Pros:

  • Extremely realistic airgun replica of the original Sig Sauer X-Five P226.
  • All metal construction.
  • Would make an excellent training gun as it functions just like a real automatic handgun.
  • Blowback action is very firm adding to the realism of shooting this weapon.
  • Field strips just like the real Sig Sauer X-Five P226.
  • Carries Sig Sauer licensed trademarks.

Cons:

  • It goes through CO2 very fast.
  • When the magazine releases, it simply drops out, no spring to it.
  • No adjustable sights.

Comments:
This BB air pistol is styled after many modern blowback airsoft pistols, this means it functions very similarly to the real steel. It is a very hefty gun made almost entirely from metal and has a very snappy blowback action which adds to its shooting realism. Even the magazine looks and feels like a real 9mm magazine with similar weight and dimensions. The Cybergun Sig Sauer X-Five shoots very accurately for a BB airgun and has fairly decent power considering it's blowback function, this does result in heavy usage of CO2. I was able to get about 3 magazines out of a CO2 cartridge. This is one of my favorite airguns because it is so true to form and function.
