The SIG 226 Blackwater is a branded SIG 226 Tactical Operations. I will tell you up front that I don't know a whole lot about Blackwater or Xe or whatever they are calling themselves now. This review is a look at the SIG 226 (Blackwater) Tactical Operations, not a History of Blackwater.
Cool Guy Factor
The cool factor of this pistol is off the charts! With Blackwater's symbol on the grips, slide and their name engraved across the front of the slide there is no mistaking the intended purpose of this pistol. So what is the intended purpose of this pistol? For most people this pistol will fill a spot in the safe (or ego) and be pulled out to impress friends when needed. Make no mistake this is still a SIG 226; which means that it has proven itself as a fighting pistol of the highest degree; operating in the World's most demanding conditions.
I had a blast firing this pistol. My three top favorite features of the SIG 226 (Blackwater) Tactical Operations are:
- Green TRUGLO Front Sight
