Looked great, felt great, sprayed pellets as if the barrel wasn't rifled. Would not group at 7 yards, not even on the paper at 15 yards. Barrel was literally loose in the frame, trigger stiff and heavy, decocker rubbed on magazine release.

Good training pistol
March 5, 2019
At first I wasn't happy with it at all. However a friend who has one advised me to get it broke in.after 150 rounds it did much better. FPS is not near as on the box. However this would make an excellent training pistol. This is also the first blow back action type airgun in my collection, so I had to get used to that. In some YouTube videos you can learn to get the barrel from moving around so much making it more accurate.
ProsFeels alot like the real thing and good for novice or for someone to train with cheaper if they have the real gun. WORKS BEST WITH CROSMAN FULL COPPER PELLETS.
ConsManufacturer needs to get barrel slack out at the factory.

December 20, 2018
Functions well, shoots accurately with the rifled barrel. I've seen complaints of jamming and not firing all the pellets. This is probably because the half pull of the trigger rotates the magazine.
There is no trigger take up for this gun like a real firearm.

Can probably get 4-5 magazines out of one CO2 cartridge.

September 7, 2018
Great looking gun, feels realistic and accurate . Great power BUT for only about 15 shots , then completely looses power and you need to replace CO2 cartridge!
I guess because the slide is so heavy it eats up the gas so quickly. And it's not because it's leaking or broken , it was like that since I got it and I doubt it's a defective unit because my other Sig has a similar problem also. If you don't care about cost of CO2 then it's great and a lot of fun , but otherwise ... Beretta !

Disappointing operation
July 22, 2018
I bought the Sig P226 FDE Pellet Pistol on 6/29/18. I'm disappointed in its performance. I haven't got to shoot it very much. But I've ONLY shot around 2 clips and and the first CO2 cart has already ran out and now the clip won't come out. Also the gun misfires quite a bit. It doesn't advance to the next pellet half the time. I'm going to get ahold of Airgun Depot customer service on Monday (7/23/18). I haven't decided if I want a refund or replacement. I might try to get a replacement but if the second one performs the same I'll want a refund.
ProsEasy CO2 cartridge loading. Weight. Looks.
ConsUses CO2 very quickly. Misfires half the time. Clip gets stuck when CO2 runs low.
Best UsesTarget shooting. Pest control.

If looks were everything.
January 21, 2018
Great looking gun and has a great feel with the all metal construction and blowback slide. However, the entire barrel and slide assembly are loose out of the box and seem to float independently from the central gun frame. There is virtually no way this gun can be accurate due to this design. I've been doing sessions at 25 feet with it and had very scattered results with it. It's all over the place. Only on the most rare occasion does it drop one on a bull's eye and that's by sheer luck only. It's marginally accurate at 10 feet from target with groups inside 2".

The CO2 loading mechanism works really well. It's by far the easiest and fastest design yet. Grip feels great with no wiggling or rattling parts. The compartment and release for the CO2 at the back of the grip is well placed and the whole thing locks in to place really well when closed.

The revolving cartridge system doesn't hold BB's very well. Some of them will fall out of the barrel when you're not looking and you will dry fire if you didn't see it happen. Pellets seem to stay put but different pellets also seem to sit differently in the individual revolving chambers and had me wondering what effect they would have on fps due to this.

There's also no way this gun puts anything down range at the advertised 510 fps. I tried Raptor alloys and they couldn't even come close to my Crosman SR. 357 with an 6" barrel and the thing is amazingly accurate and moves pellets down range at well beyond its rated 475 fps after a trigger back pressure mod. There's no way this Sig Sauer even comes close to the velocity that the Crosman delivers.

