The gun shoots very well although it does have a couple of sore spots. The lack of an adjustable sight is vexing and I can't understand why they chose not to include one although I have read that the option for replacing the fixed rear sight with an adjustable sight upgrade has been built in and will be offered in future. The trigger pull is another issue. The trigger has two ver distinct stages that perform different functions. When unloaded the trigger pulls at about 2 lbs. which for a pistol is quite good. Unfortunately, the moment you load the magazine and charge the gun with CO? that 2lbs. become 8+. The first stage which actually rotates the magazine belt is pretty gritty but nothing terrible. The issue is with the 2nd stage. Once the magazine has rotated and you come up against the sear and the pressure needed to fire the gun is far greater than when it's uncharged state. Naturally this presents a real problem with regards to accuracy. Having to exert this much pressure inevitably moves one off target resulting in some rather erratic POIs. At 10 meters (33 feet) it was everything I could do to keep the POIS within the 3" target circle.
At this price point, I liked this gun so much that I sent it off to my favorite gunsmith to see what he could do to improve the second stage pull weight. That will cost me at least as much as the retail price of the gun itself, but I feel that if he can improve it by 50% I will still be getting good value. I liked it so much in fact that the day I sent it off, I purchased it's predecessor the X-Five ASP and have been very please with that purchase as well.
I have not had any problems with the trigger or magazine.
This gun isn't to accurate I agree.
sloppy slide to rail fitment (rattles when shook). Trigger feels like it's being pulled through sand. Not what I expect from a $100.00 plus outlay. Sig need to revisit the design
