Default Kimber Desert Warrior vs. Sig Scorpion

So I'm thinking about getting a Desert Warrior and then came across the Sig Scorpion.

Thoughts from fellow calgunners on either one?

The fact that the SIG is less coin and that I've never tried a SIG 1911 but heard positive reviews makes me want to give the SIG a shot.

Thanks.

im picking up my sig 1911 in a few days, id go with the sig. 2 problems, 1, offlist maybe hard to come across and 2 being it has a threaded barrel. either spend money on a new barrel or shave off the threads, but shaving off those threads wouldnt feel right to me.

Off list just makes it a hassle and more $ to get but not a show stopper. I'm tending to go with the Sigs for now as i have a kimber already....

The Kimber DW is a nice 1911. It has the series I safeties and an internal extractor that many in the 1911 world absolutely cannot do without. My Kimber ran 100% after the first 400 rounds. I dont have any experience with the sig but it seems to have a lot of the features that people want now a days.
