  1. I’m concerned about this too. I got mine back from Robert at SA and my trigger is perfect! I don’t want them touching it. I don’t even want them to look at it. Avert your eyes!
  2. I ran cat crap. It’s useless! Maybe 10% less residue. Don't waste your money.
  3. Just received my Legion back from Robert at SA. While the original trigger was satisfactory (especially for a shooter new to UsPSA) It’s significantly better now. Ill put a ton of rounds through it tomorrow and circle back around for some commentary. Based on nothing more than dryfire, I’m anticipating nothing but sexy.
  4. Bacon Cheeseburgers and deciding to try and do this in my 50’s is costing me way more time than the beard!
  5. It was just a drill so I backed up the start position because I’m an old dude that probably hasn’t actually attempted to run in about 30 years. Im trying to get some ankle mobility going.
  6. Robert’s got my x5 Legion right now. I was the one that originally made the comment based on my conversation with him. In the end, we wasn’t comfortable that his Tig skills were at a capable level to handle it. I did post a correction/ retraction.
  7. I think it’s personal choice. When I was deciding on a back up comp gun, I took a look at a used x-5 with the thought of adding the TXG grip, versus a second x5 Legion. With regard to the original x5, what you don’t get versus an x5 Legion is the new trigger group/ FCU. Comparing apples to apples, if you hand Bruce an x5 and an x5 Legion, by virtue of design, Bruce (or in my case, Robert at SA) can produce a better feeling trigger for the Legion. My decision was that I wanted the best comp trigger I could get my hands on for this platform. So I am willing to tolerate the gas residue at least for now. If you’re satisfied with the x5 trigger work you have now, by all means grab the module and rock. If otoh, you want an even better trigger, grab an x5 Legion and retain your current x5 as a back up. Its really all personal choice.
  8. Great response! Yes, I’m dry firing too. Is this like a sickness?
  9. I’m a new guy. I went to my home range to do some basic stuff ie Bill Drills etc. They had all the stages set up for an IDPA match scheduled for today. I didn’t want to alter any of the stages so I just picked part of stage to run, mostly because I’m an old guy trying to learn to move my carcass. Between the port being intentionally set to cause hate and discontent, coupled with the small pins at the end, it gave me absolute fits. To make it worse, I was shooting my backup gun since my x5 Legion is off being massaged. It was a fun but humbling day. The more I try to improve the more I realize just how much work it will take to try and learn to be competent in this sport.
  10. Thankfully this wasn’t a match but running drills yesterday. I managed to whittle 3 full seconds off the drill. And I was sure I was going to best my time again. Wait.....no wait. I think I need that. (Sorry for the potty mouth)
  11. The slide cut is a non-issue for me as I run DPP’s on everything. The LCI definitely has to be dealt with (at least to me) as I can’t imagine with as many rounds as we shoot in this sport that it won’t accelerate deterioration of optic clarity. Since youve dealt with the horrific stock stock trigger on the original x5 (reminded me of the double action pull on my dads Smith and Wesson model 29 ), then adding the txg grip module should have you dialed. You may come in just slightly over legal weight with the tungsten guide rod if you’re running tti +5’s. It will be close but you may sneak by. And that should give you a pretty sweet ride.
  12. Oustanding! I’ll be all over Scott like hair on a gorilla!
  13. Earlier in a post I mentioned that Robert (SA) thought he could resolve the LCI issue. He called me yesterday and said he just doesn't feel his skillset is at a level to Tig the barrel and get it perfect. I respect any man that knows his limitations and thanked him for the honest assessment. So, we are back to Barsto barrel and fitting if I want this smoke wagon to calm down!
  14. I suspect that’s exactly what he’s going to do. Ill post up the second I have it back.
