  1. Scored a new Gen 3 17 last week. They don’t come around here often. All my other Glocks are Gen 5s at this point. 
     

    I think I’m going to set up this 17 for IDPA. What should I do trigger wise? I’m a fan of the stock trigger but it’s a little heavy. Minus connector, extra power trigger spring, and a lighter striker spring?

     

    I know the extra power trigger springs didn’t work real well in the Gen 4s. Generally not a fan of minus connectors because I like to keep it as crisp as possible but I think the Gen 3s are more forgiving to them just because of the better geometry and all. 
     

     


  2. 223 JP at my shop. Looks pretty standard JP but it has a proof research barrel on it. Dude that works there is like yea JP uses them exclusively. I was like ummm but didn’t say anything lol. 
     

    Has a lightweight carrier. Don’t think it has adjustable gas either. Doesn’t even look like it’s been shot, if much at all. 
     

    I’m half tempted to buy it but that barrel gives me hesitation. What do you think? Hard to judge without pics I know but...

     

    might be able to stop by tomorrow and get a pic or two. 


  3. Haven’t seen a thread on this yet?

     

    steel frame X5.

  4. Looks cool. I’d probably prefer this over the q5 sf, even for competition so I’ll def check one out. 
     

    Only thing I don’t like it their backstrap at the top. It’s wide and can irritate the thumb knuckle but otherwise this is gonna be sweet.

    If you pull out a Glock OEM channel liner, the inside is really rough, even brand new ones.  I sent a slide out to BattleWerx for optic milling and when it came back the trigger felt amazing.  I found out they remove the OEM liners when re-finishing and replace them with the white liners from Lone Wolf. https://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=634145  They cost the same but the insides are completely smooth.  It only drops the weight by an once or so, but it removes a lot of the grittyness and stacking since the spring cups and striker spring are rubbing against slick plastic.  They're all I use now.


    I’m going to try that in my carry Glock that’s all stock just to see what the difference is. I need to grab a channel liner tool.

    My gen 5 34 has the nicest glock trigger I have ever felt with solely a 4.5 pound striker spring...


    came to post exactly this. All the gen 5 needs is a reduced striker string to match a reduced recoil spring and you are good. 
     

    if you wanted to be really anal (hehe), you could get the Guardian trigger because it’s all factory parts that have a mirror polish on them and it’d make things even smoother along with the reduced striker spring but eh, that’s just if you have money to burn.

    I have both, I like both. The tipping point as been now the the SF is reliable, which it wasn't at first with low PF ammo, was the lok grip thin grip which changed it to more familiar and changed my grip so my thumb knuckle doesnt dig into the beaver tail angle. The X5 Legion is just dead reliable, isn't picky about anything, uses 1911 springs right out of the box so easy to tune to your PF. Only thing I hate about the Legion is the round indication notch in the barrel vents dirty gases into the optic even its its pretty rear mounted like mine is. In short, neither is perfect out of the box, and I think you could make either work just fine.

     

     


    Sig will replace that barrel for free. 
     

    hoping Glock‘s big announcement on 12/10 is a tungsten 34 but I bet that’s like a 3% chance. 


  8. I want to buy one of these. I was at my shop/range shooting yesterday and they had one but couple quick questions about the LCI barrel. 
     

    will it be an issue with the new Romeo 1 pro or is that protected from the gas? And also, if I send it in to Sig to be replaced, can you send just the upper? I don’t want to have to deal with going through my FFL to get this fixed. 
     

    My other dealer has 2 X5 legions in stock. May check there to see if by some miracle one doesn’t have the LCI barrel.

    G34.5 plunk and spin with no issues. My only issue is between my ears. Sometimes my thumb rides up and slows down the slide.

    that’s why I like 124g. 147 feels like the slide is moving really slow. 


  10. Optic sits higher and it’s not as secure. People try to justify the MOS as being just as good but it’s not. Just a matter if it’s worth it to you to spend a little extra to get it milled.

    Seems like everybody like the gun, trigger is good, most think better with Gray Guns Trigger kit.

    General bitch is the LCI smoking up the lens on carry optic guns.  Sig will replace the barrel with a little prodding to a non LCI barrel.

    I took a regular x5 with a gray guns kit in it and bought just the grip, I'm very satisfied with that choice times two. FWIW

     

    I bought a couple of x5 non legions very right and both had the GG kit and guide rods in them when bought so I was money ahead with both. again FWIW 

    Seems like the non X5 went low in price once the Legion came out.

     

    Cool. Well I was playing with one at the store today and seemed pretty nice. Trigger was ok, not great. Normal Sig 320 type feel. I think it’s a great value so may grab it to play around with.
