Cybergun Sig Sauer X-Five P226 Open CO2 BB Pistol Review


Type: BB air pistol.
Manufacturer: Cybergun.
Model: Sig Sauer X-Five P226 Open.
Materials: 99% all metal build.
Weight: 2.86 pounds.
Barrel: 4.4 inches, brass, non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, double and single action.
Ammunition Type: Steel BBs 4.5mm.
Ammunition Capacity: 18 rounds
FPS: 330
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Sig Sauer X-Five is what you would expect from a real automatic pistol, in single action mode it is very light and short. The blowback action re-cocks the hammer with each shot.

Accuracy: Excellent for a BB shooter, I got about a 1 inch grouping from a 20 foot away free standing position with this red dot equipped BB shooter. I also put the Cybergun Sig Sauer P226 Open version through my Chrony Chronograph and even though the box has a 300 FPS rating on it I, I was able to get an 8 shot average of 343 FPS.
Build Quality: Excellent, with an almost all metal construction, this gun has some weight to it and the craftsmanship is also very good!

Realism: The Cybergun Sig Sauer X-Five P226 is as close as you can come to the look, weight, feel, and action of the real Sig Sauer X-Five. P226! Everything about this gun makes it feel real, it would make an excellent training gun for someone just getting started in the sport or even for a skilled semi auto shooter wanting to hone their skills when a gun range is not easily accessible.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store


  • All metal construction - Extremely good weight and solid feeling gun. As real as you can get in an airgun.
  • Heavy blowback action adds to the realism.
  • Very Accurate Sig Sauer replica.
  • Really good accuracy for a BB gun (Red Dot helps),
  • Awesome training gun.
  • Both SA & DA with excellent pull, very smooth and light. 
  • Field strips just like the real Sig Sauer X-Five P226.
  • Mine came in with much higher FPS then claimed.
  • Carries Sig Sauer licensed trademarks.
  • For only $10 more you get the sight rail, compensator and rear adjustable sight.


  • Sacrifice some fps and shots per CO2 because of the heavy blowback but worth it.
  • A bit hard to load up.
  • Can not field strip without taking off the sight rail?

This Cybergun 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 Open version shoots even more accurately than the non-sight rail version because of the addition of a Red Dot scope helping the accuracy! Both the regular version of teh Sig Sauer X-Five P226 and this "Open" version are absolutely great air pistols but for the extra $10 price tag you get some really nice additions to this pistol including an adjustable rear sight.
