Sig Sauer’s Advanced Sport Pellet (ASP) airgun lineup just got a little bit bigger with the unveiling of the new X-Five model.
Based on Sig’s X-Five Competition pistol, the CO2-powered X-Five ASP fires .177 pellets. It features a single action only trigger and ambidextrous safety. In addition, it sports an adjustable rear sight; Picatinny rail for mounting accessories like a laser or tactical flashlight; and a full metal slide and frame with realistic blowback action.
The X-Five ASP also comes with a cam lever CO2 loading port for fast loading of the 12-gram CO2 cartridges. The airgun shoots up to 430 fps, but the velocity vary depending on temperature and altitude.
In the presser, Sig says the weight and feel is essentially the same as the pistol’s centerfire counterpart, making it good for training.
“The new Sig Sauer X-Five air pistol is an outstanding training tool as are all of our Advanced Sport Pellet airguns,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of the Sig Sauer Airgun Division. “Airguns allow for more flexibility as to where you can shoot, such as your back yard, and more and more professionals are buying airguns for this very reason. Airguns are also perfect for teaching beginners firearms safety and the fundamentals of shooting.”
Shipping out with one 20-round Rapid Pellet Magazine, the X-Five ASP is available in silver/black and solid black. The MSRP is $139.99. See the specs below. To learn more, visit sigsauer.com.
