Sig 320 x5 question

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has changed their recoil spring that’s running 147gr and what weight recoil spring you swapped out to. 8808a2fc44ad4daf947be86ed1402f70.jpg

14lbs seems to be what most are saying on the sight form. There's a 46 page thread about all the ins and outs of the x5

The SIG forum above has threads on this including my current one. I am using an 11lb one now and tried a 13lb as well.

Thank you. I was going to order a 10 and 11 but I can’t find a black guiderod.

I’m currently using a 10# Wilson Combat recoil spring on my X5. Shoots flat and no muzzle flip.

What is your round of choice?

124 Gr FMJ Truncated cone flat point with 4.1 Gr Winchester 231. Same reloads I shoot with my Shadow 2 and TSO.

Well that's not much help haha. I don't reload yet, stuck with factory brass.

I shoot 124g or 147g Speer Lawman or Blazer Brass, using a 14lb ISMI 1911 Government recoil spring, as suggested by members of the forum.  I'm happy with it.

I have been using a 14. I tried a 12 and the gun wouldn't cycle reliably. I use 147 grain bullets loaded to 133 PF.

I tried 11-14 lb ISMI springs with 124 grain MagTech and 147 grain Speer Lawman.  After testing 300 rounds of the MagTech and 100 rounds of the Speer, I found that the factory recoil assembly actually got me back on target fastest. 

 

It should be noted that my testing was with open sights.  Using a red dot and depending on your particular ammo, you may find that a lighter spring works better for you.

I'm using a 10 lbs spring with my 128-129 PF 147g ammo. I tried a 10, 12, and 14 and settled on the 10 but I didn't do much scientific studying.

 

No optic on my gun.
