    Which Romeo1 for X5?

    the 6 MOA is so bright that it leaves a spot on my eye at full brightness. I typically have to use it 2-3 settings down. Its easily 50% brighter than a DPP

    OAL issue

    I’ll have to work up a shorter load. For now, I have 5-6k of my 1.135 oal to use up.

    OAL issue

    The barrel shoots perfectly in one gun, and has 7” groups in another gun. Something off with how it locks up. I asked the initial question last night when I was still speculating what the problem was.

    OAL issue

    The rounds still didn’t shoot accurately in that barrel.

    TTI +2 Extension fitting?

    ‘It’s not uncommon for a couple of the local matches I attend to have several 40-50+ round stages.

    OAL issue

    I made up some 1.120 ammo and that made no difference. I’ve come to find that it’s something in the gun itself. I switched barrels with my x5 that was running good, and the problem went away. When I put the barrel from the good x5 into the problem gun, I had the same blown out groups. I spoke with he manufacturer, and they really had no ideas on what else to check. I’ll probably end up sending the complete gun into them to check out.

    TTI +2 Extension fitting?

    If I don’t use a grams, I have to use much more force when inserting the mag. In my experience there is much more give when using the grams.

    TTI +2 Extension fitting?

    Ya, but much less chance of having an incident during a reload if you use a grams.

    I tried that today, made no difference.

    OAL issue

    I recently purchased an aftermarket barrel for my P320 x5. I sent the manufacturer a dummy round to that they could Ream the chamber to fit my ammo. This is my carry optics gun and when I went to zero it in, I was getting a 6-7” group at 15 yards from a rest. I put the OEM barrel back in, and the group size went back to 1-2”. Speaking to the manufacturer, they had me check the fit, and everything looked good. However one thing I did notice is, they must have reamed it slightly too short. My ammo ranges from 1.130-1.135 and the 1.135 rounds don’t pass the plunk test. The ammo is slightly too long, maybe .002-.003, could this be the cause of the blown out groups? I’ll add that I have another barrel from the same manufacturer on my 2nd x5, and it groups beautifully with the same ammo.

    silicon/carbide, aluminum oxide

    Since I first tried this in the middle of last summer, I've since done all my guns. Id never go back to having to mess with the stick on grips. I prefer the 36 grit, doesn't get gummed up with dirt and skin as easily.

    Romeo 1 6 MOA

    So. On my second trip to the range and about 600 rounds on the Romeo1, now it won’t hold zero. Started noticing that that I was missing small pieces of steel, so I checked the zero and it was off about 2” at 10 yards. I re zero’d And a couple hundred rounds later it was 3” low at 10 yards. I had heard this was an issue with the 3 moa version. Did I just get a bad one? Or?

    Holosun HS510C

    I find the green easier to pick up. But in the end its personal preference.
