A Comped.. .22lr? The SIG P322 COMP

Apparently not content to let me rag on Springfield alone, for their naming conventions mostly, Sig Sauer decided to launch this Star Trekkian phaser looking blaster into the ether. The Sig Sauer P322 COMP is quite clearly an attempt at a sharp edged, fun, race-gun ready .22.

And team, I think they kinda nailed it.

For as goofy as a comp seems to me on a round as enthusiastically without recoil as a .22lr pistol, this gun does look good. It retains that comfortable grip profile it shares with the X Macro, has 25rd magazines available, and while the speed wracker charging handle thing maybe a bit wild in my opinion, my opinion includes zero steel challenge experience.

I wouldn’t be using this as a training stand in for my P365, but that is what the regular P322 is for.

I would be grabbing this for a fun learner pistol or gamer .22. I would be looking at this if I had a competitive shooter curious progeny, or someone new to firearms who will do well to shoot with the .22 for now with some control and leverage advantages.

Good job, SIG. I laughed at it and then still wanted it when I was done reading.
