Our Assessment: Sig has long been a quality handgun manufacturer, with their P-series pistols some of the most popular on the market. Still, even Sig knows that there’s something timeless about the 1911. This is their take on the compact 1911, with a series ’80 firing pin block, and external extractor. This pistol features a railed frame, commander length slide, front and rear slide serrations, and the sleek modernized lines Sig 1911s are known for combined with the timless ergonomics and trigger pull. Finished with a custom Flat Dark Earth PVD finish, the Scorpion Carry stands out from the crowd. Extremely durable and wear resistant, the physical vapor deposition is corrosion resistant, and provides a stunning look to Scorpion variants. Rounding out the look, each Scorpion is fitted with dark Piranha textured G-10 grips and dark controls. Forward cocking serrations and SIGLITE night sights complete the package. It is in Excellent condition with a great bore and comes with two magazines to get you started. If you don’t have a 1911 or if you don’t have a Sig, this pistol can check both boxes and will make a great shooter for years to come. Please see our photos and good luck!
