    I can get these pistols for pretty much $50 from each other. Knowing that they seem to be in the same league of each other as far as 1911's go. They are both 4.25 barrel length with commander frame. Only difference that I know of is that the scorpion having a flat trigger(plus) and cerakote. Other than that I don't know what other build differences there are.. Another one I was eyeballing is the Sig Carry Nightmare, but can't seem to find it anywhere for sale. Probably cause it's too new...

    So what would you choose between the two aforementioned pistols, and why?

    I have the Scorpion full Sized, with it's mag well built in the Scorpion is a tad larger to conceal, but it is my EDC.
    I love the grips feel, and it gives you the ability to attach a light..(scorpion)

    Unless you're going to carry with a light attached, then what's the point of the rail?

    I know it's not the only gun you have, so unless you're also going to use it as a night stand gun, then go with the regular Sig.

    Do you already have holsters for the railed pistol?

    Are you sure that they are officer frames? I thought they were full sized frames at least for the grip part.

    Oops. Error on my part. I meant Commander sized frame. Although Sig does make a Officer frame with 4.25inch barrel, the C3 and RCS.

    I had been thinking about getting a 1911, but I've never had much luck getting one to run for me in the past. I have a friend who recommended the Sig, so I reluctantly bought the Carry Nitron. I took her to the range and gave her a little workout. I ran 500 rounds of 185 and mostly 230 ball, ran 100%. Then I ran another 200 rounds of hollowpoints comprised of 185, 200+P, 230 GDHP, 185 and 230 GS BJHP, 230 SXT and 230 HST. Again she ran 100%. The quality and workmanship is very nice, the pistol has a nice trigger too. To say the least, I'm very impressed and this will not be my last 1911!

    I love the Sig 1911's. I have an earlier 1st gen model w/the manhole cover. Pistol is very tight, which really worried me at first. But I must have got a good one because it's been flawless. Don't care for the rail though. Was also a pain in the ass to find holsters for in the beginning.

    I'm not a big railed pistol fan, so I'd go with the Carry.

    Agreed, unless you're LE and going to carry it on duty.

    I didn't like the appearance of the new Sig 1911 when they first hit the market, but after handling one recently at a gun show, it's hard not to like them, especially the Carry Nitron.
    Smooth lines, well fitted and finished, and a solid constructed feel.

    If I buy another 1911 in the near future, it would be the Carry Nitron.

    I've got the railed Nitron and Love it!! I have a blackhawk serpa holster that handles the rail fine and also a king tuk holster that does handle it fine as well. It's a great shooter...You'll love it. I bought mine new and took it to a training class...3 days...1200 rounds and the only issue I had was the stock mags that came with it. Junk! Thankfully I had plenty of other mags and no more problems since.

    I have heard some sig 1911's have problems with the slide going back into battery when it's hot and dirty. Anyone have experience with this? They say to use a stronger recoil spring to remedy the issue.
