KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistol Shooting Review

No Comments

If you haven’t already watched my Table Top Comparison Review for the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols than make sure to have a look at that video if you’re interested in more of the specifications and details and some closeup shots of both Airsoft Guns.

In this Field Test Shooting Video Review I compare the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols head to head and side by side to see how these two very similar Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Replicas perform. They both cost about the same, are built with similar quality and look a lot alike but what I really wanted to know is how do they shoot!

First off I tested out the power of both Airsoft Guns shooting 5 consistent .20 gram Airsoft BB’s from each gun through my Chronograph. Keep in mind I was using a full magazine of propane gas in the KWA M226-LE and a brand new 12 gram CO2 in the KJWorks KJ1060 (KP-01). As CO2 is know to have more power than green gas I was expecting a bit more pop out of the KJWorks KJ1060 which I did get. The temperature in my indoor Sea Can Airgun Shooting Range was 18 degree Celsius (64 degrees Fahrenheit) so not too cold or too hot. The KWA M226-LE averaged right around 320 fps while the KJWorks KJ1060 averaged 350 fps.

Moving on to my accuracy portion of the test for the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols. I placed fresh paper targets 30 feet down range for each Airsoft pistol and put 10 rounds into each target shooting from a rested seated position. I did not adjust the hop-up or sights for either Airsoft Pistol prior to this test to see how close to the bullseye they would get out of the box. First up was the KWA M226-LE and it performed nicely for me shooting close to the bullseye, just a little bit low but getting around a 3.5 inch 10 round group. I then followed up with the KJWorks KJ1060 (HP-01) and also shot fairly near the Bullseye out of the box but the grouping opened up just a bit resulting in a 4.5 inch 10 round group. Still respectable for a close Airsoft quarters sidearm.

At the end of the day, the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols came out pretty close to each other in this head to head Filed Test Shooting Comparison Review. One shot a little bit harder while the other one was a little bit more accurate but neither was a standout in either category. I guess you’re going to have to flip a coin deciding on which one of these two very well made Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols you’re going to choose but either way you will be getting a winner here.

SHOT Show 2018 Walk Around 360 Camera View

No Comments

I figured the best way for everyone to get an idea of what it's like to be at SHOT Show was to walk around and record some video using my Samsung Gear 360 Video Camera for you.

The first few minutes are just me walking around checking things out at this years SHOT Show 2018 in Las Vegas. After which I walk around of some of the more popular Airgun related booths: Crosman, Sig Sauer, ASG and Umarex.

If you're not able to attend SHOT Show yourself, then I hope this 360 video gives you a good idea of what it's like to be there yourself :)

SHOT Show 2018 Sig Sauer Interview

3 Comments

Sig Sauer Logo Black.jpg

This year at SHOT Show 2018 I had the please of again interviewing Dani Navickas from Sig Sauer. Dani Showed me several new pistols and a new break barrel rifle Sig Sauer is offering this year. The Sig ASP20 Break Barrel rifle will come in both .177 and .22 caliber pellet shooting versions. The ASP20 has a lighter than most cocking effort of only 33 pounds using their proprietary GlideLite system, along with an adjustable ASP MatchLite trigger.

Another Target pellet airgun from Sig Sauer this year is the .177 caliber pellet shooting Super Target, styled after the Sig Sauer P210 firearm. The Sig Super Target is a single pump pneumatic single shot pistol designed for 10 meeter shooting with adjustable sights and a crips short light trigger.

Sig like several other companies has rebranded their own version of the KWC 1911 CO2 Blowback BB pistols. The Sig Sauer licensed BB 1911 is based on Sigs We the People line to celebrate the American people and their Constitution.

Another new Blowback Pellet firing Sig Sauer Air Pistol was also introduced at SHOT Show, the Sig Sauer X-Five. The X-Five uses their 20 round belt fed magazine and also has Sig's Cam Lever CO2 loading mechanism. You will also find a rear adjustable sight on the Sig Sauer X-Five Pellet Pistol.

Last but not least and perhaps one of the most interesting new products coming out later this year from Sig Sauer is the P320MHS APS which is another new rotary magazine Blowback Pellet Pistol. What's a bit different with the new Sig P320MHS is that it has a full size drop out magazine that holds the CO2 and belt fed pellet magazine. The P320MHS can also be fully field striped, has an open ejection port and is styled after Sig's real Steal M17 firearm.

