KWC S226-S5 Full Metal Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol

Type: BB Airsoft Pistol
Manufacturer: KWC
Model: Model 226-S5 (Sig Sauer X-Five)
Materials: 99% all metal build
Weight: 2.75 pounds
Barrel: 4.33 inches, brass, non-rifled
Propulsion: CO2 x1
Action: Semi auto blowback, double and single action
Ammunition Type: Airsoft 6mm plastic BB's
Ammunition Capacity: 25 rounds
FPS: 390

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KWC Model 226-S5 Sig Sauer CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is what you would expect from a blowback pistol with true single action capability; nice and light with a short take-up in single action and also decent when shooting in double action which for the most part you will not be doing since the blowback pre-cocks the hammer for single action shooting.
Accuracy: This is yet to be determined since I have not conducted my Field Test Shooting review for the KWC Model 226-S5 Sig Sauer. Based on my previous review of the branded and licensed Sig X-Five 4.5mm Steel BB version, it should do well with heavy blowback, reasonable power but not a lot of shots per CO2.

Build Quality: Very good, pretty much an all metal construction, good weight and craftsmanship, slide wiggle is minimal, fit and finish is good. As with many of the KWC airguns that use an electromagnetic powder coating, the finish looks great but is thin so it does wear off on the high posts and where metal on metal movement takes place.

Realism: Compared to the real steel Sig Sauer X-Five, the KWC version is pretty close, although it does have a bit different looking slide in terms of the groves or slide serrations, and of course there is no Sig Sauer licensing on the KWC version. You also do not get the ugly white warning instructions so there is a bit of a trade-off here and the KWC version also comes with a fully adjustable rear sight which is nice if your aim point is off a bit. Overall the KWC Model 226-S5 Sig Sauer CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is super realistic with its full blowback operation, full size drop out metal magazine and ability to filed strip just like the real steel Sig Sauer it replicates.

Pros:

  • All metal construction - Extremely good weight and solid feeling gun. As real as you can get.
  • Heavy blowback action.
  • Accurate X-five replica without the Sig Licensing or white warning instructions.
  • Awesome training gun.
  • Both SA & DA with excellent trigger pull, very smooth and light.
  • Has the fully adjustable rear sight for windage and elevation.
  • Nice high capacity full size drops out metal magazine.
  • Fully field strippable.

Cons:

  • Top loading magazine only.
  • Sacrifice some fps and shots per CO2 because of the heavy blowback but worth it.
  • Finish is prone to wear on the high spots and metal on metal areas 

Comments: I am really looking forward to my Field Test Shooting video for this Airsoft pistol, the KWC Model 226-S5 Sig Sauer is a nice big heavy pistol with lots of blowback, right up my alley! I am hoping the hop-up will keep this gun in the same accuracy zone as the 4.5mm X-Five version, I may just have to test them head to head to find out? If you're a Sig Sauer fan like me, and require a solid useable Airsoft pistol for gaming or just plinking, the KWC Model 226-S5 Sig Sauer CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol should do the job well and at a price point that is very reasonable.

A good spare secondary pistol

I just got this gun and the first impression out of the box is really great. The good amount of weight, the slide cocking sound, the magazine is realistic. Some paint wear is expected because its KWC gun. However, what surprise me is the grip does not attach to each other well even I tried to tighten the screws. I can see the "crack" between the grips where the two pieces of the grips meet.

good starter pistol

I have been using this 226 a long while ago and it as worked wonders its only downfall to me is the lack of propper sight but apart from that it has lived trough hell and came out glorious as sand, mud, dust, water and more than enough falls to break any pistol this one just keep on kicking since recoil is pretty nice for smallarm and accuracy is, once your used to the sights, very good up to mid range it is my favorite sidearm so far and I have twelve pistol ranging from mauser and magnum to m9 and glock so far hes the best of all for durability and acuracy grouping 1 inch in twenty shots thirty feet away very good buy.
