Excessive FCU to slide clearance? 320X5 Legion. Login/Join

Am wondering if I have excessive slide clearance. Am seeing the slide move while pulling the trigger slowly. It about .026" up and down movement. Very noticeable when shooting off sand bags with the optic sight. It's a new pistol with very low round count. I have 4 Sig 1911 pistols and not one complaint. Read so much positive about the 320X5 Legion that I bought one only to be very disappointed with performance, Trigger reset is excessive IMO compared to the 1911's Thanks.

P320 vs. 1911 is not a fair comparison-apples to oranges.

What effect on precision does the slide movement have? What results are you getting?

If the trigger reset is important enough to you, perhaps an aftermarket offering like the one by Grayguns would improve it. I haven’t researched any of the aftermarket offerings myself, but I seem to recall that one or more claim to reduce the reset distance.

You haven't mentioned how it has performed...how are you disappointed?
Will it not group?

It is meant to compete with other polymer framed guns, why would you compare it's reset to a 1911?
The FCU isn't any different than any other 320. What you're buy when you get the Legion is the different frame

Frame to slide "tightness" has little to do with accuracy in a polymer framed pistol...doesn't have much to do with it in a metal framed pistol either

That's inherent to striker fires pistols, and all the P320's do it.

The issue is most likely the technique you are using for the trigger press. Every trigger system requires slightly different techniques.

I shoot 1911, P320, Glock and Sig DA/SA. I don't use the same trigger press technique on all four platforms. You have to understand the trigger and use the technique that IT WANTS...not the technique YOU WANT to use. It's that simple.

I taught handgun courses at our LGC for about 25 years. Due to medical issues, I don't teach anymore. I've seen this repeatedly in our courses over the years. Experienced shooter has used platform A, then buys gun with platform B. What's wrong with the gun? Nothing...you have to adapt the trigger press to the new platform.

Re reset length. Makes no difference in accuracy. Slight improvement in splits for a good shooter using lower recoiling calibers/loads. In my Sig DA/SA .40's, I can't see a whits worth of difference between the SRT and non-SRT pistols. Technique is more important. As I'm strictly a defensive shooter, competitive shooters may not agree.

It doesn't matter how you press the trigger. Hold the pistol in a vice and press the trigger, and the result is the same. The slide does move, and the front sight will appear to drop as the striker is released.
