SIG Sauer 1911 Carry Scorpion 1911CAR-45-SCPN 45 ACP, $1213 (Grade: B+ 2014)

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The SIG Carry Scorpion is a reliable, accurate, and powerful handgun. The SIG proved quite accurate; it simply wasn’t as accurate as the Kimber pistol. The addition of Cerakote coating and a frame rail may cause some shooters to lean toward buying the Scorpion. The G10 scaled grips were a good feature. If you want a 1911 rail gun, then the Scorpion is a good choice.

SIG’s Scorpion resembles other SIG products, but it is all 1911 in handling and performance.
The SIG’s ambidextrous safety is much smaller than the Kimber, but it did the job.
The Scorpion’s forward cocking serrations are modest and unobtrusive.
The SIG front strap is nicely checkered. The Piranha grips were also highly rated.
The SIG’s grips and checkering gave good purchase. The small safety levers were surprisingly effective.
