Things I liked:

If it's the same dimensions as the 1911, you can mount a UM3 rail and put a red dot up top.

    Things I liked:

    The mag capacity.. with Co2 it starts to drop off after one mag. But give it a minute and it comes right back. Its a very quiet pistol. I love the ability to adjust sights completely.. very rare in a Co2 pistol. And it works good.. nice clicks for each adjustment. I can keep it accurate out to 40ft.. after that, not so much.

    Things I would have changed:

    The mag does have a tendency to jam.. Better design maybe..

    What others should know:

    If you load the belt in the mag with lithium grease it works fine, and just stays smooth.. after about 2 months I had to work some more into the belt.. no jams after that.

    Things I liked:

    Solid metal, heavy and feels very similar to the Sig X-Five. The CO2 cartridge loading system is the best I've seen and very easy to load perfectly every time. Adjustable sights (wish all pellet pistols had it). Not a squirrel killer, but a great backyard plinker.

    Things I would have changed:

    1. The 20-round pellet magazine has 2 side holes near the top that make it difficult the rotate the chain to load it, they should just remove those two access holes and it would be better. 2. Once your CO2 gets down a bit (especially if you fire fast and the CO2 gets cold), the blowback action will intermittently fail to reset the trigger. 3. The safety is really stiff and hard to engage with your thumb, but is easy enough to release. Pelgun oil might fix this. 4. After firing 20 rounds, if I check the magazine, there will be a few stray intermittent rounds that didn't fire, but luckily haven't jammed in the barrel 5. I would prefer a version without the blowback and DAO to save CO2. I shoot 3 mags (60 rounds) and swap the CO2 6. I would like a decocker as there is no way to drop the hammer manually with CO2 in the gun unless the blowback fails as described in #2

    What others should know:

    This is a plinker and its accurate at 20 yards for shooting tin cans or small airgun targets. I love the feel and the weight, versus cheaper co2 guns. For the money, its worth it. I also recommend using Alloy pellets to get higher FPS. As others will warn you, ONLY use Wadcutter/flat head ammo. Pointed/rounded ammo is problematic in this gun. I'm using H&N Match Green Pellets (TIN) with good results. The trigger rotates the mag and then fires, it DOES NOT feel like a regular trigger so as a trainer, it's limited in that respect. I recommend an Air Venturi pellet pen which helps speed up loading the magazine. Overall, its pretty much what I expected and I'm happy with my purchase.

    Things I liked:

    Great looks. Very detailed and authentic weight. I purchased this gun primarily because of the adjustable sights. The sights look and function very well. The CO2 loading system is a nice addition and is very easy to use.

    Things I would have changed:

    The trigger is the worst I have ever experienced in decades of hand-gunning. It is a two-stage process with the first stage used to rotate the belt magazine. This stage is predictable but very clunky. The second stage is very difficult to pull which results in poor accuracy. I bench tested this gun with 9 different high-quality pellets and could not get better than 2.5-3" groups at 21 feet. I think this is probably the result of the terrible trigger.

    What others should know:

    Make sure to apply non-petroleum lubrication to the magazines (silicone) and use a probe to seat each pellet in the magazine belt. A slick is felt when the pellet is properly seated. However, if seated too much, a jam will result. Both of these things seem to go a long way toward eliminating jams with the magazine. Jams also are caused when too many shots are attempted and the CO2 gas is low resulting in a pellet stuck in the barrel. I think the X5 is a nice pistol but wish it was more accurate. I own 5 centerfire Sigs and have come to expect a lot from this company. The X5 just did not deliver. It is probably OK for tin-can busting at close range where accuracy is less important.

    Things I liked:

    Adjustability and overall look of the sights. This is one of the main features that caused me to focus on the X5 over other Co2 pistols. I always want the point of impact to match my point of aim without having to employ Kentucky windage. The X5 provides this. The X5 has a unique way of allowing the Co2 cartridge to be installed that is much simpler than any other of the several pistols I own. The system is first-rate. I shot 5 magizines of RWS Hobby 7gr pellets at 7yds and constantly achieved 1.5-2" groups. I used this pellet because it has proven to be accurate in other Co2 guns I own and did not compare it to other pellet weights or manufactures' products. I thought this was very acceptable accuracy for a pistol of this type.

