  1. I played with different weights and found the brass rods balanced best for me. I used AR buffet weights and had a friend pour lead around them. It was HEAVY. It’s was great for shooting single rounds. Once you got 2-3 rounds quickly, it was hard to control the muzzle from moving up and down. RHT made my holster. There is ZERO retention so I’m thinking about putting some strap or something on it to prevent it from coming out while resetting a stage.
  2. SSI tungsten grip with tungsten weight, springer tungsten guide rod, 13 lb 1911 recoil spring, broken TLR-1 with brass rods that are the same size as cr123s. I haven’t weighed it yet but it is at least as heavy as a full dust cover plastic grip 2011. Probably heavier. I’m running the Dawson sights. Obsessive shooter and I were testing muzzle rise with slow mo and the CZ TS was slightly less muzzle rise. I had two 2011s and sold them to stick with the 320 platform because that’s what I use for work. I don’t feel I’ve left anything on the table by switching. As as far as Glock 34 vs X5, I feel it’s all comes down to personal preference and what accessories either offer. I’ve shot a lot Glocks and think the Glock vs 320 is preference. With enough practice anyone can get used to any platform. Just stick with one platform and buy more bullets.
  3. The BURKE trigger is the best I’ve felt. I have both grey guns installed and BURKE triggers. The BURKE is better in all aspects. The BURKE has half the travel as the stock / Ggi and a better break. I felt someone’s home Ggi that was around 2 lbs. the break was mushy and the travel was the same. As long as the trigger is under 4 lbs or less, I’d rather have shorter travel and a good break. Going off feel, the BURKE is the same weight as my installed GGI trigger. https://www.thesigarmorer.com/product/320-cola/#p320-model
  4. 124 blue bullet rn 4.2 wst 1.135 col easily sub 3” offhand.
  5. That’s exactly why I’ve had my X5s milled to accept the delta point. Not too hard of a machine job either.
  6. I have an r1 3moa and 6moa. 3 moa took a crap and was never bright enough. 6moa is too bright or too dim and looks like a Potato. I had a friend who has a CNC cut my X5 slide. He made it contour to the dpp’s front curve and there is no side to side movement when not screwed in. Otherwise, the rear and screw holes lined up perfectly. I got the 6-48 x 3/4" Weaver Oval Head Refill pack I had to cut the screwes to the correct length. These were the only screws long enough that I could find anywhere. The down side is they are only in flat head. I used my wheeler tourque driver and didn’t strip them at 25 in/lb. 1,000+ rounds and everything is holding up great. Love the DPP 2.5 moa over any Romeo. https://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/small-hardware/metal-screws/long-6-48-8-40-screws-prod19929.aspx
  7. I’ve been running a cal exchange 40 full size with my X5 FCU and Dawson sights in limited. I have the tungsten guide rod and run a 12lb spring. If you get the 18 round 40 mags with the springer base plates and grams spring and follower you get 20 in the mag reloadable. With the stock barrel I can use 1.18 oal ammo I used to use for my 2011. I really like the way it shoots and is more than accurate for Uspsa. If you run the stock base plate on the 18 rounders you may need to cut them down to fit the X5 grip with mag well on. With springer base plates it’s no problem. I don’t know if the 13? round mags fit. I do run run a flashlight that uses cr123 batteries that I cut brass rods to fit inside. It makes a big difference with flip.
  8. I have never tried the triangle. For me with an astigmatism, the smallest dot possible with the brightest setting works best. Larger dots look misshaped and I look at the big glowing thing bouncing up and down.
  9. The 3 moa wasn’t bright enough unless shooting indoors. The 6 moa seems too dim or too bright and I would end up looking at the dot and not the target. I have an astigmatism, and the 6 moa dot looks like a patato and fuzzy. Also I stripped the top cover trying to tighten the cap down and the treads on the cap are very easy to strip. The DPP works best with my eyes and seems more robust overall. Last week the 3 moa completely died on me and I have an RMA to send it in.
  10. Funny, I just had my slide milled to accept the dpp. Got tired of Romeo 1.
  11. No I haven’t. I know the X5 springer guide rod that is 3.4 oz is $100. Approximately $34 an oz at that rate. $238 for the 7 oz in this grip at that rate. $80ish for the grip and the additional cost for silicon treatment makes it not look as bad for that rate. And I have two of those guide rods. There are several factors why I am I intersted in this grip. First - I don’t have time to experiment on how to secure 7 oz of tungsten in the grip. Second - I use a 320 with the x grip for work so this would be similar. Does anyone one have an idea about how they would secure 7 oz of tungsten in an X grip? I was thinking tungsten powder mixed in JB weld? I don’t know if there would be enough room though. I did find 8 oz of tungsten powder for about $40.
  12. Realized I should have included this. http://www.shootingsportsinnovations.com/X5-Tungsten-Grip-Module-X5-Tungsten-Grip.htm