It's a decent first blowback pistol for someone who wants a gun that looks like the real thing. Just be aware that there are ones out there that look as cool and deliver a real punch at the target. This one looks great out of the box but falls short on it's main purpose. I wish I'd have saved my money for another break barrel or under-lever. I'd have been better off.
ProsLook and feel is good, the matte finish is nice, CO2 loading, grip is nice, lower picatinny rail is key, dual action is better for accuracy, can fire through 16 rounds quickly and easily. Trigger actually feels really good.
ConsNot as accurate as I had hoped and the velocity wasn't there. Feels like it could be better built for the money.

By Andre
A flawed design with some redeeming qualties
August 23, 2017

Well it feels like Sig Sauer did put some effort into this release. The gun is not licensed but actually produced by them. The unit itself is made in Japan which brings to mind precision manufacturing rather than cut-rate Chinese production. But my feeling, having put about 500 rounds through the gun now, is that it is mediocre.

First of all I'll say: If you are buying the gun for the most realistic reproduction, you should instead look for the X-Five P226 that is semi field-strippable and actually has an ejection port and a realistic magazine. If you are looking for an accurate, fun plinking gun that is still a reproduction I would suggest any small Umarex gun over this.

The gun eats a lot of gas. I would say three magazine is all it can really do at full power. Most of that gas is used to blowback the heavy slide so actual projectile velocity is kind of low and drops of quickly through the fourth magazine. Loading the rotary magazines is annoying. The spring magazine of most other CO2 BB guns can be loaded ten times faster and have less issues indexing rounds. Separating the CO2 from the magazine is ostensibly to save time swapping magazines in and out, but when the mags take so much longer to load I'm not sure what the benifit is. The gun shoots low, which is worse than shooting high because you can't see the target if you have to compensate high and move the gun on top of it. It loooks like it is picky with ammo so I am going to have to do a bit of trial and error finding rounds that shoot straight or high.

OK so why does this version of the P226 exist then? Well I'll tell you, it has the exact weight and weight distribution of the real gun. It does not have an ejection port but it has a full weight slide, it even has a 'loose barrel' that 'tightens up' as a shot is fired like the real gun. It has a rifled barrel that keep pellets from straying right or left. The whole gun feels serious and deliberate. It exists to train yourself for the real gun. It does not really feel like a 'fun toy'...for example an umarex replica of a small caliber pistol (like a Beretta M 84) works so well because the gun it replicates is already small and ideal for gas power. The slides is light weight and the real life caliber is closer to the .177 pellet. The P226 on other hand is full size, almost too big to accurately be powered by a single CO2 powerlet. And is just not as fast to cycle rounds through or reload.

But man it feels like the real gun. If you want this gun just to get used to pulling out a P226 and lining up a shot and adjusting for recoil safely in your home, this is it. That's why even despite its flaws I like this gun. If you are not going to get a real P226 I would say get a different version or a different gun.

Over all the gun operates without any issues and feels like the the real Sig 226. I am totally enjoying target shooting again with this gun.
ProsThe weight and balance of the gun is great it feels good in your hand. Reloading with the rotary style clip is fast and easy.
ConsHad some misfires in the very beginning that I attribute to the clips. Now that I have fired about 300 rounds through the pistol it has become less of an issue. So it seems that there was a breakin period for the clips.

I have had two issues with mine! The first Sig fixed it. It's still under warranty. Magazines fall out when I fire the pistol. I've called for a magazine release and spring and I can't get one or a call back. This is why my review is not good! Air valve was replaced by the pistol smith. Not happy at all with the P226.

If you need to provide a gun for your wife for personal protection please buy her a real gun. She should not use a pellet gun; in a real gun fight she would not be the winner. Have her practice with it. That would give her an edge because most bad guys do not spend time at a gun range.

Sig P226 Pellet Pistol
April 24, 2017
Very first thing, I buy this gun for a covert kit from CAA Roni which is for airsoft, but this kit after light mod, it fit so good and can also house the original pistol.
The P226 Over all is good, but the one I got can not hold gas over-night, it means you load the CO2 you have to shoot and finish the gas.
The Mag can house most of the .177 pellet. but, after a while some pellet will slide out.
ProsPlease refers to what is posted.
Consleaking gas, loose mag.

