I’m about to dip into the world of Sig P320. Is it worth it?

    No. I have seen multiple sigs rust, after only a few weeks, rust to the point of being non-functional, and have heard of probably a dozen similar experiences.

    Its a complex design for a striker fired handgun

    It is accurate and has a good trigger.
    Rust? I bought this P320 in 2014, a few months after it came out. When a friend of mine got his P320 the trigger modification (misfire prevention) done, I didn't like the trigger, so this one has not been modified. I just try not to throw it around. As far as rust? I have yet to see any, but maybe it's defective. I still think it's one of the best modular designed (able to change calibers without buying a new gun) pistols out there.

    I took a HIGHLY upgraded P320 Legion in partial trade last year for some reloading equipment. Pic at bottom of this post.

    It had a TON of upgrades- I don't think that there were any stock parts left. I sold it for over $2500 on gunbroker in July of this last year.

    It ran better than any Glock I've ever owned/fired. It was as accurate as any upgraded G34 I've ever fired.

    The trigger was not exactly amazing when compared to any 1911 I've ever fired, but it was at least 10 Germanic-engineered steps ahead of any Glock.

    My bottom line on P320s: Nice guns. Better than Glocks from a purely shooting/action pov. Becoming more common, still not as common as Glocks. If you like good triggers, and have a 1911, don't bother.

    If you're not a 1911 trigger snob, or if you think Glock triggers are fine (even upgraded glock triggers make me mad) then you will love the P320- especially if you spend a bit of time smoothing it out and upgrading it.

    I like them more than Fn polymer guns. More than glocks... but I still have some glocks because of the ubuiquity.

    Yes, rust.


    The sig also has a rather flimsy ejector that is integral to the chassis, and can be easily damaged.

    I've seen case hardened guns hold up to rust better than a lot of sigs.

    I'd forgive it if it were a fancy blued all steel pistol, but its not. Its a duty grade polymer handgun
    Well, I know plenty of people that own Sigs, myself included, and that's the first I heard of rust issues. Maybe we're just lucky.
