i heard it is a great competion gun.i also heard the ipsc world champion weigan won many championship in fast pace shooting with it.

any imput about it?? does it worth the 2000$ msrp price tag ??

i know my question seems a bit snobish,but i really want something special, something i would be very proud of, but something who is very high level quality made, flawless .

Sig X5
 
I own the Sig Sauer X6 9mm which is the level one model with a 6" barrel. Same as the X5 except the barrel.
I also own the X5 Competition in .40 S&W.

The Level 1 X6 is definitely a better gun, hand fitted, hand made, and the adjustable trigger is worth the extra money alone. It's a single action with a match grade 2 lb. trigger. I use it for IPSC and IDPA in limited class. It's the finest gun and most accurate I've ever shot.

The X5 Competition is almost the same gun except for the trigger and shorter barrel. It wasn't hand fitted by sig but the tolerances are so perfect you'd think it was. I was shooting a Kimber 9mm TLE for IDPA and my scores went up almost 20% after I started using the X5. They went up another 20% after using the X6.

These guns have very tight tolerances but will still shoot reloads and Walmart factory Federal ammo. They are not finicky with ammo at all. I recently shot an IPSC match and went through 300 rnds of reload ammo from a friend without a single jam.

They are very expensive. The X6 was $2500 and X5 $1500 but they're worth every penny. STI competition guns are more expensive and are VERY finicky with ammo. Spend the money and get the X5.

X5
 
I forgot to mention:

If you want the best and have the money, buy the Sig X5 Level 1 in 9mm. You'll pay around $2100 on Gunbroker. Most IPSC and IDPA shooters are going to 9mm because of the ammo cost, accuracy and capacity. The X5 Level 1 comes with 2 19 round mags and the .40 is only 14. Ammo is also half the price because you can buy Walmart Federal boxes of 50 for less than $10. Nobody really shoots match ammo unless they're reloading their own .38 super. The level 1 gun has an adjustable match trigger and fancy wood grips. The best thing about it is that it's tolerances are literally perfect but it'll feed any ammo you can throw at it. I have at least 5000 rounds through my X6 without a single jam.