Great Gun, Once You Break It In
April 12, 2017
I first got this gun nearly a year ago when it came out. At first it wasn't so accurate at all. After shooting it over and over again it got much more accurate. You just have to break the gun in. It took me roughly 5 cylinders to break in, the equivalent of about 300 shots. Now I'm able to hit target 100 ft where before it seemed impossible.

Headline is an attention grabber with "SIG Sauer"
March 26, 2017
This co2 operated pellet pistol is one of nicest shooting ones I have among many. The feel and operation mimics the real one unbelievably well. The two headed 8 shot
wheel snap in clip is easy to reload and shoot again quickly. The sites are accurate for this gun and really like the quick co2 cartridge pop open port to change them out.
ProsWeight and feel of the pistol is very good. Good sites, easy reloadable clip and quick change co2 port make it fun to shoot. Has more power per shot that my other pellet pistols. Also like the slide recoil action.
ConsOnly gripe is do not get a lot of shots out each co2 cartridge compared to other co2 powered pistols but the pros definitely out weigh the cons.
By Jesse M.
Scary in the hood.
March 16, 2017
Bought this for my wife for personal protection. She walks home at night from work and I have our two kids at home, our town isn't the best as far as crime. I got this for her to carry home to ward off any would be attackers. One evening she had to pull it, she never had to fire.... She flicked the safety, pulled the slide and the guy took off. Probably a good thing too as the mags are very lucky about the pellets and we didn't know this until later. However, if you have patience, and a small roundish file, you can remove the grooves in each individual chamber. Will fire most any pellet now. Hollow points and all. Also did some other mods that I saw on YouTube for the slide rattle and the barrel wiggle. Not too hard to do, and it is almost a naildriver now at 10-15 yards. It would be nice if it were this good right out of the pack.
ProsSo very realistic. Weight, appearance, and all.
ConsTook some work to get it accurate and to get it to fire most pellets. Also could use a sight upgrade, but seeing as how they are made into the slide, it's impossible. Alas....
By Philip
Fun but lacks power
March 6, 2017
Gun is really fun to play with. Glad I bought extra mags as you will shoot through the 8+8 rounds in the first mag before you realize it. However as it is C02 powered, if you pull the trigger too fast the power will drop even more (which is pretty low to begin with) and you might get a jam or pellets just not firing.

Glad I bought the thing though - it is thankfully more accurate than my MPX that shoots low to the left well beyond any sight adjustment (but that one looks and feels even more awesome, so I can't be too mad at it). Will be buying more Sig airguns... maybe something in brown/tan next.

feels like the real thing
December 28, 2016
I have owned a couple of 9mm 226, this gun feels very close to the real thing. I think the loading of the Co2 is brilliant, love it.
After thousands of rounds I have had no problems with jamming. The Iron sights are dead on accuracy is good with them.
Cons; I think the slide is too heavy, and the rails it rides on could be much better. With a laser mounted on the frame the gun doesn't shoot accurately, as the barrel and slide flop around quite a bit. More than it should. I could hit consistently with my 9mm Sig at 50Yards. There is no easy way to disassemble the the gun to see what could be improve.
Still like the gun and shoot every day.
ProsGood action, doesn't jam, Iron sights are dead on. Co2 mechanism is brilliant. Hits hard .
ConsBarrel flops aroundin the barrel and the barrel is sloppy on the frame. Which makes a frame mounted laser sight not very accurate.

One Solid Weapon
December 26, 2016
The weight, heft and feel of this weapon make it extremely authentic. This is - literally - no lightweight. But the weight makes it feel right with a two-handed grip and sighting in to target. The safety is in a perfect location and the working slide in a sense, at least, charges the weapon. The 16 round magazine is great and loads up like I'm loading an M-9. I bought two extra magazines for a total of three.
ProsHighly authentic and delivers rounds with some punch.
ConsHad some issues getting CO2 cartridges to properly seat, but that issue went away as the weapon was broken in.
By Rob L.

