Trigger job on my SIG 1911
I am looking to put the same trigger on the SIG Scorpion ( flat trigger ) on my SIG Nitron commander.

I consider a novice a master when it comes to working on a gun. So my question is, can i do it? Or off to the gunsmith

If its exactly the same aside from the trigger profile itself. It should basically just drop in.

I'm not sure if the Sig internals are the same? If they are it is not to hard. The hardest part is the sear and disconnector. You may have to fit the trigger, be careful when you file it. Lot easier to take off metal than put it back on. There are some okay videos on YouTube.

Drop-in still may need to be fitted.

First, make sure the trigger bow is the same length as the one coming out (that takes care of sear/disconnector).
Second, most aftermarket triggers require some filing on the trigger pad. This is the time and patience issue. Use the file and for every swipe on the top, swipe one on the bottom.
Trial fitting as you go is the rule.

It should "drop" when the frame is pointed nose down.

Check that the trigger bow does not interfere with a magazine. That will increase the trigger pull.
