Things I liked:

At 30 feet I don't have to aim and can put 7 rounds in 3.5 inches. It might take over a week to leak out a Co2 cartridge.

Things I would have changed:

Added a laser sight.

What others should know:

Best co2 pistol I've ever owned!

    Things I liked:

    When I bought my first Generation P226 Co2 pistol the advertised FPS for this model was 450 or 480? I know for a fact it wasn't 380 fps because I wouldn't have bought it. But even on Sig's website it says 380 FPS now. Did they actually knock down the FPS???!!! Mine hits hard using H&N hollow points.

    Things I would have changed:

    Tighten the slide from the factory (I did this myself) Would have preferred the chamber cut out in the slide for the ultimate replica experience. I'm very disappointed that the FPS in these current production models have been reduced to down to 380 FPS.

    What others should know:

    A HUGE disappointment that Sig reduced the FPS from 450 down to 380.

    Things I liked:

    Looks and feels so much like the real 9mm pistol.

    Things I would have changed:

    The magazine 20 round belt fed is a disaster. My first 20 rounds gun jammed 7 times. Who wants to drop the magazine each time if possible to check pellets. I found that a . 177 cleaning rod gently pushed into the barrel will sometime let you push back the jammed pellet, then you gotta drop the magazine and dispose of that pellet. VERY AGGRAVATING!! But I really liked the feel of the gun so I kepted it about 2 more weeks and tried to shoot it on the weekends. I finally tried adding a drop or two of gun oil to help the belt feed move more freely, no good. So I'm thinking I'm gonna send it back next weekend. But by then I had a pellet jam in the barrel unknowingly and tried to shoot again and it jammed. It was while trying to push the second pellet back so I could drop the magazine I couldn't because the other pellet was jammed in the barrel. Now I could not even drop the magazine and I couldn't use my push rod because the pellet in the barrel was completely stuck. Paper weight now!

    What others should know:

    When Sig Saur fixes the belt fed pellet problem I'll order me another one. Very high quality but poor design with the belt fed delivery for the pellets. I sent mine back for a refund. Make sure when buying there is at least a 60 return policy.

    Things I liked:

    Well built and sturdy. It is made of metal not plastic with good weight. It is made in Japan.

    Things I would have changed:

    The magazine will drop easily and its blowback wastes much gas.

    What others should know:

    Its magazine is totally compatible with Gamo P430.

    Things I liked:

    I purchased this CO2 pistol to go with my MantisX training system. The weight, feel and action of this pistol work out very well for indoor practice (of course no pellets loaded) and can dial in my shooting. No modification needed to continually fire this pistol with the mantisX.

    Things I would have changed:

    loading this with a new CO2 cartridge can be a bit tricky and the access door isn't easy to open. The trigger pull and feel could be improved, but not terrible for its purpose.

    What others should know:

    accuracy of it as a pellet pistol is good as well if you chose to use it that way.

    Things I liked:

    Imitates my real Sig P226 well. Familiar controls. Good trainer in that respect.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better accuracy. More importantly, more consistent use of gas. The first few shots are hot & high, next 5-8 are more or less predictable and then it starts lobbing jelly doughnuts.

    What others should know:

    Gas use as mentioned above. Not powerful enough to trip BB rated steel targets. Great for a 226 trainer. Otherwise, I'd look at other options.

    One of the better co2 powered pistols on the market.

    Things I liked:

    When I first take it out the package I like the weight of it. It feels like a solid gun like it will last for a long time. I don't see how this going to get so many bad reviews, I've owned A P 25 and pt-85 for since they came out are those are real good guns but this sig Sauer close it out of the water completely. I get around 48 shots till empty and to me that is good for a blowback CO2 that is very powerful. I use Winchester maximum velocity and mines and those work the best. This gun have crazy power, especially since I'm in Las Vegas right now and it's a 110 degrees outside.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe an open port projector but it really don't need one. Other than that I would change nothing.

    What others should know:

    This guy is very powerful definitely if you are just getting into are guns. Also this gun is very very loud sounds like a 22. Also it is extremely accurate Sig Sauer did a good job with this .

    Things I liked:

    I like the blow back action and weight of the pistol - loading CO2 is very easy. The pellet clips load easily into the gun and it is relatively easy to use.

    Things I would have changed:

    The pellet clips are very finicky to load - you really have to center the pellets in the clip in order for it fire properly. Also the clips have a tendency not to revolve after discharging a pellet leaving an empty round chambered. I have three clips for this pistol and they all have a tendency to skip rounds especially after rapid cycling. In addition, the accuracy of this pistol is almost non-existent even with high end match rounds. groups are well outside what you would expect for a higher end training pistol - especially from Sig Sauer. I have regular Sig P220 chambered in .45 Cal and it is very accurate weapon. This gun needs tritium sights, better accuracy testing and a better magazine mechanism.

    What others should know:

    When I ordered this pistol it was back ordered and I had done a lot of research looking for a fairly accurate pistol with blow back action and high FPS rating. I have shot over 1000 rounds using H&N brand pellets and have tried varying pellet weights ranging from 7 grains to 10 grains. The accuracy leaves much to be desired - 5" groups are almost impossible to achieve even when fairly close . Overall not impressed with this pistol. I am considering purchasing a new pistol from a different manufacturer. I would not recommend this pistol - especially when the price point is close to $100.00. I have Daisy brand C02 BB gun that requires cycling after each shot that provides better accuracy and consistency than the Sig P226.

    Not much to like about this gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    The next time I purchase a gun it will be from a supplier where I can try the gun before I purchase it.

    What others should know:

    Accuracy is not good. Trigger pull is terrible and it doesn't have enough power to penetrate a cardboard box at 20 feet. Now I have a gun I can't return because I fired one clip of pellets through it only to find out it was nothing as described.

    Things I liked:

    Feel and weight of the gun are fantastic. Fit and finish of all the parts including the slide are Sig spot on, no rattles or play in any moving part. Feels balanced and solid in the hand. Excellent trigger pull and shoots quite accurately with wadcutters. And the CO2 loading couldn't be easier. Awesome replica!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    This gun is very well made and functions great. Don't miss out on this one!

    The weight and feel of the pistol are very nice. Accuracy is what you would expect from a pistol. Would make a good train ring weapon

    Things I would have changed:

    I would absolutely change the style of the clip. True, it holds 16 rounds but you have to flip it halfway there. The magazine also ejects out accidently if you happen to be left handed, which I am.
