Obviously all of these weights are minus the steel magwell.

 

So what parts are going in to add the difference in weight between these different guns? A tungsten guide rod is only so much.... 

 

Are we sure these photos are with unloaded mags? With 23 rounds of 147gn bullets, mine comes in at 45.5oz - people would likely have to be swapping out the grip weight, guide rod and probably shoving other weights into the frame to get it that heavy.

That is the point.  :)

Looking again at the sear, I can see a very fine hair line at the base of the sear face where the 2 angles come together. I can’t catch it on camera with a cellphone but it looks like whatever implement they used to polish it just didnt quite reach 100% into the angle. Its like the finest of hair lines but with how sharp the strikers edge was it was enough to catch on it. 

 

Careful with this home gunsmithing, you should never attempt any modifications that the factory engineers didn't intend!

Ok, point made. 😉

Mind sharing the specifics of how you heavied up your X5 using internal parts? It may be in the last 50 pages of forum thread, but I searched through and did not see it. Thanks!

Like I said not modifying anything. Not doing anything beyond knocking off an edge that would eventually wear no less. Wouldnt recommend anyone tamper with engagement angles, removing enough material to reduce surface area of contact points or anything of the sort but polishing is pretty safe.

Got my trigger kit from Gray Guns

Install was simple

Went from 7.5 lbs to 3lbs- 3lbs. 4 ozs

3.2 avg of 5 pulls on Lyman gauge

I'm impressed, worth the money! IMO

Sweet, gonna install mine tonight.  Do you recall what size punch the trigger overtravel stop needed?  Loaned a buddy a couple punches and wont be able to get them back before I install tonight, just gonna grab one on the way home.

Think its a 1/16

a pointed one will also work the newer FCU's that one is staked. So just break it loose then it will drift out.

I did not restake mine

My X5 has a build date of late March so I guess it would be staked then?  So that's not a hollow roll pin right?  Would hate to drive a too small of a punch into it.  😁

I think if you weigh yours, you will find Sig declared weight is grossly exaggerated.  Alma posted a pic of his gun in stock configuration coming in at 25.5 oz i believe.  

 

 

I only have a bathroom scale for weighing so accuracy will not be exceptional, lol...

 

But it says my X5, with magazine and with Springer tungsten guide rod but without magwell is right at 2 pounds, sometimes 2.1. So probably a little over 2 pounds.

So maybe 33 oz?

 

My 5" M&P weighed in at around 25 oz. at the last equipment check (including empty magazine) as I recall. The X5 is noticeably heavier.

It's a solid pin

Just want to give you guys an update on my xfive. I’ve been shooting it mid May 2017 one of the first batch with the silver barrel.

 

regarding the barrel wear. I just lube the barrel with light grease and it looks like it solved that problem of rubbing in too much.

 

 

For the issue of not getting into battery/ barrel not locking up, if you do not pull the slide way back and having a strong spring, it won’t lock into place. I did try to shoot it a lot hoping it would breakin after 1000 rounds but it still hangs up sometimes using the stock recoil spring. 

 

Sent the pistol to GG and had the competition trigger job when it came back swapped the recoil spring to a 13lbs with a SS guide rod by springer. That fixed the going into battery problem. 

 

Sent my plastic grip to alma and picked the aggressive compound, installed the Romeo 1 and the rest is just clean and shoot wow trouble free on the optics as well the Romeo 1 still holds the zero from my first sight-in talk about set and forget.  plus the grips by alam cole are holding up real well! I’ve been shooting it every weekend. 

 

This must be my favorite pistol to shoot coz it gives me no grief. Always goes bang when I pull the trigger and never failed to finish a match!

 

Only new upgrade I did was picking up the GG fat guiderod when it came out. just had to get it to match the GG trigger work.

 

cheers!

Straight or curved trigger? Or does it matter?

Get the springer precision tungsten guide rod if you can. The additional weight compared to the stainless fat rod helps in keeping the muzzle flat during recoil. I used it with a 10# Wilson combat recoil spring along with my ~130pf reloads.
