At the Sig P320?

After reading the September 2015 1St Freedom, I'm beginning to look
more closely at the Sig P320 Compact as a possible carry piece. It is almost
the same size as the Sig P220 Compact (except for the half inch taller
in height) and carries three more rounds in the magazine (single stack
v double stack in the 320).

I laid hands on one today and am VERY impressed with the trigger. It is
a very short take-up, short throw and short reset. While it is rated as five
pound pull weight, it doesn't feel that heavy. I've just got to find someone
that has a P320C, so I can try one out.

One other item is the cost. In looking at them in three different retailers,
the 5280 Armory in Denver, the Sportsman's Warehouse and Cabella's,
the Armory was lowest at $540, then Sportsman's at $550, then there
is Cabella's at full retail. That would put it out the door, WITH a box of
premium ammo AND taxes for a few pennies less than $600. :eek:

After just reading multiple reviews of the P320 and handling it,
I'M IMPRESSED! ;)

WHY'D that ding-dang furnace have to go out now? :rolleyes:
(actually, just replacing it before Winter gets here)

Yeah I am. Only in 45acp. I've been happy with my Glock 19 for 9mm but might want to try 45. But the GP100 1708 is also calling to me. Decisions.....

Oh by the way, my LGS had a full size 45 for $495+tax. Not the night sight version though.

Good price, and GOOD caliber!
Best I've found around here is $540 for the non nights, but I have one
other place to look. . . . . . Now if I could find the .45ACP > WITH < nights,
for that price, I'd be all over that, furnace or not. ;)

I would buy any sig without worry.
That seems to be the common theme in virtually all of the reviews.
a.k.a. This is a SIG, with all implications.

The review that Ayoob did was, IIRC, 1,000 rounds with multiple people
shooting it and they had one failure, of a "reload", that had a good primer
strike. Ayoob said he considered it a failure of the reload rather than the
gun, and I'm inclined to believe him. :cool:

The part that I like best is each of the reviews I've read said they took it
out of the box, made sure there were no barrel obstructions, and shot it.
No prep, no cleaning, no special lubrication, just shot it.
Can you say reliability? :D

WANT that .45. Want, Want, Want! ;)

Yeah, I want a 45 compact with night sights. I expect it will run about $600 out-the-door.

@dcdixon - you find the coolest avatars, dude! :cool: :D

Only if your taxes are way below 8%.
Nights are $75-$80, then add taxes. :eek:

They are a little cheaper when factory installed. I wanna say I've seen the 45c with NS for $565 somewhere but I'd have to look again as I'm not ready to buy yet. It's unusual that the 45s are cheaper than the 9s.

This one would be a little under $600 for me after shipping+FFL which seems a little too good to be true:
