Hey All, So I picked up an X5 Legion to give carry optics. So far I have been pretty happy with it, and I love the weight of it, but I found the grip dug into the the base of my thumb, which drove me nuts. I realized that all of my favorite guns have wide grips with narrow beaver tails, Tanfo, CZ, 2011. I was afraid to start cutting on the fancy legion grip, so I used part of my $200 rebate to get a standard polymer X5 grip, to modify. The modification was a little rough, because I rushed a bit, but I think it feels 100 times better now. I also realized that Sig does offer a similar narrow beavertail grip the for the XCompact, but its grip diameter is smaller and it doesn't have the same magwell, which we need for competition. Don't even think it would work with the 5" barrel anyway, but I handled one at a local gun shop, and it similarly feels way better than the standard X grips. Question is, would this grip modification be legal for Carry Optics (or Production)? I want to be sure before modifying my actual X5 Legion grip in the same way. XCompact Grip:
I can say honestly I absolutely hated the P226, it and it's terrible double action trigger. It was a fitting pistol for SEALs( Army joke) That was until we recieved a P226 SAO Legion at the club. I am absolutely crazy about the gun. So much in fact it changed my search for a Max Michel .40 1911 to it. So what did Sig do right? First is the trigger, the slop common to the DA P226, is gone. In fact there is very little slack in the trigger at all. More or Most importantly it is Single Action. Also, out of the box it comes with Sig's flat trigger. Secondly as a lefty, I have always hated the ergonomic features on all P series pistols, but the ambidextrous features and locations are a nice change. Lastly, is the grip... the legions series have the best grip of any stock pistol. It also has a great look to it.
