SIG Sauer 320 X-Five DH3 Pistol

SIG Sauer Custom Works is announcing the release of the new SIG Sauer P320 X-Five DH3, a pistol made in collaboration with Team SIG’s Daniel Horner. The P320 X-Five DH3 is based off of SIGs P320 X-Five Legion while adding a few unique touches.

This pistol’s slide includes selective lightening cuts on the slide that allow it to move more quickly and remain flat making quick follow up shots easy.  Furthermore, the slide is also optics ready and has a covered, milled-out section while also coming equipped with suppressor-height X-Ray3 day and night sights. Its TXG grip module has tungsten infusions into the polymer that add some extra weight to the handgun. In addition, the SIG P320's X-Five DH3 grip module also has permanently baked-in silicon carbide grip texturing along the front strap, back strap and either side of the grip. Both the tungsten infusion and silicon carbide texturing work to help increase the pistol’s controllability under rapid shooting, especially in competition match settings. The grip module also has a flared magazine well, a common feature in the competition world which makes reloading a breeze.
