So I just bought my SECOND P320 X5 Legion. I’m having a blast shooting the first one. I bought the GreyGuns Competition Trigger Kit for it and did the installation. I knew GG was one of the leaders and just pushed the ‘easy button’. With the popularity of the X5, I’m seeing now that there are more options than I knew. With just a little reading here, I’ve found “The Sig Armorer”, “Armory Craft” and of course Grey Guns. I was wondering how many more options are out there? What is the collective experience with the other kits and work? I’ll start - GreyGuns Competition Trigger Kit - Pros, Cons and Overall. Pros - The kit seams well made and was GENERALLY easy to install, more on that in the Con’s. You get a couple of sets of springs and the finish on the parts is good. It dropped the pull weight from about 3.5 pounds stock to about 2.6 pounds after installation. I measured multiple pulls with a Lyman digital Trigger Pull gauge. I’ve shot two matches with it since and it’s worked fine. Really limits over travel. Lighter, shorter, less build up (Stack-up) before the break. Reminds me of “rolling" a light revolver trigger. Con’s. - No instructions at all. They do use the disclaimer of use a “qualified Armorer” to install these parts. I’m a Glock LE Armorer and have 25 years of working on Glocks and 2011’s. Even an Armorer needs instructions. After watching all the videos I could find, the install was smooth except the trigger return spring. There’s got to be a better way than the ones I found. Maybe a tool? One video said right out to expect to bend the spring. Feel of the trigger is okay, it does stop the over-travel. At first the over-travel was limited the point the gun would not fire. I had to back out the adjustment screw a quarter turn. Feel overall is quite different than the stock trigger. Overall - It’s staying in the gun for now, but I’m still looking. I wish they told you how to use all the “extra” springs to get different results. I guess it’s up to me to experiment. The first experiment is going to be building a tool to install the Trigger return/triggerbar spring. Part of paying for the kit is expecting to get the “knowledge” needed to use it effectively, maybe that’s an unreasonable expectation on my part? I know when I buy 1911 parts there are no instructions. Glock kits always came with the info. So who else have ya’all used and what do you think ? Really interested in reviews of The SIg Armorer....
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:
Hi folks, I recently bought an X5 and love it. However, I may be in the minority here but I’m not crazy about the straight trigger. I’ve shot a 320 and really prefer the feel of the curved trigger. I bought the X5 for all the features it does have over the 320. I’m getting great results in Production, but I just prefer the curved trigger. I’ve sent GGI an email about it, waiting to hear back. Does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance
