Sig Sauer Reboots the P226 X-Five

Long just seen in obscure action flicks like Travolta’s 2010 opus “From Paris with Love” and on the competition pistol circuit– particularly in the hands of Team Sig’s Max Michel back in the day– the P226 X-Five was super tough to get.

After all, the longslide SAO pistol, complete with a 5-inch barrel and bespoke grips, hailed from Germany and was only in limited production both in terms of total hand-crafted made and years they were produced.
