    I was very excited to find this in my buddy's shop. Its a SIG Scorpion 1911 with the traditional slide profile, the G10 magwell grips and mainspring housing, and sans rail. I have wanted the scorpion for some time. But I didn't want a railed one. I didn't even know they made one without the rail and the normal 1911 slide profile is a rare find too.

    Good lookin' gun! I'd never seen a non-railed Scorpion before, either.

    Nice find. Clean lines and no rail makes for one nice looking SIG.

    Is that full sized, or is it commander size?

    Love the lack of rail!!! Nice clean lines.

    Its the commander sized model. I would have prefered the government size model but as I had never before seen the traditional slide profile scorpion and lack of the rail; I jumped on it!

    My P220 carry is almost commander length, and it also came without the rail. Sig seems to produce the commander-sized variants without the rail. Interesting.

    What's the actual Sig sku / model number on that 1911. ?

    I have the "carry" version of the 1911 Scorpion, but I like the non-railed dust cover on yours.

    I had a Scorpion, and sold it. Not because it's not a nice pistol, but because I really wanted the Ruger. I was happy with the Sig, I am just as happy with the Ruger, so it worked out.
