I called Sig last week and asked about the release date for the P320 Target. I was told that they made some additional changes, and the expected release date will now be next July. The rep also informed me that it will be called the P320 X5, not the Target model.

I look forward to learning more about it.

I was hoping for a stainless frame, but was told the frame will be polymer. I know that Gray Guns developed the prototype frame for the Target model.

I believe it was Tyrell Humphries, gunsmith for GGI, who modified the grip module until the shop was happy with it. The grip angle was slightly changed, and the sides of the grip are now flatter. This will give more directional feedback to the shooter.

So, this is the "X5" they were talking about all along. Roll Eyes

I am still hoping the three rumoured X Fives happen as well.

Sig is delaying the rollout of the X5 for 9 months. I am sure they will have something we will not be disappointed in.

I sold my X5 Alround as I prefer the P320 trigger. I eagerly await the new model.

Realistically, the US made X5s were never coming out this year. If I had to guess, I'd say 2018. The P210 and P320X should make their debuts at SHOT and be released some time in 2017

It was Roy Nelson.

Does anyone make a stainless framed striker-fired pistol? I would think that going to a metal frame would make the gun prohibitively expensive, as the whole premise is to swap cheap, plastic frames to alter grip size and frame length. Going to metal would require re-engineering it to be as small as possible and able to accept grip panels to increase grip size. Although I suppose the panels could be more 1911-like at that point (i.e., simpler and less expensive than P-series panels).

I guess I'll have to wait and see if a P320 could be worthy of the X-Five nomenclature.

Now if it could somehow be a 10mm...



My other Sig is a Steyr...

^^^ EekEekEek !!!

My mind is going all different directions right now. What makes it a P320? What makes it an X5?

Is the FCU still interchangeable? Is it still striker fired? This will be interesting...

Not stainless, but the only metal frame striker fired pistol that comes to mind is the H&K P7




No, Daoism isn't a religion

Will we see this gun at the Shot Show in 2017?

Kahr does stainless. K & T series pistols, as well as the MK series. All are strikers.

I don't know about current production, but there are lots of old ones, e.g., the Browning Model 1900.

I have a .32 ACP pocket pistol made in France in the '30s that is striker fired.

Oh, Kahr. Aren't all the Kahr pistols, even the steel-framed ones, striker-fired?

Well a 320 X5 wasn't what I was anticipating, but long slide variants abound from most of their striker competition so I guess it shouldn't be a surprise that SIG wants in as well.

Adding to that, the Nambu pistol (14) is striker fired, as well.
