    P320 X5 Thread

    SIG is now selling a full size version of the standard X. It is basically the X5 without the mag well. Just FYI. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    SIG has a new X model out. SIG W320XF-9-BXR3. Basically an X5 without the mag well. It would probably be a good choice for "the one" pistol. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    With the 320 it is just field stripping the gun and then taking the take down lever out of the frame. Pretty simple. With that said (and if budget allows) I'd prefer to have an additional pistol. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    Unusual thing about something like the P320 VTAC. Buy it and shoot it as a general range piece and/or competition handgun. Buy a compact grip shell for $40 and a couple 15rd compact mags for $35 each. For about $100 you'll have the ability to add a compact frame to the gun so it will conceal a little better. Or go the full conversion route and buy a compact conversion kit. Then you could have a full size gun for open carry or range and a compact for concealing. All with the exact same trigger and other controls. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    So you want a Glock 19-ish size or something smaller? M&P 2.0 SIG P320 Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    Ruger American Pistol

    Ruger isn't the only company producing yesterday's pistol today. Another example is the CZ P10C. I like the CZ but it is really nothing more than a Gen4 Glock made by another company. It has an ambi slide release but otherwise there's not much there. No modularity. No provision for a red dot and no way to take the gun apart without pulling the trigger. The CZ would have been awesome ten years ago but there are probably better choices out there in the current market. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    Ruger American Pistol

    Don't get me wrong. I think the American (with the slide crack upgrade) is probably going to be as durable and rugged as anything else out there. It would probably work just fine as a pistol to be carried in the glove compartment, etc. But it is just one pistol in a market that's absolutely saturated with 17 round striker fired pistols and doesn't offer anything unique or different from pretty much everything else on the market. That's probably where Ruger screwed up the most with the American. It is a chassis gun but the chassis used in the full size and compact are unique to those guns. No way to size it up or down. Also there are no plastic grip module options. No green, tan, etc. Why make a chassis and then not make it adaptable to other configurations? Also, it would have been completely easy to add a plate for a red dot. Maybe not everyone wants a red dot on a handgun but it is one of the current trends and something that would have helped set the American apart in a crowded market. I guess I'm saying that the American would have been a nice gun about 5-10 years ago. But it is behind the power curve now. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    New Security-9

    I messed with one for awhile but then got rid of it. It was reliable but my sample shot about 4" high at 15 yards. Also, the lack of a beavertail and the fact that the slide is rather sharp meant I kept getting cut by the slide. The POA/POI issue was probably an easy fix and one Ruger would likely have done under warranty. The slide bite issue was another matter. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    Hard to say without knowing your intentions. If you're wanting a shooter for plinking or something that you can throw in a saddle bag on your motorcycle the American will probably be fine. My only concern here might be the ambi mag release. The release isn't very protected and a bump on either the right or left side might push the button. A good holster than protects the mag release should be used. If you want the gun for competition you'd probably be better off looking elsewhere. There is little aftermarket support for the American. You'll be hard pressed to find trigger/spring upgrades and stuff like that. With that said; I assume Ruger will bring a "competition" model to the market at some point now that they have a Shooting Team. Also--Ruger has recently announced a recall notice. Some of the early guns might develop a crack in the slide. It sounds like the issue has already been identified and a fix found. Just FYI if you find a used gun or NOS gun in a shop.

  11. Anyone tried these? Do they actually work? Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  12. I'll sell my Swage It if anyone wants to try one. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  13. Yes. I've used this as well as the lever activated unit that's sort of like the Dillon. Slow slow slow. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  14. Yep. Which is the better value? Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
