  1. Memphis Mechanic I have been considering that seriously and may do it. recovering from an eye surgery so I have to wait a few more weeks. How do you like your Q5, it was the other gun I considered purchasing. the new SF version looks to be a really beast, although I have only seen one in pictures only. thanks
  2. DDC I agree, 3 of my phone calls resulted in a supervisor. When I asked if I could speak to anyone above the supervisor at I was told that not company policy. I understood so I asked if they would forward my thoughts on to the next level, each time I was told no, politely mind you but still no. The last time I was actually told sorry its not worth the company's time consider your thoughts because there were too few with this problem (I'm paraphrasing but that's close). I did hear the name of the Professional shooter for SIG and looked him up on Facebook and reached out to him. He was able to s
  3. WASHOOTERR " Is this a troll post? If the rear notch is a problem for some shooters, Brownells sells files and stones. Widening a sight doesn’t require brain surgery skills. Maybe I am a simpleton but I don’t understand what the problem is here. The X5 is pretty user friendly and very well set up from the factory compared to things you gotta tweak on a Tanfoglio or something similar" Nope not at all is this a troll post. It is intended to be an honest assessment based on my experience only. I agree with you this platform from the factory is user friendly from the factory, one of the
  4. George16 maybe my original post was unclear, sorry if that was the case. When Sig Reps told me 5 separate times nothing could be done and the site manufacture stated they where concerned it would comprise the integrity of the site I assumed it could not be accomplished by anyone. That was two reputable sources that has developed a solid reputation. As I thought about what I had been told before the purchase of the gun regard sites being replaceable and what I learned after the purchase, I did not and still do not believe the truth was told. We agree that if there is a will there is a way and
  5. I was able to speak with one of the SIG Team Pro shooters regarding my site challenges. Although SIG customer service reps stated the sites could not be milled and Dawson Precision was uncomfortable changing sigs design, I have learned it can be done, I reached out to a local gun smith who is willing to do the work when he returns from the shot show!
  6. TerryDoc, did you read my response that Dawson Precision will not widen the sights? Still looking for a local gun smith that may do it but so far SIG and Dawson will not widen the sites. No,not buyers remorse I love the weapon except the sights, however, I felt I did enough research to knew what the possibilities were. I want to let unexpected buyers know that this platform does not meet the unspoken industry standards that lets me customize my gun to my needs. Interesting point, call any gun manufacture with a competition gun and you can fit that weapon to your needs. You are not forced to a
  7. George 16, not as easy as stated. Dawson Precision will not do it because they fear it will weaken the site integrity. As far as educating myself to changing out the sights it was asked, can I swap out site, yep you can was the answer. However, I was not specific to the rear blade being swapped. Beside, tell me another manufacture that you can not configure the gun the way you want it. I know of no other manufacture that does not allow you to modify their sights to your needs. I point this out to let others know the basic understanding that we have as gun owners does not apply to the 320 and I
  8. Hitman_usmc makes good points about selling it, however, I'm working a tight budget for now. The point I am trying to make is SIG determined what sight everyone should use, what happened to choice? I five conversation not once did anyone remotely consider maybe there was a better way to approach this. The sight chosen is a very narrow competition sight, however, due to vision issues (had two surgeries in two months to correct) I can not pick up the front sight through the rear sight. Had I known I could not replaced the rear sight as I can in all other platforms, I would not have purchased th
  9. I wanted to share a review for the Sig X Five so you the rest of the story when you purchase weapons. I purchased this gun a year ago for USPSA and 3 Gun and love the gun, except the rear sights! As I understand it the sights were designed by SIG with input from a shooting pro, according to SIG. The sights are manufactured by Dawson Precision, truly a great company for sights. It is not my intention that Dawson is at fault with these sights, they are not. Dawson design according to what SIG contracted for, simple as that. The problem is SIG designed the X Five to use only this rear sight, NO E

    P320 X5 Thread

    SIG X five buyers beware. NOTE, I love the X Five but the rear iron sight. However, you are stuck with it if you want to shoot iron sights like me. No other competition gun is develop that I can not configure the sights to my needs but the SIG X Five, what a shame. I have tried to discuss this with SIG five separate time, they do not care. Make sure you like that rear blade sight before you purchase it, you can not replace it with others. Had I known this before purchasing, I would not have purchased it.

    P320x5 or....

    I bought the SIG and since your looking to use an RMR it will be nice, however, do not try and replace the rear iron sight, you can not. SIG does not allow you to use any other sight but what they have provided. A friends son shoots the Canik and loves it for the price point!
