people complaining about feeding issues on the .380 versions. Has anyone experienced this with the 380 or 9mm versions?
People laugh at those that carry a .22, so I checked muzzle energy for the 380 @90gr and it averages about 180-230fpe. Some of the .22 ammo is close too the same energy or is it a size complex. I'm not picking a fight, just wondering! I like the 10mm for those who choose too keep shooting at me 50 yards and beyond! Not "Too infinity and beyond!"

I have the 9119 and really love it but after 96 rounds the firing pin popped out. I did not use any +P ammo so I was confused as to why it popped out. Sent it into SA and it just came back -- I've cleaned it but haven't had the time to take it to the range yet -- heavy snow in my area the last few days. When I told my CCW instructor he thought I might need to use the SIG365 Ammo made for CCW and shorter barrel 9mm's.
I just purchased one in 9mm and no matter what ammo I throw in there, it will not feed. Nose of bullet below barrel EVERY TIME. Pretty pissedI couldn’t shoot my 911 out of the box.

I got it back in 2 weeks. They’d recut the chamber and polished the feed ramp. Racking it at the FFL it felt strange, and the slide lock kept creeping out, holding the slide open. I pulled off the slide...no slide stop retainer. I left it at the FFL. Springfield sent him a new slide stop retainer. Nonetheless, it pops out whenever I remove the slide. I bought 5 additional springs in case I ever lost one. I couldn’t get any of them to fit, so I just ran with the one that fits, but falls out every time I field strip the gun. I decided to ignore this...until today. So, nearly a year after I bought my Springfield 911 I dropped if off at FEDEX for its 2nd trip home. My wife was rather upset when I told her I was sending the 911 back to Springfield. She loves that gun. We own 4 other .380 ACPs, including 2 Kimber Micro 380s, a Baby Rock, and a Thunder 380, and none of them elicit any response from her. She loves the Springfield 911. Knowing this is the reason I decided to send it off for repair. I originally bought the 911 for her, so I’m pleased that she raised a fuss at losing it for up to a month. I just hope it comes back in perfect functioning order.