    Things I would have changed:

    I find the weight of the pistol to be rather heavy. I actually believe it may be heavier than an actual center-fire version. I own several full-sized, large-caliber pistols and think the X5 may well be heavier. The trigger feel is rather unusual at best and is definitely a two-stage operation. The first stage is used to ratchet a pellet from the belt-fed magazine into position for the next shot and has a long crunchy feeling to it. Once the mag. is positioned, the final let-off is predictable and fairly crisp. I found that I had easily mastered the trigger's feel after only firing a couple of magazines.

    What others should know:

    The magazine is an awkward thing to load, however, my experience with the mag. was simplified when I followed the suggestion of others to give the inside a good coat of oil and to use a suitable probe pusher to fully seat each pellet in the chain system. After doing these things I have not suffered any jams or stuck pellets which are things other X5 owners have complained about. Finally, I have used skateboard tape (just adhesive-backed sandpaper) on hanguns for years and found that adding a piece to the grip's backstrap greatly enhances the guns grip feel. My final comment is that this is a very interesting Co2 pistol and one that is a great deal of fun to shoot. I suggest that you purchase several additional magazines to be loaded at home before the shoot and have a wonderful day with it. It certainly has my recommendation.

    It is not very accurate. I'm not the only one that thinks that. I found out that a friend of mine in AZ bought the same gun a said it's no accurate at all. Wish he had told me before I waisted my money. Don't buy it.

    Things I liked:

    I recently purchased the X-Five and was testing different pellets. After about 200 rounds with no issue I used a different brand pellet and experienced a jam about 8 rounds into a magazine. The ONLY (and easy) way I found to fix the problem was a video online. What happens seems to be that a pellet is pushed partly out of the belt and now the gun won't fore and the magazine won't eject. At this point the jammed pellet needs to be pushed back into the belt. This is easily done with a wooden skewer or other small dowel. This seems to be an important tool for your bag. The first time this happens all you need to do is take the skewer and gently insert it into the barrel and gently push the pellet back into the belt. You can feel it click in and it will only need to be pushed a 1/4" or less. I now have a marked skewer for this purpose. Insert a loaded magazine and push the skewer in until it touches the pellet and then with a Sharpie mark the end of the barrel for a Jam reference.

    Things I would have changed:

    I have done tests and the jamming issue seems to be a pellet issue. I have shot 8 different pellets of different weights in different magazines and found 2 that jam regularly. Both seem to be a little tighter fit when pushing into the belt. If you find a pellet you like and it doesn't seem to have jamming issues stick with it. Other than the jamming issue which seems quite common and now you know how to fix it, this seem to be an excellent gun.

    What others should know:

    While I am still learning X-Five, I am keeping an extensive log on my opinions of the accuracy and jamming of different pellets and magazines and you should too until you settle into what your favorites are. I have also found I can get over 100 shots out of a CO2 cartridge just give it time to recover occasionally.

    Things I liked:

    Got mine on 07 Feb 21. I like it. Feels good in my hand. The weight is very close to the powder burner. The adjustable rear sight allows you to shoot point of aim. Shooting POI is much more enjoyable than compensating all the time with some of the other replica handguns I have. Having read the negative points in other reviews I find that I'm very lucky getting a good example. I have not experienced any jams. I do seat the pellets in the belt mag. I am shooting N&N Excite Econ II .177 cal, 7.4 Grain, Wadcutters, Pyramyd # H&N Excite Econ II 4.5mm.... They are inexpensive and the accuracy is around 2.5 inches at 18 ft. offhand. They fit snug in the belt mag but not too tight. Just tight enough that they won't fall out when seating them and shooting. The trigger pull is a bit different in that the first stage is moving the belt mag to the let off point and just a bit more pressure will discharge the round.

    Things I would have changed:

    A bit faster FPS.

    What others should know:

    I don't have measuring equipment, but the weight of the trigger pull is not objectionable to me. Testing for gas leaks; it holds air for at least two days probably more, but I don't let it go beyond that. I have occasionally left a round in the mag, and I attribute this to short resetting the trigger. I have emptied a tin of 500 rounds with zero problems and started a second tin. I will be looking for a holster. Did I mention I like it? If you have small hands, you may want to consider another pistol. No sense being disappointed. The X5 is large. Always buy extra mags. I will be looking for a holster.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better accuracy. Slide lock back after last round. Double action for first round.

