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

    I've got two P320's, one in 9mm and one in .45. Both are great IMO, shoot well, accurate, no issues whatsoever and certainly no rust of any type anywhere.

    I've been to LGS several times in the last few weeks, looking for another pistol. But, I leave empty handed everytime. My flock is pretty great and adding another us just another gun.

    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.
    I'm glad you've had luck.

    People have been badmouthing sigs finish quality decades before even the P250 was a thing


    Its an easy fix, get the SS mag release, or constantly apply boesheild or hornady one shot, but it's not something that should be considered acceptable

    Saying people 'bad mouthing' means what? I can probably find people bad mouthing just about anything. If I go just off this thread, it seems a very small percentage.

    I rented a plain full size 9mm at a gun range and loved it. Loved the trigger and accuracy. After looking at a few models I got a X-Carry Compact but for some reason I didn't like it as much as the plain.

    Still haven't decided to sell it or try to upgrade it.

    People complaining, talking ill, the meaning should be pretty clear, if it wasn't, i apologize.

    People have been complaining about sigs finish for decades. A quick google search will bring you results that are as new as today, to as old as the internet.

    I realize I'm only bringing 2 specific examples that i have personally observed, but S&W, Ruger, Glock, HK, Beretta etc have seen the same, or even worse treatment yet do not display the same issues

    (They also dont have the same disappointing CS, but that's a whole nother story)

    Quoted for truth.

    i like sigs. I have a p365 and a p938 (thanks big brother!) and I’ll likely have them for the rest of my life.
    That said, both the rust, and the customer service problems are well known. Not ubiquitous, but not uncommon. Certainly not enough to make me question my choice in edc or range weapons.

    This is the first time I hear about rust on P320. All I heard about are Kimbers and Rugers (my PCC did actually rust on me). That said, I also saw forum post by a guy who managed to rust a Glock with his acidic sweat.

    I think the rust being not a 'common' p320 issue is due to the fact that compared to P365s, I'm betting far fewer of the P320s are edc weapons, and therefore, the heat/humididty/sweat issue doesn't have as many actual examples...

    https://duckduckgo.com/?q=sig+sauer+rust&atb=v1-1&ia=web Most of the sig pistols referenced in that search are P365s, 220s, and 226s.

    I definitely would NOT let fear of rust sway me away from ANY Sig. They may not have 'quite' as stout a finish as Glocks' Tennifer, but they're definitely no slouch.

    AIM Surplus has LEO Trade ins of the full size for $415. Want to throw the new Wilson Combat frame onto it. Pretty sweet pistol for $500.

    Or I can get a NIB version without the night sights and with an extra mag for $450.


    My carry is a Glock 22 w/ 357 Sig conversion barrel, and I’m not really a 9mm guy. Have a CZ75, Glock 19 and a FNP9C, Sig SP2022 and I don’t carry any of them, though none is a bad choice IMO.

    I want to see what the fuss is about the Sig P320. Should I go for it? Maybe I should get rid of the Gen4 G19 which has given me two BTF scars on my face?

    Those who own a P320 or have owned one, what say you?

    IMO, just get it to have one...
    Does it really need to serve a purpose?

    Your G22 in 357 Sig is the much better carry pistol, and you mentioned that "I’m not really a 9mm guy"; so why settle?

    Just buy it to have it and add it to your collection of fine pistols.
    In the current firearm market, its value will just go up and up over the next 5+ years.

    Credit due to where it's due, the slide finish on the Sigs seemed to hold up ALMOST as well as it did on the glocks, and never displayed signs of rust, it was the small bits that didn't hold up, the mag release, slide stop, takedown lever...