Which 1911 Airgun is the Best?

No Comments

In this comparison video I look at a variety of different 1911 Airguns and compare them to each other to determine which one I feel is the best 1911 Airgun, well at least for me.

Some of the guns I consider are the Umarex Colt Government 1911 A1 Pellet Pistol, the Sig Sauer Max Michel and Spartan 1911 BB Pistols, the Daisy Winchester Model 11 BB Pistol, and a selection of KWC made 1911's: Tanfoglio Witness 1911, Swiss Arms SA 1911 Tactical, Swiss Arms SA 1911 Seventies, KWC M1911 Tac A1 and the Umarex Colt Commander 1911.

So which one did I like the best? Well watch my YouTube Video to find out :)

Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

My final video for the Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel Blowback CO2 BB Pistols where I find out exactly how they perform. I test out the fps velocity with my Chrony Chronograph and then setup a paper target about 30 feet away and shoot 10 rounds from a rested and seated position with my hands on a sandbag for stability.

I decided to only shoot the Sig Sauer Spartan 1911 since the Max Michel is really the same gun mechanically but with slightly different cosmetics which should not change the performance in any way. I did use a brand new Sig Sauer CO2 along with Umarex zinc coated steel 4.5mm BB's for this test.

Starting with my fps velocity Chronograph testing for the Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel Blowback CO2 BB Pistols, it did take me 2 shots to get the chronograph to read but after that I got 5 good readings averaging about 370 fps with the fastest shot close to 400 fps. I know the first couple of shots that did not read where up in the higher ranges so my average result may have been a little higher if they had been included in the testing.

For my accuracy test I shot 10 rounds at a paper target setup about 30 feet away using my standard sea can seated and rested shooting position and I didn't feel like I pulled any shots. That said 2 of the 10 shots seemed to get away on me a little bit but the other 8 where well within a 2 inch grouping and the 2 outliers only extended the grouping by about an additional inch. In terms of placement on target the sig Sauer Spartan Blowback CO2 BB Pistol was well centered left to right but did shoot about 3 inches high.

I was a bit surprised by how heavy the blowback is on the Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel Blowback CO2 BB Pistols, it kind of rocked my table a little bit especially when the CO2 was new. I also really like the trigger and feel that theses Sig Sauer 1911 offerings really give the KWC 1911 blowback CO2 airguns a run for their money. If you can get over the plastic stick magazine then I think you would really like owning a Spartan or Max Michel Sig Sauer 1911 CO2 Blowback Airgun.

Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Table Top Review

2 Comments

Type: Air Pistol.
Manufacturer: Sig Sauer
Model: Sig Sauer Spartan & Max Michel 1911
Materials: Mostly all metal build.
Weight: 2.06 pounds (934 Grams).
Barrel: 5 inches - Non-rifled.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Blowback single action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 16 round stick magazine.
Max FPS: 410.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Sig 1911 CO2 blowback pistols is excellent! juts like a real 1911 it is single action only and both Sig Sauer 1911's have very short and very light trigger pulls. To make the shooting experience even more realistic you will need to engage the working back strap safety in order to shot these guns, again just like a real 1911.

Accuracy: I have not done my official Field Test Shooting Video for the these Sig Sauer CO2 Blowback 1911's but I did do a shooting field test for the Daisy Winchester Model 11 which these guns are built in design from. The Daisy Model 11 on a rather cold day shot around 360 fps so I am expecting better results from the new updated Sig Sauer Max Michal and Spartan especially in warmer shooting conditions. during my previous Daisy Model 11 testing I was also able to get around a 2 inch 10 shot grouping from a 30 foot shooting position.

Build Quality: Both of the Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel Blowback CO2 airguns are built really well, they feel solid in the hand and all the mechanical parts feel tight, the finish is also nice and does not show any signs of wearing. You will find metal parts pretty much everywhere except the magazines, even the safety, magazine release  and slide catch are metal, it's kind of too bad the magazine was also not metal?

