P250/P320 Grip Modules

I almost bought a P320 in .45ACP the other day, but I noticed that it came with an "older" Grip Module. That got me thinking, right now there are four release Grip Modules (and a fifth, the LIMA05 that hasn't seen the light of day.)

First there is the original P250 Grip Module as seen here:



Next up, I see what I'd call Gen1 of the P320 Grip Module:



Then in 2016, we see a slight mod to the P320 Grip Module (Gen2):



Finally, at the beginning of 2017, we see the introduction of the P320 X-Five Grip Module:



The reason I started this thread was because I was about to buy a P320 in .45 and I noticed that it had the "Gen1" grip module. And as I cast about on the Interwebs I noticed that most of the .45 ACP P320s had the Gen1 Grip modules, but all of my 9mm guns have the Gen2 Grip.

Anyone know, other than by sight, how to identify which generation grip module you are getting?

I also think that the evolution of the grip module is actually pretty cool. I see a current market for both the X5 grip and the Gen2 grip.

I'm actually pretty interested in the LIMA05 as well.

I'm not interested. I WANT one. :-)

I've read that Sig uses the same part number for the old and new grip modules so there's no easy way to identify them.

My P320 full size .45ACP was built in January 2017 and it came with a Gen2 grip.

SIG had an incentive to produce the molds for the Gen 2 modules in 9mm for the Army pistol competition. There was no such incentive to rush out and invest in new molds for .45 grip modules.

Unfortunately as far as I know there are no serial/model # signifiers to identify the gen of grip
