View Full Version : Welcome All to the Dreamscape of Sig Sauer X6 MASTERSHOP SERIES
31-10-2010, 03:14 PM
Its been a while since I made a new thread; however, I had a very hightening experience last Friday afternoon which pleasantly caused me to start this thread. There was an impromtu meet at the Isb Gun Club past Friday with Dr. Zakir, Glockcohlic, and myself. "Moeen bhai, come to the club to test out the new unfired Sig X6"... Wow!!! How can I refuse an offer like that. So I immediatly took off to the range.
The Sig X6 is one of the Sigs Mastershop series of handguns. It is rated as one of the best handguns money can buy. Full adjustable trigger (pre/post), Full adjustable sights, Ambidexterous frame safeties, Mag well housing, 6 inch barrel, very nicely done checkered grips, and the list goes on and on. Here are some pics courtesy of Glockcholic:
Upon holding it in my hand, the gun fit very well in the palm - its a very ergonomic grip with NO slip thanks to the extra fine checkering. I held it up to the target, very nice - the front/rear sight combo provides a very clear picture of the terminal target.
And then the fun began - there was only ONE draw back to this quick meet.... NOT ENOUGH AMMO!!!!
I have posted the video links below although its much more fun in person... Enjoy:
I am expecting Glockcohlic bahi to post the detailed images in this thread soon.
Many Thanks to Dr. Zakir (Bossman) and to Glockcohlic.

Thanks, it was really great to inaugurate the Great Shooting Pleasure of the X-Six with you guys. As you know it was quite a few days that I wanted to take the X-Six to the range. I wanted to test fire it before going back to work.
Its been a while that I bought this gun and didn't got time to shoot out and have a test fire session on ythe range. But last Friday we got change and thanks to Dr. Zakir & Moeen Bhai who also joined the session. We all had a great shooting fun with the X-Six and its performance was out Class and to shoot the X-Six was really a pleasure.
Thanks to Zakir Bhai and Moeen Bhai who joined the session and they also had fun, which we all can see in the videos. :)
I really enjoyed shooting the X-Six, even though I had a right hand injury but this couldn't stop me going to shoot out the X-Six. :)
Here I would like to thank Farhan Bhai of Majeed Sons, Lahore who bought this beautiful gun for me from the Sig Sauer MasterShop. I really appreciate his comitment and the deal he made for this gun. He made it possible that I got this beauty in my collection and the deal was really fair and it was as per what he promised and exactly within the time frame. Thanks Farhan Bhai.

Here is the Target Shoot out from a distance of 25 Meters with my injured right (dominant) hand. :) Rest I enjoyed the Sound of falling Plates. :)
31-10-2010, 06:02 PM
moeen bhai i am waiting for ur CZ 75 TS.
31-10-2010, 06:17 PM
x6 is the ultimate in SIG . it has a six inch barrel and magwel housing and SRT trigger . recoil is a shade more than .22 . i think if one fires about 200 rounds one can get sub 2 inch groups at 25 meters . shooting by javed has been standing with both hands and without rest
31-10-2010, 06:35 PM
Thats great great great gun indeed.. very nice shooting Moeen Bhai.
And heartiest congrats on purchasing such a masterpiece Glockcohlic brother.
31-10-2010, 06:38 PM
@Zaheer - Thank u.
@Silent Killer - Thanks.
@Nabeel - Thanks.
@Glockcohlic - nice but where are the targets I shot at standing they had a much better grouping?
@Achilles - Bhai, next trip. On this trip I took my Ruger MKIII 22/45.
31-10-2010, 06:47 PM
Congrats brother Glockohlic brother for acquiring this masterpiece and Moeen bhai exhibited some exciting shooting with the gun.
Finally words of praise for Mr Farhan of Majied Sons who was able to import this gun and struck a fair deal, keep up this good work brother.

