Anybody own a Sig P320 X5?

Recommended Posts

I’ve been thinking of getting one but I see the current one is being discontinued for a newer milled slide that will take a DPP, RMR instead of just the Sig Romeo. Are the reflex sights being made not a generic style mount? Can anyone out there verify this? The newer model will end with R2 in the model number from what I have read on-line. The older model has dropped to around $650 on-line and from what I see the newer one will be at $800’s. I’m trying to decide if it’s worth it to pay for the newer model.....

I had one but traded it shortly after picking it up. From what I remember it only took the Romeo, and no not all reflex sights use the same spacing/location of their mounting  screws. 

There might be someone who makes a plate to mount other brand optics to the X5 though.

I suppose at that point I would lose co-witness.

The X-carry would be the choice if you are going to carry it at all. The X5 is a big gun. 

 

As far as co-witness goes I don't thing either  will, the rear sight is part of the plate that you take off to mount the optic...  I think, would need to research that one.

The notch in the back of the Romeo1 will cowitness with the front sight on the X series.

I read your original post as you not wanting to use a Romeo.

 No, not wanting to be stuck with it as an only choice and wondering if paying more for the new model was worth it. Why did you dump your X5 so fast?

Too big for my hands, just didn't feel right. For me there are better options in the polymer "target/competition category, mainly the Walther Q5 Match. Better ergos, better trigger - IMO

Dry fired the X-Carry today at a LGS. Ordered tonight, fantastic trigger.

You should be happy with that. I had the grip module already so I got the X-Carry upper from Sig before the guns dropped to $580. The upshot is I save a couple hundred and I love the idea of the new X-Compact so I'm going to pick one of those up.

Your timing is good, Sig has a great sale on the current Romeo1 @ $199. You should jump on that before they sellout. They had been selling out in hours but its still live as of the time of this post. Its a pretty decent RDS. The new versions will have a more durable top cover and extended batter life, but will be much more.

      I’m considering one. But, they seem to be scarce in the Nashville area. Are you happy with yours?

      I'm 18 and a new gun owner. As of now I have a pretty basic collection. One AR, one 870, a few .22s, the works. However, the obvious hurdle to owning a handgun is the federal restriction on purchasing a handgun from a licensed firearms dealer when you're under the age of 21. Buying a handgun from a private seller, however, is totally legal.
       Sadly, that limits my options dramatically. I can't have a gun from a listing shipped to me since that would require an ffl transfer, so I am limited to sellers in my area. Even then, most of the listings I've seen in my area explicitly demand a HCP, which, being under 21, I can not obtain. 
       I'm aware for many people this is to protect themselves in the event the buyer is a criminal, but this comes off as really hostile to any 18-20 year olds who want to exercise their gun rights. If I can buy an AR easily I fail to see why it should be so difficult for me.

      Hi all,
      I just got into handguns after moving away from a state that made them impossible to get.
      Are there any tips and tricks to get less expensive 9mm ammo for target practice purposes? I currently get them at Academy and its about .175 per shot. At the range I typically go through 150-200 rounds which starts to get pricey!
      Thanks in advance for the advice.
