    I won a 226 as a prize and tbh when I first shot it I thought I'd be moving it on pretty fast
    after a while it grew on my even though as already mentioned it no where near it's sights aim -I made a silencer and if fitting one you'll need to check the thread as mine is 12x1 not 1/2"x20 although I'm told some are 1/2"
    the silencer made no difference to aim point and whilst reduceing noise a lot comes from the blowback action
    one thing that made a difference was a laser a mate sent me for some parts I made for him once fitted and zero'd it changed my opinion of it so for the time being i'll keep it
    if you can find one and like the sig shape look for a rws 225 I have one and I'd take that over a p226 any day

    I have a couple of 225s, but have always fancied the later "Hammerli" S26 variant, with a grip more like the real 226. The 225's being a little thin and poorly shaped by comparison.

    Is it that the 225 is meant to represent a p220 rather than p226 ??

    I have had a Walther CP88 for a while and am very impressed with Umarex. I have also just bought a Sig Sauer P226 as my second string.
    The Walther is a beautiful, high quality pistol. It could have been manufactured in a sewing machine factory. The Sig, on the other hand, though inovatively designed, is agricultural in quality of manufacture, feels cheap and rattles annoyingly.
    When I pull the trigger of a pistol eight times I expect eight pieces of lead to go down range fairly reliably. I have therefore decided to return my Sig 226. It looks quite good but it is of poor quality. More importantly it has proved very unreliable. It fires a couple of shots then bangs and recoils but doesn’t fire a pellet. I then have to struggle to get the jammed magazine out, which involves pushing a cleaning rod down the barrel. It may be just the magazines, as the pellets just fall out of them. However, I have tried different makes of pellet, three magazines and a fresh co2 cylinder without achieving satisfactory results. So back it goes, to be replaced by the Umarex Walther CP99 I should have bought in the first place.
