Ok guys, here is my report, however un professional it is! The fit and finish on this pistol is first rate, you would expect nothing less fron a pistol that costs over 2k! I fired 150 rounds of Winchester white box with zero failures. (By the way, this one is chambered in .40) Recoil was very mild considering this is a 47 oz pistol. Sights were right on, and adjustable if they weren't. Mag feeds were smooth and easy due to the jet funnel. Trigger is fully adjustable and very, very nice! It breaks light and crisp. Grips are very nice looking and feel great. The mag release is extended and may be in the way for some shooters. Accuracy was much better than me! This is truly a one hole wonder! In short, it is pretty expensive. but I feel you get what you pay for. If this sorry excuse for a review left you with any unanswered questions, ask away!

Sounds like you had fun, and sounds like you like your new toy!! I just want 1 or 2 of the X5 mags for my 226. Of course I will have to paint the silver plate at the bottom but that is not a problem. Glad you enjoy it..........it sounds like a tac driver.

X-5 mags are Mecgar 17rounders with a plus 2 baseplate, and are expensive as all hell. Pierce Grips makes a +2 base for Sig Mags, and Sig also markets a 20rd mag that is about $30 cheaper than X-5 mags. Put a mecgar or P22610rd mag follower in a 20rd mag and you get a 22rd capacity as well.

I’m getting one… I saw one in Austin Wednesday. It is the finest production pistol I have ever held in my hand. The grip is superb and 700_5R is right, the trigger is amazing.

If there has ever been a PERFECT out of the box limited class IPSC/USPSA firearm, this has to be it. I am getting one as soon as I recover from having new hard-wood floors installed for my wife’s Christmas present.

The shop does 12 months same as cash, so this will likely be the 1st gun I have ever financed.

Does the safety decock the pistol?
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 1:58:41 PM EDT
No. It is like a 1911. Single action.

Roger. I knew it was single action, but I was wondering if Sig added some method of decocking it. Though I suppose that would be pretty useless on a SA pistol, so nevermind.
