Introduced at the Annual Meeting is SIG Sauer's new Emperor Scorpion 1911 pistol. Featuring a new "regal" finish that is the same Nitron finish as the 1911 line, but polished to a finish resembling the company's stainless models.

With a Flat Dark Earth Nitron finish slide and frame, the Emperor Scorpion stands out. A dust cover rail, aggressive checkering on the grips, frontstrap and backstrap and night sights add to the utility of this attractive pistol. Both form and function are satisfied in this equation.

This is one Scorpion you won't mind finding in your closet.
