Sig Sauer P320

Shot the Sig Sauer P320 today for the first time.  Good shot groups.  I am having to teach myself to shoot right handed (as I am to have my left hand operated on in December and will be out of commission for anywhere from six months to a year).  I am left eye dominant.  Even with glasses looking at a sight picture with my right eye is a blur.  I digress.

The P320 is an interesting pistol.  The only serial number part of the pistol is the firing mechanism.  This means that the caliber, the type of pistol (full, compact, sub compact) can be changed.  It is a striker fired pistol and is one of several pistols being considered to be the next pistol of the U S Armed Forces.  Its one draw back it has no safety, however there is an optional one, which I suspect will make it more acceptable to the military market.

The weapon shot well.  When shot right handed, it shot to the left (remember I am left eye dominant with a stigmatism in my right eye).  Shot groups were reasonabily well grouped at 10 meters.  Shooting left handed, it shot spot on with very tight groups.  Trigger pull is heavy, but for a pistol I want that when there is no safety.  Controls are well laid out.  It can easily be converted to a left handed pistol.  Best of all disassembly is a breeze.  Lock the the slide to the rear, turn the slide release 90 degrees, release the slide it move forward to clear the frame.  Remove the spring assembly, pop the barrel, it is disassembled.

On a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a first time 7.5.
