    Trijicon SRO/X-Five

    I was looking at doing this. L&M Precision Gun works can convert the standard X5 Romeo 1 cut to accept the RMR/SRO while still maintaining the ability to still use a Romeo 1. I guess the RMR footprint is ever so slightly longer than the Romeo1 which allows the front and back of the cut to act as recoil "lugs". I ask him about the Sig slides that were already cut for the Romeo 1 pro / Deltapoint. He said he could still convert them, however the RMR/SRO would have to sit at the very front of the current slide cut and there would be a small gap in the back. In this configuration, I think the front of the SRO would overhang the ejection port too much. My main concern when converting a Sig slide with the deltapoint cut would be the ability to cut in recoil bosses that mount up to the RMR/SRO. If this isn't done, I would think all of the forces would get applied to the screws holding the optic on which could in turn cause issues such as zero shift and the screws coming loose or even breaking.
  2. I received the same email around the same time and I submitted mine online. They better get a move on as the "store rewards" expired at the end of September.
  3. Well I have over 2k rounds on two different Legions. While I love the pistols, I think Sig missed the mark a bit. In my opinion, the following items should have been either carried over from the X5 or improved upon. 1. Finish.. While I don't really care what my guns look like, the finish should not show significant signs of wear after 2 practice sessions. With over a year of shooting the standard X5, the finish still looks like new. 2. Low profile plate system for mounting optics. In this day and age, every other manufacture is giving us options on what optics we can run. Heck you can't even run their original Romeo without modification to the optic. 3. Lock Up - I loved the way the standard X5 locked up. While it may not effect the accuracy of the pistol, it does effect the trigger "feel". 4. Trigger over-travel - While I completely agree the legion's stock trigger is better than the X5, why not remove some of the over travel to reduce the reset distance. GG did this pretty easily with a simple sleeve over a pin. 5. LCI -- Really? It would have been different if they did the same thing they did on the M17 and added the LCI to the slide. Don't get me wrong, the guns are great but I feel like while there were some good improvements over the X5, I think they took a few steps backwards at the same time. Maybe some of these issues will get addressed on the X5 Max version that has been rumored. For anyone who has an standard X5 and is happy with the Romeo 1 or has the springer plate system, just by the grip module. I think you will be happier in the long run. I was a little sad to see that Sig removed the X5 from their product page. I went to a few local shops last night with the intention of buying the standard X5 and using the top end on my second Legion's bottom end.
  4. I am sure they added the LCI so they could use the barrel in "other" applications in the future. One barrel for multi applications allows them to only stock that one part instead of multiple ones. Its interesting that the didn't add the LCI to the slide.. Maybe that be a "feature" on the next revision.
  5. Been thinking of picking up one of these for my X5 Legion. Did you have any issues before you filed it back? How much did you end up removing? On Trijicon's website, they show the site mounted to a few different pistols where it was overhanging the ejection port a lot more than the picture you posted above. Its interesting that the made the hood as long as they did.

    Romeo 1 Pro

    Something to keep in mind. Sig lists the sight at $479. Actual street prices will be closer to $399 which is inline with other quality optics. My two Romeos have been pretty solid with no issues, but with a 5 year warranty on the electrics, the price is pretty reasonable considering all red dots will die at some point... I wish the Legion accepted the Romeo 1 as I can order that sight for $210.. I just got an email back after asking them what MOA versions are available for pre-order and was told both should be available at the same time which is by the end of August. Only time will tell if the new Romeo 1 pro will be reliable though..

    Romeo 1 Pro

    Thanks. I bought this one from a store with a great return policy.. I think at this time I am just going to return it. Since they haven't addressed this issue, its only a matter of time before it happens again. I was able to get ahold of Sig and they are allowing pre-orders for the Romeo1 Pro. Not sure if its for the 3moa or 6moa dot size. Price quoted was 479. Upon researching, it appears the new Pro model comes with the metal shroud that was an option for the Romeo1. I guess this was the primary factor for the increased price. When looking at the pictures on Sig product page, the sights look almost identical with the exception that the front of the Romeo 1 Pro is slightly extended due to the new footprint.