Congratulation for the world class handgun. I saw that gun before u took and even tried to bye it but got stright answer sorry it is booked beside this your other purchease is exellent and it is rare . I am sssh silent as you told me in other thread but for me that is dreamgun. I have booked x6 and elite and your surprise as well for my son. As far dealer is concerd he is considerd so rude and so mody but for his friends he naver think a moment and give unexepected favours out of way. I love to have this gun in my collection and will get soon. In my openion no other pistol can match with X6 in any terms . I am so happy it went to a good collector like you. Believe me if it is not with farhan then it will not with you but with me. But giving offer to farhan after his words sorry booked mean .....Again congratulation for this unmatched classic.You will improve soon

Thanks you very much brother. Really appreciate the kind words from you. Actually I booked the X-Six and the Mark 23 with Farhan and he accuired both on time and as promised. I was lil late to collect them as I was not in Pak.
You are right, X-Six is indeed a dreamgun. Indeed it's going to help me improve my shoting skills. Unfortunatily I am suffring Tennis Elbow problem with my right hand for over a year. Have been on to physiotherapy & Ultrasonic Therapy along with medication but still got pain.
Next on line is the HK Expert / Elite, then I will be taking soe time off to enjoy these items for a whle. :)
Congrats in advance for the up coming items for your son. Really a dreamgun selection. Regards.

@Glockcohlic - nice but where are the targets I shot at standing they had a much better grouping?
Here is the one with me. The Silver Highlighted ones are the 9MM and the ones in Blue are .22LR.

A fantastic gun Mastershop tuned. What else could one want ? Congratulations Glockoholic, you have the best shooting handgun in the world in your collection.
@Moeen Great shooting, btw you were doing equally good with your TS as well. An in depth comparative review between the Mastershop SIG and your tuned CZ TS would be extremely valuable and en lighting. We already know the SIG wins hands down in fit and finish but performance ??
31-10-2010, 09:59 PM
@Abbas - Actually, I was supposed to bring the CZ TS as well; however, I wanted to get the Ruger out of the way first. We will be doing the comparisons on the next trip InshAllah. The comparisons will be the SigX6, CZ TS, And ofcourse the Beretta 92 Combat.
Here are my initial observations so far:
-Parts Fit and finish - 1st Place goes to the SigX6, a very close second is the Beretta 92 Combat, and last is CZTS. Every part in the SigX6 is made to extreme exacting tolerances and is relentlessly checked at factory over and over. The same can be said for the Beretta. In the CZ's case I am sure each pistol is worked and checked upon; however, not with much scrutiny due to precision investment casting.
-Weight - This is a very big issue when competition shooting as one tries to aim with precision the weight tires the hands to the point of shaking. Although I didn't weigh any of these guns I am going by feel. In this category the CZTS is the lightest hence it takes 1st place. Second place goes to the Beretta 92 Combat with the SigX6 taking third place. This issue was also corroborated by a shooter I know who has two Sig X6 and a Beretta 92 Combat.
- Trigger - The main point - the element of surprise. 1st place goes to the CZTS, those that have fired it compare it to smooth as silk and very crisp. The Sig X6 trigger is also very good at a close Second place, this is due to the Sig's new SRT trigger setup. We had a national games participant try out the Sig X6 and he was used to shooting the Sig Xzone pistols. He stated the trigger was very good due to the element of surprise meaning one is not anticipating the recoil. Third place (not in my case) goes to the Beretta 92 Combat, its trigger was the stiffest of all though I corrected mine and it still needs more work to make it equal that of the CZTS but since we are talking stock guns third place goes to the Beretta 92 Combat.
- Recoil - This is a very touchy feely subject - everyone has their own opinions on it and here are mine. 1st place went to Beretta 92 Combat due to the low-slide-weight-mass movement. Second place was quite difficult to judge as both guns have their own advantages relating to recoil. The CZTS has a very low height build short 5" slide and the Sig X6 has the tall high and mighty 6" hence both have low recoil. I will leave this area blank so we can come back to it one day. I may also add that the other gentleman who shoots the Sig XZone did state that the XZone had much less recoil than the SigX6 due to the muzzle weight attachment in the XZone.
- Grip - 1st place goes to the Beretta 92 Combat. There is no comparison with anything. The aggressively checkered front strap and the backstrap of the Beretta is.... quite gripping. Second place goes to the SigX6, it too has very nice fine line checkering especially in the wooden grips. Third place goes to the CZTS as they basically went with investment casting and one can't really risk fine checkering in wax injection castings.
- Accuracy - this area i will comment on strictly based on my experience. I do not have a auto-pistol rest to shoot and test these weapons for accuracy I am only going by what I am able to do with these three. Obviously, the SigX6 and the Beretta 92 Combat have an advantage with their 6" barrels providing better accuracy and the poor little CZTS seems left out.... NOT BY A LONG SHOT!!!
I say this - I was able to shoot for the first time with the SigX6 equally as fast as with my CZTS with accuracy; why, the trigger and weight. 1st place I give to the Beretta 92 Combat in this case because its been the only gun I can shoot them plates faster with! There I said it - once again this is my experience with these guns, others may have had other variations.
- Sights - 1st place goes to the SigX6 with a very very close second to CZTS (I wish CZ would offer a thinner front blade). Third place goes to the Beretta 92 Combat; why, well a target gun shouldn't have three dot sights. Over all, the sights are very good.
In conclusion, my opinion is this - I am for any gun that does for me what I want it to do hit plates and fast and with ease. Whether its the Mercedes of guns like the Sig X6/Beretta 92 Combat or the Carolla of guns like the CZTS. Thats it for now, I will update accordingly as I remember more things regarding comparison.

