P320x5 or....

Recommended Posts

Looks nice but difficult to clear stovepipes.  Brass clearing ok?  (Yes I know Max uses one.)

 

no obvious changes to the X5 in the catalog but there is a new part number, so something’s different.  Perhaps the rumored compatibility with Leupold optic.  That implies a slightly longer millout for the optic and therefore slightly longer plate.  If I recall correctly it was possible to get a Leupold on the previous X5 by either milling a couple of mm on the muzzle end of the cutout, or modifying the leading edge of the optic.  Holes supposedly match up ok.

I have not shot the Canik, however, I believe my insight on the XFive will be helpful. 

First, my personal experience with the current XFIVE:

- It is MUCH more impressive in live fire than dry fire. 

- The Gray Guns Competition Kit is worth every penny. It makes the pull notably lighter. So far, I have been able to obtain pulls at the following weights by varying springs: 2.0 lbs, 2 lb 5 oz and 2 lb 7 oz.  At 2 lbs the break was not crisp enough for me. I went back to an old, strong trigger bar spring to get the 2 lb 7 oz break that is crisp enough for me. I might be able to put the SIG sear springs back in and go back to a lighter trigger bar spring to get a crisp break with a lighter pull, but I have not yet tried that. 

- My friends have watched me shoot my CZ SP-01 and my XFive in at least 2 matches and they say I am faster with my XFive and I know I am just as accurate with it. 

Second, with regard to the current XFive vs. the new XFull coming out: I would get the current XFive and not the XFull because you get the magwell, grip weight and 4x21 round mags with the XFive. Buying all of those to put in a XFull is going to cost way more than the a XFive costs, IF you can get the weight and magwell. I shoot SSP and Production so it was a piece of cake to remove the magwell.  I do not need to remove the weight (which is a pain) and I bought four new style 17 round mags for $100 shipped. I could not buy any 21 round mags for $25 anywhere. 

Hipe that helps.

Removing the weight is pretty easy- I just strip the FCU out of the frame and slap the module onto my reloading bench, magwell side up.  Works perfectly on all four of my X-Five grip modules.

Good Afternoon All!

 

Well I just went ahead and bought the current XFive. I live in Upstate NY, so I'm limited to 10-round mags.

Agreed, I just don’t want to break the grip/frame doing it.  Hit it hard enough but not too hard...

I bought the SIG and since your looking to use an RMR it will be nice, however, do not try and replace the rear iron sight, you can not. SIG does not allow you to use any other sight but what they have provided. A friends son shoots the Canik  and loves it for the price point!

Well, exactly.  You could use a hard rubber pad to help mitigate that possibility, or just moderate taps, repeatedly.
