    A friend overseas has the opportunity to purchase either a Sig X6 or a Les Baer Ultimate 5".

    Any one care to opine as to which you would buy if the price is the same?

    (No, I don't know what he'll be using it for, assume mostly target shooting)
     
  2. Come on now, this is the 1911 forum, you know I'm gonna answer with Les Baer! :supergrin:


    You said the other choice was the X6. I am unfamiliar with this model. Did you mean the X-Five model? If so, which one?

    Great question, I don't know, but I asked for clarification.

    And, no, there is an X-6, different than the X-5.

    The X-6 is like the X-5 but based on the 220 in 45ACP.

    They would both be excellent target guns but I would lean toward the 1911 platform.

    I've never shot an X6 so I wouldn't be much help. All my pistols get carried at some point so I'm thinking the Baer would be a little more practical for me. Those German Sigs certainly are sweet though.

    I have an X-Five and its one of my favorite pistols.

    The X-Six is one on my list for sure.

    That said, if I had to choose, I'd have a hard time passing up the Ultimate Master.

    Actually, there are two X-Sixes. One is based on the P226 like the X-Five, but with a longer barrel. The other is a single stack based on the P220.

    Oddly enough, the X-Six pistols are a few hundred less than the top of the line X-Five.

    Do all the X series Sigs have a stainless frame.

    I just learned that it's not the Ultiamte Master, now reported to be "just" a Les Baer Custom (whatever that may mean, I don't know Les Baers) :scared:

    He has a choice between either versions of the X-6 220 and 226 are available.

    You leaning towards the Sig now, bac?

    I'd say unless its the Ultimate Master or SRP with the accuracy package, go with the X-Six.

    The X series are all hand built in Germany and completely separate from that Exeter crap.

    a friend had two different X-5 pistols 'lock up' somewhere in the trigger group....he was not impressed, and, upon hearing of it happening, neither was I...; not for that kind of money.

    Odd

    I've never heard of an issue with an X-Five.

    I find mine to be one of the best quality pistols I own.

    This X-5 is by Grayguns is rather sharp to say the least.
