I've swapped the small grip module for an older model with less of a beavertail, smaller slide stop, Obsidian Arms aluminium floor plates and X-ray night sights. I'm still on the fence about it, but I've been carrying it for a few months now. I need to hurry up and get some Grizzle leather for it, that way I wont part with it.

Until recently I haven't been much one for Desert Sand or Tan or Bronze or whatever it may be called. However, I've grown to like the Bronze on the VTAC. I have a 1911 on layaway that has a bronze frame which I like and I have to admit, I like the Commemorative color scheme.
I ordered a P320 in .357sig through my FFL. They didn't have an X-Carry and I also wanted .357sig. Once it arrived, I changed out the grip module for the X-Carry module. I also had a GGI PELT2 straight face trigger installed and changed the Night Sights out for XRay3 sights which I like.
I'm very satisfied with the result and am really looking forward to take it to the range. I enjoyed shooting it before the changes, and am expecting it to only have gotten better.
I had trouble with the magazines as the ones that came with the gun had the old style base plate with the round retainer and are not compatible with the grip module even though SIG lists the module for .357sig/.40S&W and 9mm.
So, I bought some retainer plates from Obsidian Arms and some aluminum floor plates from GGI and the modification worked well.
Since then I found two factory magazines at my FFL that have the new floor plate and are compatible. I didn't think such a thing existed, no one seemed to have them, but I found these two. I still like the Obsidian/GGI modification though even if it increases the cost of the magazines significantly.