Authentic feel is an understatement
December 12, 2016
Not only does the metal frame make the weight almost identical to this exact pistol when it's chambered in. 357 sig., but it's accuracy out of the box and ability to travel up to 75 yards without any pallet drop is absolutely unparalleled in any other pellet gun I've ever shot. For $100 this is By far the most bang for your buck in the pellet gun market. Not only to plink around in the backyard, but to maintain proficiency with a particular SideArm if you own a Sig P226 or anything similar.

I like my Sig 226 9mm better.
December 10, 2016
I have owned 2 Sig 9mm, not any more but that is another story. I loved those Sigs.
This gun took some getting use to. with the first half of the trigger pull advancing the next round into position. I got the brown one and it was about as accurate as throwing rocks, with a good laser sight. I figured out that the barrel was loose and sent it back. When the second 226 replica arrived the accuracy isn't much better with a laser. Why?? The laser is mounted on the frame and not on the barrel or the slide. Accuracy is better with the iron sights, but still shoots a 2" group at 20' with one flyer usually. My GAMO P-25 is more accurate, even with the laser.
You can't take it apart to clean it. If it jams you will destroy the mag to get it out. It kicks worse than my 9mm.
Good replica, feels good, love the design of the co2 mech.
ProsLooks good , Feels good, good power. 80 shots per co2 cartridge . Fairly accurate with the iron sights.
ConsSlide and barrel are only loosely related to the frame and they are sloppy. Have tried 2 of these Same slop, so frame mounted laser sight is a waste of money. My old Crossman 150 is better.

Sig Sauer P226 FDE CO2 Full Metal Blowback
September 7, 2016
Sig Sauer hit a home run with this almost exact replica of their world famous P226, without close inspection the average person would be hard pressed telling it apart from its powder burning counterpart. Physical size, heft and weight are all spot on. Only in some areas of functionally are there noted differences, the cast molded ejection port and slide release in the all metal upper being the most obvious. I've shot over 500 pellets through mine without a single problem, I use Crosman Premier Hollow Points always, they never jam, hit hard, easy to find and don't cost much. This gun reeks of quality, its apparent shot after shot, the blowback is very strong and CO2 usage is good all things considered, I constantly shot 3.5 mags before having to change CO2. Super easy to load, cam-operated CO2 piercing system, best CO2 loading system I've seen on an action pistol. 16 shot magazine is nice with an 8rd rotary mag on each end, easy to load and flip when firing. High fps 400-425 using lead pellets and very accurate, some people complain it won't hold a tight group, I have zero problems with that, my P226 is dead on at 15-25 feet. Trigger pull is two stage, first pull rotates the rotary mag into position, second pull drops the hammer when cocked single action, which breaks clean, is predicable, slightly heavier pull in double action mode but still very manageable. This gun is full metal slide and frame; weighs 2.35 lbs, rifled barrel so don’t shoot BBs out of it. If you’re into replica action pistols or want a realistic shooting experience in order to maintain your firearm skills I highly recommend the Sig Sauer P226 CO2 Pellet Pistol.
ProsAccurate Replica of P226 Full Metal, Slide and Frame Strong Blowback Good CO2 Usage Excellent CO2 Piecing System (No Tools Needed) Very Accurate, Holds Tight Groups Very Reliable, No Jams or Pellet Feeding Issues 16rd Magazine Cool FDE Finish Realistic Shooting Experience
ConsI believe a functioning slide release and cut out ejection port would add value to this otherwise great gun.

I have now had this Pistol for a couple of months, it shoots nice and straight but the FPS is really lacking with the claimed 500+ fps claimed I felt at 25' it should pierce a pressurized paint can but barely a dent I was disappointed, I'm wondering if the blow back feature is killing the fps Oh well live and learn. Overall I do like all of the features blow back I could really care less but the construction is nice and like I said before it shoots really straight so if you are into plinking only paper targets and the little spin-ey kind in a pellet trap it should work well for you but me I want to kill paint cans and plastic water bottles (it excites the kids when stuff blows up)
ProsShoots really straight. Well made
ConsFPS is severely lacking back to the chronograph for this one!!

