Severe problem with my Scorpion

    Wasn't giving him "guff".... just going on the probability and likelihood of real world issues. Like I said, most guys won't admit the POSSIBILITY of shooter errors. Granted it could be wildly out of spec factory ammo OR a horribly fitted SS, but other issues would have arisen. From what I've seen, it's not necessarily repetitive after each shot either. Happens a LOT from the classes I've been in from guys that shoot thumbs forward on Glocks and transfer to 1911s.

    Don't need to be a "1911 armorer" to catch a loose plunger tube once and awhile.

    Ok,......that's a new one for me. I can understand this being an issue
    if it happened all the time. Buy occasionally,'s the shooter's input.

    You can easily replace that tube if you like, I am sure Sig will as well.

    Send it back to Sig. My 1911 Scorpion has been perfect. The factory mags didn't work for me either. I got come CMC Shooting Stars. Factory mags I only use for the range. 1911s are mag sensitive, even within the same brand/line.

    Better the gun fire and you run the risk of a little irritation as you defend yourself than spend the last few seconds of your like wondering why your safety isn't working.
