Competition shooters just got delivered on a long-time big ask from SIG Sauer. The new American-made SIG P226-XFIVE brings the championship-winning platform more readily available to U.S. shores, made right here in the USA. Now you too can run the gun made famous by Max Michel in high-level pistol competitions around the world.
Michel straight up dominated with the original X-FIVE. Now SIG Custom Works brings that same platform and performance back stronger for the U.S. market. Based on SIG’s popular P226, the 9mm SAO pistol sports a 5-inch bull barrel and stainless steel frame. Together, it blends into a shooting machine.
SIG P226-XFIVE Details
The P226-XFIVE features a ton of modularity in its design to enhance shooter performance. It incorporates a fully adjustable trigger for pull weight and over-travel. Meanwhile, the trigger shoe removes and adjusts for length-of-pull. A adjustable Dawson-style rear sight also removes, making way for a direct-mount ROMEO1PRO, ROMEO2, or other optic utilizing the PRO footprint. The pistol ships with three, 20-round steel magazines featuring alloy base pads.
Classic Model Available
For those more tuned in to the classic appeal of guns, SIG will also offer a new XFIVE with a twist. The CLASSIC comes with the XSeries optic-ready slide, a 5-inch bull barrel and fully adjustable trigger. Additionally, the pistol sports Hogue Cocobolo grips with an ally magwell.
