Default Picked up a new toy

A Sig X5



Picked it up for a great price. I was originally after a different version but it was too hard to pass up. Might have to get the other one later on.

The slide to frame fit as well as barrel lock up is very tight, little to no movement at all. The finish is top notch and the overall operation is silky smooth.
The DA and SA trigger are also very smooth and crisp.
The grip is a perfect fit with the Nill grips and points very naturally.

Overall a very nice pistol

That is a sharp looking pistol. Do you mind if I ask what it set you back? Please let us know how it shoots when you take it out.
