    Sig P226 X5 vs. CZ SP01 Shadow Target

    The title says it all. I'm looking to purchase one of these two guns as a fun, range piece.

    I own a CZ 75 D PCR and absolutely love it! The Sig came highly recommended and shoots like a champ.

    As far as I can tell, these two guns are very similar -- the CZ is $1000 less and 1/4" thinner.

    What do you guys think? Please leave your comments.

    Go with the CZ. You can buy a lot of ammo for $1000.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Besides the money issue there is a lot o be said for having the same platform for run and gun games as your defensive pistol.

    I have the SP 01 tactical myself.

    CZ all day long. Unless you really like spending lots of money.
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
    Train hard, live easy.

    I think you just answered your own question. CZ is one of the most underrated firearms in this Country.
    If you can read this thank a teacher. If it is written in English thank a Marine.

    Sig X5 and the CZ SP-01 target Similarity ?

    I have both guns, to say they are similar is like saying a giraffe is the same as a rhinoceros because they each have 4 legs.
    They are both great in different ways.
    Top points for comfort of grip, sight picture, and natural hold to the CZ.
    The trigger is smooth for a CZ! and is reasonable, and so is the accuracy.
    The Sig (assuming you mean the level one model, there are a number of very different variants)
    Is far more accurate, and the trigger pull is so smooth, you practically have to think where you want the bullet to go and it is there.
    The downside to the Sig is the size of the grips, they are ridiculously large and no one makes a flat substitute, like the CZ custom shop to for the CZ.

    You can tell the difference in pedigree, the CZ is a great modified combat weapon.
    The Sig is refined and honed to a different standard.

    All that being said I find the CZ more comfortable, as I have to keep resting with the Sig because of size of grip and weight.

    The ultimate handgun is somewhere between the 2, and I am still on my quest.
    Good luck with yours
