Comments: This BB pistol functions very similarly to the real steel handgun. It has real heft to it and 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. It shoots very accurately for a CO2 airgun and has fairly decent power considering its heavy blowback function. It can shoot through 3 magazines on a single 12 gram CO2 cartridge.
Very happy with the pistol at first. Haven’t used one package of 25 CO2 cartridges yet and the gun has had the biscuit. Manufacturer says taking gun apart voids all warranty, take it to your retailer first for repairs. Having bought it from amazon, I’m out of luck - must return to Minnesota for repairs. So, out of a sense of adventure, I decided to field strip the gun. Found the blow back mechanism was pooched as the main spring had partially uncoiled and was dragging along the shaft causing deep grooves and jamming the mechanism. I monkeyed with it to no avail. I’d think twice before buying this poorly made gun.

This is a great gun, good blowback. Looks like a real Sig. I have the silver version with the adjustable sights, which i recommend. I have mine dialed in nicely. The gun is very accurate, I can get most shots in a 1 inch group at 20-25ft. My only complaint is that the slide release is too close to the safety which makes it a bit hard to release the slide with one hand.

This video is a walkthrough Review of the Cybergun Sig Sauer X-Five P226 CO2 BB Gun. I show off the gun close up and do a field strip, I also take you through many of the features and do a side by side comparison a with an actual 9mm Sig.
This is a very realistic and fun gun to shoot, it would make a great training pistol as just about everything about it works like the real steel!
