    P320 Voluntary Upgrade, Will you do it?

    Shipped my 320's 12-19, got a notice they shipped today. Pretty fast turn around.

    320 X-5 accuracy

    Just how accurate is the 320 X-5? My X-5 seems to me to be extremely accurate, however my eyes are old and I really can't shoot tiny groups anymore. To those of you with young eyes, just how accurate is the X-5? How does it compare with the new P210?

    Mixing powders

    Mixing powder is never a good thing, rather than take a chance on blowing up an expensive gun (it does happen) to save a $28 (a # of N320), I tossed the whole #. Thanks for the input.

    Mixing powders

    I inadvertently mixed some ClayDot (Clays copy) with some VV N320, Clays and N320 are 31 & 32 on the burn chart. I'm loading 9mm, should I toss it or try the mixed?

    P320 X5 Thread

    No, they are not the same, both are quality triggers. I have a GG trigger on my 320 and I've handled Robert Burke's trigger job 320. I found the GG trigger to be more like a short stroke revolver with 0 take-up, whereas the Burke trigger was more like a 1911 with a definite take-up. I prefer the GG trigger, my splits are faster than ever, faster even than my Brazos Custom. Hope that helps.

    Anybody make a 320 tungsten guide rod

    Interesting the lighter spring weights with the 147 gr. I'm using a 19# with 125 gr. Bayou bullet, 4.2 N320, Springer tungsten guide rod, GrayGuns FCU, with excellent results. I shot my first match today with my 320 X5, this is by far the flattest-shooting, most accurate 9mm I have ever fired. I've never shot that many 'A's before.

    I just called GG and they do NOT have a guide rod for the X-5 yet!

    It works for me beautifully, I like the curved trigger.

    P320 X5 Thread

    Yes, it's the luck of the draw. My X-5 trigger is not as good as my compact 320 with GG trigger. However, after replacing my X-5 FCU with my GG FCU, I now have a beautiful trigger!

    Help, how do I take apart the captured guide rod so I can remove 4 coils??

    P320 X5 Thread

    Yes Alma, I replaced the original X-5 FCU (I thought terrible for a competition gun) with my 320 FS GrayGuns FCU and striker assembly, slid right in, now I have a real competition X-5. First thoughts on my X-5 after 200 rounds, Yes it's accurate, however due to a too heavy recoil spring, I had several jams with my favorite load (4.2 N320 125JHP) and the slide would not always lock back after the last round. However the gun functioned flawlessly with hot defensive ammo (1200 fps). Where can I get a non-captured guide rod so I can install a lighter recoil spring??

    Alma, I p/u my X-5 tomorrow, is that flat trigger a Grayguns trigger ?