Realism: Sig Sauer modeled the Spartan and Max Michel after their real steel version and overall they are very similar with the exception that neither of the real steel version have under barrel rails, you will also find adjustable sights on both of the real steel versions and of course proper full size magazines. Other than that both the Sig Sauer CO2 Blowback 1911/s look the part and have full Sig Sauer Licensing and branding,

Buy Sig Airguns in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Lots of metal in this gun with good weight!

  • Good overall replica of the real steel 1911 Sig Sauer pistols.

  • Really nice single action trigger.

  • Full Sig Sauer markings and licensing.

  • Cam lever system for easy CO2 loading.

  • Working grip safety.

  • Can expect reasonably decent blowback feel.

  • Higher fps than the KWC 1911’s range.

  • White dot sights front and back.

  • Rail for accessories.

Cons:

  • Plastic stick magazine.

  • Rail would not be on the original Sig Sauer pistols.

  • Sights are pretty basic and none adjustable.

  • Would have liked a more recessed barrel.

  • CO2 Grip comes off pretty easily.

Comments:
I know that everyone seems to like airguns with full size drop out metal magazines and yes it does make the airgun look and feel more realistic but once the magazine is in the gun the experience for the most part is the same. Having a stick magazine in this case allows for a more efficient CO2 delivery which should increase power and shots per CO2, I know a lot of people complain about the low FPS of the KWC 1911's so if this is you then perhaps you then you may need to give up a full size mag for more power and shots per CO2? Other then the stick mag issue both the Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel are really nice CO2 Blowback Airguns and I am really hoping they perform well when I get to my field test shooting review shortly.

Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel 1911 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Preview

No Comments

At SHOT Show this year I got to checkout two new 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistols from Sig Sauer, the 1911 Spartan and the 1911 Max Michel. A couple years back Sig introduced their (Advanced  Sport Pellet) or ASP line of pellet shooting Airguns in both rifle and pistol version but interestingly enough Sigs 1911 line of airguns are not pellet shooter but rather 4.5mm Steel BB airguns.

Both the Spartan and the Max Michel 1911 BB Pistols are styled after current real steal Sig Sauer 1911's. There are some slight differences in the airgun version cosmetically, notable the added Picatinny rails on both of them but overall they are decent replicas of the real steel versions.

The Spartan and the Max Michel 1911 BB Pistols are built on the same components but have different finishings but their general specifications will be identical.

  • 12 gram CO2
  • 4.5mm steel BB's
  • 16 round stick magazine
  • 410 fps
  • 2.06 pounds
  • Full metal slide and frame
  • Semi auto blowback operation
  • Single action only trigger
  • Cam lever CO2 loading port
  • Functioning grip safety
  • White dot sights

Both Sig Sauer 1911 Blowback BB pistols feel really solid and the single action tigers also feel really nice, what you would expect from a real 1911 trigger. As I mentioned already both Sig 1911 BB Airguns have Picatinny raise which you will not find on the original real steal versions, and I also notices that the Max Michel version has standard sights rather than competition sights and is also lacking the flared but-plate on the magazine.

I am looking forward to giving both these Sig Sauer 1911 Blowback BB pistols a good testing in the Sea Can Airgun shooting range so stay posted for my Field Test Shooting Video and also full Table Top Review.

My Favorite Picks From SHOT Show 2017 in Las Vegas

No Comments

This year at SHOT Show 2017 in Las Vegas, I found there wasn’t a lot of new Airgun products but as always there are some that stood out for me. If you want more info on each Airgun Company then make sure to watch my full interviews for this years SHOT Show 2017. So without prolonging this video any longer let’s get right into it…

Umarex Legends MP CO2 Full Auto German MP40 Replica Machine-gun:

What’s not to like about the Umarex Legends MP? It has lots of metal parts weighing in at 7.7 pounds, a 60 round steel BB magazine with a dual 12 gram CO2 system. You also get your choice of shooting either in semi auto or full auto at up to 400 fps. Personally the Umarex Legends MP was the most interesting Airgun at the show this year for me and I really think it is going to be a hit!

Umarex SA10 Blowback Pellet and BB CO2 Pistol:

Another interesting product from Umarex this year was the SA10, I am not really sure what it is exactly styled after, it’s more of a futuristic looking gun with slide venting and a thread barrel for adding a mock suppressor or compensator. What appealed to me most about the Umarex SA10 was the new magazine design that incorporates a full size drop out metal magazine with 4 rotary 8 round magazines that can be loaded with either pellets or BB’s. When you empty one 8 shot magazine you simply drop the entire mag out and swap your empty 8 shot rotary magazine for a full one. The SA10 has a nice weight of around 2 pounds and shoots up to 426 fps.