The build quality of the gun is about 95% great. Let's first start with all the good. Full metal, very realistic, good power, and accurate. A lot of people have been saying sights are off, I don't think so. After reading the reviews, before buying, I thought I was having the same issue after receiving, shoots low. After a couple videos on how to improve accuracy, trigger control, and aim, this gun shoots pretty accurately. This is my first air pistol; it was hard finding info on pellet pistols, most of everything I found was relating to rifles, so I hope this review helps.

I love this gun. Of the few different pellets I've shot out of the p226, I like shooting crosman premiere hollow points 7.9 gr. I like these the best because they, although are slower than lighter pellets, seem to give the most solid feeling shot, feels like a .22. That's just my preference. I shoot cans, shaken, not stirred, and plastic bottles of water, at about 10 - 25 feet away typically. I started shooting with the rws basic wad cutters 7.0gr, which are deadly accurate. I've gone through the same hole on paper targets a few times resting on a table. They'll only make holes in cans full of water after the first few shots. The hollow points knocks cans full of water down, and both will bounce off plastic bottles, at medium range, except for the first couple shots, so be careful with that. I've tried the crosman destroyers 7.4gr, and the sample pack of hyper max 5.2gr that airgun depot provided. I had problems with the rws and destroyers falling out of the magazines, but has only happen a few times, not while shooting but while changing/rotating mags. I personally don't like the destroyers. The pointed hyperMax were great for puncturing holes in plastic bottles, and were very accurate at close range. I highly recommend buying extra mags, at least two packs of two, 5 mags total, which is usually good for one co2 cartridge. The shots toward the end of the 5th mag is when you really start to notably lose power and accuracy, this was mainly using either the premier hollow points or rws wad cutters. I don't have a chrono, but I'll guess that, in the desert heat of 80+ degrees F I'm getting mid to high 300fps with the 7.9 premier with great impact power, and high 300 to low 400 with 7.0gr wadcutters and mid to high 400fps with the hyperMax 5.2gr. Like I said earlier, I like the knock down power. I had one defective mag but airgun depot promptly replaced it; they have excellent customer service! I will definitely do business with them again. I've had this gun for about a little under a month now, shooting one day every week for a hour or two with friends and family who like to shoot real guns, and they had fun shooting this. It really is great when you can't make it to the range, or out in the desert, to shoot the real thing. As of now I've gone through 15 co2 cartridges, with around 800 pellets. The co2 loading mechanism is great, I've managed to misload one cartridge, causing it to unload completely. It wasn't seated properly when I closed handle. The way the p226 loads co2 is why I chose it over the p250. Sig needs to do this with every air pistol they make from now on. I've only been using the asg lubricating co2 cartridges, which recommends using every 10 regular cartridges. I've used two of those so far, very first cartridge in, 10 regular co2, then another asg. The asg did leave a different imprint on the ring around the needle, which I was worried about at first, but no leaks as of now, while using crosman co2 cartridges. If I were to do it all over I would just use pellegunoil.