    What others should know:

    I was reluctant to make this purchase because I read many views that the gun and the magazine were prone to jamming. I have shot hundreds of rounds through this gun so far with wadcutter pellets and have not encountered a single jam. I was also pleased that I can shoot over 60 rounds on a CO2 to capsule. With the blowback feature I was not expecting to get that many shots from a capsule was pleasantly surprised. Not a target gun by any means but a good trainer for firearms. The adjustable site is a huge feature I am very surprised that more replicas arent available with Adjustable sights.

    Things I liked:

    Great fun plinker. It's definitely a summer gun. I am using a weed eater string to push back on jams. Sometimes these are related to a pellet not being pushed in far enough other times the belt kind moves out of place and binds up. The weed eater line pushes things back in line. I can put the gun on safe and rotate the clip to make sure it's functioning with the trigger. Putting a couple drops of pelgun on the joints of the clip every now and then helps to.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    Oil the clip.

    If you are purchasing this weapon to practice for IDPA OR USPSA don't do it. The trigger is far too slow and makes it very difficult to get a rhythm set. Also the power is so low that you will have a difficult time hearing the pellet hit a steel plate

    Things I liked:

    This gun has THE BEST C02 LOADING SYSTEM EVER. Just put the CO2 in and flip the lever closed. Fast, easy and works every time but sometimes the empty C02 cartridge gets stuck inside and takes some shaking to come out. ADJUSTABLE SIGHTS! why doesn't every air pistol have adjustable sights? (It costs the manufacturer money and reduces their profits. That's why.) If you buy a gun that hits 4 inches high and 5 inches to the right you should send it back as defective. Or just adjust the sights so they are on target. When I took my first shots the pellets were hitting way off but, thank you adjustable sights, I was able to sight it in so I hit where I aim. However, the rear sight is raised as high as it can go to hit the bullseye at 8 yards in my garage. The rear sight is also cranked waaaaay over to the right way off center and looks kinda funny off to one side. I like that there are no white dots on the sights. THE BUILD QUALITY is pretty good.

    Things I would have changed:

    THE TRIGGER is heavy. Really heavy. As you pull the trigger it rotates the belt magazine and you can feel it working. I don't mind that at all. But once you've worked through that you hit a brick wall. It's a tough trigger to teach a beginner with. THE MAGAZINE gets stuck. I think maybe the pellets fall out and get stuck in the barrel mid cycle. All I know is that I need a rod with me at all times to poke the pellet back in when it jams. This happens about every other magazine. Also, it somehow leaves one or two pellets unfired in the magazine every time.

    What others should know:

    I got this gun to replace my cybergun sig x-five open pistol which was a much, much better shooter. It was total garbage and broke in a catastrophic failure in under 500 shots but it was a blast to shoot. This one is not as fun to shoot. I've ended up not shooting it as much as I planned because it's just not fun. Who has fun clearing jams every other magazine.

    Things I liked:

    Realistic feel, trigger is ok for the money. It is great for draw and shoot practice

    Things I would have changed:

    Accuracy could be better. Pellet feeding is a little lacking. I had hoped to set up a little action pistol course but accuracy is lacking for precision shooting. I guess My expectations were unrealistic for this price point, I had read some reports that had my hopes up.

    What others should know:

    The first one I got would not get more than 8-10 shots without a jam. The pellet would not properly feed into the barrel. I would have. To use a cleaning rod to push the pellet back into the mag in order to remove the mag. This first pistol's accuracy was horable!! I think the mis feeds damaged many pellets that did in fact feed and shoot. I had two other mags to try with the same results. I exchanged for another X-Five. Great service from PA, thank you for that. The new gun accuracy is much better although not what I was hoping for (3" group at 10 yards) so I'm disappointed in the accuracy, I have some other quality pistols and shoot reasonably well, my experience was not as good as the reports I have read. The new gun has only jammed about 3 times in about 300 shots. Be sure to have a dowel of soft metal cleaning rod to push Jamed pellets back into the mag, it gets stuck partially in the barrel and mag at the same time so the mag can't be removed.
