Things I liked: Nothing
Things I would have changed: Everything as it does not work well with the Sig P226 X Five Open Combo. It has a flat base and does not have the extending base bumper that comes with the mag supplied with the pistol. Hence, It has to be shoved into the pistol and the follower often sticks and does not keep pushing the bbs up.
What others should know: Look around for the mag that comes with the pistol.
Things I liked: It's hard to like something I wish I had not bought.
Things I would have changed: Correct listing to show that this is unsuitable for the P226 X-Five Open model.
What others should know: This mag, while listed as a recommended accessory by Pyramyd for the X-Five Open (model 28852), is not suitable for that model. And as far as I can tell, no extra mags are available for that model, which has an extended mag well and requires a magazine bumper 1/4" longer than this one. This mag can be shoved up deep inside the X-Five Open and will function so I'm keeping it, but feel I was misled. For the record, the mag's packaging says it is meant for the model 28851 and the item's description does say that it fits models with fixed sights, but I trusted the recommendation, which was in error. And speaking of errors, the packaging says it holds 21 rounds, not true.
Things I liked: I really like the fact that it is a replicated model of the actual magazine belonging to the Sig X5 that many special forces and several law enforcement agencies use. The mag is heavy and designed exactly like a real Sig Sauer mag with floor plate and frame work.
Things I would have changed: I would only make the Co2 feed line and seal in a better quality since I had one out of three purchased mags replaced.
What others should know: I don't suggest using finger nails for holding the spring follower down while loading. Try using a small to medium flat head screw driver.

I get that it workswith the "plain" P226 X-Five, but will this work with the P226 X-Five Open Combo? Concern lies with the Open version's magwell.... as this is a flat base and the magwell seems to add some extra deepness.... Has anyone test it this on the Open Combo version? So upon reading the reviews, seems several people have issues with them on the Open version, a seem to work fix relates removing the extended magwell... thus defeating the purpose.... I'll keep looking..... else I will go with the plain P226....
Does this magazine include at least one new screw that holds the co2 cartridges in place?
Yes, plus a hex wrench too.
Is the mag metal or plastic?
Yikes, plastic mag's for a GBB Pistol?? I've never even heard of one. Even those that try to emulate polymer mag's might only have a plastic shell on the outside but actually covering up a metal body. Now, some NBB pistols have mag's that are either metal or plastic. Umarex's USP is one example.