Now the things I didn't like and things I would like to see changed. First, I got this mainly for back yard fun, but also to train with when I can't shoot the real sig. The slide does provide realistic recoil, but it rattles. I noticed it drawing the gun, and going from retention to aim. The slide moves back slightly as the gun moves out to aim, ending with an annoying clink. I don't know if this is common for bbg's, but if sig is marketing these air guns to also train with, I feel that you should be able to do a proper draw, without the slide clumsily rattling around or moving back and forth while going to aim. Also, when bringing the gun back in to retention, the slide moves back and forth as well, making it feel clunky. I don't like having to release the trigger fully in order to have the chamber cycle. In SA, there's a good feel when trigger resets, but then you have to bring it out further for the magazine to cycle to the next chamber. I fired a lot of blanks before realizing this. You do adapt to it, but I feel they have it backwards. After pulling the trigger, it should cycle as soon as you let off, then reset. I know you do lose a lot of power firing rapidly, but sometimes you don't care about accuracy and just want to unload a whole clip quickly, at least the 8 rounds half the clip holds. Then there's no slide lock feature, especially when the magazine is empty. I'd think I'm missing the target when it's empty, and it skips a step when reloading, it messes up muscle memory. Back to the magazine, they are plastic, at least have the revolving part metal. For fear of it breaking, I carefully pop the empty mag out, carefully lay it down, pop in a new one carefully, then continue on. I can't do a proper reload. It'd be great if they make a version that only holds 10 rounds, with a metal bottom plate for added realism and to make it easier to determine correct orientation. That would be similar to firing the p227 .45acp. Again, I'm looking at the training/realistic side of things. Airsoft has a lot of these features, but I don't want to shoot plastic Bb's. Pellets are more accurate and feel better shooting. I don't like that I can't change the sights; I'd like to put on night sights. I'll be painting them for now. Speaking of paint, I don't know how I feel about the quality of the fde paint. I mean a quality gun should be rugged, so I'm OK with it acquiring a weathered look, but the paint has slightly worn off from just setting it down. I also don't like the threaded barrel. I've almost lost the threaded end, which loosens up while shooting; it's nothing some blue loctite can't fix. The gun is kinda loud, which I like, but the neighbors don't. I don't think it's that loud, they would only hear it if they're out in their yard. I hope the suppressor is functional when they release it. Otherwise, I'd like to see a version without the threaded barrel. I'd also like to see sig do a p320 in all sizes, with a sturdy, locking slide, and definitely the same co2 loading mechanism, and metal magazines, or at least the revolving chambers metal. Overall, the build quality of this gun is great, and extremely fun to shoot. It being full metal, having gbb and the co2 loading method were the selling points for me.
ProsGreat cheap alternative for Shooting Great power Realistic feel while holding Fast Co2 loading mechanism Great customer service from airgun depot Fast delivery time
ConsLoose slide No slide lock Fde paint wears off quickly Plastic magazines Threaded barrel Can't field strip Fixed sights

