Sig Scorpion 1 time out range report

went today and took my Scorpion "as is" out of the box.

I hear people saying "you gotta get it home. You gotta clean and lube it. SIG guns needs lots of lube." B.S. I think.

The 1911 is a combat gun. And I wanted to treat it like one. Since SIG moved to being built in the States. I dont think SIG uses its famous "to hell and Back" motto. But I wanted to see if it lived up to its past glory.

I went to the range with 3 different ammos. 1 Winchester .45 Hollow point 230 gr. The thing about this hollow point ammo is the cavity is huge. 2nd ammo was Winchester 230 gr ball ammo. White box. 3rd kind of ammo was Hornady's 185 gr. Zombie ammo.

Now remember this gun is factory dirty with nothing done to it except picking it up and pulling the trigger.

160 rounds of all 3 ammos combined. Using the 2 factory mags only.

100% perfection!! From the 1st round to the very last. 160 trigger pulls, 160 rounds down range. Now sometimes somebody will say that i FTF or SP but they'll blame themselves and not the gun. none of that. 160 trigger pulls 160 pieces of lead on paper.

The very first magazine was 1 handed. Butter! I shot low and to the right. then I shot low. By the end i was on target doing not tight groups, but all on target center of mass chest to belly button. I'll continue to work on sight picture.

All brass was in one pile at the end of day. Perfect ejection every time. No brass to face or down back of shirt.

Sorry no pics. I have no camera! Anybody please feel free to send me your beater camera if you got a new one for Christmas!

In closing, The Scorpion and its factory magazines performed flawlessly! The mag eject pushed the empty magazine out with ease every time. I love this gun.

Same with mine only with one magazine it refused to lock back after the last round was expended... and the only round i had that wouldn't chamber was an old semi-wad cutter I had floating in the car I didn't have any of his friends to verify it was seated properly but that's the only fail to feed I had with my 1911 Scorpion Carry.

Congratulations on the performance of your new acquisition! I have experienced similar results with all of my centerfire Sig's. My Mosquito is a totally different story.

Sweet to hear about your 1911, and with the mosquito I hear all .22 pistols are generally finicky with ammo. Last time out with my wife's new one federal was just to dirty after 5 mag loads I had to clean the gun. Nest time we have cci mini mags to shoot.
