My son bought a new SIG X5; the single action one with the wooden grips and list for somewhere around $2500. He was looking for a 9 mm that would drive tacks and he has found it. He bought the pistol off of one of those auction sites and it was NIB.

We shot some of my favorite handloads, Blazers, S&B, some stuff in a green box, and Winchesters. The pistol never faltered once (over 500 rounds) and shot every brand of ammo like it was PPC Match ammo. This pistol is accurate and reliable, as it should be with that kind of price tag.

Anyway, I have not seen much on the pistol and thought you SIG guys and gals would like to hear about one.

OH, I almost forgot...it has one of the sweetest triggers that you could want. We had no way of testing the pull, but it was somewhere around 2# and broke CLEAN. Pull and length of pull are adjustable, but we did not mess with it.

Sweet is my final words on this pistol.

I have large hands and it feels good to me. As a matter of fact I felt like I had been shooting this pistol all my life. My son has average size hands and it fits him also. I think it is because it is a rounded grip. He plans to get the plastic/rubber grips and save the wood grips for some unknown reason.

If you can get your hands on one, I think you will be impressed. We both shot the plain jane model of the same pistol and it was nice. That is why my son bought this one.

Will I buy one over a $2500.00 SVI? No, and I can't tell you why. I guess that it is a 1911 thing. If I can find one for $1400 or $1500 then I would jump on it.

We are kinda of backward down here and I have never heard that expression. However, after writing the response, I realized that you must have had a different meaning.

It did make me look at the pistol closer and it has a nice comfortable grip that would probably fit most folks. It is a big gun at 46 ozs. but very well made.

I bought the P226 X5 "all around"

It's a DA/SA model.

I love mine



I bought mine in .40 cal and bought a Bar-Sto 9mm drop in barrel for it.

It shoots both calibers great.

:cool:
