SIG Sauer took a step forward in handgun design and evolution with its TXG, a tungsten-infused polymer grip module that appeared as a standalone upgrade and in the company's competition-ready XFive handgun lineup. Now, SIG is taking this same concept another direction in the form of the limited-edition P320 AXG Scorpion available from the SIG Custom Works team.

“The P320 AXG Scorpion is an exciting product introduction because it’s our very first commercially available metal P320, and the first pistol release from SIG Custom Works,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “The P320 AXG Scorpion combines the weight and balance of a metal framed pistol with the performance and reliability of the P320, delivering a uniquely refined shooting experience unlike anything else. This SIG Custom Works exclusive delivers performance you can feel.”

The alloy-infused frame on the SIG Sauer P320 AXG Scorpion gives the gun added weight and shifts the balance to feel more like that of a traditional metal-framed pistol. However, because it's based on the proven P320 platform, the gun still performs to expectations and is packaged with all of the elements today's consumers have come to expect from the SIG P320 platform.

The AXG grip module features a deep undercut paired with an extended beavertail that allows shooters to obtain a high firing grip for improved control. Paired with this ergonomic design is a set of Hogue Scorpion G10 grips that enhance control over the gun by anchoring it solidly in the shooter's hands. The frame and slide both are finished with a Cerakote Elite FDE finish.

On the slide, you'll find a SIG Pro Series removable optics plate, which hides a milled slide cut for use with the SIG Romeo1PRO, Leupold Delta Point Pro and the Trijicon RMR. The slide also includes dovetailed SIG XRAY43 day/night sights. In addition, one of the must-feel enhancements on this SIG P320 AXG Scorpion is the trigger, which is borrowed from SIG's Legion Series of guns. The lightened, skeletonized, flat-blade trigger provides the perfect trigger pull for this tuned-up platform.

Each SIG Sauer P320 AXG Scorpion ships with three enhanced SIG P320 17-round steel magazines, as well as a Custom Works signature engraving on the slide and a Negrini Custom Works case with a challenge coin and certificate. The suggested retail price on the AXG Scorpion is $1,129.99. For more information, visit sigsauer.com.
