Gonna Fo on a 220 Scorpion and want to see if there's anything I need to know before I do. Been wanting a 220 for a while and found a deal. Anything I need to know?

At $680 from Smoky Mountain Guns, I really can't discourage you from getting one.

The only reason I would say no is because the P227 exist.

Money?

Joking aside, that is one nice looking pistol, and I'm usually not a fan of non-black or stainless guns due to finish wear.

Apparently the 10mm variant - called the Emperor Scorpion - is out, or at least Lipsey's was showing it's available.

Hopefully those will be easier to get a hold of than my DA/SA 10mm P220 Elite. Took a heck of a while to find one, while the SAO 10mm models were everywhere.

Agreed^^^^ P220 is a great pistol, but the P227 is even better 14+1 with the P227 14 rd mag. Both are world class combat pistols. You will never look back if you buy the P220.

Yeah, I went to get it there and it was sold out. Luckily I found one on GB for 30 more. Can't wait to take it out.

The P220 series pistols are excellent and I really like the Scorpion model. Also, don't forget about the Sig magazine/pistol pouch deal Sig is offering now on new guns.

That's great. Thanks for the heads up.

I'd get the legion P220.
Because It's kind of neat.
But then again I could be partial.

I looked at the Scorpion but ended up with a Legion and have 0 regrets about the choice. It really is an amazing handgun.

I am torn between the Scorpion and getting a Super Match!

Here, let me help the OP out.

I would have but the $400 price difference made it a little out of my reach right now. I do want a 226 Legion down the road though.

That's what I got. Hopefully it will be here this week. Are these being discontinued because the legion is out now? They aren't on the sig site anymore and it seems like some places are getting rid of whatever they have left cheap.

I prefer the Scorpion. What is the difference anyway between the two-Scorpion and Legion? A coin,finish and grips is all I can find for $400.00 more. I bought a P220 Desert Black not long that is very similar to the P220 Combat (minus the threaded barrel), but the $400.00 + price difference swayed me to the D.B. 220. Even if I got the extra parts needed to look like the Combat, I would come out ahead.
I am not knocking anyone's choice but Sig,like others, uses marketing to make some of their models appear better than others when they are usually all the same,except for a few small pieces parts.

Get it, I love mine.
Link Posted: 8/23/2017 6:55:11 AM EST
It should be here Thursday or Friday. Does it have an SRT on it? I can't find an answer to that.
Link Posted: 8/24/2017 2:47:08 PM EST
The Legion is the best reason to not get the Scorpion.
Link Posted: 8/25/2017 6:46:39 PM EST
Got my 220 today. Gotta get it to the range. Found out that it is not eligible for the free mags and bag rebate. That kind of bummed me out. Guess it's because they are discontinuing them. Oh well.
Link Posted: 8/25/2017 11:06:08 PM EST
Good luck with it and let us have a range report as soon as you can.
Link Posted: 8/26/2017 6:03:02 AM EST
We're gonna need some pix! Brownells has ACT mags for the P220 at $20 a piece if you're looking to stock up.
Link Posted: 8/26/2017 9:46:41 AM EST


Very comfortable. The color is darker than I thought. The camera lightens it up. Gonna try to get to the range today or tomorrow.

The choice is easy; get either.

My 2010 built Super Match has been superb.
