Sig Sauer P250 & P226 - Umarex PX4 Storm - Gamo P25 & MP9 Comparison

Make sure to watch my YouTube video for this Comparison Review as I go into a lot of detail about the similarities and difference with each of these CO2 Blowback Pellet Guns.

Here are some of the main Similarities when comparing the Sig Sauer P250 & P226 - Umarex PX4 Storm - Gamo P25 & MP9:

  • All of these CO2 blowback pellet guns are made for each company in Japan (I am assuming from the same factory?)
  • All of the listed Pellet Airguns shoot .177 caliber pellets (Can be Alloy or Lead)
  • They all have double sided rotary stick magazines that hold 8 rounds on each end for a total of 16 shots per magazine.
  • All of the Airguns use 12 gram CO2.
  • All compared pellet guns have Blowback operation.
  • All of these pellet pistols have single and double action triggers except for the Gamo MP9 which is single action only and needs to be charged on the first shot.
  • They all have rifled barrels.

Here is where we find some key differences between these CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistols:

The FPS Velocity for each Airgun: 

The weight of Each Pellet Gun:

The Barrel Length for each Air Pistol:

The Main Build Materials for each Pellet Pistol:

Is the Ejection Port Cut Out? 

Is it a Replica of a Real Steel Gun?

Sig Sauer ASP P226 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol Table Top Review

Type: Air Pistol.
Manufacturer: Sig Sauer ASP
Model: Sig Sauer ASP P226.
Materials: Mostly metal build.
Weight: 2.35 pounds (1066 Grams).
Barrel: 4.75 inches - Rifled steel.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Blowback single and double action.
Ammunition Type: .177 caliber pellets.
Ammunition Capacity: 16 round double sided rotary stick magazine.
Max FPS: Claimed 510 but really more like 400.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Sig Sauer ASP P226 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol is a lot better than I thought it was going to be. The blowback operation does place the hammer in the cocked position for single action type shooting but the the trigger is still required to index or advance the next pellet to line up with the barrel. Because of this, trigger pull is full length even in single action mode but you can barely feel any added friction from the indexing of the rotary magazine. All of this makes for a slightly longer trigger pull but one that is light weight with a fairly nice and easy release.

Accuracy: I have not done my official Field Test Shooting Video with the Sig Sauer ASP P226 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol and I am not sure when I am going to get the chance to do so since I am waiting on a replacement Chronograph for my velocity portion of my testing. That said I can say that Sig has already done some of the work for me and conducted their own "real world" velocity testing for their ASP line of CO2 Pellet Guns. Sig tested both a standard 8.18 grain lead pellet and a high velocity 5.25 grain alloy pellet shooting an 8 shot string with each to find out average fps performance for both pellet types. The 8.18 grain lead pellet average 359 fps while the 5.25 grain alloy pellet average 403 fps. In terms of accuracy, I was able to get about a 2 inch 16 shot grouping on two separate 30 foot back tests which is pretty decent. I did notice that when shooting a 16 shot string, the first and last shot velocity will vary a fair amount as the CO2 cools the gun and lowers the fps. I would recommend taking your time in-between reloads to let the Sig Sauer ASP P226 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol warm back up.

Build Quality: The Sig Sauer ASP P226 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol is a very solid feeling pistol with its all metal construction. Weighing it at 2.35 pounds, it is actually a tad bit heavier then the real steel version but not by much. Sig claims that their entire APS line of pellet guns is life tested for 15,000 shots so you know this gun is going to last and provide years of shooting fun. The fit and finish seem really good, so far no real paint or finish problems and all mechanically everything is operating as it should.

Realism: The Sig Sauer ASP P226 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol is a very close replica of the real steel Sig Sauer P226, I would say it most closely takes after the MK-25 Threaded Barrel version. I really like the fact that the safety also works as a working decoker just as it would on the real P226. Other similar working parts are the magazine release and the hammer that stays back for true single action shooting. The slide catch release and take down leaver are purely for show but they are not moulded in parts so they look the part. One slight disappointment for me is when a gun does not have a cut out ejection port, that is the case with both the Sig Sauer ASP P226 and P250 but it does not take away from the shooting fun in any way.

Pros:

  • Good overall replica of the real steel Sig Sauer P250.
  • Really solid feeling gun, has awesome weight to it with it’s all mental construction, pretty close in weight the real steel version.
  • Designed by Sig and made in Japan, fully Sig Sauer licensed.
  • Nice heavy blowback operation.
  • Got respectable accuracy and seemed to shoot pretty hard.
  • Safety works as the de-cocker same as the real Sig Sauer P226.
  • White dot sights and accessory rail.
  • Super easy CO2 loading system, no having to tighten a CO2 tab.
  • Great feel to the trigger not heavy or sticky in any way.

