New from SIG Custom Works: P320 AXG Scorpion 9mm pistol with metal grip module

“Combining the weight and balance of a metal framed pistol with the performance and reliability of the P320”, they say at SIG Sauer. Two things actually stand out about the new P320 AXG Scorpion 9mm pistol: it's the first pistol release from SIG Custom Works and, number two, after a couple of decades of dominance by polymer-framed guns, it marks a return to traditional steel frames. The P320 AXG Scorpion in fact is SIG's very first commercially available “full metal” P320, featuring the newly developed AXG metal grip module, precision machined with deep undercuts and an extended beavertail. This, according to the manufacturer, delivers  “a uniquely refined shooting experience unlike anything else”, in the words of Tom Taylor, SIG's Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales.
