Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Sig Sauer MCX ASP .177 Caliber CO2 Pellet Rifle is actually pretty light and smooth when you consider the first part of the trigger pull is used to advance the belt fed 30 round magazine. You would think there would be more added friction from the belt but this does not seem to be the case. There is some internal blowback action going on but it is only used to cock the internal bolt/striker which does lesson the overall amount of trigger pull required. The trigger pull is fairly short considering all that is going on and it's not overly heavy so quick and predictable action shooting is more than possible with the Sig Sauer MCX ASP .177 Caliber CO2 Pellet Rifle.
Accuracy: So far I have not done my official Field Test Shooting Video for the Sig Sauer MCX ASP .177 Caliber CO2 Pellet Rifle. That said I have performed shooting test with my Sig Sauer MPX and Sig Sauer MCX Virtus. Both of these Sig Sauer similar styled Air rifles where able to get nee tight groupings close to .5 inch groupings form 30 feet and 50 feet respectively. It will be interesting to see what the actual fps is using a standard lead .177 caliber pellet as the rating on the box is in Joules and not fps. I will assume a little under 500 fps.
Build Quality: The build quality for Sig Sauer MCX ASP .177 Caliber CO2 Pellet Rifle is very good, you can tell Sig Sauer had a lot of hands on in the design and production of this Pellet Shooting Air Rifle! The materials used and fit and finish are top notch and the mechanical function again is really good. I am kind of amazed at how well Sigs belt fed magazine design works in terms of feeding and operation as all the Sig ASP Rifles use the same mechanical system and magazines. Sig also tests their APS Rifle line to withstand 15,000 rounds reliably.
Realism: The Sig Sauer MCX ASP .177 Caliber CO2 Pellet Rifle is a 1 to 1 replica of the real steel Sig Sauer MCX Rifle and looks absolutely the part other than the rear stock which has to accommodate the 90 gram CO2 tank. If you didn't know the rear stock was covering up the large 90 gram CO2 you probably wouldn’t have any idea and would probably think it was juts an aftermarket rear stock. Everything else about the Sig Sauer MCX ASP .177 Caliber CO2 Pellet Rifle is pretty much bang on in terms of realism including a fully working ambidextrous selector, magazine release and drop out magazine, charging handle and pop up sights.
I really like the line of Sig Sauer Asp Pellet Rifles and it’s nice to know have one to offer to our Canadian Online Replica Airgun Shoppers! Some people have given the SIG ASP Air Rifle Line a bad rap but I think fo rte most part this is due to poor pellet choice. My findings with all of the Sig Sauer ASP Air Rifles is that once you find a pellet that works with it, you will have consistent pellet feeding and excellent accuracy. There are now a lot of CO2 BB Modern design Air Rifles out there but not many that shoot pellets in semi auto with a rifled barrel and high capacity magazine . Sig Sauer has done a great job bringing this missing product to the Airgun industry.
