    I just picked up my SIG STX and it is a beautiful pistol, i haven't shot it yet but will shoot it by next month

    my gunshop ordered one dircetly from SIG and one of the things i was surprised by was my STX had a rail, I can live with that it has a good look to it

    something i am concerned about is the scratches on the trigger, i have never seen this before and wanted to know from the experts is that normal

    it's fairly common, especially on production guns.

    if it bothers you, get a trigger track stone from Brownell's and go to work knocking the burr's off, then install a flat trigger :supergrin:

    thanks Quack, I don''t think i will be changing the trigger anytime soon, I just changed out the grip and handguard on my AR and thought I had accomplished a goal on the scale of the Hoover Dam

    What happened with your STX having a rail is this. The STX frame set was made with a rail by mistake. Instead of scraping the whole order, Sig decided to build an order of STX's with a rail. Since the frames and slides are matched, they couldn't just replace the frames with non railed frames. So you got a STX with a rail. This is my guess.

    The scratches are due to burrs in the trigger opening. You can file it, stone it or sandpaper it smooth and then take a SS wire brush to the trigger and maybe it will come out. If not, try scotch brite pads or bead blast the trigger.

    so i'm the only person in the world with a STX w/rail, maybe BAC will make a exception for this one :supergrin:

    to file,stone, sandpaper, and wire brush the trigger i'm guessing i would have to remove the trigger from the handgun first?

    It looks good, rail or not.

    Congrats on a nice 1911. In fact, its Sig's best model.

    I don't think you are the only person who got a railed STX. They probably made an entire order of them by mistake.

    Yes, you would need to remove the trigger to fix it.
