P320 Ka-boom? Ian explains things.

I’m a P320 fan. Specifically I like the aluminum AXG versions, I’m fairly ambivalent on the other models. But the internet is abuzz with a current lawsuit against the arms giant and there are a few photos of guns having fragged.

Here’s the thing. If the condition would frag any pistol, like an obstructed barrel or a double charged round, that isn’t an issue with the SIG specifically.

Ian over at Forgotten Weapons has a fairly objective 20 minutes of information on some of the current issues with the P320. The drop issue from the past, the current lawsuit against firing inadvertently (which happened to Glock too, they are the most popular pistol in the world), and the out of battery firing issue.

The P320 made it to over 1,000,000 units very quickly. It owns a massive share of the modern pistol market. There will likely be problems with any machine. There Beretta 92 and the Glock both receive their share of misplaced hate to this day.

I for one am not hanging up my 320 quite yet.
