With products ranging from full-sized tactical guns to ultra-compact carry pistols, Sig Sauer’s 1911s were designed to offer something for every 1911 fan. An excellent example of this is the Carry Scorpion, a 1911 with the company’s distinctive 1911 visual style with its pronounced and squared slide top. This one is worth a look for anyone interested in a defensive or tactical 1911 pistol.
The Carry Scorpion features a 4.2-inch barrel and is made with a stainless steel frame and slide, which are finished in Cerakote, an ultra-durable ceramic coating built to withstand the rigors of today’s “sandbox” urban-warfare theaters. Weighing in at just over 35 ounces empty, the gun has the heft you’d expect from a 1911 without earning the unfortunate designation of “unwieldy.”
