The SIG (Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft, or Swiss Industrial Society in German)-Sauer P320 made its official debut in 2014 on the NSSF SHOT Present.⚠️It was initially out there in two sizes, “Carry” and “Full-Measurement.”

The brand new pistol was the primary new SIG design since 2008’s P250 and its first striker-fired pistol ever. Not unexpectedly, it garnered a variety of consideration in the course of the present. That new handgun was first in an entire collection of P320 pistols and was ultimately chosen to be the M17, the army’s new normal concern sidearm.

A smaller model adopted that debut the next yr throughout SHOT 2015, and included a model chambered in .45 in addition to a few new colours). 2016 noticed a SIG P320 designed to accommodate purple dot optics, 2017 gave us the P320 X5, P320 VTAC, and a security recall, and 2018 heralded the arrival of the civilian model of the M17. The newest model, a minimum of as of this writing, is the P320 XCompact, wich was described by the producer as having a “…utterly redesigned grip module with an improved beavertail and fastback profile, contoured magwell, and a deep set off guard un

Whereas there are variations amongst all of the totally different variations, some are extra apparent than others  (as an example the totally different grip profiles between a regular P320 and the X model of it). They’re all functionally comparable, nevertheless.


Preliminary SIG P320 Evaluations

Response to the brand new pistol was predictably combined, with most detractors specializing in excessive bore axis of what they also known as the “striker-fired P250” (which wasn’t precisely a brand new description of SIG-Sauer pistols.

Probably the most extremely anticipated function of the brand new pistol appeared to be its modularity. Fortunate Gunner describes it thusly:

“The modular grip, together with a number of non-compulsory security options ought to make the P320 very engaging to the regulation enforcement market that Sig is concentrating on with this launch. There are plenty of businesses on the market nonetheless utilizing basic Sigs, however their reputation has waned considerably. The heavy DA/SA pistols are nonetheless good performers on the vary and in real-life situations, however most departments are seeing some great benefits of lighter weight, constant set off pull, and adjustable grip sizes, particularly as they relate to coaching and to equipping personnel with various wants. These departments who like their Sigs however need 21st-century options will now have an choice.

The modularity potential could be very fascinating, however we’ve seen this earlier than from Sig with the P250, and it didn’t fairly pan out as everybody had hoped. Whether or not this was as a result of Sig was sluggish to roll out the promised choices or due to the P250’s performance issues at its preliminary launch, many shoppers might be skeptical of Sig’s claims relating to the P320. Luckily, the P320 is a totally totally different design from the P250, which ought to assist to calm the fears of those that had dangerous experiences with the P250.”


Longtime firearm-write Wiley Clapp (who jogs my memory of a former gyrene model of my maternal grandfather) referred to the P320 in a 2015 article on the American Rifleman as “…tomorrow’s SIGs for as we speak,” precisely describing their SIGness by writing about its…

“…blocky slide sitting properly above the receiver, gracefully formed butt part, simplified controls. Unquestionably, a robust household resemblance.”


John Farnam didn’t appear too impressed with the P320. He wrote, maybe considerably presciently,

“The copy of the 320 I noticed on the SHOT Present final week didn’t have a passive, trigger-tab security, nor did it have a guide security. I used to be advised an non-compulsory (and superfluous) guide security lever shall be provided, sooner or later, instead. This might be a mistake, as it is going to hopelessly confuse shoppers, a lot because it has amongst M&P house owners.

Like Ruger earlier than them, I think SIG will belatedly uncover that not having a trigger-tab passive security on this new pistol, just like Glock’s (or a jointed set off, just like S&W’s) from the start, was additionally a mistake. Absolute, mechanical drop-safety on critical pistols has turn out to be an institutional requirement, and a common shopper expectation. Trendy shoppers demand a pistol that may be routinely carried, even in tempestuous environments, with a spherical chambered and able to hearth, with by no means a fear about trauma-engendered ADs (Unintentional Discharges).” (Comply with-up to response from SIG right here.)

SIG P320: A brand new fast overview…three years later

Although this video didn’t come out till late 2017, it offers a superb overview of the P320 we all know now. Its late look is probably going resulting from numerous contributing elements, together with the recall (q.v.), subsequent redesign, and the Modular Handgun System competitors.

