    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.

    So, it sounds like it has a magazine. What's the capacity?

    CO2 guns in my experience are rather poor performers.

    I have an RWS .177 caliber rifle that touts it's performance at 1000 fps.

    I had an invasion of cat squirrels. Tthis rifle shooting pellets (far, far more accurate than BB's) would completely shoot through and through dropping them DRT.

    This is a German made RWS, one crank single shot with a 4 power scope, which I've now changed over to a red dot sight.

    It's a beautiful, wood stock thing of beauty and is very, very accurate.

    Some air rifles are used to take big game, but such is not well known even to shooters.

    Air rifles can be formidable.

    Pretty sure he got this pistol for a completely different purpose and reasons completely unrelated to big game hunting.

    It is just like the real deal.

    Double action first shot, single action follow up shots.

    Safety/Decocker works just like the original dropping the hammer to Double Action position.

    Haven't chrono'd it. I don't have one of those fancy contraptions.

    Reversible magazine, 8 on each end.
