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.

Checked and Springer Precision does make and adapter plate, $35 

 

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 saw someone mention an 80% revolver on another forum. Anyone ever heard of something that resembles This? Of course they had no links or detailed info on it.

      This is pretty cool. I don’t shoot competitively anymore, so I can’t justify the cost of one of these, but to me they are an excellent example of the shift in gun making.
      There is very little old school conventional “Gunsmithing” going on at Ed Brown. But there is a lot of high performance, high accuracy machining by quality Machinists, Programmers, and QA inspectors.
      I’ve spent my life in manufacturing. I’ve heard it all like “Things aren’t made as good as in the old days”, something must be right because “It is CNC machined” or something is special because it was “Designed in CAD”. I just smile when I see these kinds of statements.
      Truth is, we have far surpassed any that could be done quality wise in “the old days”. Unless someone is doing “One off” protype work or working in their garage; most everything is “CNC Machined”. And everything is “Designed in CAD”.
      Does that mean everything today is better than it was in the past? Absolutely not. These technologies still rely on the Machinists and the programmers (many times the same person) using them. CNC machines can make junk, and they can make it fast. These CNC machines only do what they programmer tells them to do. If he programs the part wrong; the machine will make it wrong. CNC machines are high drama. They require Machinists and Programmers that are on top of every little detail, every single minute. They require inspectors that are checking all critical dimensions, all the time.
      If you have high accuracy, quality machines, and you have the best Machinists and Programmers. You can make extremely accurate parts that don’t require any hand fitting; they fit together to extremely tight tolerances and work every time. In 1992 Ed Brown quit gunsmithing and went strictly design and manufacture. He retired at 65 and turned the business over to his family. With what he put in place; it can carry on.
      So, what does this mean to you? Well, it means you can buy a high-quality competition for gun for $2K instead of 10K. It also means if you need a replacement part, it can be shipped to you and dropped in without requiring a gunsmith.
      Sorry for the trip down memory lane, this isn't something new, but when I saw this; I saw a good example of a positive change with people involved that are dedicated to quality. I don’t own one of these guns, but I’d sure like to; I bet they are really something.
      Why doesn’t Smith & Wesson or Glock or anyone else do this? Because then they can’t sell their guns for $300-$400. But change is happening on a daily basis; someday they will.

      Have lifetime CHL but will be moving to another state for a lengthy period of time. Do I need to maintain residence in TN for the permit to remain valid? Or is it still good when I come back (possibly years)?
      thank you
