Sig Sauer P226 Pistol is a Replica
This new Sig Sauer P226 CO2 is a close match of the authentic Sig .177 which shoots lead air gun pellets. It's actually designed by Sig Sauer themselves, so you can be assured both outstanding quality and accuracy in terms of replicating the real Sig Sauer pistol. The original Sig was developed in 1984 for the US Army's XM9 service pistol trials and was only one of two guns to emerge from rigorous testing for the replacement of older models. Today It's legendary status and reliability has lead to its adoption by many members of law enforcement and military units worldwide, including the U.S. Navy SEAL teams. The P226 is also used today by one third of the United States Police Force so it's hugely popular.
The P226 .177 replica has a few special features which make it a superb choice when practicing your shooting skills. For example the air pistol features a metal slide and frame, 16 round magazine and built in Picatinny rail mount for a Tactical laser or Flashlight. The action of the piston is semi automatic blowback which is very realistic, however very solid and reliable. Sig Sauer also made the P226 Pistol with a threaded barrel, enabling you to fit a silencer, adding to the realistic detail of this uncanny replica. In terms of sighting, the Sig P226 comes with a 3 dot sight system, making it very easy to pick out a target and giving the shooter a clear sight picture.
Sig Sauer P226 .177 magazine holds 8 rounds per side for a total of 16 pellets per magazine, which make loading very simple. It's a rotary design which makes changing the magazine very simple and easily ejects for re-loading without any problem. In terms of the CO2 itself, the P226 is one of the easiest on the market to change. There's no fiddling about required, messing about with tools or tightening. Instead just place the CO2 inside the retractable handle and you're good to go.
Accuracy is one of the biggest motivations for a shooter and if you are looking for a pistol that helps you hone your shooting skills, the Sig P226 Lead Pellet Pistol is the ultimate training pistol. And because of it's close resemblance to the actual P226, the CO2 version offers excellent experience of how it ‘feels' to fire the real thing. Weight-wise, there's very little difference between the replica and the real thing! So from a handling point of view, it will ‘feel' pretty much the same.
Cosmetically there is very little to distinguish the real pistol from the CO2 version. And if you place both the Sigs next to each other you will notice that the shape, contours and logos are the same. Even firing feels the same - to a certain extent - however as you can imagine the recoil from firing a real P226 is a bit more powerful.
