The Carry Stainless is a good-looking handgun that may not be completely traditional 1911 in appearance but then it isn’t a Firestar either! This is a credible and reliable handgun.
The frontstrap checkering and grip checkering are so well done they seem to blend seamlessly together.
The backstrap is also nicely checkered. It is easy to hold and shoot rapid fire.
The SIG slide profile differs from the standard 1911, but just the same, the pistol fits in this Wild Bill’s belt slide, a tightly molded holster.
The SIG uses the standard barrel bushing/barrel lockup. This is the shortest 1911 that works well with this design.
The front sight is secured with a dovetail slot.
