Trigger Pull: What you would expect from a blowback pistol with true single action capability. It's nice and light with a short take-up in single action. Also decent when shooting in double action, which for the most part you will not be doing since the blowback pre-cocks the hammer for single action shooting.

Build Quality: Very good. Pretty much an all metal construction, with good weight and craftsmanship. Slide wiggle is minimal, and the fit and finish is good. As with many of the KWC airguns that use an electromagnetic powder coating, the finish looks great but it's thin so it does wear off on the high posts and where metal on metal movement takes place.

Realism: Compared to the real steel Sig Sauer X-Five, the KWC version is pretty close. It does have a different-looking slide in terms of the grooves or slide serrations, and there is no official licensing on the KWC version. You also do not get the ugly white warning instructions so there is a trade off here, and the KWC version also comes with a fully adjustable rear sight which is nice if your aim point is off a bit. Overall, the KWC SP226-S5 CO2 Blowback Pistol is super realistic with its full blowback operation, full size drop out metal magazine, and ability to field strip just like the real steel Sig Sauer P226.

Pros:

  • Accurate X-Five replica without the licensing or white warning instructions
  • All metal construction feels solid and gives gun good weight
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage and elevation
  • Firm blowback action adds to shooting realism
  • Shoots in both single and double action with a smooth and light trigger pull
  • High capacity full metal drop out metal magazine
  • Fully field-strippable like the real steel Sig Sauer P226

Cons:

  • Finish is prone to wear on the high spots and metal on metal areas
  • FPS and CO2 sacrificed for heavy blowback action

Comments: This BB pistol is styled after the modern Sig Sauer P226 X-Five. It is a very hefty gun made almost entirely from metal and has a very snappy blowback action which adds to its shooting realism. Even the magazine looks and feels like a real magazine with its similar weight and dimensions. The gun shoots fairly accurately and has fairly decent power considering its blowback function, which does result in heavy CO2 usage. I was able to get about 3 magazines out of a CO2 cartridge. This is one of my favourite airguns because its so true to form and function. If you're a Sig Sauer fan like me, and require a solid useable pistol for gaming or just plinking, the KWC SP226-S5 should do the job well and at a very reasonable price point.

This video is a walkthrough Review of the Cybergun Sig Sauer X-Five P226 CO2 BB Gun. I show off the gun close up and do a field strip, I also take you through many of the features and do a side by side comparison a with an actual 9mm Sig.

This is a very realistic and fun gun to shoot, it would make a great training pistol as just about everything about it works like the real steel!
