Sig Sauer P320 Post-Recall

Has anyone dealt with the Post recall P320 basic model? Does it still have malfunction issues or safety concerns? I’ve heard people running into issues surrounding dead triggers, poor or weak ejections, and accidental discharges. Any info is much appreciated. Thanks

I was not involved into this, but safety issues with P320 were solved by Feb 2018. You shouldn’t have any problems now however if you want to be sure, just check with P320 serial number if the gun needs to be upgraded.

The fundamental issue was trigger weight, that caused the specific discharge issue. I replaced my trigger originally with an apex flat trigger, lots of benefits to the flat trigger, at thew time they were the only maker, great weight etc. Now sig sauer sells their own flat trigger. Great weapon,no issues regardless of model , compact,full size etc.

So if I were to get a compact p320 stock and were to buy a drop in trigger what would be your recommendation? Would it be the apex or Sig Sauers flat trigger?

Apex it’s a fantastic trigger, more shooting flexibility,more leverage on trigger pull,easily corrects bullet groupings based on improper finger pad placement on the curved trigger,works well with tactical gloves etc. And apex was the first by at least a year for this weapon, great weight etc.

So yes is the answer,but I would add the after market magazine extension. I run 40 caliber on this weapon, I have run thousands of rounds no issues. Normal and practice ammo is the same either fiocchi or Texas ranger load., Fiocchi gives good terminal impact velocity over longer distance without needing plus ammo etc. S &w ranger load gives decent performance,but drops a little over same distance as fiocchi ,powder burn or residue is nominal with fiocchi yes still need to clean the weapon but dirt is a lot less than cheaper munitions. Ballistics and terminal velocity (1100fps at impact) is better than some brands that are better known or talked about,but they usually cost a lot more

Fyi the magazine extension is by adamsgrips.com, hard to find unless u know. Deeper with much more control for the compact

I have an M17. No issues with it at all. I used it in a training course, and my coach was impressed. He loved it. I’m not familiar with the other versions of P320. Is the M17 very different? I’ve been considering getting another P320 one day.

I assume your meaning a p320 that’s been sent in and had the trigger upgraded? I had an original trigger I sent in for the voluntary upgrade and the gun ran just as well as it did before the upgrade. I was actullly quite happy when I got it back. Sig cleaned her up and replaced some wearing intervals free of charge. Looked and felt like a new gun when it was returned.

I’m not an expert in P320, but M17 is a great version of P320… that would be a gun of my choice 2 years ago.
If you go to SIG website you will find details for each P320 version. I my opinion (I’ve rented few P320 recently on my range) if you are considering another P320, check XFIVE LEGION. SIG made great improvements with grip for this gun.

Have you heard of anyone running into issues? Within the next few weeks I’ll be spending 600$ on either the P320 or a Glock of similar value. I’ve handled both and love them but the P320 IMO is wonderful (had an opportunity to shoot a mag or two). My biggest decider is being able to buy Trustworthy replacement parts to have on standby. Sig recently released the parts list for the 320 and I know you “supposedly” can buy Glock replacement parts (firing pin assembly) through companies other than Glock. Also I’ve “heard” that the disconnector on the 320 does nothing to prevent an accidental misfire due to jarring but rather it prevents firing when not in battery (this slightly sounds odd). Any info would be appreciated. I take little of what I’ve heard “negatively” as 100% truth so I’m still gathering info. Much thanks!

Hmmm. that’s interesting. I’ve never heard about this issue before.
I’m not impartial here… and I always take SIG over GLOCK…
Try do research here:

I have a P320 that was recalled. They replaced the trigger, modified the trigger assy and replaced the stryker and modified the slide to accommodate a difference in the trigger assy. I have 2000 rounds through it since I got it back with 0 issues. Its my favorite range gun! P365 is my EDC.