2014 — SIG-Sauer P320’s inaugural yr

We’ve mentioned how the SIG P320 was revealed. This description is from the unique introduction on the web site:

“That includes a modular grip body and detachable hearth management meeting pioneered by SIG SAUER, the P320 is customizable to any hand measurement or obligation requirement. The P320 can shortly be transformed from a Full-size to a Carry pistol. Slide and barrel conversions permit the P320 to vary between calibers and barrel lengths as nicely. The P320 might be instantly out there in 9mm, .40 S&W and .357SIG, with .45ACP coming later in 2014.

With a partially pretensioned striker, the P320 has a brief, crisp set off pull with a fast, pronounced reset proper out-of-the-box. The P320 is available in two set off variants: a regular set off and a tabbed security set off for particular regulation enforcement shoppers. That includes the SIG SAUER inner security system, the P320 has no exterior security or decocking lever to snag or cling up on the draw. A frame-mounted thumb security model will probably be obtainable for regulation enforcement wants. SIGLITE® night time sights come commonplace, and the reversible journal launch makes the P320 utterly ambidextrous.”


Nick Leghorn of The Fact About Weapons appreciated the pistol, although with simply a few points (one with the set off, the opposite with the peak of the gun). He wrote,

“…for rivals, the most important profit may be the power to take your set off group of selection, the one you’ve polished and tweaked and perfected to get it simply the best way you prefer it, and swap it between weapons with none points. One other advantage of the 320’s easily-removed metallic bits is which you could clear the gun remarkably simply. No muss, no fuss, no making an attempt to shove Q-tips into hard-to-reach nooks and crannies.

So, the gun is a technological step ahead. However the actual query is how nicely it really works on the vary, and for me it’s one thing of a combined bag.”

Round that very same time, Mas Ayoob wrote,

Celebrity engineer Ethan Lessard led the undertaking of what would develop into the P320 pistol. The early variations have been carried out on the P250 format, with the primary two prototypes being a “straight drop in” for the P250 manufacturing line. A button takedown was designed: Lessard advised me, “SIG protocol is for the consumer to HAVE to take away the journal and HAVE to lock the slide to the rear to start disassembly.”

He went on to opine,

“The result’s a good-feeling pistol with its personal distinctive look, energetic within the hand, with the comparatively low bore axis which the striker-fired idea promotes. This leads to much less muzzle rise and subsequently much less time between correct photographs.”

Later that yr, SIG Sauer confirmed off their Modular Handgun System candidate on the 2014 AUSA (Affiliation of the US Military) Annual Assembly & Exposition. There they suggested Soldier Methods Every day of some variations between the army hopeful and its business progenitor, together with such modifications as:

• Tan Colour
• Ambi Thumb Security
• Decrease Profile Ambi Slide Launch
• Loaded Chamber Indicator
• Set off Boot
• Firing Pin Meeting

SIG Sauer P320 Compact, SIG P320 Subcompact, and a .45 Choice | 2015 

2015 gave us smaller SIG P320s. Within the latter months of the yr, it additionally delivered a assessment by Tamara Keel, who’d pushed gozillions of rounds via a SIG P320 (legitimately, with a logbook) over the course of a number of months. By August she’d had 1800 rounds by way of it complete, with one failure to feed and three suspect primers (as you’ll be able to learn that right here).

Dennis Adler reviewed the P320 on Private Protection World, saying,

“Sig Sauer presents just one set off pull weight commercially that ranges from 5.5 to six.5 kilos. Pull on the check gun, as averaged on a Lyman set off pull gauge, was 6.four kilos, which, with the gun’s brief set off pull (zero.625 inches), zero overtravel and fast reset, was a nominal deviation. This can be a very straightforward gun to deal with and shoot with consistency.”

2015 additionally noticed an RFP (Request For Proposals) to firearm producers for a brand new obligation pistol. Although Glock finally gained that choice course of, there have been some who thought the FBI’s RFP was “tailored” for the SIG-Sauer P320.

“The FBI RFP appears to be blatantly tailor-made to suit one specific firearm, the Sig Sauer P320. There isn’t a doubt that authorities businesses typically write tight requirements when a RFP goes out, having particular necessities and wishes for the product to be bought. Nevertheless, this RFP seems to be so particular that solely the Sig Sauer P320 would match all of the FBI necessities. Let’s look at the RFP and present what number of fantastic handguns are eradicated by the FBI necessities…”

Referred to as the “Dance of the Dragons,” this was the primary inner battle through which each side had Dragons. Targaryen fought Targaryen and every faction managed territory, with numerous Nice Homes allied to totally different claimants to the crown (and some who tried to stay impartial). The warfare lasted simply two years however untold hundreds have been butchered. It additionally marked the start of the top for dragons, which species died out in Westeros not too lengthy after.

