SIG SAUER® Introduces the New 1911 Max, Built to Winning Specifications
Competition pistol designed by world speed shooting champion, Max Michel, Jr.
SIG SAUER Team Captain Max Michel, Jr., has brought his winning ways and experience to work with SIG engineers in the development of the 1911 Max, a race-inspired pistol built to his unique specifications. Built by the SIG SAUER Custom Shop, the 1911 Max is a single-stack, 5″ all-steel pistol with all the custom features that a world-class shooter requires.
“We’re proud to be associated with a competitor of Max’s skill and character,” Bud Fini, Vice President of Marketing. “He also brings years of elite-level match experience, which is incorporated in this pistol.”
A Nitron-finished stainless slide features forward cocking serrations, on top of a natural stainless frame with 26LPI checkering on the front strap. Max’s “MM” logo is custom engraved on the slide and machined into the Hogue® custom G-10 “Chainlink” grips, which offer a very aggressive, non-slip surface to the shooter.
“I’m pretty particular about what goes into my guns,” Michel said. “In my world, a broken part or a malfunction could end my shot at a world title. I wouldn’t put my name on a gun unless I was certain it would measure up to my standards.”
Built to Michel’s specifications, the 1911 Max has a host of custom features, including SIG SAUER flat trigger, external extractor, a Dawson® Ice Magwell®, a Koenig® Speed Hammer® and EGW® sear and firing pin. Fiber optic front and adjustable rear sights also provide high-speed visibility.
