First Look: SIG Sauer AXG Scorpion Handgun

posted on October 19, 2020

The SIG Sauer P320 pistol, like many other modern semi-automatic pistols, has a cradle that holds the trigger assembly inside the gun. This cradle is the serialized component of the firearm, and allows you to quickly and easily change out most of the components of the gun, including the frame itself.

The P320 was originally built with a variety of polymer frames to hold the trigger assembly, but now SIG is introducing a new pistol with a metal alloy frame that uses the P320 trigger group. The new P320 AXG Scorpion from SIG Sauer combines the weight and balance of a metal framed pistol with the performance and reliability of the polymer-framed SIG P320, delivering a uniquely refined shooting experience.

Using the new AXG (Alloy X-Series Grip) metal grip module as a foundation, the SIG Custom Works team has carefully selected a set of premium options and performance upgrades, creating a limited edition P320 pistol that blends the style and shootability of a classic metal frame pistol with the modern features you expect from the P320, delivered in an exclusive, ultra-premium package.