Sig Sauer ASP P320 CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol:

Sig Sauer introduced their new Sig Sauer ASP P320 CO2 Pellet Pistol this year that will be replacing the P250. Like the P250 the Sig P320 has a metal slide and polymer frame but instead of a double sided 16 shot rotary magazine, the Sig ASP P320 has a newly designed and very unique 30 round belt fed magazine. That’s nearly double the capacity without having to flip the magazine around part way through shooting. It’s great to see innovations like this happening in the airgun market.

Crosman Remington 1875 Shell Loading CO2 Pellet and BB Revolver:

Crosman introduced their own Single Action Old West Revolver this year in the form of the Remington 1875. Like the super popular Umarex Single Action Army Revolvers, the Remington 1875 is also shell loading and uses 12 gram CO2. You have the option of shooting either Pellets or BB’s out of its smooth bore barrel. I expect the Crosman Remington 1875 Shell Loading Revolver to be another popular Old West Airgun Revolver.

Crosman PSM45 Single Shot Spring Powered BB Pistol:

The Crosman PSM45 at first glance may not seem that interesting, after all it’s all plastic on the outside and only shoots about 200 fps! On the plus side it kind of looks like a Glock and we all know how hard it is to find airguns these days that resemble a Glock. I also like the fact that there is no need for any CO2, and most springers out there look like springers while the Crosman PSM45 looks like a real semi auto pistol. The PSM45 even has pretty decent weight to it since there are lots of internal metal parts and a full size drop out metal magazine which was a real surprise in such an entry level low cost pistol. If you’re looking for a fun inexpensive replica plinker than the Crosman PSM45 should fit the bill. On a side not the PSM45 would also make a really great low cost prop since the slide does work and it has that full size drop out magazine!

ASG Dan Wesson 715 2.5 and 4 inch Shell Loading CO2 Revolvers:

The ASG Dan Wesson Revolver has always been a popular choice, and then the Dan Wesson 715 came out improving on the design by adding extra weight and smoothing out the mechanics. How do you top that? Well by giving us some more options like barrel lengths. You now have your choice of a 2.5, 4 or 6 inch barrel for the Dan Wesson 715 and of course you will be able to buy your 715 pick in 4.5mm Steel BB, 6mm Plastic Airsoft or .177 Caliber Pellet ammunition versions. My personal choice may be the 4 inch Dan Wesson 715 since it has the addition of an integrated accessory rail machined into the outer barrel for lasers or tach lights.

Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nogant CO2 BB Rifle:

The Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nogant CO2 BB Rifle is not a new replica gun this year but it has been a hard one to get your hands on. In fact up until SHOT Show 2017 I had never seen one in person and so the Gletcher M1944 is new to me. I was very impressed with the quality of the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nogant, it has a lot of metal parts including the swing out bayonet and even the simulated wood stock looks like real wood. I even had to take a second look and ask before confirming that the stock is in fact plastic on the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nogant. I am looking forward to reviewing this rifle in the future when I do finally get one!

Of course there where other interesting products at SHOT Show 2017 this year but those are the products that stood out the most for me. Again make sure to watch my full interview videos to find out more about all the new products at this years SHOT Show.

SHOT Show 2017 Sig Sauer ASP Interview

No Comments

My First SHOT Show 2017 Las Vegas Interview to kick things off! Dani Navickas from Sig Sauer ASP talks with me about three new CO2 blowback air pistols Sig Sauer ASP is introducing this year just in time for spring season.

The Sig Sauer ASP P320 will be replacing last years P250, don't worry the Sig Sauer ASP P226 is not going anywhere! The P320 is a CO2 Blowback Pellet pistol similar to the previous P250 but this new model has a 30 round belt fed magazine rather than a dual sided 16 round rotary magazine. I love that Sig Sauer ASP is coming out with new innovations like this for us Airgun enthusiasts! The Sig Sauer ASP P320 has a metal slide and polymer frame like it's big powder burning brother and throws pellets at around 430 fps average. Don't expect a ton of shots per CO2, you will be lucky to get two magazine out of a single 12 gram CO2 but I am sure the extra power is worth it.