Nearly nobody in any of the various battles fought through the Dance of the Dragons had even heard of the SIG P320.

SIG P320 Recall, MHS Determination, and SIG P320 X Carry | 2017

In  2017 it was introduced that SIG-Sauer had been chosen to be the army’s new handgun. This stunned lots of those that anticipated the choice course of to interact in the identical kind of fuckery as its makes an attempt to choose a brand new camouflage, although the result of the earlier yr’s World Collection had left many people extra inured to shock than we’d in any other case have been.

The number of SIG’s pistol for the MHS chapped as many asses because it happy others…and leaving extra ambivalent. It was Tamara Keel who responded to the announcement in one of the simplest ways when she famous that the Military had acquired a brand new pistol earlier than Chevy dealerships had gotten a mid-Engine Corvette.

“Personally, I feel the MHS contest might have been as satisfactorily resolved by throwing a P320, an M&P, and a Glock 17 right into a sack, spinning it round a couple of occasions, and reaching in and pulling one out. All of them work high quality, and if there’s a much less essential weapon in trendy warfare than the pistol, it in all probability attaches to bayonet lugs.” Tamara Keel

Not too lengthy after that, SIG-Sauer started proselytizing the P320-M17, the “civilian model” of the army MHS. That weapon had a detachable sight plate meeting that could possibly be changed with an optic.

Grunts: proselytize.

Tom McHale reviewed and wrote concerning the SIG P320 not too lengthy after SHOT on AmmoLand in A Nearer Take a look at the Military’s New Gun.

“The actual shock of the P320 was its accuracy. I had three totally different Sig Sauer pistols, all chambered in .357 Sig, on the similar time and examined them aspect by aspect utilizing a handgun scope mounted with a UM Tactical Rail mount. I anticipated the venerable P226 and P229 pistols to grab the accuracy honors as a result of they’re all metallic and have storied reputations. Nevertheless, simply the other occurred.”


“Don’t get me fallacious, the P226 didn’t disappoint – it simply generated 25-yard, five-shot teams underneath three inches virtually each time with a broad number of ammo. Nevertheless, the P320 beat that handily, knocking out fairly a couple of sub-two-inch teams. For instance, the primary three five-shot, 25-yard teams measured simply 1.56, 1.92, and 1.61 inches utilizing Sig Sauer’s V-Crown 125-grain .357 Sig masses. Different ammo shot equally properly.

You get the thought. This gun will shoot.”

Later that yr, Tamara accomplished her SIG P320 evaluation for Capturing Illustrated, which included some background on the X-series of pistols.

“It appears that evidently SIG had employed former USPSA President Phil Strader because the product supervisor for the P320 line. Additional, SIG uncovered the P320 to a whole lot of racing at USPSA matches within the palms of its capturing workforce, headed by legendary pistolsmith and shooter, Bruce Grey.

Because the saying goes, racing improves the breed, and little question a lot of what had been discovered over that point turned up on this new X-series of pistols.”

X-Wings are not the same as the SIG X-Carry“The X-frame used on the SIG Sauer P320 X-Carry is a radical departure from the traditional P320 grip body. It encompasses a excessive beavertail within the again and a deeply-scalloped undercut on the rear of the set off guard the place it meets the highest of the frontstrap, all within the identify of dropping the pistol a couple of valuable millimeters deeper into the shooter’s hand.” TK



SIG P320 XCarry review for Shooting Illustrated by Tamara Keel[Modification of the frame and backstrap achieved…] a minimal of muzzle flip and as little side-to-side play underneath recoil as potential to make sight monitoring simpler…If the general form and contour of the body on this gun appears just like sure different weapons steadily discovered on the prime of USPSA production-class standings, nicely, it’s probably for a similar purpose dolphins, sharks, ichthyosaurs and assault submarines are all formed just about alike. TK

• Concern 32 of RECOIL got here out in mid-2017; in it, the journal pitted the SIG P320 X5 towards the Canik T9SFX in a well-written comparability (utilizing boxing analogies) by Nick Saiti. Sait describes the 2 weapons, and lays the groundwork for his article, thusly:

“These weapons are probably the most apt variations the respective corporations have to supply. When main producers stamp a contest designation on pistols, you’ll be able to often rely on a couple of options — an extended barrel, a greater set off, higher sights, and no matter is deemed higher for the shootability of the gun. Each weapons reap the benefits of the slide-mounted optic development by offering slide cuts for mini red-dots. There’s no rule that claims as a result of they’re ‘competitors’ weapons they will’t be reliable vary companions or (when you have room within the waistband) carry weapons. Quite the opposite, these are sometimes probably the most enjoyable weapons to shoot as they provide the power to ship quicker and extra correct photographs on track.”

