Sig P320 experiences?

Postby FergusonTO35 » Wed Mar 15, 2017 8:01 am

My best friend is a Sig Sauer guy through and through and recently ordered himself a P320 9mm compact, he is planning to add the subcompact grip shell for carry use. Anybody here have much experience with these pistols? Where are the 320's made? Apparently, they impressed the Army enough to become their next sidearm. I am pretty familiar with the classic metal frame Sigs but don't know much about the new poly grip striker fired ones. Do you think they are up to the same standards as the older ones? I'm not planning to get a 320 as it wouldn't do anything my Glocks already do quite well but I am intrigued by them.

I don't have a lot of Sig P320 experience, but I do like Sig pistols. I recently acquired a Sig P320 Compact .45acp with the small grip frame. It really is a sweet shooting gun and has nowhere near the recoil of the Sig P226 .40S&W that I recently sold because I finally had to accept that the grips were too large for my hands. I also own a Sig P239 in 9mm (one of my favorite pistols) and a P238 SAS .380acp (a very nice little gun).

My friend got the P320 compact in 9mm, I surprised him with a subcompact grip shell as a gift. We took it to the range and I was impressed with how well I could shoot it from the get go. Normally I have to get in a few range sessions with a new gun before I can shoot it well. Only thing I don't like is the trigger is awfully light and short not to have a manual safety.

My only experience is everyone asking for them at the gun shows and us not having enough of them! With the government contract there is a lot of interest in the 320 now and I bet a lot of the manufacturing is going towards fulfilling government contracts instead of going to civilian builds. They've been hard to get.

My local guy usually has a .40 cal P320 in stock, perhaps those are easier to find. .40 pistols still sell really well here, probably because most of our LE agencies are married to the cartridge.
