I review the Sig 320 RX and Sig 320 X-Five new guns. Spoiler alert: I liked them.
I start with a quick history of the guns. Then jump into my first thoughts on the original 320 when it came out.
Then I talk about the 320 RX in great detail. This was a spectacular gun and if you are thinking about getting one, listen to the podcast to confirm you decision to buy one.
Last I discuss the 320 X-Five. I didn’t get to shoot this one as much as the RX, but had a good feel for it. It feels like a gun should. The balance and recoil is right and it points like a 1911. What more could you want?
In the end, I’m always looking for a better mouse trap, and the Sigs may need to replace my current carry Smith & Wesson M&P guns. I’m not sure yet.

A little Background
- From the P250
- Introduced at SHOT 2014
- Wasn’t exciting
- Looked like a revamped P250
- Done before by Kel-Tec and Styer
- The HK VP series outshined it at the time
- Sold some quietly, but not much
- Won the military contract, Now everyone wants one
- Sig had the X-Five and RX model coming out before the military contract was awarded
- It hit perfect for them and now the gun is really hot
Like the 250
- Super Accurate
- Nice DOA trigger
- Pointed like a gun should
- Modularity was cool but didn’t care that much
- Almost bought one more then once and should have
- Shot some and liked them more then the VP series of guns
- Didn’t get popular so there wasn’t a lot of holsters out there for them
- After announcement Sig went full in on them
- Same accuracy as the 250
- Everyone complains about the high bore access and recoil management
- I feel the difference shooting one but not a real problem
- Finish and fit
- Feel in the hand
- Not So much
- High bore access means it needs to be shot a little different
- Has the Romeo 1 reflex sight on it installed at the factory
- About the Romeo 1
- Loved it
- Bright indoors
- Aligned perfectly no searching for it
- Auto on and off with movement
- Top Loading Battery
- Weight is down to 0.8 oz (RMR is 1.2 oz)
- Different batter then others
- Big Buttons can sometimes be activated when you don’t want them to be
- Accuracy: I outshot my carry gun by 3 points with it on a DOT Torture test
- Had one weird feeling trigger malfunction, but I think it was me
- Every thing done to it
- Weight in the grip for balance
- 5 inch barrel
- cut slide
- flared mag well
- Just nice
- Initially liked one with an Apex trigger in it
- These two had flat triggers from Sig and I had problems figuring them out