SIG P320 review: P320 vs. Canik T9PSFK comparison by RECOIL Magazine

• 2017 additionally noticed using the SIG P320 by many worldwide army and regulation enforcement organizations, together with some from Norway,  Denmark, and the very Norway-and-Denmark-like North Dakota.💬2

• Probably the most notable SIG occasion of 2017, although, was (sadly for SIG) information that dropping the P320 at -30° angle might trigger an unintentional (not negligent) discharge. This kind of report impacted each their civilian gross sales and maybe extra considerably, their relationship with LE businesses — reminiscent of when Dallas Police Division Firearm Coaching Middle forbade its officers from carrying a P320 on obligation.

The Sig Sauer P320 recall issued by Dallas Police Division caught all of us abruptly. Officers have been instructed to cease carrying the P320 till the difficulty was resolved. With all of the testing that the P320 has undergone with the Modular Handgun System program, the FBI trials that have been narrowly misplaced to Glock, Immigration & Customs Enforcement adopting the firearm and a number of other different large contracts It’s onerous to assume that one thing as straightforward to check as drop security would have gone unnoticed.

Unusually there’s a observe within the house owners guide that states that the pistol might hearth when dropped. I all the time chalked it up as one thing a lawyer someplace insisted that Sig embrace within the guide.

It was, as you possibly can think about, shitty icing to placed on the army information cake.

Though the P320, SIG-Sauer suggested, was inside security commonplace necessities for ANSI, SAAMI, and the NIJ, the corporate launched a “voluntary improve” program to right the issue in early August. A couple of days later they launched an internet site to deal with this system (it’s nonetheless stay, for many who want it).💬three

Public response was instant and significant. As regular, some was measured and reasoned; others bordered on the histrionic.💬four

As a result of internetz.

Grunts: histrionic.

And now, a pair extra compulsory SHOT Present movies so I don’t break the custom.


• Edit, 2/11/19:

That is an fascinating bit on the P320, particularly for those who’re a historical past buff acquainted with so-called “Khyber Cross” weapons.

“It’s completely superb what may be made with some low tech equipment, uncooked supplies and years of expertise. Having constructed a couple of AKs of my very own, I do know first hand the problem of constructing a gun from a elements package. Nevertheless taking metallic, wooden, and now apparently polymer, and making a functioning pistol is true craftsmanship. YouTube consumer ‘ABKTheReal’ uploaded a collection of brief movies from the Tribal Area of Pakistan that features a polymer Khyber Cross Sig P320 or P250.” Pete M.

In 1050 of the Third Age, Ciryaher conquered Harad and took the identify Hyarmendacil, “South-victor.” This was the yr Gondor reached the peak of its energy. Nevertheless, about this time a shadow fell on Greenwood, and males start to name it Mirkwood. That is additionally the primary yr the Periannath (hobbits) have been first talked about in data, with the approaching of the Harfoots to Eriador. Simply 50 years later the Clever (the Istari and chief Eldar) will uncover that an evil energy has constructed a stronghold in Dol Guldur. They consider it to be one of many Nazgûl.

SIG-Sauer P320 | 2018

• Extra SIG P320 stuff occurred in 2018, although it was overshadowed by their new P365 (which gained Weapons & Ammo’s “Handgun of the Yr” award for 2018). One vital honor paid to the weapon was its concern in October to the Previous Guard, who would thenceforth be sporting it whereas guarding the Tomb of the Unknowns. 💬5

SIG Tomb of the Unknowns edition M17 for the Old Guard

These pistols bore the names Silence, Respect, Dignity, and Perseverance; they’ve the crest of the Previous Guard on grips product of wooden from the united statesOlympia, and a number of other further goosebump-inducing options which might be each solemn and symbolic.

