I am taking a wait and see attitude. I am skeptical of the problem. The "Fix" was hastily drawn up. Going to wait and see in the fix is worst than the perceived problem. In the meantime, I will continue to not drop a loaded firearm.

I guess the voluntary upgrade is only available for normal civilian guns at this point. My serial number makes them spit out
Quote:
It seems your serial number is associated with SIG SAUER product specific to Law Enforcement, Government or International programs. Please refer to the FAQ for more information.
And the FAQ linked to says
Quote:
If you are a U.S. or Canadian law enforcement agency, a Canadian Consumer or an individual who purchased on the Armed Professional Program (APP) or Individual Officer Program (IOP):
Because of the unique circumstances involving these customers and needed additional logistical planning, there will be additional information and an online form available in the in the coming days.

If you are a domestic government agency/entity or individual who purchased on the Armed Professional Program (APP):
There will be an online form available in the near future for Government/Federal Law Enforcement to register (including those individuals who purchased via the APP). Additional information regarding this program will be made available in the coming days.

For all of you guys who can't be bothered to read the thread, here's another bit you won't read:

Sig-Sauer has officially begun the P320 "fix it" process:

P320 Voluntary Upgrade Program - Sig Sauer

3 forms submitted & Awaiting the Reply emails from Sig on the next step...

the note after each for was "submitted" was; the reply email from from Sig on the next part of the process would include a prepaid shipping label & instructions,

-however it may take several weeks for the initial email, due to the volume and an additional 4 to 6 weeks (probably more like 4 to 6 months) for the return of the pistol after received by sig for the upgrades.

Another +1 for Glock. When you need parts/service it's readily available, no need to wait for months on the factory to get their shit together.

You should really remove those rose colored glasses before you drool all over the rest of us.

Should Glock have a unforeseen issue like this one arise, the processing / resolution time would likely be the same, if not longer, due to the market saturation of the product.

I'll gladly adopt any of your "dangerous" 320's and will compensate you for the trouble. I already have three of them but will gladly take in an "orphan" or two.

Lol, you guys.

It's okay. I was top shooter for the AK Files Run N' Gun competition with a P320. I will still buy one, and I will gladly take in an orphan as stated above. Lol

Yeah I'm sure the reduced 147 grain handloads had nothing to do with it. At least I was shooting +p out of a compact like a man.

Come at me bro

I was slower than him by a little bit and made a few less hits but for the gun and ammo I was using it was a lot of fun and definitely seek to incorporate more next year.

Uh huh. Just because I can't afford the ammo you can. Lol, reload your ammo for the shoot and you can have whatever advantage you want!

I got 124 gr. +P winchester nato 9mm for 189 shipped to the front door, my handloads even with lead aren't but maybe 50 to 60 dollars per 1k cheaper.



Rifle ammo you can really save, pistol is kind of a wash, even if I reloaded 10k rounds this year, saving 500 for all that time is a waste to me.


But we'll see what we can do about some ammo donations to the ballwater foundation for under achieving youths.
