    I also have the Sig X-Five Competition on my list of pistols to buy. I have heard mixed reviews about accuracy and I'm a little concerned about some of the stories I've heard in relation to the GSR and the quality of the steel used in their manufacture. I have owned a Sig P226 in the past and could have recommended it without reservation, but lately I am a little concerned about the products that I have tried from Sig. Any feedback?

    With that price tag they command, I'd be leary if you have any doubts. Personally, if I was to look at that level of a target pistol in that price range, I'd be looking at the Sig P210 models. They have a proven track record and pretty much the benchmark that all others are judged by.

    I have seen a number of articles on the 225xFive. Haven't seen one yet. I have seen 210s for years and actually got to shoot one years ago. Amazing 2 stage trigger. I have lusted after one for years. The price seems to keep going up beyond my means as my means increases.

    This is just a hard one to crack the wallet for; it supposedly shoots great, but at twice the cost of their duty guns which could easily be used in a competition...I just don't know.

    You get what you pay for! Besides, if one was realy that serious about thier shooting and the competition the cost would'nt be such a factor. Of course to many that's just way to much for one handgun egardless of quality. For those serious enough and dedicated enough and also recognizing the "Sig"nificgance of the 210, it's a whole different genre. Kinda like those that shoot bullseye with thier $1200+ .22's; to some that's ludicris for a .22. To those in the sport it's well worth it!
