Sig Sauer POW MIA 1911
Sig Sauer has got a very special 1911 coming out soon, the Sig Sauer 1911 POW MIA. This new commemorative 1911 pays tribute to all the brave men and women that have served in our armed forces and were unfortunate enough to become prisoners of war, or become missing in action. We used to keep a table open at all of our events when I served in the military, dedicating such table for those POWs and MIAs to ensure they were never forgotten; now Sig has a pistol doing the same.
The new Sig Sauer 1911 POW MIA pistol is a traditional full sized 1911 that shares some attributes similar to the Sig TACOPS we reviewed such as an external extractor and SIGLITE Night Sights. The real distinct features of the SIG 1911 POW MIA are on the slide, which has barbed wire engraved along its length, along with highly polished engravings of the American Flag and dog tags. The feature that most stands out is the custom Hogue aluminum POW MIA “You Are Not Forgotten” logo grips. But the real icing on the cake is that the Sig 1911 POW MIA comes with a custom Ka-Bar knife with the same logo engraved on it. Along with that, the Sig POW MIA 1911 comes with a Pelican locking case and a certificate of authenticity. Although this Sig 1911 has all the indications that it would be one helluva gun to shoot, I feel that most would keep it as a safe queen, or on a mantel (with a trigger lock on, be responsible guys) for all to view to remember our POWs, MIAs, and all the brave men and women that have served America.
