    A Sig X5 :)

    Picked it up for a great price. I was originally after a different version but it was too hard to pass up. Might have to get the other one later on.

    The slide to frame fit as well as barrel lock up is very tight, little to no movement at all. The finish is top notch and the overall operation is silky smooth.
    The DA and SA trigger are also very smooth and crisp.
    The grip is a perfect fit with the Nill grips and points very naturally.

    Overall a very nice pistol :)

    What a beautiful gun..... I'm sure the "great price" that you got on it is still leaps and bounds out of my budget haha....

    Please, do post photos of how it shoots so that I can live vicariously through them ;)

    Very true. "toy" is just a way of not giving away what we are talking about over here.

    Well after a few hundred flawless rounds I'm still very much impressed. Certainly lives up to its reputation of a very accurate handgun :)

    Also managed a few more pics after cleaning :)

    Thanks mate, those grips are not factory standard on this model usually comes with a black plastic set which I have as well. The X5 L1 model comes standard with those or similar grips.

    I much prefer the nill grips myself :)

    I'm getting the Sig P226 stainless elite but yours is even prettier. Man, wish these sigs didn't look so good. I'd have a lot more money. :(
