Sig Scorpion 1911




Hi! This is my first 1911 and I thought I would introduce myself... My name is Kawai and I am a full time student. I am pursuing a degree in nursing (BSN). Now lets get to the gun.... I've always wanted a 1911, but never quite know which one to choose from until I saw this one. I have always owned a firearm that was in black, this was by far out of the norm for me. But I love it none-the-less!!



Had to change out the trigger and the hammer... I didn't think it flowed with the silver trigger and hammer look. So I got these instead...

STI Trigger
Wilson Combat Hammer

The gun shoots awesome!!! But I do have a question for you experts. I have put about 200 rds through it yesterday. Using Remington UMC and PMC ammunition. Towards the end of the session, I had about 2 misfeeds and a few fail to eject.... Is there a break in period or should I send it back?? Thanks in advance!

Love the new black bits! I've often thought the tacops would look better with similar changes. Does not having them installed at Sig affect the warranty at all?

Thanks! I was just wondering if anyone else have this issue.

Well about 200rds in a session it might have just been a little dirty or a little dry. Could be as simple as slapping a little lube on it and keeping it moving.

The black parts look good. I like my flat trigger, though...might need to look for one in black.

Agreed. One failure to feed happened with my new Carry Scorpion the other day. I had only put 150 rounds through it before last week. Then I put 4 boxes through it in one session. I think it was a little dry and a little dirty.

The flat silver trigger always bothered me on the scorpion, the black looks awesome!

Thanks everyone!!! I will try to go back out to the range this weekend and put a few more rounds through it and see what will happen.

What exact trigger size is it? Is it the one designed for single stack 1911's? I'm thinking about getting a black one too, but I'm unsure of the design

This is not where I got it from, but it does have a good picture to show you.

http://1911store.com/browseproducts/...gger--STI.HTML

So I got the STI long curved and I had the gunsmith adjust it to a 3lbs pull.

There is also a Wilson Combat one that is pretty cool as well....

Love to see which one you decide! Good luck!
