    martyd, If you read up here it seems the SIG 1911 is getting awesome reviews! I had just about 1k to spend and I went SIG. Some factors are they come with 2 stainless steel mags, as little as only 2 pieces of MIM, and are ready to fire out of the box. The SIG has a great feel too. My Scorpion came loaded with no add ons needed.

    I don't know anything about Colt other than they're old.

    martyd, here is a pic of my Scorpion. It is 1" total shorter than the full size. It has a 4.5 inch barrel.

    The Scorpion doesn't come in SS. Though I imagine it is SS just coated. I will have to double check it.

    Did yo ever look at the Sig C3 with Crimson Trace Sight? It is the same size as the Commander and has a great feel to it. It shoots like a charm too.

    This model was a special edition made by Sig. The made only about 500 of them with the black Crimson Trace Grips. I was in the market for a Colt but the feel of this beast stole my heart. Look at the web sight and you'll see a C3 with woodgrain style Crimson Trace Grips. BTW, I'm still gonna buy a Colt with this year's tax money

    It means, if it says "yes" that it's legal to own/sell in California, if "no" it is not legal to own or sell in California

    I map quest a gun shop only 5 miles from me. I e-mailed him last night and he has the Sig and the Colt. I do like that Sig C3, has all what i want plus the 3 dot. With 56 years old eyes, that white dot is needed.
    That Colt Commander -gold cup- wow.
    I been living here for 6 years and never know about this gun shop -5 miles . What a small world -3 years ago i was getting coff. one morn. n this guy didnt have any money on him n ordered a coff. -I payed it for him. Got to talking n he told me he had a gun shop [work from his house] This is the same gun shop im going to today. Let you know what i end up with.
    Guys -thank you so much-you pointed me to the right direction.
