Range report Sig Sauer P226 X5 Lightweight

I ended up selling my P226 Stainless Elite for this POS.

So to be serious, My initial thought looking at the LTWT X5 it felt great and was really light (compared to the full stainless X5's). Still not 100% liking the two toned, but it's growing on me. The trigger was as smooth as butter and the reset was crisp and short. I'm not sure if it's shorter than the SRT on the Elite, but it was super short. The low profile sights are great as well. Easily adjustable but Sig has done an amazing job at getting it on target straight out the box.

For the shooting aspect. The gun feels super light (again as compared to my last gun (SSE P226) and the recoil. What recoil?!? If there was any, I sure didn't feel it. It sure felt like I couldn't miss and I'm still very new to shooting.

Shots were from 10 yards away
