    Just added a Sig RCS Nitron. Overall I'm decently impressed with the fit and finish. Trigger is a tad soft, but not bad. I'll put up a range report in the thread when I shoot it. I've ordered some Altamont black walnut crock back grips. I'll post a few new shots when they get in.

    Very nice. I have always liked the look of the Sigs but have never gotten a chance to shoot one. Congrats on the new addition.

    The intent on this one is to turn it into a carry piece when wearing t-shirt and shorts type attire. I normally wear jeans and a button down shirt but in the summer it's just too damn hot around here. It'll need to prove itself first though.

    Looks great. I know a few guys running full size Sig 1911's and it feels like their slides are on ball bearings. If their smaller version is anything like those you should be very happy.

    Here are updated pics with the Altamont Dark Walnut CrocBacks

    As far as the range report:

    I put 200 WWB and 50 GoldDot 230Gr downrange. Overall it performed well, but there were issues. There were 4 times the slide locked back prematurely. It happened early on and midway through the session. I was using Wilson 47OXC's when they occurred.

    Accuracy- dead on. They went where I put them, I couldn't outshoot the gun on my best day.

    What kind of deal is he willing to give you? The Scorpion isn't on my short list, but at the right price I could be talked into it. Especially if there was a profit to be made.

    Very nice, I always liked the finish on sigs. Had a P220 Dark ELite 45 and sold it, loved the gun but just couldn't warm up to the trigger. Wish I would have kept it and gave it some more time.
