Sig Sauer P226 X5 Tactical

Hello Friends!

I wanted to take a few minutes to share something with my fellow Enthusiasts - I FINALLY managed to get my hands on a Beautiful P226 X5 Tactical.

For those of you that I have been communicating with, you all know that I have been wanting one of the X5 series since Thanksgiving of Last year (2011). It has been Brutal with savings and even more painful with having to be patient and wait this long.

As soon as my Camer arrives, I will be happy to post pics for your viewing pleasure. I may just use my the camera from my Smartphone if the camera i ordered is delayed. Keep in touch or sub to the thread.

I will also post pics on the thread dedicated to "gun porn" lol


Thanks all, and happy/ safe shooting.


JD

Great buy. Sometimes I get this itch and want to sell one of my P226 and go buy an X-5 but just cant get myself to do that. That X-5 is sweet.

Thumbs up Pictures of X5 Tactical

Alright Folks, sorry it took forever, but here they are. Keep in mind that I had to take these pics on my Smartphone (cancelled order for camera - long story). I was in the midst of cleaning BOTH my new purchases (X5 Tactical - my fav and my new H&K 45). I know the focus is mainly on the X5, but please bare with me. I had to put something together randomly. I apologize again in advance for poor lighting and "non Museum" quality lol




-Normal open case view




-Out of the box, left side view.



-Had to think of a way to capture Box, Case, and the Beautiful Masterpiece.



-Sig Light Night Sights




-As stated, an overview of BOTH recent purchase. Both brand new- first time Cleaning. Never been fired - except from Factory test of course.




-Side view of both H&K and X5



-Angled.




-Prior Cleaning

I was debating the all Round for a LONG time. Who knows, I may acquire that in the near future as well.

Forgive my ignorance, but whats the difference between the X5 and the X5 (L1). If it helps, mine is:

1 - SAO (very short trigger reset)
2 - 5 inch barrel
3 - 2- 15 round Mags
4 - 9 mm
5 - Extended Beaver tail
6 - 1911 inspired safety (ambi). can be carried "cocked and locked"
7 - Sig Light night sights.

I scanned through your OTHER thread "226X5L1 or 226X6L1 9mm" and found that there was no difference between MINE and the 226X5L1. the X6 - I understand has a SIX inch barrel and per your thread - costs $300 (which is mind boggling) LESS than the X5
