I ordered my new Sig from the "Used Handguns" part of BudsGunShop.com on a Wednesday and it was at my local FFL (10Ring Guns) on Monday. This is a $600 handgun that I was able to find used for $399. On inspection, my first thought was, if this is a used gun, I can't tell. In the pic above, the slide appears to have a dull, faded look, but this is because of the flash. Everything was new-looking, and the action was every bit as smooth and tight as a brand-new gun. It came with the box and all the case candy from Sig, but no holster (new Sig P320's come with a mediocre plastic starter holster). There were one 13-round magazine in the gun and two 14-round magazines, with adapter rings, plus an additional adapter ring, in the box. Of course, Buds had posted a perfectly accurate description of the box's contents, so there were no surprises. And honestly, who wouldn't love the idea of trading in the mediocre holster for an additional extended magazine, right?
The mag on the left is the 13-round one that was in the gun. The others are the 14-round mags with the adapter rings, and the additional adapter is shown also.
14-round magazine loaded with the adapter ring in place. Also visible is a patch of skateboard tape on the grip. This was only applied to the left side, and I liked it enough to leave it there. This was the only visible indication that this is a used gun that I could find, with the exception of slight wear on the underside of the slide, which is normal.
Tuesday morning found me on the range with my new Sig. I only had about an hour, so I fired 100 rounds of Remington UMC, which is what you see loaded into the mags in the mag pic above, and another 100 rounds of Freedom Munitions Blaster reman ammo. The gun performed flawlessly, without a single hiccup from the first shot to the last. If you're familiar with Sigs, you know that they're known for their Single Action Only, Double Action Only, and Single/Double Action pistols. But the P320 is a Striker Fired pistol, which is a departure from Sig's usual forte. For me, this was the gun's primary selling point: Sig Sauer quality in a striker-fired platform, without the trigger pull of a single- or double-action handgun. This trigger is smooth and easy, with a noticeable wall and an easily-felt reset. Right now I have no plans to replace the trigger. The standard factory white-dot sights are easy to see, and the sight picture is easy to re-acquire after the snap, even in .40.
I won't go into how easy it is to take the gun down and clean it, or the modular design and all that, because it's all over YouTube. If you're interested in a Sig P320, I'd assume you already know about all of that. For me, the pistol being modular isn't really that much of a selling point, as I only wanted the compact size (technically "compact medium"), and am primarily a .40 shooter. I'm not breaking it down to swap out parts in the foreseeable future.
So there's my review, folks. I don't post reviews on here as a general rule, but I'd already written this one for Budsgunshop.com, so I figured I'd drop it into my blog. I've got a lot of content on the way, most of which is saved in draft form waiting for the right time to publish it. I've consolidated all of my blogs into this one, and will be dropping posts more frequently very soon. Stay tuned!
