New style X Carry barrel in M18:

Thanks for the pics! It’s unfortunate though. It looks like Sig has done some cost cutting and production streamlining. The older X-Carry’s have a noticeable difference in barrel design in that the locking surfaces are larger leading to a tighter lock up. I also notice your X-Carry slide lacks the top lighting cut. For me personally I wouldn’t mind as it lets less stuff work it’s way into the gun but still, it kinda takes some of the flash out of the X-Carry. Still a solid performer though. Nice shooters.

At some point we as a group need to pull our resources and make a guide highlight design changes and rough time line for when they happened.

Well if it means anything, my M18 has a production date of Nov 2019. My X Carry has a production date of Jan 2021.

Nice, you really should check out the WC modules. I thought the X series module was the best ever until I got the WC module. They made an amazing module that I don’t think any company will be able to improve on for some time.


Side note, I was watching a video and Larry Vickers was talking about some parts that he and Tango Down have developed for the P320. I need to keep an eye out on their site.

I wish the grip module was an actually coyote color, my ocd with that type of thing won’t let me order one



A buddy of mine is getting one so I will be able to try one out.

ETA: I still have another 320 that it may get the upgrade of the WC grip. Just depends.

You can always buy one and play with Rit dye to darken it up.

Breadpan of boiling water.

1 Tablespoon Pearl Gray
1 teaspoon Camel
1/2 teaspoon Harvest
1/2 teaspoon Taupe

8 minute soak flipping every couple of minutes.

It's as near as no nevermind to medium coyote tan as to make no difference.

While we are on the superiority of the Wilson modules, I finally got mine back from an exchange and now have a compact Wilson on my full size 320. The months I spent going back to an X-Carry grip were miserable compared to the WC between the profile and the grip texture. Now I just need to source a 15 round compact mag, after a mishap with ACT mags that turned out to be pinned full sized mags. In the mean time, I have fabricobbled myself base plate to prevent over insertion of the 17 rounders from a 21 round base plate as a $10 safety measure to protect my ejector.

It's great and all, but that stupid front sight has to be a mile high to cowitness, so I'm slightly at a loss with what I want to do with this one, currently.

Me too, so maybe you can help me out. I'm not too up on the Lego Sigs, but what little I know has led me to wanting a 320 X-Carry with a 320 X-Compact grip module. What do you think about that? Also, what exactly is the difference between the small, medium and large X-Carry grip modules?

Thanks man. Runs pretty slick too. The slide rail channels seem to be cut just a little tighter than OEM Sig so a lot of play is taken out. Its not hand fitted 2011, but damn is it smooth for a 320.

I appreciate it. Just placed the order. Looks like the cheapest I have seen 15s in a while, and I haven't even seen them in stock most places.

Should definitely work.

Usually there's roughly a 1mm or so difference between the sizes for width and front to back dimensions. It doesn't sound like much, but the mediums are usually ok, the smalls feel pretty small and the large feel VERY large.

I have large palms and short fingers, so I gravitate to smaller grip modules, or smaller grips in general.

Thanks. I actually meant to ask about the sizes for the X-Compact grip modules, but I’d imagine that what you are saying about the sizes would be the same for either one.

Here’s a photo of an X-Carry sitting on an X-Compact grip module.

The Xcompact has a subcompact length slide/barrel with a grip module that is subcompact length and compact height(15rd mag)

Hopefully that helps. There are many variations with the P320 and not all of them are still available new.

ETA
The size of the grip module(S, M, L) is the palm size as said above. Each Sig grip module has the little letter on the rear bottom of the grip so indicate size. That is irrelevant to the frame "style" like carry, compact, fullsize, ect

Thanks. I think what I’m looking for is the 3.9” slide/barrel paired with the X-Compact grip module. Also, as you stated, the X-Carry is no longer available, but there are currently a couple of used ones available in my larger AO. My thought was to buy one and then buy an X-Compact grip module. But, is there a problem with older X-Carry slides not being milled to accept newer optics? Is there a better way for me to accomplish what I am trying to do, or a reason not to do it?

The older optic cut slides are cut for the Romeo1. Newer slides are cut for the Romeo1 Pro. So it depends what optic you are wanting to use. In addition to different cuts there are also different sight layouts. Some have a dovetail cut for the rear sight and the optic cut. Some like the Xcompact and Legion have the rear right bolted in under the optic cut plate so when you remove the plate for an optic, the sight is removed too.

