50th birthday present to myself!
 
Turning 50 and financially sound, looking for opinions on 1911's. Wanting a higher end model than my Kimber Custom II.

I've been looking at Sig Scorpion. What do you all think? I know this is a loaded question so be gentle and play nice!

Thanks

Happy Birthday.
High end Colt.

Happy birthday and I haven't seen a sig 1911 I don't like. Black AND stainless has a classy look to me.

play the victim, be the victim

Ed brown w/ Wilson combat mags couldn't go wrong. http://www.edbrown.com/
They will send you a free catalog w/ lots of pictures to help you decide what you want.

I just traded off my last two Kimbers, bought Colts, why pay more to IMHO get anything that would add anything to it's ability to shoot.

My choice would be the Les Baer BOSS 45.

losack, I love my Sig Scorpion Carry! Just love it! Everything already on it not much to add or say about it.

Here's the range report from this sight I posted shortly after I bought mine.

You will love this firearm! Sig got it right.

Great report. That gun is definitely top three. I love the looks of it.

Thanks for the report.
