Picked up a Sig Sauer P320 in trade since all the cool kids are getting them now that the Army announced it was picked to replace the M9. So far I’ve only put 250 rounds through it but I will say this… I like it a hell of a lot more than the M9. I’m still breaking it in so I haven’t made any final judgements but I think the grip is a massive improvement over the M9 and a Glock.

I’m running a compact with the medium grip and the grip fits and points better than either gun. I find myself rolling my support thumb onto the take down lever and using it like a “go fast pedal” on a race gun. The trigger feels better than a stock Glock out of the box and I like the built in “dry fire mechanism” or the ability to reset the trigger without having to rack the slide each time. With that said I’m still planning on picking up a Gray Guns trigger as a upgrade since there’s room to improve.

I’m seeing good results as far as accuracy but I’ve primarily been working inside of 15 yards and running ball ammo. I’d like to see what it’s capable of at 25 with quality ammo.

Things I don’t like… I’m not a fan of the factory sights. But one of the first upgrades I do to any gun is swap the sights for a setup that lets me get a more precise sight picture. I typically run a fiber optic front and a 10-8 Performance or Way of the Gun all black rear sight on my handguns. Looks like the Dawson rear and a fiber optic is currently the only similar setup for the 320 so I’ll swap that out after breaking it in.

Overall it’s definitely got my attention as a non Glock option and I’m looking forward to running it more. If I can beat on it and it performs I can see switching to the compact P320 as a concealed carry. #thearmymayhavefiguredsomethingoutfinally
