I don't believe there's a problem dry firing a 1911. I do mine.

I have dry fired my 1911 as many if not more times than I have live fired it (3000+ rounds) and never had any problem... Mine is a Springfield 1911-A1 and came factory with a titanium firing pin as I would hope the Sig did as well... Nice piece! Be careful of the infamous 1911 "idiot mark" didn't have anyone to introduce me when I put mine back together the first or second time and it reminds me of it every day when I strap it on... :-(

I think he's talking about the scratch you can get from reinserting the slide stop pin if your not careful.

That's exactly what I mean! Sorry for not elaborating, mine isn't awful like some that I have seen, but it's pretty noticeable... Guess that's how some lessons are best learned!

My Scorpion was tough to put back together too so I can understand how it happens.

Take a playing card and cut a small piece to go on the frame when you insert it the 1st couple of times. Aster a while you'll get used to the process and not need it.
