Default P320 "upgrade"

Anyone send theirs in yet? I'm going to dump the pistol and debating on whether sending it in and selling it when I get it back or just dumping it now. I love my PPQ M2 and VP9, so the sig will no longer be shot anyways

I got on the waiting list like the second day. Still haven't gotten the email. I called sig a few days ago and they said it should happen by December. Anybody know what their turnaround times are like once you get the email? I've got the gun and 4 xchange kits going in.

The RMA I got said 4-6 weeks for return. I wouldn't be surprised if they gave themselves a wide margin as they've been quite speedy in the past. Just be patient and watch your email for the RMA.

You get an immediate upgrade by trading it for a G17.

I feel for everyone in this situation. Simply cannot believe the gun has this issue. How could they develop it and go this far with it without knowing it. And I am a sig fan.

Although firing when you drop the gun could have been helpful to the French

I have received my P-320s back from Sig in a matter of 3-4 weeks. The new trigger is superb. It is better than the P-10C and Zev Glock triggers. They have done a good job, and no I don't work for Sig.

Cheers...Rich S

I was able to do just that before the videos of the drop fires came out. Traded straight across for a Gen 4 G17 that was unfired. Whew! I scored big time on that one.

Steve,
why not just sell/trade it as is- I still see the used p320 in LGS for $500 to 600 with the original triggers?

if you're not going to keep it why bother with the effort to mail & wait for sig to "upgrade" it..

__--

fyi,

I sent 2 of mine off on the same day with back to back RMA#s and Tracking #s

one has already made it back and the other ?? (the 1st one arrived over a week ago)
I've not shot it yet- plan to this coming week

I still haven't even gotten the email on the 2nd one saying its been shipped..

apparently they just shuffle these boxed pistols as the come into an unorganized pile & my 1st one somehow made it onto the bench very quick..

I sent the 3rd one out a couple days ago as the RMA#/shipping label email just hit my inbox for it.. ~2 months behind the others
(all 3 were registered on the 2nd day of the "upgrade" registration being available)

I sure as hell wouldn't bother with sending it in if your plan is to simply dump it anyway. The way I see it, anyone wanting one of these pistols even with all of the bad press about them is likely willing to endure the hassle themselves. I'd find some sucker, and trade it off to them before they all wise up and realize that they're seeking junk.

Just sent my 3rd one back (RX model) this morning in the mail.
The new Trigger is just like the MHS trigger; Sweet and alot better than the stock P320.
It is one of the reasons it did so well during the MHS trials... regardless of all the 12 yr olds crying and whining even thought they never seen, handled, or shot the MHS Sig.

exactly

- hell most people that have spent any time with it agreed the stock p320 trigger was/is better than most striker fired guns on the market including glock.

and now the drop fire fiasco all the glocksters are all climbing out of their holes again waving a checkered flag
when before all they had was -"they copied glock" , "but the bore axis, wauhh"

Got my P320 back today. Looks the same, feels the same, trigger is about the (good) same. Imagine it will largely shoot the same. Feel better now that it's done though, and with a five workday turnaround I am impressed. Bonus is they give you a 25% discount card for your next purchase on Sig's website.

Watch their sale section on the sig website. They regularly have p320 mags for $8.99. I have a box full of them in different calibers still in the factory packaging.

All I see today are the .380. They had 22lr, 45, and 40/357 a couple weeks back.

I received notification from Sig yesterday that my pistol has been upgraded and shipped. I shipped it to them on the 7th, so it looks like about a 2 week actual turn around. Considering the volume of these they must be doing, that is pretty impressive.

I shipped mine out last Thursday. It conceals well and is very accurate. I'll shoot it when I get it back and make my decision on whether or not to keep it then.

I was going to ditch my P320 until I shot it again and realized I shot it better than any other striker fired pistol. I’m keeping it. It really is a good pistol once they fix the stupid drop issue. It is one of the most innovative pistols of modern times. Yes I do not like the bore axis and bulk, but I shoot it well and is what it matters.

Got mine back today. The trigger is a definite improvement. Short take up and a long but less creepy break.

I keep checking in to the sig website for stuff to use the 25% off coupons I got with the return of my pistols

a black leather OWB holster isn't really my style but at $25 it might be for some

The best way to upgrade a P320 is turn it into a Glock 19, although the 17 previously suggested would do the trick as well

I'm still waiting to receive a shipping label for my P320 Compact. Kinda wish I had held off buying one until Sig finished designing the thing.

Sig's not the only company that does that crap. Glock's up to gen 5, M&P have a gen 2, Palmetto State's up to Gen2 on their AKs and AR-10s and Ruger is up to MK IV. Sometimes companies just have rolling updates and don't explicitly give the updated models a new generation or model number. Kel-tec has been steadily changing their KSG. If you have an older one, you can send it to them and get all the updated parts for free.

I think Sig's just catching more shit about this one because the update is a safety issue and they refuse to admit it. And they're going about fixing everybody's guns rather slowly.

What? They received mine on a Friday, and I had it back by the next Friday. That's pretty damn fast if you ask me. Others have reported the same.

Maybe once they get your gun they get it back to you quick. But its a waiting list to even get your gun to them and I've been on it for several months.

Well Sig has so many guns they don’t support, promised caliber conversions and recalls. I will say that sig is much better than most though.

Yes, I know. However, when looking at all of the different slide cuts made, extractor upgrade, now the drop safety upgrade, it seems that there have been a lot of changes in a relatively short period of time. Hopefully Sig gets the design to a stable condition at some point.

Got it back today. I do notice the trigger is slightly better than the old one. Will have to test fire really soon. Reset seems almost like the PPQ

I have not had the chance to try a PPQ. How does it compare to the reset of the P320?

I can't wait till Steyr sues Sig for patent infringement for stealing Steyr's internal chassis system patent . I hope it bankrupts sig . I hope all the generals who are planning on getting kickbacks from sig will be sadly disappointed . Our troops deserved the best sidearm extant , and that be Glock !