Cons:

  • Shots tended to slow down a bit near the end of a 16 shot strong as the gun cooled down.
  • Sight are non adjustable.
  • Ejection port is not cut out.

Comments:
What I really like about the Sig Sauer ASP P226 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol is that like all the other APS airguns from Sig, it is a product that Sig has decided to invest a lot of their time and effort to develop rather then simply grab an existing arigun product from a manufacturer and slap their license on it. Sigs product ingenuity is what will help to improve the airgun industry overall. Getting back to the Sig Sauer ASP P226 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol, it's a really solid CO2 Pellet pistol that is a lot of fun to shoot and for Sig Sauer P226 owners, the pellet shooting airgun version offers a super economical and safe way to get some practice in using a product that looks, feels and shoots similarly to their real steel counterpart.

Sig Sauer P226 and P250 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol Preview

I have been waiting a long time (since SHOT Show two years ago) to finally get my hands on the Sig Sauer ASP CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistols and they finally arrived at my US Post Office Box. A big thanks to Sig for sending them to me! So today I made the dreaded trip across the boarder to pick them up and then deal with the Border Custom Agents which much of the time have no idea what they are doing when it comes to Airgun Importation laws. It's not like it's their job or anything??? Today was no exception and I spent several hours waiting as my Customs Agent disappeared behind closed doors to do his research on Airgun Importation. That's another story completely that at this time I don't want to get into, perhaps I will make a video about this another time? The good news is I prevailed and was able to bring both of my new Sig Sauer Air Pistols home with me.

This video is a bit like an unboxing and preview video combined, I don't go into a lot of detail or talk specifications much but I do show you around both the Sig Sauer ASP P226 and Sig Sauer ASP P250 nice and close and in detail. I will be making a future Table Top and Shooting Video for these fine Sig Air Pistols which are both CO2 operated, have blowback operation, shoot in both single and double action, shoot lead or alloy pellets using a 16 round double sided rotary stick styled magazine, shoot around 400 fps and feature Sig Sauer licensing all around.

SHOT Show 2016 - Sig Sauer Interview

In this 2016 SHOT Show Interview I talk with Dani Navickas from the Airgun division of Sig Sauer. Dani and I discuss Sig's new line of CO2 Blowback Pellet rifles and pistols. Dani talks about some of the behind the scenes information that went into the development and manufacturing of Sig's new line of CO2 Airguns.

Sig CO2 P226 and P250 Air Pistols along with their Sig MPX and MCX Air Rifles have been developed in house by Sig.Sig has been working very closely with a Japanese manufacturer to make sure that every stage of development is to Sig's high standards. The new Sig CO2 Blowback rifles and pistols are made to match the real steal version in almost every way including dimension, weight, functionality, materials used and even trigger pull.

Sig's new Sig MPX and Sig MCX Pellet Rifles have a brand new patented belt fed 30 round pellet magazine that is indexed via the internal blowback action of these rifles smoothing out the trigger action. The Sig P226 and Sig P250 pistols use a double ended 16 round pellet magazine similar to what you would find on Umarex's PX4 Strom blowback pellet pistol.

Look for Sig's new line of CO2 Blowback Pellet Airguns coming out shortly.

KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

This is my Official Field Test Shooting Review video for the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol. You can also checkout my Table Top Review where I go into more of the specifications and features of this fine KJWorks pistol and show you around the Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft gun and even do a Field Strip of it.

In this Field Test Shooting video I test out the performance of the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol using my Chronograph to get a real world (FPS) Feet Per Second rating. I also position myself 30 feet back and shoot 10 rounds at a paper target using a semi-rested shooting position (Sand bag up front and standing in the back).

In terms of velocity the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol shot a bit on the fast side at 414 FPS when averaging a 5 shot strong using .20 gram BB's with a brand new CO2. Keep in mind I was using the CO2 magazine which will have more power than the Gas Magazine version. I would assume the Gas mag version would shoot right around the mid 300's which may be more suited for indoor Airsoft games. For outside Airsoft wars you may want the extra power of the CO2 mag for shooting at targets further distances out.

Stepping back 30 feet and shooting at my paper target, the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol produced a decent 2 inch 10 shot grouping that was just a hair low but well centered left and right. The low factor could be adjusted up using some Hop-up tweaking. The trigger in single action mode is light and the release is crisp. Even the double action trigger is fairly light for double action, but there is a lot more take up since your finger is doing all the work that the blowback action would normally do for you when shooting in single action.

With the heavy blowback and high FPS the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol creates a really great shooting experience. It would be great for some target practice, getting some additional trigger time in if you are a Sig Sauer P226 owner and would make an excellent outdoor Airsfot war backup weapon. The quality is excellent and as a lover of the Sig Sauer lineup of guns I highly recommend this Airsoft pistol from KJWorks.