You can have either style cut for an RMR footprint or you can use an adapter plate.

It can be a task to plan all this out having to deal with all the variations Sig decided to implement

ETA
I probably missed some stuff

Thanks again for explaining this stuff to me.

I wouldn’t be able to tell whether the X-Carry was an older cut or newer cut by sight. Is there a serial number to look for when they changed?

Also, I would probably just go for the lowest total height of optic or optic+plate. I’d want to be at the lowest profile possible. But, once I’m at that point, then sight co-witness problems begin?

ETA:  Here’s an X-Carry that’s for sale near me. Which is this, new cut or old cut?

That is the older Romeo 1 cut. However, that older X-Carry slide is superior to the current X-Carry slide. The original X-Carry (like the in in the photo), has a special barrel in it. The barrel is a marksman barrel which is specific to that slide. It makes the older X-Carry guns very accurate as the lock up is very tight due to bigger engagement surfaces on the barrel and slide fit. The current X-Carry’s have a standard Sig 3.9” barrel. Probably because they are easier to manufacture. You can always have the slide cut on the older X-Carry modded to use any optic you want. Personally the Romeo 1 and Pro versions are not that great. I’d look at modifying it for the RMR or Holosun optics. A few places do this mod for $70-$100. Point I’m making is, while the cut out on that slide is the older cut, everything about that version of the X-Carry slide is better than the current X-Carry. Easy way to identify the new from the old, the cut out on the top of the slide. The current X-Carry’s lack the cut out. The current X-Carry’s have a square chamber and the older have a slanted chamber. If you go back a page to page two close to the bottom, me and another member work out the changes and differences now.

Thanks. I’ve read this whole thread multiple times, including the bottom of page 2, but I just couldn’t get all this straight. The guy wants $750 for this one and he says that they are hard to find. It’s stock except for the Wilson module.

Also, I thought I read that they aren’t selling the X-Carry anymore.

$750 isnt a bad price considering the fact that I see used base model P320s for sale in the 600-800 range pretty regularly in shops and at gun shows.

Like Charlie said it is a desirable model for those that know. I knew there was a better than average barrel but until today I had no idea how to pick it out of a crowd

Thanks. I’ve read this whole thread multiple times, including the bottom of page 2, but I just couldn’t get all this straight. The guy wants $750 for this one and he says that they are hard to find. It’s stock except for the Wilson module.

Also, I thought I read that they aren’t selling the X-Carry anymore.

$750 is a good deal man. I paid $700 for mine new. The Wilson Combat module is a nice upgrade over the standard X-series module IMO. You use the standard 17 round mags which are not hard to come by even now. You can use the 17 round ACT mags as well. They are G2G. If you are not going to buy that send me the guys info. Even with shipping that is a solid deal on a great version of the P320.

I was wanting an X Carry but ended up with an X Compact. I didn’t realize the X Carry wasn’t available anymore. I just confirmed that at Sig’s site.

Crap, that makes the one I just got one of the last ones made.... Jan 2021 production.

The grips will still be available though.

@Charlie_Foxtrot

Here’s another one. This guy wants $800. The other one with the Wilson Combat module for $750, also comes with a 50 round box of defensive ammo.

He says he bought it three months ago, but you’re saying that this is the older cut out slide, that only takes the Romeo1? When did they start making the newer ones? Did they use the older one for this special edition camo slide version?

Which one of these is it? It doesn’t look like the Romeo1 only one on the far left.

The one in the far left is what Sig calls their RXP cut. It has a standard dovetail rear sight vs having the optics plate with rear sight like the X-Carry and X-Five models. It has the Romeo 1 footprint.

As for the claim that he bought them three months ago, I don’t doubt that. Lots of new old stock floating around other there. My understanding is that Sig made the change to the new version X-Carry mid 2020. The camo one looks to have the newer non-marksman barrel though it is hard to tell without seeing the crown. Based on the lighting cut on the top of the slide, in my opinion both of the P320 he has are the older but IMO, better version of the X-Carry. The updated X-Carry has the slide cover with the newer DPP/Romeo 1 Pro footprint, (the far right slide in the pic).

My personal opinion is that the Sig red dot optics as well as the Delta Point Pro are not up to the same quality as the Trijicon RMR and Holosun 507/508 series of optics. If it were me, I’d buy the older X-Carry and get a CHPWS adapter plate and .330” front sight. https://chpws.com/product/sig-p320-x-series-romeo1-cut-to-rmr-holosun-with-integrated-rear-sight

This would allow you to mount and RMR/SRO or Holosun 507/508 optic with back up irons. This is in my opinion with my testing to be the best option for optics mounting outside of having a slide milled for a specific sight.


