mlk18 Posted July 8, 2018 Share Posted July 8, 2018 (edited) I am not here to rip on the P320 or convince you not to buy one, just passing on my personal experience. I have been a long time M&P fan and have several of them in all shapes and sizes. Eventually I got bored and decided to see if there was something better out there. I picked up a P320C and became a fan very quickly. The trigger was very good, the ergos were very good, and it was very accurate/reliable. Everything you want in a gun. The modularity was cool, it was also however overrated. Who wants a single gun and a bunch of parts? Not me. I want multiple guns. I eventually owned a full size, carry, compact, compact FDE, and subcompact all in 9mm. Yes they all had the weird dry fire double click, no I did not notice it one bit when actually shooting the guns. I hate Siglite night sights with a passion so I swapped them all out for Ameriglos and Dawsons. I eventually started carrying the compact as my EDC. Life was good. Especially since I got into the P320 before the Army, the Oklahoma State Police, and the Texas DPS. I got into them when you could actually buy grip modules and spare parts. Then the drop safety issue came into being, followed by the voluntary upgrade. Did not bother me in the least. I am not careless with my guns and the chance of my dropping it just right were so infinitesimally small that it really was a non-issue. I continued to carry my P320C. I did however decide to send them in for the upgrade, if nothing else to retain some resale value and mitigate liability if I did sell them. That's when I discovered that Sig's customer service was like dealing with a drunken Maxine Waters who just read a mean tweet from the POTUS. I am going to spare you all the details, but it included a total of 9 months of waiting, a lost gun, more excuses than Hillary Clinton, a few desperate and dishonest attempts to blame FedEx, a repaired gun that no long worked properly, a gun that came back sans the sights, customer service that would make Comcast laugh out loud, a trigger that was suddenly 3lbs heavier, and one lost customer. It was even more maddening to read about people having the opposite experience while I was suffering through mine. Every gun maker produces a lemon, most end up with a recall at some point, and every gun maker fails a customer at some point. It was just apparently my turn at Sig and they unloaded on me with both barrels. If you love Sig and the P320, then more power to you. Like I said this was just about my experience. I still like the P320 and still consider it to be a very good firearm. But the company itself and I have parted ways for good. My old M&P's came back out and went right back into the carry rotation, in fact I found that I had a new appreciation for the low bore axis and ergos. Somehow spending some time with the P320 made me a better shooter with those S&W's too. Once in hand and proven reliable all of my Sig's but one went up for sale, and I picked up some M2.0 Smith & Wesson's to replace them (a good move on part as it turns out). The one Sig I didn't sell had to go back for more work. More frustratingly slow work with horrible communication and delivery issues. Now that P320F just sits in the safe and will continue to. It's my range toy reminder that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. Seeing all the issues Sig is now having with the P365 has made me feel even better about my decision. YMMV. Edited July 8, 2018 by mlk18 Proof read it twice before posting, still had to edit. Grrrrr. 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