The first thing I did was drop the gun on concrete trying to open the stupid plastic packaging it comes in. The gun landed on the barrel but no visible damage. I loaded it and put a drop of oil on the co2 cartridge and clamped it down. I like the way the co2 loads in the grip, you just clamp it shut, no screwing it in. The pistol works flawlessly and is accurate. It groups well for sure. The sights are off a little but that may be because I dropped it before I got to shoot it. I hate the new hard plastic packaging! The blowback is fun. I got over 60 good shots from a cartridge. Very nice gun.
ProsPower, accuracy, looks. It's a fun gun.
ConsA little loud, but not too loud. The plastic packaging sucks.

It's accurate and hits pretty hard. It will tear through cans and is quieter than my S&W .45 co2. No misfires and I like the co2 loading style. I got the dark earth and it looks great. I even got my wife to shoot it! I want to add a laser sight, as the fixed sights are off a little. The blowback is cool, but it goes through co2 after about 50-60 rounds. I shoot pellets and can go through a bunch. Quiet and fun, backyard friendly.
ProsLooks, power, fun!
ConsEats up co2, and pellets, but so what! That's what it's for.

Fired hundreds of rounds anywhere from 25 feet to 10 feet. Every group looks like a shotgun pattern. I tried seven different pellets, including Crosman Premier Ultra and I broke down and bought some expensive Sig pellets. All had the same effect. Then, I ran a couple patches through it with some Hoppe's No. 9 Synthetic Bore Cleaner. They came out black. Ran new patches until they came out clean. Went back out and fired three more mags full from about 15 feet. My group then had constant elevation, but, the shots were scattered left to right about four inches. Now, I don't claim to be the best shot in the world, but, with my Crosman 1377, I can consistently shoot a 3/4" group at 40 feet. I can shoot a 1-1/2" group with my Sig P220, .45, all day at 50 feet. So, my experience with this pellet pistol is that it is not accurate, at all. It isn't even good for practicing trigger squeeze because you don't get good feedback as to where your POA is when the pistol fires. I was going to keep it, if it would shoot good groups. I could always use Kentucky windage to put the rounds on target. That ain't gonna happen. My recommendation is, try something else. I know that some people are happy with their pistol, but, the odds are too great that you will get a dud. I am returning mine and am going to research something else to take its place. Oh yeah, the first stage of trigger pull advances the magazine. If you ever start squeezing the trigger, don't let off until it fires or you will skip a round.
ProsWeight and looks of a firearm. Trigger pull isn't too bad.
ConsNot accurate, at all. Only fires about 48 rounds at decent power.

Feel Real but...

I got this air pistol about 2 months ago. I like the feel, but the velocity is not much as I expected. It is easy to load CO2. It is my first time in air pistol so the power or velocity is not satisfied to me.
ProsReal feels
ConsVelocity is not very fast.

This is my second pellet gun...I waited almost a year to purchase and was not disappointed ! After looking at the pictures for so long,I couldn't help but wonder if the barrel shroud was removable? To my surprise it unscrews exposing a threaded barrel which we'll accept a suppressor! Interesting that the mfg.does not mention this? I am trying to find out what the thread count is so I purchase a fake suppressor for which there are many on the mkt.
ProsGreat fire arm replica installation of co2 should be the defining way for all to be loaded
ConsSeems to rattle more than it should(slide)

Good and Bad

The P226 is heavy and feels like a full size firearm should. The CO2 loading system is remarkable and superior to others in this category. Now for the let downs. The breech has no access for clearing .177 cleaning wads, if you want to clean the barrel. The trigger is TERRIBLE. it has a two stage trigger and when cocked is definitely not smooth especially if your going to use this pistol to train novice shooters...

Feels Real
January 29, 2016
I received my P226 a few days ago. I was surprised how realistic it feels (I own a Sig Sauer P226 MK25 9mm) and looks. The first time I shot it I was surprised as well. I doesn't kick like my 9mm but everything else feels and sounds good. It comes with only one magazine so it might be best to order an extra set, The de-cocking lever works a little hard but seems to be loosening up. So far it doesn't return to the "ready" position, as with my 9mm this is a nice feature to have. As noted in another review, the slide does not stay open after the last pellet is shot so one must keep count on the number of pellets expended. It could be dangerous if a pellet remained in the magazine and the shooter is not aware of it. The trigger, slide and hammer operate just like my 9mm although slide doesn't offer the same resistance. The gun cannot be field stripped but that doesn't seem to be a negative. I liked the ease of loading the CO2 cartridge. It is a really good target/plinking gun replica with plenty of power. I really like it
ProsThe feel, appearance and operation.
ConsMust keep track of pellets shot so as to know when the gun is empty

Fast Accurate

Shoots Crossman Destroyers into a half dollar size group at 15 feet, chronograph at 7 feet is 370 fps with Crossman destroyers on the 3 round of magazines so it was about the 30th shot, each mag holds 8 on either side so at 3 magazines I am already at 48 shots and could definitely dump a cotton tail at a headshot of 20 feet or so. This thing punches through 1 inch of a Uline Catalog at 15 feet or so on the 2nd round of magazines with destroyer pellets. I got a houge grip that slides over the CO2 location on the grip which is not really a big pain as it really helps steady my shots. I am going to put a NIC light laser on it as the sights are not adjustable. For the money this thing is a good buy and is heavy enough to outright pummel an intruder like a 5 pound sledge. Really like it and I can hit 3inch spin targets at 20 yards with Crossman pointed pellets. Gets about 50 good shots off one co2
ProsFeels like the real thing as it kicks with a good 22 mag like recoil and seems very accurate to me with off the shelf pellets
Cons Be Careful this thing is powerful.

