By Reynaldo from USA on 2011-09-12 13:47:21Things I liked:I just received my Sig-Sauer P226 X-Five CO2 open version. I am very much satisfied with this BB gun that after testing it with just 18 rounds of BBs, here I am writing my review already. It is quite accurate, very realistic, and a fun to shoot. I already own two Umarex SA-177, one Walther CP99 compact, two Walther PPK, one Beretta FX-4, and one Gamo PT-85 (all blowback pistols)and I admit that my new Sig Sauer is the best.
Things I would have changed:They should have made the CO2 cartridge plug/screw metal also and not plastic...for obvious reason.
What others should know:I don't find it advisable to load BBs from that small hole at the tip of the magazine. Here's my suggestion in loading this gun (just like what I've been doing in loading my SA-177, CP99 compact, and the PPK)...find a regular soda straw, tape/plug the other end so that it will trap the BBs, cut the other end long enough to hold just 18 rounds (you cannot load over 18 rounds because you won't be able to insert the magazine properly). With your left thumb, slide down the spring up to the point where the magazine opening is wider, then fill the magazine easily with the straw "speed loader". I've purchased and tried the Umarex speed loader before but I found it difficult to load magazines so I came up with this inexpensive idea of reloading magazines. Try it!

By Jason from USA on 2011-12-09 22:11:11Things I liked:magazine, blowback action, and accuracy
Things I would have changed:reliability
What others should know:initially i really liked this bb gun, it was fun to shoot and very accurate. however, after shooting less than 250 bb's i began having problems with it. the gun will at random completely empty a brand new co2 cartridge within the first 5 shots. prior to that problem i would experience occasional misfires that would result with 2 bb's stuck in the barrel - very annoying to have to find something to ram the barrel with to clear it. i thought this bb gun would have been a good trainer to shoot in the back yard, but in hindsight i should have just bought cb caps for my .22 rimfire.
