SIG P220 Scorpion???

So I am looking at the SIG P220's in .45. Pretty slick looking guns. Not much of a pistol guy so what do you guys think about them? From what I know sig is a somewhat reputable brand. Also, what is yall's opinion on their 1911's?

My P220 is one of my favorite pistols. You will not go wrong with one in my personal opinion.

I have heard good things about the Sig 1911, but I do not have one. All my Sigs have been good to me.

I have several p220's I think they are fine weapons and I think you will really like it.
I like the looks Scorpion I may pick one up as soon as all shortages for stuff get over. Like my wife says ya like you need another gun. I just reply well honey how pairs of shoes do you need! That went over real well.

I have a 1911 Scorpion and it shoots ridiculously well. I also had a P220 some years back that was an excellent gun. I imagine the offspring of the two would be equally cool.

I have looking at the carry 1911 scorpion. Kind of skeptical though because I have had TERRIBLE luck with 1911's (taurus, kimber)...

I have one on my ' to get' list..

I almost got an older stainless P220 nib, it wound up having a deposit on it

So a Berreta 92 fs inox followed me home instead

I have a P220 and a Sig 1911.

Both shoot great. The 1911 has never had a hiccup.

Is your 1911 accurate?

I have a P220, but with the stainless frame (making it a noticeably heavier). I love it, but it's a pretty big gun. Compare it with an E2 grip version (which feels more ergonomic). A lot of ppl I know prefer them.

I have the stainless frame on ALL the Sigs I shoot. I only have one (P226 ) with an alloy frame. The P226, P220,P229 that I shoot are all stainless.

I agree they are heavy. The P220 and the P229 are just right.

The P220 has a great rep. My Sig 1911 (the small Ultra) has been fantastic.

I'm currently toying with the idea of picking up a .45 and a suppressor, and I'm bouncing back and forth between a P220 and a Sig 1911... just hard to go wrong there.
