    I'm thinking of purchasing this model in the near future but can't find one in my area to handle.
    Anyone here own one, if so, are they are worth the extra cash ($1395 in my area)?

    Thanks,

    The price I was given is for the Tactical model only.

    Check out Sigforum.com classifieds. You might be able to find a new or used one in excellent condition for less money.

    I have tried most of the standard Sigs including S&W, Glocks, CZ's, Berettas, etc. The Sig X-Five Tactical is the nicest and most accurate handgun I have ever owned. It is manufactured and assembled in Germany. Buy the X-Five; it is definitely worth the extra money. It will shoot circles around most pistols on the market.

    Here's a pic of the 2nd X-five Tactical I recenty purchased:

    If you decide to purchase a holster, get the Blade-Tech Stingray. As far as I know, it is the only holster currently on the market that is specifically designed for the X-Five Tactical.

    Thanks for the nice pic, that's the one I'm hoping to get soon. My local FFL gave me a price around 1395.00, do you think that is a fair price?

    Yes. $1,395 is a great price for a new one. Bud's Gun Shop is known for their low prices, but terrible customer support has it currently listed for $1,381 + shipping and it is out of stock.

    Buy it, you will not be sorry. The finish is nicer, the action is smoother and the trigger pull will bring a smile to your face everytime. You can quote me on that...

    Here's a link to a video shooting the X-Five Tactical:

    Icing on the Cake: You get an actual target result verifying your handgun's accuracy verified by a German marksman. Distance - 25 meters. This target result verifying the accuracy of the actual handgun helps the X-Five hold its resale value. Don't lose it!

    This gun definitely lacks holster and accessories options

    Its not much of a carry gun, in my opinion.

    The L1, with its adjustable trigger down to 2 pounds, adjustable sights, magwell, Nill grips, and capable of delivering under 2” groups at 50 yards is a competition race gun, in my opinion.

    It's not set up as a duty pistol.

    Nice gun!

    I'm looking into getting one, also. One question though, is the upper portion of the grip slimmer than on the standard 226? The standard models have a lump for the decocker, but in your pics, it looks nearly flat there. Is it noticeably slimmer?

    I believe they are SAO = no decocker

    Yep, SAO with ambi-safety. That's why I'm wondering if it feels noticeably slimmer at the top of the grip.