Sig Sauer ASP also introduced this year two new full metal and full blowback CO2 BB firing 1911's that feature a working safety and grip safety along with a true single action trigger. You have your choice of the signatured Max Michel in two tone black and silver or the Spartan in a Gold Brown finish. Both of these guns are based on the same mechanical build but are cosmetically different. I can say they feel really good in the hand and are super solid. There is a bit of a trade off, you do get a bit higher fps (around 410 fps) than some other 1911's at out there but you will have to put up with a stick magazine.

Of course the Sig Sauer ASP MPX and MCX are still going strong alone with the Sig Sauer ASP P266. Make sure to watch my previous Review Video for the Sig Sauer APS MPX and Sig Sauer APS P226.

Enjoy some additional photos along with my YouTube Sig Sauer SHOT Show 2017 Interview!

SHOT Show Las Vegas 2017 Teaser

No Comments

Last week I was in Las Vegas to attend this years 2017 SHOT Show. As always I look forward to this event since I not only get to look at all the new Airgun related products, but I also meet with the big Airgun companies and talk face to face with many of the good folks I have been emailing back and forth with.

This first video will hopefully get you excited to watch my upcoming Interview videos I will be making for companies like: Sig Sauer ASP, Umarex, ASG, Crosman and Gletcher. I also have some additional video of the KWA booth where they had a laser sighting system set up for people to test out their Airsoft guns on a simulated targeting system.

For now here are some photos and of course checkout my Preview Teaser Video of SHOT Show 2017 in Las Vegas.

My 2016 Favorite Replica Airgun Picks of the Year

No Comments

It's been a great year for Replica Airguns and I wanted to share with everyone some of my favorites that I reviewed this year. In this YouTube Video I show some of my top Replica Airgun picks for 2016 and talk a little bit about each one and what I like about it.

Here is a list of the Replica Airguns in this lineup:

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

No Comments

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 P250 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol Table Top Review

1 Comment

Type: Air Pistol.

Manufacturer: Sig Sauer ASP

Model: Sig Sauer ASP P250.

Materials: Metal and plastic build.

Weight: 1.45 pounds (658 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 500 but really more like 400.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Sig Sauer ASP P250 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. For some reason the Sig Sauer P226 trigger does feel a little smoother with a slightly easier release.

Accuracy: I have not done my official Field Test Shooting Video with the Sig Sauer ASP P250 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 353 fps while the 5.25 grain alloy pellet average 399 fps. In terms of accuracy, I was able to get just under a 2 inch 16 shot well centered 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 P250 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol warm back up.

Build Quality: The Sig Sauer ASP P250 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol is a bit on the lighter side coming in around 1.5 pounds since it does incorporate both metal and plastic construction. You will find the Sig Sauer P250 has a metal slide and plastic frames similar to the real steel version. Weighing it at 1.45 pounds, the P250 is lighter then a standard Sig Sauer P250. 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 P250 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol is a very close replica of the real steel Sig Sauer P250. I really like the fact that the safety also works as a working decoker just as it would on the real Sig P250. 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 good and realistic. 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.
  • Designed by Sig and made in Japan, fully Sig Sauer licensed.
  • Nice heavy blowback operation.
  • It might feel a bit light weight at first but out of the two Sig Sauer ASP pellet pistols this one seems to shoot a bit better.
  • Got respectable accuracy and seemed to shoot pretty hard.
  • Safety works as the de-cocker same as the real Sig Sauer P250.
  • White dot sights and accessory rail.
  • 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 P250 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol is that like all the other APS Airgun 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 Airgun 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 P250 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol, it may feel a bit light weight at first but the heavy blowback will rock you unexpectedly! I found in terms of comparison to the Sig Sauer ASP P226, the P250 was more accurate and well centered on target for me as well. If you're a Sig Sauer P250 owner you are for sure going to want to pick yourself up one of these ASP CO2 Blowback Airgun versions so you can get some extra practice time in for pennies per shot and the ability to shoot in a lot more locations..

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

No Comments

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.

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

No Comments

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.

Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle Field Test Review

1 Comment

I have already made a couple of videos for the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle, my official Table Top Review and a Preview Video where I shoot some rounds at a Sig Sauer Quad Shooting Gallery.

In this Review Video I focus on the shooting performance of the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle to find out what kind of FPS we can get out of it and exactly how accurate the MPX is from 30 feet back using a fairly stable semi rested shooting position. I'll tell you right away my Chrony Chronograph has officially called it quits and I will be looking at replacing it for future Field Test Shooting videos. Lucky for us Sig sent me their real world inhouse testing using both 5.25 grain high velocity pellets and standard 8.18 grain lead pellets.

Here are the average results Sig achieved from each pellet type shooting an 8 shot string.

5.25 Grain Alloy High Velocity Pellets:

  • FPS - 506
  • Energy in Foot pounds - 2.98
  • Energy in Joules - .1257
  • Temperature at time of testing - 71 Degrees Fahrenheit 

8.18 Grain Standard Lead Lead Pellets:

  • FPS - 447
  • Energy in Foot pounds - 3.63
  • Energy in Joules - .153
  • Temperature at time of testing - 71.5 Degrees Fahrenheit

In terms of accuracy, this rifle is made to shoot at much further out ranges than 30 feet but I was still able to get on what kind of a grouping is possible with the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle. I first shot 10 rounds at my paper target and then had a quick look. I was able to get a nice 1 inch grouping which I am sure I could improve upon with some more shooting time with the rifle. I was also not using a magnified scope, just a standard red dot. I then shot the remaining 20 rounds to finish off the 30 round belt fed magazine and for the most part the majority of the pellets all fell within the first 10 shot grouping and I did rip these shots off pretty quickly, about as fast as I could pull the trigger that is.

All in all the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle is a good performer, I am very happy with FPS form an 8 grain pellet consistently hitting 450 FPS, that's plenty fast enough to shoot all kinds of targets even out at further ranges. Accuracy was also consistent even under rushed shooting so I can imagine the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle would make a great trainer for tactical shooting situations. I thing Sig has a real winner here, great looks, excellent quality and good performance all at a reasonable cost. I just hope we get them here in Canada soon...

Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Pellet Rifle.

Manufacturer:Sig Sauer ASP

Model:Sig Sauer MPX ASP

Materials: Metal and Nylon Fiber build.

Weight: 7 Pounds (3300 Grams).

Barrel: 8 inch steelrifled.

Propulsion: 88 or 90 Gram CO2.

Action: Semi Auto,double action only.

Ammunition Type: .177 caliber pellets.

Ammunition Capacity: 30 rounds belt fed.

FPS: Up to 600 fps (When shot by a Unicorn)

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle is actually pretty decent when you consider the first part of the trigger pull is used to advance the belt fed 30 round magazine. One would think that there would be a lot of added friction from the belt but this does not seem to be the case. There is some internal blowback action going on but it is only used to cock the internal hammer/striker which does lesson the overall amount of trigger pull required. The trigger pull is shorter than expected with all that is going on and it's not overly heavy so quick and predictable action shooting is very possible with the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle.

Accuracy: So far I have not done my official Field Test Shooting Video for the  MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle but I did have the chance to get out and shoot some rounds down range at my Sig provided Quad Shooting Gallery that I had setup about 35-40 feet away. Even though I did not have my red dot all perfectly sighted in I was still able to hit the smallish metal targets fairly well using the Sig Sauer MPX ASP. In terms of velocity you can expect from the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle, 600 fps is a bit optimistic. Sig did send me a real world fps performance spread sheet they had conducted using both 5.25 grain alloy pellets and 8.18 grain lead pellets shooting 8 rounds and averaging out the fps. The 5.25 grain pellets averaged in at just over 500 fps while the heavier 8.18 grain pellets came in with an average of just under 450 fps. Pretty much what I would expect from a shorter barreled CO2 rifle.

Build Quality: The build quality for Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle is excellent, you can tell Sig Sauer had a lot of hands on in the design and production of this Pellet Shooting Air Rifle! The materials used and fit and finish are top notch and the mechanical function again is really good, I am kind of amazed at how well their belt fed rotary magazine design works in terms of feeding and operation. So far I have not experienced any pellet feeding problems at all using both lead and alloy flathead pellets.

