    P320 X5 Thread

    Friend of mine had a M17 that fired 2 rounds with one trigger pull. It blew the extractor, and the second case obviously out of battery, since the lower 1/4 of the case was severely bulged all the way around.
  2. To me, longer is always more better. I think sight radius is the major factor. On the mass of the slide and recoil; the slide moves in both directions so it kinda negates any muzzle rise because of the extra weight of the slide. Key word there is "kinda".
  3. Do they make a manual safety model of the 365? I would definitely be interested in one if they do.

    P320 X5 Thread

    All I know is that my trigger improved greatly and I'm going back to using the Sig instead of a 1911A2. Now if I could just figure out how to disassemble the manual safety FCU.
  5. ouch! That hurts. I could have gone without seeing that.
  6. I watched the Alma Cole video, but the FCU with the safety is more complicated. I may try Brownells, but I was hoping to find a video, or illustrated instructions.
  7. I'm looking for instructions, or a youtube on the disassembly and assembly of the fire control unit for the M17 or P320 with the manual safety. Does anybody have a link? I've looked but haven't had any luck so far.

    320 mags in X5?

    My standard P320 17 round mags will not fit in the X5 with the flared mag well.

    P320 X5 Thread

    This sounds like a good idea, if you insist on the X5 for a duty gun, and certainly cheaper than buying a V-TAC if you already have a X5.

    P320 X5 Thread

    If your looking for a duty carry, I think you would be better off with the V-TAC instead of the X5; it's more suited to duty carry than the X5 with the flared mag well and sharp delicate sights that will cut you and/or break if they hit something. If I hadn't already committed to buying the X5 when it came in, I would have jumped on the V-TAC that came in the same day. I could have carried the V-TAC off duty, and competed with it, but only compete with the X5, I'm stuck with an issue Glock for work.
  11. I have too many guns. What should I do, should I sell some so i can yadda, yadda, yadda....... I hate these questions. A pistol or rifle is a tool. How many auto mechanics do you know that have just a crescent wrench in their tool box and that's it? Answer: None. They are usually looking for more tools so they can do their job more efficiently. And for the record, I hate Glocks and I have more than one, and none of them are for sale or trade.
  12. Just for my clarification on the Glock knuckle, are you talking about your trigger finger or your middle finger?
  13. The X5 barrel is longer than the full size P320. I got a Blade Tech holster for a full size P320 and the X5 will not fit in it.
  14. I don't think so. It took mine a little longer to get back than most (I had 2 there), and that doesn't include the issue I had with FredsEX and the required signature.
  15. Go ahead and get your carry pistol slicked up, as long as it it safe and reliable. I spoke with an attorney that is a competitive shooter, and he researched to see if there was a prosecution or civil case that involved a pistol with a modified trigger. He said he could not find a case where the pistol had any thing to do with the case if the shooting was a justified use of force to begin with. In other words, it doesn't matter if your pistol is stock out of the box, or a highly modified competition pistol, a good shoot is a good shoot, and a bad shoot is a bad shoot.
