Outrageous Fun

This pistol is better than I thought it would be. The innovative magazine design and the fact that the manual of arms is freakishly similar to a centerfire 1911 makes the overall experience outstanding and familiar all at the same time. There's just enough recoil to remind you to use your fundamentals. But the ease of shooting makes you want to stick with it all day. Next time you have a day off, get a box of CO2 cartridges, bottle of 6,000 BBs, and bring enough aluminum cans to wear yourself out feeling like a kid again.

Things I liked:

Well, it was (past tense) a lot of fun for a couple weeks. Externally the pistol is a very solid and good replica. It looks and feels very much like the real 1911 firearms that I have. Very good blowback and it breaks down similar to a real 1911 firearm. See below for problems.

Things I would have changed:

Perhaps beef up the internals.

What others should know:

I've had the pistol for a little over a month and estimate that I've fired between 1500 and 2000 shots. The first issue was with the thumb safety moving slightly perhaps only 1/64 of an inch and locking the trigger as if the thumb safety had been fully engaged. I insured I was not touching the thumb safety on either the right or left hand side of the pistol while shooting, but the movement/ lockup still occurred. About the same time I had an issue with the trigger not resetting after every shot unless I completely removed my finger from the trigger after each shot. Lastly, bbs have stopped releasing from the magazine when shooting. The blowback occurs but the bbs do not exit. At this point I’m wondering if some of the internal parts of the SIG 1911 are just not up to 1500 to 2000 vibrating blowback shots.

    Things I liked:

    Like this gun a lot. the look, weight and operation is just like a real 1911. Had a problem with the thumb safety moving up a little during recoil. Also had a problem with the rear sight moving around after a while of shooting. Was able to return the gun for an exchange with no issues. The second gun works like a dream with no issues yet. Shoots a little low, but really like this gun a lot...

    I am undergoing physical therapy

    I am undergoing physical therapy following spinal and neck surgery. Being 'mobility impaired' I can't get to the range. The 1911 Emperor Scorpion, being a functionally equivalent to the Sig Sauer firearm, enables me to practice my stance and rehabilitate my shooting hand to manipulate the controls. Three thumbs up.

    Just like you're holding a real 1911 pistol. Excellent quality/design and the overall feel of this training pistol is really fantastic. If i could only acquire a real Emperor Scorpion here in California, it will be on the top of my list.

    An outstanding value which is an extremely faithful representation of a 1911 in BB gun format. It is so realistic, that I wish there was an option to add something that clearly indicates that it is only a BB gun.

    Great Training Aid

    Great for economical training. Easy to set up inside your home. Same mechanics as an actual 1911. Surprisingly accurate. Great way to maintain proficiency without the hassle of loading up to go to the range. Definitely quieter. Great product.

    Things I liked:

    This is a great 1911 style replica pistol. The addition of this pistol brings my collection of 1911s up to a total of 14. Yes! I am a 1911 collector :-). Great Coyote color. Field takedown is realistic. Weight is also realistic. Very comfortable handling and the blowback has enough power to feel realistic. You WILL feel the jump!!

    Things I would have changed:

    The only thing I would change is to put adjustable sights on this pistol. Accuracy is hampered by having to compensate so much while shooting. The four star Accuracy rating is due to the inability to use the sights properly, since they are not adjustable.

    What others should know:

    Data was gathered using Caldwell Crony. I lubed the slide with Molly before using. Performance was measured using a 6 shot string. The pistol met spec with a Max Velocity of 309 fps and an average of 303.6 fps. The SD was 2.8 fps. Shot count averaged about 3+ clips to depletion of CO2 (about 54 shots). Full blowback performance was solid with power to spare. Very impressive velocity for a full blowback CO2 pistol. Accuracy was hampered by consistently shooting about 2-1/2" low at 10 feet and aprox 4.5" low at 18 feet. With compensation I could hit the 2" ring 2/3rds of the time, but that much compensation is difficult. I will have to figure out a way to change or adjust the sights to make this pistol usable for plinking. Its a shame this pistol does not have adjustable sights. It is a fun shooter but having to compensate for the sights is frustrating. This would have been a 5 star rating if it were not for the sights.
