  1. Unfortunately the project was aborted, due to Sig removing so much material out of the slide there wouldn’t have been enough material to have more then 2 threads holding the optic on. I ended up getting a custom plate made out of aluminum that was about 1/2 the thickness of the springer.

    320 Light Strikes

    Never had a light strike, My X5’s, Legion’s, and my X-Carry have never seen factory ammo, but they light off every Sm Rifle primer on the market.
  3. They have been making that claim for almost a year now. Last person I talked to (June 2019) was pretty rude too, so even if they do ill keep my money in my pocket.
  4. How aggressive is the "E2 aggressive" compared to the EVO? I really like the texture of the EVO, but im not sure if I need to get the Extra aggressive, id like it to be close to the texture of the EVO, but doesn't have to be exact.

    Grip modules

    Legion with silicone carbide. I prefer the X-series grip module's overall, I even bought the Tungsten grip module for my standard X5 that Shooting Sports innovations was selling before Sig came out with the Legion grip module's
  6. Your gun came out BA!!! Is the builder CJ local to Atlanta? I cracked the slide on my first open gun (its an older gun), id like to get a new top end build with newer updated parts and id like to have someone local build it.
  7. Here's my X-Carry that I had cut for RMR. This slide has the Romeo 1 cut, if yours is cut for a DPP, you will not be able to mount the RMR without a plate. Sig has hogged out the bottom side of the slide so much that there's not enough material to recut the slide with recoil bosses. What me and my buddy determined was that we needed to mill the front portion of the cut just a touch and then drill & tap the holes. We used a CNC machine to do the milling and drilling & tapping, because it needed to be very precise. This would allow the optic needed to be sandwiched front to back to insure there wouldn't be added stress on the bolts. FYI, one of the bolt holes for the RMR pattern will have to go through the extractor spring channel. You will need to file down some of the bolt to prevent it from rubbing, you wont need to take much off depending on the length of the bolts you use, It took only a few passes of a hand file to achieve the clearance needed. Also, there's not enough material to achieve irons forward without potentially weakening the breach face If you're looking to get this done hit up my buddy Will at Mac Defense Industries in Woodstock GA, tell him Anthony sent you, if you have Instagram look him up at MacDefenseind. He also did the Stippling on the grip
  8. he announced on IG a while back that he will be shooting for Atlas Gunworks this year. But, he was shooting a X5 last yr.
  9. I’m gonna buy one regardless, I have a SIGness.
  10. Shooting Sports Innovations did my Legion grip module, 1 week turn around at the time and it was the first Legion grip module they did.
  11. blue for me, I make sure to clean the threads on the bolt, slide/plate with alcohol. I let it setup/dry for 4hrs minimum be for shooting. I also torque every 5-6k rounds, optic has never been loose on my primary X5 that is creeping up on 30k rounds.
  12. No failures as of yet, but I have changed guide rod springs twice in 28k rounds because they were noticeably shorter, due to constant cycling. Everything else I have changed was for peace of mind going into Hi-Nationals.
  13. I keep at least 2 of everything in my range bag, that includes 2 GG trigger kits (spring aren't available separately), guide rod springs, firing pin assemblies, 8 optic batteries (CR1632), magazine catch/release with springs, optic bolts with locktite, 1 spare optic (I have a backup gun as well), I also keep 4 brand new magazine springs & followers (Grams), take down lever, etc. I keep pretty much everything I need to rebuild the gun minus, slide and barrel. I'm extremely lazy when it comes to cleaning my guns, but I definitely try and keep as many spare parts as possible. My X5 had 6k rounds on it going into Hi-cap nationals this yr, I didn't bother to clean it, I just changed all my mag springs & followers, mag catch/release spring, optic battery, and guide rod spring. It did not skip a beat over 3 days and 2 that were a complete dust storm. I also re-torque my optic every 5k, 28k rounds in the last 18m and my original Romeo 1 is still going strong.
  14. So they are shipping it back directly to the customer and not using an FFL? Isn't that illegal?
  15. Are they requesting that you send the entire gun including the FCU, or do they just want the top end? Are you guys shipping it with or without you optics?
  16. Does anyone have a Springer mounting plate for RMR that’s not currently mounted to the gun? I really need the measurements of its thickness
  17. I was finally able to get my gun on the scale yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised, I have plenty of wiggle room. I am curious how much the Legion slide W/SRO will +/- this current setup. Here's my current setup until I get my Legion slide back. X5 slide W/Romeo 1 Tungsten guide rod/14lb spring Legion Grip module & stock FCU W/springer ext mag release Silicone carbide added. FWIW, I did remove some material from the inside of the magwell to open it up some, I didn't go crazy and I can get pics of it if someone wants to see it.
  18. If you have a chance look through a 2.5moa SRO on the brightest setting, you might be surprised, I know I was... If not, stick with the original plan.
  19. For competition I prefer silicone carbide, stippling for carry. Shooting sports innovations did the silicone carbide in less than a week. My X-Carry that I EDC is stippled by Mac Defense Industries out of Woodstock GA.
  20. I'd suggest looking through a 2.5moa first, like most Trijicon's the dot balloons on the glass and is actually bigger then 2.5 IMO. I bought a 2.5 instead of waiting on the 5moa. FWIW I'm also currently using a 6moa Romeo1.
  21. I was there for the Monsoon as well, but left after it wouldn't slow down and I had planned to take my daughters to the movies. Did you texture your Legion grip module at all? I did the silicone carbide because I have a bad case of sweaty palms, I hate all the grip paste that most people use (clean freak lol)
  22. oh damn, I forgot he mentioned the Legion. Well... the only other option would be to contact springer and find out the ETA of the new plate or send the Romeo3 back