Side note, that camo P320 X-Carry is a limited edition. Not sure why Sig did it but it may be worth more in 10-20 years from now.

It’s two different guys that have them for sale. I want the better barrel, so do I need to get a photo of the crown to be sure about the barrel? Here’s another photo of the first one(non-camo), if it doesn’t help you tell which barrel/slide it is, I’ll get a photo of the crown.

ETA: What a damn rabbit hole these 320s are. So, it looks like all the original X-Carrys, with the X-Carry roll mark and lightening cut, should have the “marksman” crown barrels. At least according to what I read here.

Yeah Sig has done a lot of updates. Unlike other gun companies that will do a 1.0, 2.0, or generational updates Sig makes rolling changes. Some of these changes are improvements, some of them are unfortunate cost and production time changes as well. You have to really study the various models and stay current to keep track and even then you will come across an oddball one every now and then.

You would be correct. The end of the line production X Carry is more in line with the M18 minus the safety and standard grip.

Here is where I could be wrong but my thinking is with the M18, the new Legion X Carry, and FCU build it yourself killed off the regular X Carry (for now). For the money it is really the sweet spot in the 320 series and conceals really well (I have not had any issues and I’m a normal build and height). Even though the model being put together as it is is gone SIG was smart enough to keep the parts available.

What I want is an X-Carry, with an X-Compact grip module and a slide that I don't have to have to use an adapter plate or have milled in order to mount an RMR/508. Is that too much to ask for?

Buy a Carry or Compact size 320(new model with factory RMR cut). Buy an Xcompact grip module. Install dot.

Just when I thought I had it all figured out, another post comes along that reconfuses me.

Sig is supposed to be making their P320s with an RMR pattern slide. I do now know when they are starting or if it is even still true. So let's glance over that part

Carry and Compact use the same length slide/barrel and either one will work fine in an X-Compact grip module. They will just stick out slightly past the end of the pic rail/dust shield.

So you could build your own with the combination of parts.
Link Posted: 3/3/2021 10:40:22 AM EDT
The Sig slides with the RMR pattern holes only include the threaded holes. There are no recoil pins so the screws will be taking all of that force.

It was the glance over part that confused me.

It’s the slides that are the BS. Milling, adapter plates, raising the front sight, etc. The slides should be cut to accept all the optics. Like my my XL, 507k and done. Cowitness and all.

This is correct. Their PRO slides and the X5 Legion have the RMR holes but no recoil bosses. CHPWS makes a spacer plate and I'm not sure why they're the only manufacturer offering one at the moment.

It’s the slides that are the BS. Milling, adapter plates, raising the front sight, etc. The slides should be cut to accept all the optics. Like my my XL, 507k and done. Cowitness and all.



The problem with doing that is there are now 5 or 6 different foot prints that exist for red dots. Beyond just the footprint the optics themselves are different sizes. The issue with the P320 RXP and P320 with sight plates is that the Trijicon RMR is smaller than the DPP or Romeo1 Pro. If you use the holes in the slide to mount an RMR the optic will be relying on just those two screws to hold it in place. Over time those screws will fail, they will shear off and your optic is going for a ride. Glock has the right idea IMO but their execution sucks. Sig should follow their lead or buy something like the AOS https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2018/09/21/agency-arms-a-o-s-agency-optic-system/

It would make things much simpler, you just pick the plate for your optic.

Unity Tactical's ATOM 2.0 looks like a great modular system.  When announced they said it fits on Glocks and P320s, likely other striker fired guns, and the milling would be licensable so there's room for growth.  Too bad they haven't actually released it yet.

How thick are those plates? It looks like you would have ~2 threads grabbing the plate.

Here's my p320 m18 I carry most every day.

Those of you with Mantix, this is the gun I've used for the numerous drills.

Not my first 320, had a X5 Legion for a bit. But this is my first compact 320. Really like it so far.

Welcome to the club!

I ended up getting a Kerber Arms holster with the Safariland adapter when I got my M18 when they first came out.

I’ve heard good things about the Kerber arms.

Has anyone ordered one of the gunfighters inc kenai holsters for the M17/18 yet? I picked one up and really like it with my P220ST.
