    Sig Sauer Scorpion

    I picked up a Sig Sauer Scorpion 1911 a couple weeks ago, and got out to the range to shoot it this past Sunday.

    This is a great gun. Very smooth trigger, very accurate even with the cheap range ammo I was shooting. Consistently hitting at 25 yds with nice grouping. The gun is comfortable in my big hands, but I think with a little smaller hands it might be a bit big. Not nearly as bad as a doublestack 45, but a bit thicker than my springfield 1911.

    If youre in the market for a nice 1911 give it a look.

    I was thinking this should be my next gun (or a 226 in .357) until I realized I didn't have near enough money to get either of them.

    They have gotten great reviews in some magazines I read at walmart.

    The Scorpion was just on the cover of the Feb 2012 edition of Combat Handguns Magazine. The author of the article, Andy Massimilian, spoke very highly of the T & E gun he received. I've never been crazy about external extractors, but according to Sig, it makes their particular 1911 gun more reliable than an internal one would, and I figure they would know that better than I. My local dealer had a Sig 1911 "POW MIA edition" in a couple weeks ago, that also included a K-Bar knife. It was without a doubt one of the coolest guns I've ever seen from a production company, but I was looking for another commander to carry and this was certainly not a carry gun.

    To the OP, Did the one you purchased come with the G10 Hogue Piranha grips with the magwell?

    Yes it did come with the Hogue grips. They grip really do grip your hand with the aggressive pattern they put on it.

    Sounds like a nice gun. Got any pictures?

    NIce.

    I checked one out at the gun store last week. Awesome gun. I was highly impressed. I think that will be my next 1911. Ambi-safety was on point (I"m a lefty) sights, feel, weight, rail-system was looking nice. the one I played with was OD green. not my first choice but it was quality all around. enjoy.
