    Hi there! I got a SigArms GSR Revolution 1911 on a trade recently that, after doing more research, I realized just how nice of a handgun it really was. Frankly I'm not entirely sure I believe some of the Gunbroker and other values I've found for this handgun, but I can tell it's very well made. So I've come to the appraisals section here to ask... what's my 1911 worth? What would be a reasonable price to value/ask for this LNIB gun?

    It's only had 150 rounds fired through it. I'm the third owner. The first never shot it, the second fired the first 100 rounds, and I've fired the last 50. It has never jammed. It is as-featured in the attached photo. It is quite accurate, from what I've seen of its performance. The Novak night sights work quite well.

    EDIT: I am so blind. I didn't see that the person I'd gotten this handgun from had posted the same thread. My bad. But still, hey! A final value was never really decided on, so I'd still like some more thoughts on the matter.

    I will repeat what I said in the other thread: If the gun runs I would not worry about "its" value and just shoot it.

    It is not an original GSR. The original GSRs had a manhole cover. If it was and original GSR and it ran well it would be worth more to the right buyer. The original GSR was built on a Caspian frame with a Storm Lake barrel etc... when they ran they were amazing modern tack drivers. The problem was too many had issues. I had one but the extactor pin walked out on me and Sig replaced. They would not send me one and let me stake it. At that point I sold it. Should have kept it but that was around the time I lost faith in Sig.

    The Revolution pistols were the first gen of 1911s from Sig using in house parts. They seemed to run better. I would say they are $500 to $600 guns used in a private transaction. $250-$300 to a shop who will resell it at $550. The GSR logo detracts from the value IMHO. You might get lucky if you are not in a rush to sell and find the right collector who has a whole in their collection.

    I can't add anything to @wvsig. I had two; a first-gen, and one a newer "Revolution". I had an issue with the newer one, had to send it back, but they got it back quickly. Slide-frame fit. I will say both of them had the best (to me; it's qualitative) out-of-the-box triggers I have ever had on a 1911. SIG's 1911s are also just a bit different with frame dimensions, so it's a bit harder to find a holster. You can't get a generic 1911 holster.

    I'd say value is about $500-$600, and no way I would sell to a gun shop, where you'd get half that.