    Romeo 1 Pro

    Sig finally got back and said by the end of next month. All I can say is it can't get released fast enough. One of the two deltapoints that I purchased for my legions just died. It lasted a tad under 200 rounds. It shuts off after 1 shot. When inspecting it, the silver contact under the battery came loose and made it all the way to the rear of the battery compartment. I am about to just buy 2 Romeo 1s for now and mod them to use on the legion since I can pick them up for the price of 1 deltapoint…

    Romeo 1 Pro

    Sig is listing the length of the Romeo 3 max at 2.1 inches. The deltapoint is 1.82 inches. The way the current cut is in the legion, I don't think it will fit without a mounting plate. The other thing is will the original Romeo 1 be phased out once the Romeo 1 pro is released. That would suck if have an older slide cut for the older Romeo and not be able to purchase the optic any longer.

    Romeo 1 Pro

    Has anyone heard of a release date for this dot? I just purchased a couple of Deltapoints for my X5 Legions, but I am not overly excited about them. I watched a P365xl video which stated the Romeo 0 would be released late this month/early August. I was hoping the new Romeo1 Pro would get released before that. I wish they would have cut the legion slide for the Romeo 3 Max and released both at the same time to make things easy.
  11. The Romeo 1 has small notch designed to be used as a sight if the dot goes down. Not great but works if you add a .250 height front sight.
  12. Visually? Legion has a cut in the barrel for the Loaded chamber indicator, the color, and the rear sight plate. The Legion slide has the legion logo on the plate. The Legion also has a larger optics cut to account for the Deltapoint and Romeo 1 pro. I guess you could argue that you were using all Sig factory parts "on" a production gun.
  13. I will give that a try tomorrow. The slide, to frame, to barrel lock up never bothered me with the legion as it didn't effect accuracy. But the difference really effects the trigger "feel". In the end, it probably doesn't matter that much when shooting at speed. For me, I would always want a short positive reset over trigger feel any day. If I was shooting bullseye, I am sure that would be reversed. With all that said, the legion trigger out of the box is very good. The gg kit provides a slight improvement, most noticably in the reset length due to the over travel sleeve. There may be a way to install a set screw in the factory legion trigger to act as an over travel stop. I may toy with that down the road.
  14. So I had a chance to play around with the triggers of my two legions today and found some interesting things out. Stock, both triggers were about the same. Pull weights were within an ounce of each other. Picking the guns up off a table you could tell no difference. There is some creep, to a clean break. Reset was ok, but not as good when compared to the GG kit. Pulling at the bottom of the trigger shoe resulted in pull weights around 3lbs 3 oz. Next I took one of the Legions and replaced the trigger bar spring with one from GG. This spring is suppose to be lighter than a "stock" spring. To my surprise nothing changed. Then I decided to take out the GG kit out of my standard X5. Once installed, I measured the pull weight which was 2lbs 14oz. The creep was still there but the reset shortened up. This setup was good, just not great. As some people have noted, the lock up on the legions are not what as good as the standard X5. My standard X5 has always locked up super tight, so I decided to see what happens if I install the standard X5 top end on the legion bottom end. WOW is all I can say. With this configuration, the creep almost completely disappeared. You have a little take up to the wall, almost no creep, to a clean break. The trigger truly feels amazing. On a side note, when did Sig stop using the lifter spring Neither Legion had one installed. I also checked my new Xcompact and it doesn't have one either. Now here is where things get interesting. Standard X5 top end refuses to go completely into battery using the same 12 lb spring that has always worked. You have to nudge it home. I thought the spring may be a little weak so I tried a new one.. Still a no go. I installed the 14lb spring and it seems to be fine. I just find it interesting that the 12lb spring worked fine with the standard X5 lower but not the legion lower. As a disclaimer, everyone may have different results. I think in my instance, tolerance stacking is playing a big part to the results I am getting. The same trigger in my standard X5 was good but became great when installed in the legion.
  15. I think optics are the biggest issue ATM. Finding a deltapoint at a reasonable price has become a little hard. I did find one for my match gun but can't seem to find one for the practice/backup gun. I am not 100% sold on the deltapoint. I like the window size but hate how high it sits up on the slide. Brightness for the 2.5 MOA dot is "ok". I think it really needs one more setting for when you are shooting a stage where the sun is directly in front of you. I also question the long term durability as I have read some of the issues that other users have faced. Only time will tell I guess. I am not a fan of drilling out the screw holes on the Romeo 1 either. I kinda think that sig will void the warranty if you do so. Plus, that option doesn't provide any slide support for the optic, it will just be held on by the two screws.
