  1. I'm all for it. I probably won't buy this particular gun, but if they can get it to work and keep mags affordable, a steel grip will be in the near future by them or another company no doubt, and then it'll be a major player.
  2. I don't know anyone running 30 in big sticks. I've heard it's possible but reliability is questionable, and it certainly won't be reloadable. I would aim for 29 with full reliability. I use MBX 170s that run 29 reliably from the factory. I have a couple 170 STI Gen 2s that I will mess with by putting Grams guts in and a TTI base plate to see what I can get.
  3. Hahaha yeah the shooting supplement thing is a stretch. I doubt that will be around for long. At least the Nueroscience is a new concept for consumers.
  4. That doesn't make any sense to me. From what I've seen the 38SC have 3 holes and 9major has 2. One of the advantages to 38SC is being able to generate more gas, but that gas is only helpful if you use it to mitigate recoil... aka use more holes. Adam should be able to provide you with a good reason if he is suggesting it.
  5. Literally nothing in this thread will be said that wasn't already said in the thread at the bottom of the page...

    P320 X5 Thread

    Fantastic information, thanks. I did not install the full kit, just the trigger, so the trigger bar spring is still factory. I also chopped off a couple of coils from ONE of the sear springs. This was an experiment because I had read of people removing one sear spring with success, but I didn't want to go to that length. Could certainly be that, but the amount of spring tension and noise I feel during reset is undoubtedly coming from the trigger bar spring. I did not lubricate anything, just added grease to the same location as it was from the factory and where Alma recommended in his disassembly video: where trigger bar meets FCU housing. I'll go put a few hundreds rounds through it for function testing and see if 'breaking it in' again helps with any of it. Long term plan has always been to get a professional trigger job done it and I don't plan on competing in production or CO very competitively.

    P320 X5 Thread

    Good to know. I put it back together and seems to function fine dry-fire wise. Side note, I installed the PELT and polished the sear, FCU housing, and trigger bar. I reassembled and probably chopped 1.5-2 pounds off the pull with less travel it seems, BUT the reset is VERY choppy and doesn't seem to reset with as much force. It feels like the trigger return spring is rusted or something. Any idea on what is going on?
  8. I may be making this up in my head but I think I remember Phil Strader talking about a .40 X5 in the works.

    Uhhh, so I guess they aren't needed? haha I have put probably 800 rounds through it and it functions fine. For what it's worth I don't remember seeing it when I disassembled, I stopped after pulling out the sear and didn't take out the housing so I assumed it just stayed in there (not knowing how it worked or what it was) but it makes more sense now that it wasn't even in there in the first place.

    It's an early production X5 with upgrade.

    Anyone know of somewhere with a safety lifter spring in stock? Seems I lost mine during disassembly.

    Finally shot a match with the X5 in production, and it is quickly growing on me. It's not quite as nice as a full steel gun obviously, but it performed admirably. I put 400 rounds through it the day before and it really helped break the gun in.
  13. The winner ALSO won a different match with an Atlas... LOL And in a different year, a winner also won one of the matches with a Glock, which is widely agreed upon as an inferior platform. Long story short, people have shooting teams with pro shooters in hopes of having people be swayed just like you just were, but I agree with the sentiment that you should find what works for you. If you don't have anyone, that's a very very expensive investment to make based on the interwebs. Limcat, Akai, Atlas... all going to get you the generally same performance. As long as your equipment is reliable, which all those smiths are, then you start looking at price, looks, customer service, etc. Limcat is too flashy for me personally and I have seen a lot of malfunctions from all the shooters near me who run them (large Filipino community), but it could easily just be failure to make good ammo on their part, because any of those smiths require high quality ammo to ensure good reliability. I do plan on buying a Limcat magwell to stick on my Chaos in the off-season.

    Anyone know where to get a rear sight plate for the X5? Or assuming the RX one works too. Reason, I have a Vortex Venom sitting on the Springer Precision plate on my X5, and the sight is maxed out to the right and I'm still needing to adjust the POI. I need to put other sights on there to see if it's the gun or the optic, and I can't find where I put the sight plate that came with it. Haven't had any luck finding one and surprised it's not on sigsauer's shop that I can see. TIA
  15. I didn't think this would be this contentious. Several months later, I have been taking it a little easier on the powerlifting as I had to prepare for my annual PT test and uspsa nationals, but I don't regret using them. My wrist mobility has increased enough that I find myself needing them less, and that is with very little work on wrist mobility. I do spend a lot of time working mobility drills through ROMWOD which has been extremely helpful in keeping me healthy and limber.
