SIG P226 X-Five: Colors of the Rainbow

The SIG P226 X-Five pistol is a highly tuned handgun featuring superb accuracy, a five inch barrel and a single-action trigger.  Here in the United States, SIG SAUER offers the X-Five in four different models.  Each is a highly-tuned shooter.  However, you have to go to Germany to get the really distinctive P226 X-Five models.

The European shooter can get the X-Five and X-Six (6″ versions of the same gun) in a variety of colors and styles including rich blues, bright reds and deep greens.  Gold plated triggers and fine wood grips can all be had, along with custom engraving.  Here are a few of the “standard” P226 X-Five and X-Six models available from SIG…

SIG SAUER in Germany offers a variety of customizations, and the above photos are just a few examples.  You can get your P226 X-Five in a variety of colors, have different metal bits gold plated and have your name engraved on the slide.

For me, the gold plating is over the top, but I do like some of the custom color and finish combinations.  The Blue Moon, for example, would look very nice on my hip in a Mitch Rosen holster at the next BBQ.

Leupold Mark AR MOD 1 Rifle Scope

leupold mk ar rifle scopeWithout a doubt, Leupold is the premier name in rifle scopes.  If you want the best glass for your AR-style rifle, this is the scope you must have.  This tactical scope is extremely durable and the optics are amazing.  The bonus is the incredible pricing and that it is made in the USA.

  1. Who gave Taurus the keys to the Sig factory?

  2. “…you have to go to Germany to get the really distinctive P226 X-Five models.”

    Seriously? Germans are allowed to own handguns?

    • GermanDude says:

      Believe it or not, but one is allowed to own guns in Germany. Contrary to popular belief, there are quite a few guns in private hands.
      All one has to do is pick up shooting as a hobby, i.e. join a shooting club, wait a period of time and then the shopping may begin. As opposed to the US, all guns over here registered to their owners. Semi-autos need to be approved prior to purchase.

  3. Not my style but I love that people are buying guns in other colors now.

    These remind me, for some reason, of the “Swords” in Leo deCaprio’s Romeo and Juliet.
