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

41 Comments

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

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • 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?

Comments:
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.
