I was referring to the full size models as I believe that is what the OP was considering. And the Sigs may not fit a hard plastic or kydex holster, but they will fit just fine in leather or nylon.

SIG, nuff said. Better warranty, VG customer service if you ever need it since the pistol is uber reliable.

I have both. Had an issue with the Sig. I sent it on a Thursday from Florida to NH. I had it the following Tuesday morning. Four days total, door to door. Outstanding pistol. The Fastback Carry is the most accurate pistol that I own. I have a lot of them I love this gun!

Both companies IMO are great as I have pistols in both brands and have never had any problems.
Not really sure on what a external extractor is?

You can see the extractor on the outside of the slide. In the photo it is the horizontal part that starts at the bottom left of the ejection port.

In this cut away you can see the extractor is on the inside of the slide.

picture of the internal extractor used on most 1911's. as far as i know, there are no real advantages or disadvantages of one over the other. now many prefer the internal extractor simply from a cosmetic standpoint, because that's what 1911's have had from the beginning. i prefer the looks of the internal, and that's my reason, purely cosmetic and in keeping the more traditional look of a 1911.

1. Sig Sauer 1911 Scorpion

or

2. Kimber Desert Warrior
http://www.kimberamerica.com/1911/custom-ii/desertwarrior

prices are roughly the same...

which one would you pick and why?

I've had no luck with Kimbers over the years. Had two and they where not near worth the troubles I had. I've shot a couple friends that where pretty good but I wont spend money on another one. I'll stick to about everything else. I've yet to own or even see a bad Sig.
