Blending the best of both worlds, the striker-fired SIG P320 XFIVE Legion combines a polymer frame with the weight of a steel-frame pistol.
SIG Sauer has gone all-in when it comes to competition of late. On staff the company boats names such as Phil Strader, Max Michel, and arguably the greatest 3-Gunner of all-time, Daniel Horner. And now the company has a pistol well-suited for various disciplines within the action shooting sports, the SIG XFIVE Legion.
SIG P320 XFIVE Legion Features
With so much knowledge on staff in the arena of action shooting, the team sought to take the best features of the two most common pistol types, both steel and polymer frame platforms. The company then blended the two, delivering a striker-fired system with the weight commonly found on 2011-type pistols.
“What we’ve done here at SIG Sauer, we’ve combined the two,” explained Strader. “We’ve given the ability to put a striker-fired gun in a really heavy package. And this is the 320 XFIVE Legion. This gun weighs 43 1/2 ounces, and it still uses a tungsten-poly mixed grip module. So you have all the weight of a steel gun but the flex of a polymer gun, and its striker-fired, so you get the same trigger pull every single time. It’s an incredible advantage over the competition.”
To date, SIG only rumored the release of the P320 XFIVE Legion, and reports have trickled out from various outlets. We are expecting a well-thought-out pistol equally capable of competing in USPSA Production division and most divisions of 3-Gun.
With Team SIG’s incredible team of shooters, chances are SIG got this one right. We’re looking forward to see more on this new pistol as info becomes available.
