    SIG SAUER MPX Airgun – The Perfect Plinker

       

    Seems like I also saw post on the yellow/network54  forum on HPA conversion.

    I have a MCX, after 3 months started leaking CO2 out the receiver and would jam all the time. Sent it back to Sig and they paid the shipping which was nice. Haven’t shot it to much since I got it back but all good now. Bought a MPX from Pyramyd Air, started leaking CO2 half way thru the first mag. Sent it back for another one and that one started leaking just after getting the red dot sighted in. Sent it back to Pyramyd for my money back.

    I also have the Beretta CX4. The Beretta is a  lot lighter than my MCX and the trigger has a slight edge as you don’t feel the belt indexing as you squeeze the trigger. Mags are also easier to load with the CX4. Currently the MCX seems to have the edge in accuracy at 20 yards. In all fairness my CX4 also broke after a couple months (cracked receiver) and Beretta sent me a new one and that was a year ago, no issues with this one. The head to head Airgun Depot did a few months ago is a good read that I would have to agree with.

    I’ve found the RWS Meisterkugeln Pistol 7.0 grain Wadcutters to shoot the best in my CX4. They also shoot well out my MCX.

    I think the consensus on these are that they are toys made for short range plinking. It is a large co2 bb/pellet gun. Now lets double the price and make it a pcp like huben and I think we could have ourselfs a winner. Oh yea and maybe use a real barrel like a walther one.

    If it was double the price I would have one.  Sig mcx $ 200.00. Huben $ 1700.00. Yes its a plinker, i would imagine good to 25 yds and it sure looks like fun.  Everything in life isnt about power.

Walmart around here stopped selling the JT 90 grams for what ever reason. The only place that sells them is Dicks. Cheapest is to order them online from Walmart.

Thats exactly what I came to realize and exactly where I went to get the Co2..

    I am getting the gun all set up I just need a slammed length of keymod rail and I’ll be all set.

I found the same thing with every co2 gun I ever bought. They never lasted. The ones that were the most fun always broke first too. That full auto mini Uzi was great fun for the three weeks it lasted. 

    It would take a lot to make me buy another Co2 gun. The only 2 that have tempted me in the last year have been the Air Ordnance SMG 22 and the Drulov 9mm co2 gun (but not enough to buy one).

    Now if Sig made a version of the MCX that fired 9mm or 7.62mm pellets at 400-500 fps in semi or full auto, it would be hard not to buy one for the squirrels.

    I finished up the test today, i was rained out yesterday.

    I am editing the video tonight, it will be uploaded in the next 2 days..

    I plain on hunting with the sig tomorrow

    I will add a link to my instagram account where i will post pictures of all the targets and pellets.

    I also made a chart that shows how they: 
    Penetrated – through 2 sheets of dry wall
    expansion
    accuracy 
    cost
    weight

    Winner = Corsman Destroyers
    They tied for tightest group   
    cost $3.00 a tin of 250
    Did the most damage all passing (destroying) through 2 layers of sheet rock.
    and have ok expansion
