Off-roster and $700ish?

Sig P320 X-Five (one of the most ridiculously overpriced off-roster gun in the MP)

why not the Sig Sauer SP2022?

for about 500 bucks, and you get a nice DA/SA pistol with sig quality. Only draw back you dont' have much aftermarket part to deal with, but then again, the pistol is nice enough you don't need much aftermarket upgrade anyways

Ok, serious question, what makes the Vickers G17 with RTF2 so special? Aside from color, sights, frame texture, grip plug, and extended mag release, is there anything else that is tuned?

I would go with the CZ P10C within price.

But a Maxim 9 would be awesome

OP, I wouldn't get too hung up on it being off-roster unless you think you might want to sell it later (higher resale in CA). Off roster doesn't always equate to better choice for your needs.

The textured frame, specific serial # and exclusive color! Makes it shoot way better!

Honestly all the vickers parts can be bought for cheap but I like the exclusivity of the fde coloring and the frame feels really nice.

Understood. I was just curious. I do have a Glock 22 with RTF2 and I will admit, it does feel nicer than a regular Glock.

Whatever you get just make sure it's all steel. There are no substitutes.

If you can go off-roster, get a Shadow 2. Anything plastic is not going to have a trigger nearly as nice.

Or get a real Open gun.

can you even buy one still with all the voluntary "recall" that sig is doing.

I think you should go with the Vickers G-17. Sounds like you really like this one. The best advice is to go with the one YOU want.

Go shoot 'em. Rent a few at ranges, have friends let you borrow & shoot theirs.

I got my wife an FMK 9mm with the bill of rights engraved on the side. She shoots it dead-eye and likes the trigger pull/grip just fine.
