Sig Sauer 226X59AR P226 X-5 9mm 5" 19+1 Black Synthetic Grip
[226X59AR]
$1,393.00

This is a very nicely made pistol except for the trigger. It could be best described as a three-stage as delivered, with a moderate take-up, a stiffer gritty take-up as it disengages the firing pin safety, then an unpredictable gritty break. Double action is heavy and equally un-smooth. Sig offers a special "Auto Enhancement Package" for the X5AR for $199.99, but for a $1,400 pistol I expected more. I own over 20 Sigs including various 22x series in virtually every configuration and caliber including four Sig Sport models. This has the worst trigger of all.

Otherwise it's a beautiful pistol, well fitted and with the old-style internal 1911 extractor. It's also accurate with virtually no recoil...just a bad trigger. If I were doing over I would pay a few hundred more for one of the single action X5s.

There are not enough stars to rate Buds. Doing business with them was outstanding as usual.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
