  1. Anybody know who makes custom or oversize big & tall belts ? All of the ones I see online max out at 52" which isn't quite enough ... I know Hanks Belts makes anything you want, but they aren't inner / outer belt setups. Any suggestions?
  2. Powder technologies are another area that will be affecting the sport (and military applications)... Also having been in the sport years ago, out of it, and back on the periphery now a lot of "innovation" is marketing -- guns are too durable to wear out in 3yrs, but if the latest port design, in conjunction with grip fad can drive sales, then manufacturers will take advantage of that and sell new product.

    P320 X5 Thread

    Hadn't seen it covered, but at the NRA Annual Meeting my brother took this shot. They say the new x5 will not be available in black, just the new color scheme. It does still have the lightening cuts on the top.
  4. This 45 was started when I was in high school in the late 80s and represents a blend of 1987-1994 or so tech, and has basically sat in my safe since then, not fully finished (barrel lockup needs a little tweaking) - plan on having that addressed in the coming weeks. Caspian frame, Wilson barrel, Clark comp, military slide (aftermarket slides weren't as plentiful back then), Videki trigger, S&A magwell. It ended up being a mix of Lance Burrows and Alan Tillman who did the work (though I did the trigger work and beavertail). I ended up picking up a Grieder Custom Series 70 a year or so after I started this project, which is part of the reason that it got shelved (Grieder was fun to shoot, and very accurate - it was more of a bowling pin gun though - no comp, just a muzzle weight, coned barrel, stippled frame, and flared magwell) ... When I finally got into shooting competitively 38 Super was the go to for the big boys (along with Tasco dots), and I opted to stay in Limited (with a Springfield Armory 1911, and later STI 2011 when they first came out).
  5. Ok... Scratch that one from the list. Thanks.
  6. Doesn't necessarily have to be $8 a box, hell I would go with $11-13... This is for my almost 14yr old son to use in practice and when competing in matches (shooting against a lot of guys who are using creampuff 38 special loads) ... In addition to centerfire pistol he also shoots Olympic style smallbore, so you can imagine my monthly outlay on ammo is pretty high... I have all of the equipment to reload, but it is on loan to somebody else, as I really don't have the space to dedicate a full table just to . reloading. I did order 1000rds of Federal Ultra Target and Range - hopefully it is a little softer... Been using Winchester Forged, Federal Bulk, and Magtech till now.
  7. Local club hosts a PPC style match, with no real power factor on targets that range from 7yds to 50yds .. Due to having no space to reload (live in an apartment) I am looking for an affordable off the shelf ammo to use for these matches in a P320 X5 (with Springer rod, so I can adjust the spring as needed).. What has a light recoil pulse, relatively accurate, and yet still affordable (i.e. not Precision Delta or Atlanta @ $25+ a box of 50)? Thanks.

    P320 X5 Thread

    A link would be helpful, if you wish to relink to your posts somewhere else.
  9. Yeah... one of the reasons we never rolled out that particular mod.
  10. Have you thought of doing some banners etc. instead of generating revenue from auto-linking... that is the way we took sturmgewehr.com and it was received positively. Either way, thank you for your site and support of the community.

    P320 X5 Thread

    Could the hardness of Tungsten vs regular hardened steel be part of the issue (i.e. if rubbing, something has to give, and tungsten is less likely to be that something).

    P320 X5 Thread

    For those who have been wanting to get a GrayGuns P320 X5 trigger upgrade, they sent out an email this evening stating that they are back in stock... Based on other posts I have seen, this means they will probably only be available for a few days.
  13. This thread reminded me that my brother had one in our old competition gear somewhere.... He dug it out, and it seems to have weathered the same way as Kixx's... Guess it will get a new lease on life as I teach my son how to shoot the sport.

    P320x5 or....

    I guess the question is whether the new version will be $150-250 better than the current one at close-out... Hopefully SHOT show will tell. BTW I bought one for my 13yr old son, and so far he really likes it... Should be breaking him in on matches, in the coming months.
