Sig Scorpion 1911




I recently ran across a Sig 1911, 5 inch style with night sights, that a fellow wanted to trade. I have to admit, it is a good looking pistol. I know Sig has an amazing reputation, and the Sig i had performed flawlessly. I wanted to see if anyone here has shot one, or owned one, and what their thoughts were on this 1911? If it is any help, this is not my first 1911, have two others, colt and springfield. Thanks for the time!

Have a Sig Scorpion and a Sig XO. Both are outstanding guns. You cannot go wrong with getting a Sig 1911.

Thanks for all the input! What is your feeling on an external extractor?

Sigs have them. Sigs work extremely well. Sems like that is enough to answer the extractor question.

I recently bought the 4.25 model and love it. It shoots like a beauty. My front sight tritium went dead only after a month and change, and is currently with Sig for replacement but that seems to be an isolated incident.

Had a para for less that 30 days that the Trijicon insert fell out on the range while shooting so...... again an isolated incident.

I almost bought the scorpion model. It was between that and the Nitron Extreme, they seem very similar besides the finish.

I have a sig scorpion 1911 and have been very pleased. It feels extremely good in the hand, the grips are one of the best parts about the gun. It feels extremely solid and locks up very tight. I personal like a gun with a tight fit and finish and sigs fit the bill. I've put about 500 rounds down range and had one FTE in the first 50 rounds. The gun had been a great shooter and a lot of fun. Not to mention the looks are very different than traditional 1911s.
