  1. After running a couple of mags through my X5 Legion when I first took it to the range to sight in my red dot, the glass was clouded up pretty good from the gas seeping through the LCI. If I wasn't shooting CO it wouldn't be a big deal. Other than that I love everything about the X5 Legion. But, great customer service by Sig to replace the barrel at no cost and to even pay for shipping.
  2. Nope. This is what they emailed to me (copied and pasted exactly what they emailed), " Please pack up the SLIDE, BARREL, AND RECOIL ASSEMBLY together in a case or box and secure it inside another shipping package. Remove all other items from the case. Please include a note indicating which firearm the slide belongs to. "
  3. I've got two Sig X5 Legions. Sent the complete upper to one of them back to Sig to replace the LCI with a non LCI barrel. Once it gets back I'll send in the upper for my other one. Sig sent me a shipping label to send in the upper to have the barrel replaced. So far the entire process has been great customer service.
  4. The trigger on my brand new P320 X5 Legion was so good right out of the box I doubted the GGI trigger system could improve on it. But, I bought one anyway with the curved trigger. It was easy to install while watching a Youtube video for guidance. The GGI trigger system is a definite improvement. It takes a very good trigger and makes it great. After install my trigger pull was consistently just under 3# with a shorter pretravel and reset. I would assume the trigger will continue to get better after I get a couple thousand rounds through the Legion. I've been using the CZ Shadow 2 in CO for the last few years, but I like this set up so much I've made the move.

    Great! Thanks.

    Does anyone have a link to the instructions for sending back the Legion for a barrel without the LCI? I can't seem to find any info on it even after I Google it? Thanks.
  7. I've got a Dawson Precision stainless STI Edge from when they used to sell a completely worked over model, and a Brazos stainless STI Edge. Both great guns. But both sitting in the safe. For Limited i'm using the TSO .40. I've been shooting a Shadow 2 in PRD and CO the last few years, so the TSO just felt "right" to me. It's completely stock.

    Legion accuracy

    I just bought a Sig Legion X5 and installed a tungsten guide rod. I currently use a couple CZ Shadow 2's in CO and Production. Both have CGW bushing. Not very scientific, but at 20 yards on a USPSA target the headshot groups of Legion X5 were identical to the S2 groups. Putting one shot next to the other shot after shot using Magtech 115 grain 9mm. I got lazy a few years ago and quit reloading as i was finding cheap factory 9mm. I also ran some Remington 115 grain and Blazer Brass 115 grain through the Legion X5 with the same results. So i'm guessing it really likes the 115 grain. I was fully expecting to be underwhelmed by the Legion X5. But i was very impressed overall with it; groupings, trigger, weight, felt recoil.
  9. I think the PRP trigger in the XDm is the best do it yourself trigger in a striker fired gun. I have 4 XDm's with a self installed PRP trigger. I had a Sig P320 and a P320 X5, both with GGI trigger. And while the GGI trigger definitely improved the Sig stock trigger, it didn't match up to the PRP trigger on the XDm. I know have a Sig P320 X5 Legion, with a stock trigger. And it's a nice improvement but it still doesn't measure up to the PRP on the XDm.
  10. Does anyone know if Sig is planning on releasing a Max X5 model? I'm definitely interested in the Legion X5, but if Sig is going to be coming out with a Max X5 in the next year or so I may just wait as I'm in no hurry. I thought I read that somewhere but now I can't find it? It would be nice to have a Legion X5 with a multiple red dot plate system.
  11. I've noticed the significant rise of CO competitors in my area (Central IL) over the last year and the drop of PCC. Last year PCC seemed to be really popular, but now I've noticed at the local matches I've shot this summer, PCC has really fallen off. PCC has had 1 competitor on the low end to 6 on the high end, with an average turnout of 74 total shooters in the four local matches from this summer I reviewed. I realize this is not anything close to being scientific. Just a general observation. Limited has definitely been the most popular (which was expected), followed closely by CO, with PRD and OPEN trading back and forth for third and 4th place. SS and PCC are a distant 5th and 6th, with REV barely registering (which was expected). At first it seemed as if competitors were really embracing PCC and sort of cool to CO, but that has really shifted, with CO taking off and PCC falling off. SS has had a low turnout for a few years and REV has just the occasional competitor at our local matches. At least this is what I notice in my area. Just wondering if anyone else is seeing the rise of CO and the fall of PCC in their area local matches?
  12. I used to have a CZ Phantom. Used to being the key words. Didn't think it would be too bad to completely disassemble and reassemble to put in a lighter spring package. I've got an SP01 Tactical, a couple Accu Shadows, a couple Shadow 2's. Shouldn't be any more difficult than the SP01 Tactical, right? Holy crap, I was never more frustrated trying to reassemble a gun than I was with that damn Phantom! It doesn't help that I have big hands and I was constantly fumbling up the small springs on the sear cage. And like the OP said, I kept locking up the hammer on reassembly before I figured out what I was doing wrong.
  13. I have a Desert Eagle .44 mag marked XIX. So it's one of the newer models. I don't have a lot of rounds through it, but i've never had an issue with reliability.
  14. I've got a couple of CZ Shadow 2 slides I use in CO. They make weight, but barely. At the IL SECT match my Shadow 2 weighed 44.9 oz with a plastic guide rod. It's been milled specifically for the Vortex Viper. I would like to just have a window milled on top of both slides. Nothing more. I want to keep as much weight as possible, but want a little bit of wiggle room should I change things up on it. Guide rod, red dot, etc. Does anyone know of a company that will do that basic milling, just a simple window on top of the slide? Most of the popular slide milling companies I've contacted will only do their full slide lightening package, which I don't want. Just a window on top of the slide. I don't want all the other weight removed. Thanks.

    Who did your slide lightening?