• Simply a few months in the past (as of this writing), the American Rifleman revealed an article on the P320-M17. The writer, Andrew Butts, opines at size. A few of his observations embrace an…

“…an preliminary concern concerning the pistol’s frame-mounted thumb security. The security sits intently behind the slide catch lever. I used to be frightened that capturing with my proper thumb resting on prime of the security may intrude with correct operation of the slide catch. Fortuitously, that wasn’t the case. Capturing the pistol with both the suitable or left hand with a excessive thumb grip brought about no concern. In fact, shooters who don’t use a excessive thumb grip could have no worries in any respect.”

SIG P320-M17 from a review by Andrew Butts on American Rifleman

He goes on.

“Apparently, we’re now seeing a return to our roots, because it have been, with the M17 and its frame-mounted security. America’s first and doubtless most acknowledged semi-automatic, the 1911, featured a frame-mounted security that allowed the pistol to be carried in Situation One with a spherical within the chamber and the security on…I’ve by no means been a fan of the M9’s slide-mounted lever and am glad to see the Military go together with a extra ergonomic selection.

I do discover it considerably contradictory that SIG has departed, to a sure extent, from the modular idea with the P320-M17. With the addition of the frame-mounted thumb security, the plastic grip module can not be swapped out with most of the measurement or colour choices available on the market.” [Read the rest.]

• Tactical Life posted the next video concerning the SIG P320-M17. It seems like extra of a business than an precise assessment, because the title claims, it does present a very good overview of the weapon and it Sean Utley was concerned with it. And he’s dreamy.

SIG Sauer P320 | 2019

• In 2019 (only a couple weeks again, truly) we noticed the discharge of the P320 XCompact, which featured an up to date sight plate. This was modified to simply accept the Deltapoint Professional and SIG’s personal Romeo-2. It has a flat set off and, just like the M17 collection, it has a floating chamber indicator (amongst different modifications). SIG-Sauer described the most recent P320 as having a “…utterly redesigned grip module with an improved beavertail and fastback profile, contoured magwell, and a deep set off guard undercut.”

• Proper earlier than SHOT, Sean Curtis (not Rob Curtis, that’s a completely totally different Curtis) penned a evaluation for Pew Pew Tactical. The assessment addresses, amongst different issues, controls and breaking the shot, to wit..

“These controls have been ambidextrous and I discovered them simply accessible from both hand with out being cumbersome or rubbing my palms throughout use.

The security is true the place it must be and whereas the slide cease lever is fairly tightly positioned simply after, you possibly can nonetheless function each fairly simply together with your thumb.  

Testing the set off, it averaged in at seven kilos on the Lyman Digital Gauge from Brownells however unusually felt lighter than this to my finger. The set off had roughly 1.5 mm of takeup earlier than hitting resistance.  

After that, a simple pull completes the shot. The set off felt a bit springy however was all too acquainted to somebody used to striker-fired pistols.”💬7

• Only a couple days earlier than Sean’s article, Garand Thumb (who owes me $2)💬7 launched a video take a look at the M17 model of the P320 (which if I failed to notice earlier than, has a redesigned slide-catch lever that was pushed ahead to accommodate the thumb security). Take a watch.

💬1 Disclosure(s). How did I select what evaluations or movies to publish? That varies. Some have been chosen as a result of I do know and respect or admire the individual doing the evaluation (like Tamara Keel) and/or take pleasure in good info (“Garand Thumb”). Nonetheless others, instances the place I don’t personally know the person concerned, are included as a nod to publications that historically put out good info.

What you’ll learn herein is meant to be informational. I’m not making an attempt to persuade anybody of something. I care far much less about what pistol somebody makes use of than I do this they go practice with it, and I’m detached to the army’s selection of pistol. I’m kinda with Tamara on how that choice ought to have gone. I feel the DoD might have spun a bottle between the higher striker-fired pistols to make their choice and are available out higher than they have been with the M9 (which, in equity, seemed good in 80s films and makes a superb small boat anchor).

I’ve no connection to SIG-Sauer. I’ve by no means purchased a SIG and I’ve solely ever carried one as soon as, as a mandated problem obligation weapon — after which just for a couple of months. I’ve nothing towards them, both. They make an excellent gun. Lots of my friends love ’em. In the event that they made an airweight snubby I’d even personal one, however they don’t, and till I end restoring my dad’s truck I don’t have the cash to spend on a semi-auto I’d solely use sometimes on the vary.
