SIG Sauer P226 X-Five Open pistol
NOTE: The owner's manual states that this has BAX Hop-Up, but it does not.
Although this gun appears to have a half-cock safety, the pistol does not function like that and would need to be fully cocked and on safe to be carried at the ready. Carrying this pistol half-cocked with the safety on may cause accidental discharge and is not recommended.
Read more about the SIG Sauer P226 X-Five Open pistol in Dennis Adler's Airgun Experience blog.
An incredibly realistic airgun that's a great all-day plinker but also suitable for maintaining firearm proficiency. The slide moves, the gun feels and handles like the P226 firearm, and it functions smoothly and flawlessly. Of the air pistols that we've tested, the SIG Sauer P226 X-Five Open has proven to be one of the most accurate. Usually, BB guns aren't that accurate...but this one will surprise you!

Things I liked: Excellent feel and weight. Field strips like the real steel. Everything you'd want in a blow back bb pistol. Yeah, it uses a lot of CO2, but you wouldn't buy a Ferrari and complain about gas mileage, right? Pretty accurate after a tweak here and there, can plink cans up to 40yds with a steady hand. With the new price change to this open version, why not? I don't use a red dot, so I never use the rail, but when mounted, it makes a very solid add on sight mount. I've already purchased a 2nd, as I have 2 boys, and they both love this pistol. Buy a 2nd mag and yes, the standard X Five mags work just fine within the extended mag well of the open version, just need to make sure it's fully seated.
Things I would have changed: Safety ONLY works when fully decocked! Pistol will fire with safety on and cocked/chambered. In fact, my son shot an entire mag in SA with safety on. Make the guide rod spring shorter to prevent slide breakage(see below for fix)
What others should know: My first time with this pistol, it blew the nose off the slide within 10 mags. Problem solved with a small mod. If you field strip it down, take the heavy spring off the guide rod and with a dremel, cut 3 coils off the fully compressed side of the spring. When the slide blows back, both springs on the guide rod won't fully compress, creating a "spring stop" on the lower part of the slide that will eventually break it off. Also, while you have the guide rod stripped, take a file to the flash that is still there from the casting process and make sure the rod is smooth and the springs rotate freely and smoothly. Definitely do the electrical tape wrap around the inner barrel, build it up right behind the factory o-ring until the inner barrel slides freely, but doesn't wobble inside the outer barrel. I also removed the compensator and extension and hit the tip with a shot of flat black. Basically a standard X Five with extended mag well and adjustable sights.
Things I liked: Approx 1,000 B.B.s shot without problems. Very accurate, pop cans shredded at 50 to 75 feet with open sights.I Shot indoor competitive for years. This gun feels like the real McCoy.
Things I would have changed: BB a are a little challenging to load into the clip but with a little practice it can be accomplished fairly easily.
What others should know: For the price it is one great piece. The heft, function, feel and accuracy are all 10s. Buy one and enjoy.
Things I liked: This gun came today and i shot 2 full magazines thru it. It functioned so amazing. The loudness wasnt that loud. It was much quieter than my S&W model 327 trr8. I just love the fact that i got a compensator & a rail & a tactical magazine for $80. The original one without the feature was $100 so this was a super good deal for me. I basically got this gun itself only for about $68. The magazine and the slide felt like the real gun and I really love it. the slide catch works like the real gun and everything else except for the decocker but it is possible to decock this gun by decocking like the revolver. No malfunctions yet. Also the CO2 in the magazine does not leak at all!!! I shot this gun with the laser sight and aiming with the laser sight is as accurate as aiming with the factory sight. Very very accurate gun. And it feels like a 22lr gun with the blowback.
Things I would have changed: maybe the decocker should be added if possible. And white dot on front sight (I can definitely do that but it will be nice if it came with the gun).
What others should know: as long as you dont put your co2 in your gun for too long, your co2 will not leak. I recommend less than 1 hour even thou the manufacturer says 24 hours. Also, do not field strip this gun if you are not familiar with firearms. And always wear safety glasses!!!

i have this same in airsoft and like .is the bb gun as good as the airsoft the one i have is good fast looks nice with comp.
Does the open combo come with just accessories or with the gun as well?
This is a race/competition pistol as depicted in the photos. It is NOT an accessories package. You would know if you'd bother to read the descriptions.
The descriptions list the FPS at 376 for this gun while the standard X-5 is listed at only 300. Is this version really capable of that velocity?
I highly doubt that the velocity is higher than 300-320 fps like every other kwc replica co2 pistol...it's not unusual for PA or the airgun makers to greatly exaggerate their velocity ratings.
