Trip to the gun store tonight
« on: November 26, 2017, 04:47:18 PM »
   I have two that are fairly local and nice places, but not much inventory or selection. Given that... I went to one which does have a decent amount of stuff and the whole crew basically sucks!
   I went back and forth looking for the CZ section and finally one of them asked if I was looking for something. The middle section I stood at eyeballing 4 or 5 models without the same group asking if I wanted to take a look at one. I gave it another 5 minutes and just left  >:D It's no wonder why I do almost all my buying on the internet!
   They did have this cool looking Sig P320 RX with a Romeo optic on it for $900. Anyone know about that optic and what other pistols might have it installed like that? I kind of always wanted to try a red-dot optic!

 The other neat one was a Walther Q5 Match.

I didn't see this when you posted it.

I have the 320 Compact RX. It is very accurate with my hand loads, about  1.5" @25 yds with a rest using the red dot and about 2.75" using irons under the same parameters.

I just picked up a 320 X Carry which I put a Romeo1 on, but haven't been able to do anything with it yet because of this artic freeze we're in. Tuning loads for it, it might shoot tighter than the compact RX.

The 320 X Five has a few features which might suit you better. It includes a grip weight and has the capability to switch out the recoil guide rod for a tungsten one and use 1911 springs to fine tune it even further. It is already milled for the Romeo1, also.

The Romeo1 has a lifetime, no questions asked warranty. I was adjusting the iron sights on my 320RX by drifting them. In the process, the lens cracked. Sig replaced it at no cost.
The motion activated feature of the Romeo1 is more sensitive than I would like. Just the jostling of riding in my car turns the sight on. I don't have a clue as to how long a battery will last if it is carried all the time.

I'm still getting used to the transition from iron sights to the dot, but as my eyes continue aging, I'm sure the RX will be my preferred carry weapon.