Realism: The Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle is for the most part designed to be used as a side by side optional training aid for the real steel Sig Sauer MPX Rifle. Sig wanted the pellet version to look and feel as close as posable and Sig has done a good job with this. Other than the lessor recoil and noise factor, the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle works and shoots much the same as a real steel Sig Sauer MPX Rifle.

Pros:

  • Has to be the best semi auto pellet rifle replica I have seen and shot to date.
  • Near perfect replica of the real steel Sig Sauer MPX including licensing and trademarks.
  • Awesome build quality, lots of metal parts and the nylon parts are true to form and very solid.
  • Rifle has been tested to shoot over 15,000 rounds reliably.
  • 30 round full size belt fed magazine has super high capacity and works flawlessly.
  • Decent fps performance, about what I would expect from a multi-shot CO2pellet shooter and totally usable.
  • Trigger feels really good, not too long or to heavy and very consistent feel on every shot.
  • Fully adjustable pop up front and rear sights.
  • Lots of rails for your pick of sight options and other add on accessories.
  • Very accurate with it’s 8 inch rifled barrel.

Cons:

  • Rear stock is none adjustable so the gun may feel kind of cramped for larger shooters.
  • Internal blowback action does not advance the belt fed magazine but does cock the internal hammer.
  • FPS claim of 600 fps seems a bit optimistic compared to real world testing.

Comments:

I have been waiting to get my hands on the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle for some time now and the wait has been worth it for sure. There are really no other guns out there right now other than perhaps the Umarex CX4 Storm that compare to the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle and even so I feel the Sig Sauer MPX is by far the better of the two CO2 Air Rifles. OK so the MPX does not really come close to hitting 600 fps but did you really believe that in the first place? Still consistent 450 fps from a decent grain lead pellet is about what you would expect from a short barreled CO2 rifle. If you do want more fps then look at the MCX with over double the barrel length of the MPX, this will easily get you an additional 100+fps for those of you who thrive on velocity performance. I am fine with 450-500 fps since this is all that is needed to accuracy shoot and nock over most targets at a variety of ranges.

Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle Preview

1 Comment

I was excited when I first heard that Sig Sauer was coming out with their own line of pellet shooting airguns and that was about 2 years ago! So it's been a long time coming for me to finally get my hands on one of Sigs own in-house Airguns. Sig Sauer was kind enough to send me three of their ASP (Advanced Sport Pellet) airguns, one of which arrived last week, the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle. I will also be receiving Sigs P250 and P226 CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistols for review when they are sent to me hopefully soon.

I will be performing my standard Table Top and Field Test Shooting videos for all of the Sig Sauer Airguns being sent to me but wanted to get out this preview video for the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle to give you a little info on it right away and also let you know what's coming up in terms of Sig Sauer product reviews.

In this preview video I do a little bit of fun backyard shooting simply because I could not resist having a go with this awesome air rifle any longer and needed to shoot it. I was not disappointed! Every pellet I placed in the 30 round belt fed magazine fired flawlessly from the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle. I used both Sigs high velocity 5.25 grain alloy pellets and some flathead 7 grain RWS lead pellets and all my ammo shot well in the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle. I have not done a Chronograph test so far for the Sig MPX but can say the pellets where getting to my Sig Sauer Quad Shooting Gallery Target in no time and I had placed a good 35-40 feet away. Once I figured out my sights I was able to continently hit what looked like pretty small targets from where I was standing, this was no surprise since the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Riflehas an 8 inch rifled barrel.

Sig has done some real world pellet fps testing on their own using both light weight 5.25 grain pellets and heavier 8.18 grain pellets and the numbers for an 8 shot average came in at around 505 fps using 5.25 grain pellets and around 450 fps using 8.18 grain pellets. That's plenty enough power to rip into your targets setup even further down range.

My Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle is the open sight only version but you can get one already paired with Sigs Red Dot system or add your own sighting system, since there are plenty of rails to add just about any kind of accessory to the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle.

Check back shortly for my office Table Top and Field Test Shooting videos for the Sig Sauer MPX ASP .177 Caliber Pellet Rifle. And when I do finally get the Sis Sauer p250 adn P226 ASP Air Pistols I will have review videos out for them too.