very nice guys
31-10-2010, 11:09 PM
I like the shape, its look like Sig P210 :)
01-11-2010, 12:37 AM
Excellent write up Moeen. It's amazing in it's self that the TS is giving the X6 a run for it's money. It really a heaven sent for those who have the talent but can't buy the uber expensive X6 or the rare Combat. I think it's value for money guns like the TS that create and bring real shooters up the ranks.
Looking forward to the Accuracy test !
01-11-2010, 11:12 AM
@Abbas - I believe the accuracy testing will best be performed by Skeeter60 as he will be in Isb around late November. Also, there is one gun I have left out due to the fact that its nearing completion and hopefully will be completed by then... The Glock 17L, I am hoping to add that to the mix as well.
01-11-2010, 11:48 AM
lovely piece. good to see that we can have good handguns in pak now.since last few months we got some very good and rare guns here.
Glocko bro Congrats for your gun, and best wishes for majeed sons.
is it 45 or 9mm?
01-11-2010, 11:55 AM
You got my point very well about Mercedes & Corolla. :)
01-11-2010, 11:56 AM
Thanks bro. X-Six is 9mm.
01-11-2010, 11:59 AM
Glockchhlic Bro many many congratulations for adding another beauty in collection. :)
01-11-2010, 12:46 PM
Thanks Faheem bro.
I m onboard the aircraft for my departure. Will be posting more pix once I m in my 2nd home
01-11-2010, 03:48 PM
@Glockcohlic - I did yes and there is no doubt in my mind about it... this is why I used your descriptive comparison. Without a doubt what you said and what I wrote is true... As long as collecting is concerned. :)
Which Ruger are selling to make space for new Gem.
01-11-2010, 05:10 PM
@Vik - I think you mis-understood, I am NOT selling my Ruger, I needed to get the sights aligned in it and it had been out awaiting this for over two weeks. I got it sighted-in properly, today I cleaned it and is now resting, I think this months flavor is going to be my Beretta 87 Cheetah. Its been in hibernation for quite a while now.
Glockchhlic Bro. many congratulations for this beauty...
01-11-2010, 08:08 PM
Glockcohlic brother, thanks for sharing such useful information about one of the best guns in the world. Great gun, great report.
Moin sahib, thanks for a very objective comparison. I am surprised to see that TS, somehow, competes with X6. Purely from price and reputation point of view, I think these two guns are in different leagues; CZ TS being far lower than X6. Your views would surely make CZ TS owners extremely happy. Thanks for the effort, Sir.
01-11-2010, 08:32 PM
Bravo! let us have a match let us put the corrolla against the Mercedes one of these days.
Congrats for two very fine guns you just acquired.
01-11-2010, 10:32 PM
@Gilani - Sir, Over all the SigX6 BEATS the CZ TS; however, the CZ is not far behind. The SigX6 will last the owner a lifetime where as I am quite sure the CZ will not due to some substandard parts (why else would they give extra parts with the gun?). The CZ is shooting fine for now, lets see after some time - whereas the Sig X6 with its high-end manufacturing will endure much much longer with accuracy. I think to get the better objective - we will decide who all to invite to the next comparison where I will be bringing the CZ and we will try to film it as well again and also shoot. And at the end of the day, we were not originally asked to compare... rather we were there to enjoy a new mercedes of guns... and it was a very enjoyable ride! :)
02-11-2010, 10:38 AM
Congrats Glockcohlic Bro. Must be pleasure to shoot.
May you have many more. :)
