I looked, but couldn't find an air gun topic or thread, so this is where it landed. I am a huge fan of the SIG Classic series pistols. I only have a P226 Extreme, but plan on adding a P229 when the gun budget allows. I am always looking for ways to improve my shooting skills affordably, and looked into air guns. Fortunately SIG makes a pellet CO2 copy of the p226. After months of internal debating and research, I finally bit the bullet. Here are some pictures of the pellet model (on the left) next to my 9mm Extreme. If it weren't for the thread protector on the pellet model, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two. It is all metal and features a slide that blows back when the gun is fired. The weight, feel, function, and look of everything is darn near identical to the 9mm. Haven't had a chance to put rounds through it, but have dry fired it. The trigger leaves a lot to be desired. It is nowhere near as good as the SRT on my Extreme, but that is to be expected. It will take some getting used to, but hopefully some muscle memory will be improved. I'll continue to post updates as I explore its capabilities.
