How's the Sig X5?

I'm wondering about my next "save-up for" gun, and the Sig X5 has caught my eye. It's a good looking pistol with the right proportions (most Sigs look a little too stocky for my tastes). The fact that it is single action is just icing on the cake. Does anyone here have one? How does it shoot and feel in the hand? How accurate is it? How is the trigger? And for the lucky ones who have both, how does its craftsmanship compare to the legendary Sig P210?

I have a SIG X-5 Tactical, which is a SA model. Very comfortable to hold and shoot, very accurate and reliable. The trigger is very nice and recoil is negligible.

I added an X-5 jet funnel, base extensions and Nill grips. They run $1300-$1400.

A good value at the $1000 price point would be a CZ 75 SP-01 Custom Shop pistol.

You may want to conduct a little X-5 research over at the SIG forum. :)

don't compare a SIG P210 to a SigSauer x5!

P210 is a real Swiss made gun from Neuhausen, Switzerland
that worth the money.
But a X5 is a overpriced modified SigSauer P226 with steel frame
and SAO trigger. For the same money you can get a better gun.

Here in Switzerland most Target shooter use P210 for Bulls eye
and Glock or Sphinx (swiss cz75 clone) for IPSC.

Thanks for the input. I handled a X5 today. It was the .40, not the 9mm I wanted, but the owner of the gunshop said that they feel the same in the hand. The X5 seems like a great gun, it had the nicest non-1911 trigger I've experienced, and it had a short reset. It felt pretty good in my hand. I think I've found the next gun on my wish list.

When I looked at the X-5, I found it was not sanctioned for any of the competitive shooting venues I was interested in. But if you just plan on using it at the range, and you've got the $$, it's hard to beat.