Solid piece of equipment
January 2, 2016
This CO2 pistol looks and feels like the real deal. It's very solid and sturdy with the weight and feel of an actual P226. The sliding rail blow back creates the illusion of having recoil like a real firearm as well. It's accurate and packs a punch too.
ProsSolid, sturdy, and powerful
ConsSucks CO2 powerlets inside out but as fun as it is to shoot, who cares.

Awesome gun
December 9, 2015
I really like this gun a lot. It's all metal, feels really good if you like heavy like the real steel. I was a little disappointed it didn't feild skip like the X five, but the kick from the blowback makes up for. but the kick from the blowback makes up for it. It also has a threaded muzzle .overall awesome gun. Overall an awesome gun.
ProsThe realism of the feel from the blowback and look of the original Sig. Co2 loading in a breeze
ConsDoesn't doesn't feel strip field strip

The pistol it self is fine . As for accuracy not sure if it's me ,the pellets or pistol . still working on it .it's a good practice pistol to work on and have fun with.
Proslike the way you load the co2 drop it in and close the lever.
Consthe packaging not a fan of hard plastic. pain to open. also not a con but it should have came with 2 magazines the one it came with seems kind of cheep . don't know how long it will last .

Sig p226 pellet gun review.
October 19, 2015
Bang bang shoot umm up. Fun little gun. Amazing feel to it. Almost the real deal. Shoots pretty good at close range. Pellet picky flat or round only.
ProsThe weight and feel and look of gun is almost real. Trigger pull is good but a little creepy. Fit and finish 8 out of a 10. Blow back action works very well. Loads pellets and cycles ok. You might want to stock up on C02 cylinders cause this gun burns right through them. 64 shots and your done. Excellent Co2 loading and unloading system. You can't go wrong buying this one for under $100.00.
ConsPackaging is a plastic clam shell. [ should have been in a box.} Metal adjustable sights not plastic. Shoots a little left and down. [could be the pellets?] Metal rotary clip instead of plastic. The posted 510 fps isn't real. More like 380 fps. I was using lead hollow.

Was it worth the wait?
October 17, 2015
Overall, the answer to that question is......yes, even though I believe having to endure the 7 weeks plus of delivery delays provided by Sig Sauer should have been handled with better public relations. The P226 is not perfect but, for the price, has little competion for those of us looking for a suitable, practice substitute for the actual firearm.
ProsFeels very close to the actual firearm. Solidly constructed and has, IMHO, the best and most inovative co2 cartridge loading system currently available. Sig Sauer P226 accessories fit as they do with the actual firearm.
ConsTerrible, unadjustible sights which are not close to being on target at 10 meters. Problem solved by installing a Sig Sauer, low profile, red laser sight. See the attached photo. Also, the 510 fps pellet velocity is an unnecessary exaggeration. Did Sig Sauer use a specially blue-printed example with a special created pellet to achieve their velocity claim? I think that 400-450 fps is more realistic with a light alloy, round nose pellet.

Works Well
October 16, 2015
I purchased this when it was first introduced based on nothing but ad copy. Looked good. I have the flat dark earth model. It's nice but if I were to do it again I'd probably go with the black.

It seems to be heavy duty, metal, feels great in the hand. The co2 loading is different from anything else I have and is quite easy and quick to load.

I've ordered additional magazines but they will not be available until at least late October. Airgun Depot is always great to deal with !
ProsHeavy solid feel in hand comfortable easy to load Co2
Consadditional mags unavailable at time of purchase.
Lincoln, NE
Not so great
October 14, 2015
Gun gets nowhere near Sig's advertised fps. It gets more like 350fps. I'm only getting about 30 shots with good blowback. The magazines are horrible as pellets fall out of bottom rotary magazine just from firing gun.
ProsIf it's a pro, the only thing would be all metal construction
ConsI feel I wasted $100.00 on this gun.
