Picked up my firs Sig on Saturday

Hi all, new here but not to forums.

I have an XDm with a PRP trigger and Dawson night sites. I love it, it's a great weapon. But there's just something about Sig, especially their 1911s that I just love.

I was going to get a Scorpion, but when I saw this, I fell in love. It's the Scorpions brother; the Extreme. The trigger is probably the best stock trigger I've felt for a non custom pistol. It is so crisp with virtually no take up. Reset is instant. I feel like I got a decent deal on it, too.

If you want more pics, let me know.





I still would like a Scorpion, and know where a 4" model is. Are the 4" as reliable as the full size?

Welcome shatnerglass. Very nice 1911. Got to be loving those G10 grips, right?

Thanks. And yes, the grips are beautiful. They look like they'd hurt for daily carry, but with a proper holster it's fine.

Thanks, Paperchasin! I've been so damn busy, but I'll be going shooting on Thursday. Going to be taking my Colt M4, PS90, XDm and my Sister will bring her S&W M&P Shield 9mm- sweet little gun!

shatnerglass,

Welcome to the Forum! I am still new here myself but I do like this Forum a lot.

The new Sig is rea beauty, and she should be a very nice pistol! Keep us posted on how well she shoots! If she is like other Sigs, she will be accurate.

A nice 1911 single action trigger can have a huge effect on how you feel about DA triggers with slack and reset.

Hmmm... just when I though I had my mind set on my first 1911 to purchase this year- Springfield TRP. Then I see this... decisions, decisions.

Great looking 1911, congrats!

Honestly never shot a DA. I'm not super green with firearms, but I didn't grow up with them. Bought my first handgun ~ 8 years ago, when I was 21. A Glock 26; hated it and quickly sold it. Have had a shotgun, but just recently (January) got back in to pistol shooting with an XDm compact 9mm. I've been in lust w/ 1911s for a while now, though.

You can't go wrong with a Springfield or a Sig, imo. The TRP is a NICE 1911. Maybe nicer than the Extreme. But I was set on the Sig. The TRP was quite a bit more coin, too.

Just got back from the range. Put 100 rounds through it. Man, it's a sweet shooter! I know what I'm using for my CHL class on May 7th. It just shoots where it's pointed. Now I see the appeal of the 1911.
