  1. I'm hoping it's a break in thing, but I've heard various thoughts on whether guns really need broken in. I do actually have some of that ammo, so I'll run it all through the next time I'm at the range
  2. Yeah, I've actually only run the 12lb spring. I switched it out before I shot it
  3. I shot 300 rounds through my brand new X5 legion the other day and had 3 rounds not eject. I'm new to the Sig platform, so I'm not really sure how to go about correcting this. The brass isn't moving at all. It stays it the chamber and the slide returns to battery. Any thoughts?
  4. Ooooh, thanks, I never even thought to look there. February 13, 2020
  5. I have a CK beavertail grip plug that I like a lot. My grip is higher on that gun than any of the others, and I don't have to deal with that high grip not engaging the grip safety (small hand problems)
  6. Which basepads will give the most capacity to the standard 17 round magazines that come with the P320 X5 legion that will still be CO legal? I know I can buy the TTI +2 and a 21 round mag to get the most capacity, but it seems like a waste not to use the 17 round ones at all if they can get close to that with just a basepad.
  7. A striker fired trigger is never going to compare to a hammer fired trigger. The factory legion trigger is very good for a striker fired gun, but expecting it to feel like a custom 2011 is just setting yourself up for disappointment. I shot a CZ and a legion side by side. The CZ trigger was obviously better, but overall, I liked the way the legion felt in my hand. I could shoot it better because it fit me better. Obviously, that's going to be different for other people
  8. I can't speak to when this was manufactured since I purchased it second-hand, but it arrived today and has all these holes. So... I'm guessing they are now compatible with more stuff?
  9. Interesting. Still crossing my fingers, as it hasn't arrived yet!
  10. Most people seem to say a standard length 1911 spring works perfectly well and not to worry about the extra length. I'm curious as well if anyone is running anything lighter than 12 with an otherwise factory set-up...
  11. I'm hearing the adapter plates can cause issues with the sights maintaining zero, since it raises them. Anyone know anything about this? Is there an actual disadvantage to using an adapter plate other than having to buy another piece?
  12. I ended up finding a DPP used locally for a decent price. I'm hopeful it will meet my needs. I'm very excited for the gun to get here so I can try it out!
  13. This sounds like a great idea for someone on a budget who still wants to be competitive. I'm not looking to seriously compete yet, so I'd rather start with the cheaper option and upgrade if I decide to move out of limited
  14. That's fair. The other person was talking about a totally different model, so it's good to know they're different!
  15. Yeah, 6-800 rounds is so low for it to break. That's my concern. The few people I know running slide mounted holosuns don't shoot much. A 500 round practice session is pretty standard for me. And... I'm not set up to reload 9 yet, so whatever I get is going to have to deal with a higher power factor than most people shoot in USPSA
  16. This is interesting. I bought it BNIB from a forum, so I don't know when it was manufactured. I don't have it yet. Would that mean it would need the mounting plate for a DPP or Romeo1Pro then?
  17. Thanks for the clarification! I didn't realize there was a difference in the mounts between the regular and the Pro! I'm hearing good things about the vortex venom warranty. Reliability is my main concern
  18. I just bought a Sig P320 X5 Legion for CO, but it's coming with iron sights. I stupidly thought adding an optic would be fairly straight forward... There's almost too much information available, so I'm hoping someone can simplify it. I'm looking to spend no more than $300. My impression is that if I don't want to buy an adapter plate, I can get a Romeo1 or a DPP. However, the DPP is more expensive and is only 2.5 MOA. I shoot USPSA, so I need it to work in the sun. What actually goes together of the others? I've considered a Burris FastFire 3 and a Holosun 510C based on recommendations, but I can't figure out how to mount either of them.
  19. I run an extra-wide Limcat safety on my 2011 in limited, and I love it the extra shelf for my thumb. I'm trying to figure out if it would still be legal to run in SS on a 1911 and if it would fit in the box? Anyone have any experience running any of the larger safeties on 1911s? I'd prefer to do an ambi, but I might only have room for a single side...
  20. Anybody have any experience running 220 gr bullets out of a standard 5" 1911 or 2011? I usually use 180s, since they let me switch back and forth between SS and limited pretty easily, but I really prefer the 200s out of my 1911. Since I'm switching exclusively to SS leading up to nats, I figured it was worth resetting my press for 200s and knocking out a bunch. However, when I went to order some, I notice that 220s are also an option, and now I'm intrigued... Especially since the 220s are available as flat points and the 200s are only round nose. I figure there's a reason that everyone shoots in the 165-200 range though... Just wondering what the reasoning is, or what type of shooting the 220s might be targeted at?
  21. I did a silicone carbide grip on a Glock once. I wasn't impressed. Might not have been coarse enough though
  22. I'm right handed and very cross-eye dominant. I just don't see well out of my right eye. Occluding the left eye is just going to make it impossible to see anything, and shooting left handed would be a joke. I honestly don't notice it mattering... About the only time it comes up is when deciding which direction to shoot an array, because I prefer to shoot right to left while my fellow right eye dominant shooters generally prefer left to right. But that's only if you have a stage where entries and exits aren't more important in deciding the shooting order of the targets...
  23. The FW decapping die is amazing. I was crushing a ton of brass by not getting it perfectly aligned in station 1, and this die totally eliminated that. I highly recommend it
  24. Right? I would definitely be in the market for that, especially in aluminum if they could keep the weight legal
