P320 X5 Thread

Recommended Posts

Will do.  Thanks brother.  It would be a easy make.  What does chubby girls and heavy pistols have in common, both are wonderfully soft.

Do you guys think the regular P320 grip tape will fit the new X5 frame well?

No. Textured grip sections are recessed and very different in size and couture.

There is a very good chance that Springer Precision will have precut grip tape for the X grip soon.

I was also told there should be 2,500 ready to go when they release so shouldn't be a problem getting it production legal when it rolls out.

It's a good looking gun. I've really soured on sig with the issues I had dealing with them previously.

Should be similar to existing P320s but with a reprofiled trigger. There were apparently multiple reasons for this which included cost, schedule, maintaining compatibility across the P320 line, and IPSC Production legality. Grayguns does have a drop in trigger that has been released that acts similar to a Glock 3.5lb connector, taking about 2lb off of the pull. They have additional work that they are performing in house to fit a new sear and reduced power sear springs etc. 

Do you know if the GG drop in flat trigger is profile compatible with the X5? I mean will it be Prod legal when the X5 is?

That's the hope. Bruce Gray spoke with DNROI at shot and gave him samples of the current triggers. Bruce already got the not from him about the curved profile triggers while while they were at Production Nationals last year. I stressed to Bruce that something in writing will be required. There are a few other potential paths to assure the GGI triggers are production legal that could be used in the near future. I will try to come back and post here when I hear something definitive.

If I want to remove the X5 magwell, what magazine will I need to fit flush with the frame instead of the extended magazines that are included?

The current 17 round magazines will fit flush once the wings have been removed from the base pads or the base pads have been swapped out for an alternative style like the Springer Precision .25 or .375 pads. Around March SIG should also start selling 17 round magazines equipped with the base pads for the X-Carry and VTac; the ones without wings already that have a slightly longer front.

Any of you guys going to swap the factory recoil spring to a lighter spring?

I thought June was the timeframe for the Carry and VTAC models.

Not June. What I heard is a big push for the 5X. As long a nothing has changed I would expect it to be legal by Optics Nationals.

At Shot Sig said the first batch of the X5 will be at retailers by the end of February, beginning of March.

   My dealer listed some Sigs the other day on his web site and he called it Sig Thursday and when I noticed it, I just knew the X5 had come in.  No luck though.  I picked at him about it.

I spoke to someone at sig a few days ago and asked about the X5. He said it will probably be late spring or early summer when they start shipping them.

Hope that is not the case, already starting to sound like the Target.  I think with Phil involved, it should not be the case.  Phil and Kyle were shooters long before they signed on with Sig, and they are very aware as to what shooters want.  2500 pistols is small change to Sig, but the market really would react to the positive of such a fine pistol.

Noticed this today, and thought I'd share it. Thanks for all your posts and keeping us in the loop as much as you could. Sig should be thankful to have you as a wingman.
