Sig Sauer P320 X5 Legion

My copy gained nearly another ounce when an optic was installed. Legion handguns are fully customized and designed, incorporating high-end, precise parts with input from some of the most elite professionals around the world. In fact, I would submit that the Legion X-Five is actually cheaper than than the non-Legion X-Five. I am thinking about buying a new range toy and the new Legion 320 X-Five looks tempting. The on;y upgrade the Legion X-Five truly needs to be competition ready is the grip texture, which is essentially the same as the non-Legion.

The Is Over for the P320 X

p320 x5 legion review

Having been an X-Five shooter since before the gun was released to the public, I was more than anxious to see not only how the Legion X-Five performed on the range, but also to compare it to the non-Legion X-Five — of which I have two. It went thru extensive testing and proved to be the best. Range Time Having ample time on the range with the X5 Legion proved this gun lives up to the expectations that come with the Legion moniker. However, I've never liked the adapter plates, esp. The reasoning behind this comes down to simply physics: the mechanical advantage provided by metal framed guns provides greater recoil mitigation. Magwell: Often, magwells are obnoxious.

Sig P320 X

Another highlight is the grip itself. Trigger pull on my sample was five pounds exactly. Shooting reloads may void any warranty on your firearm. Tungsten Infused Polymer: Huge huge huge kudos to Sig for thinking outside the box on his one! Yes, some optics have options for a backup rear sight, but this once again paints you into a corner. Then I used three 5 shot groups at 7 yards with support. The barrel does not feature the same locking block profile as a standard P320 barrel, and it's the tightest fitted of any pistol barrel I've seen outside a custom 1911. The original full-size P320 has a 4.

[BREAKING] Sig p320 X

As for ammo, I didn't notice much difference between recoil from the 115 to the 147gr bullets and both were very soft shooting. I think It should have come with larger capacity magazines for range or competition shooting. Both versions of the X-Five also had the same Springer Precision tungsten guide rod, and 13lb recoil spring. The X-Five Legion comes with a nice set of Dawson Precision adjustable sights — a green fiber front sight is mounted, and spare light tubes in green and red are provided. However, like my other pistols I just learned to press through it and focus on front sight. Could the trigger itself do that seems unlikely? The point is membership definitely has its privileges.

Sig P320 X

Every new gun evaluation always seems to wind up focusing on one key element of the firearm. To test this for myself, I took my non-Legion and my Legion X-Five out to the range to shoot some drills. The first and most obvious difference in the Legion X-Five from previous versions is the color. I had zero feed issues and zero malfunctions. The gun ran and without any issues.

[BREAKING] Sig p320 X

I think Sig loosened up the tolerances on the new batch of X5s. All pistols handicap the shooter in some way, and the trick is to find the pistol that handicaps you least. The old 17 round mags will not work if you take off the magwell. Slide Lightening Cuts: These make the slide lighter and faster. There are lightening cutouts in the top of the slide to reduce felt recoil which helps you stay on target. It means less felt recoil and less muzzle rise. The visible changes that make a Legion a Legion may be few, but the shooter can feel the differences it makes to performance.

In fact, several of people have questioned me on my choice to shoot an X-Five in competiton. The slide is actually stainless steel with a Nitron coating. But my X5 Legion is plenty accurate for me, but then again I am only shooting up to 50ft. The gun feels amazing, i have a black one its amazing. The other major difference between the X5 and stock P320s is the reach to the trigger. How does it compare to my other two X5s? The standard P320 has a nearly vertical grip angle, and while it works, it isn't ideal. Since the X5 Legion is like a regular 320 it is interchangeable.

Review: SIG Sauer P320 X

Looks like Sig's answer to the Q5 Match Steel Frame. Handling the gun, the very first thing I noticed was its weight. Now for anyone looking at buying the X5, sure absolutely get the Legion version, the only downside is 17 round mags instead of the 21's. There are few companies that offer holsters for the P320-X5. Second, a lighter recoil spring, somewhere around 13 pounds, will reduce muzzle bounces.
