Over the last few months, SIG has been releasing a number of new firearm models varying from the P365 line with their new Macro pistols to the MCX LT series.SIG has decided to bring out something for the full-size metal frame handgun lovers.
Traditionally, the XFIVE line of pistols was made in Germany, but now SIG has decided to build a fully American-made SIG P226 XFIVE.
I was approached by SIG to get an early example to review and after almost 1,000 rounds through the gun, I have come to some conclusions about this heavy hitter.
Let’s take a closer look at SIG Sauer’s New P226 XFIVE pistol.
SIG took the overall idea of the P226 and turned it up to 11.The stainless steel finish paired with either G10 grips or wood grips makes it feel like a high-end firearm immediately with thought-out ergonomics.
Chambered in the 9mm Luger with a 5″ barrel, the SIG P226 XFIVE is most certainly a full-size competition handgun.
From the factory, SIG ships the P226 XFIVE with a SIG Custom Works lockable hard case with a custom foam insert to fit the pistol, challenge coin, as well as 2 spare magazines as standard.
When it comes to the handgun, SIG put every option on this firearm.
As standard, the P226 XFIVE comes with adjustable target sights and the slide is cut for the addition of a red dot sight.
The sights are a precision green fiber optic front sight with a completely blacked-out rear sight.
SIG decided to keep the single action only trigger in the new American-made XFIVE.
My example breaks at a clean 4lbs and has become even cleaner over the course of shooting 900 rounds through it.
The original P226 XFIVE quickly became known the world over as the ultimate target pistol.
Now SIG Custom Works is bringing that same legendary performance and precision back with an all new P226-XFIVE.
Based on the venerable P226 platform, this 9mm Single-Action Only pistol is designed for maximum performance with a 5-inch bull barrel and a stainless steel frame delivering a smooth, flawless action and unrivaled accuracy.
The P226 XFIVE can be adapted to any shooter’s preference with a fully adjustable trigger for pull weight, over-travel and a trigger shoe that is removeable and adjustable for length-of-pull.
The adjustable Dawson-style rear sight plate can be removed to direct-mount a ROMEO1PRO, ROMEO2, or any other optic using the standard PRO footprint.
The P226 XFIVE is a Custom Works production release and comes with three 20-Round steel magazines with alloy base pads
