Sig Sauer P320 X5 Legion is the newest member of the Legion family and it well deserves it place.
From design to function the X5 brings to the table everything we have come to expect from Legion series. Legion Above The Law - The X5 Legion isn't just another new gun. SIG Sauer took note of how often gun owners customize its guns and wanted to offer them the same experience, except this time out of the box and ready to go thusly, the SIG Legion series was born.
Legion handguns are fully customized and designed, incorporating high end, precise parts with input from some of the most elite professionals around the world. They meet and exceed the expectations of the elite. Upon purchasing a handgun from the Legion series, you not only own a top of the line precision firearm, but you're now a member of an exclusive community. A community that SIG Sauer describes as a brotherhood of like-minded people who push themselves and their gear to the limits. For a handgun to become inducted into the Legion series it must be elite, the best of the best and the SIG P320 X5 Legion more than exceeds that criteria. The signature Legion Gray color and clean lines of the X5 Legion are most certainly eye catching, but the lightning cuts along the top of the slide really caught attention.
Handling the gun, the very first thing we noticed was its weight. The X5 Legion has a little bit of heft to it and you immediately notice this is very different than the polymer guns. The X5 is made using tungsten. This is absolutely fascinating. The frame is comprised of a heavy XGrip module that is TXG Tungsten infused. Not only does this allow for a beautiful and smooth texture, but the small amount of heft aids in managing recoil. The recoil is very minimal with the X5.
On the range with the X5 Legion proved this gun lives up to the expectations that come with the Legion. The pistol has very minimal recoil, allowing to have very consistent groups, more control and repeated accuracy. The prominent and easily accessible magazine release coupled with the flared competition magwell make reloads quick, easy and exceptionally smooth. The lightened, skeletonized flat trigger lends a smooth, crisp pull with a very short reset allowing for faster follow-up shots. The Dawson Precision fiber optic front and adjustable rear sights are definitely the best choice.
In final thoughts the SIG P320 X5 Legion far exceeded any expectations I had. Not only is this gun beautiful, it's powerful as well. SIG Sauer has come out with an amazing new gun to proudly add to its exclusive Legion lineup. This isn't a gun you simply just shoot, it's one you experience.
