    This is a great thread-both for the OP in his query and for the rest of us already on our journey.

    If you perceive a significant requirement of carrying and using a gun (presumptively on duty) as...

    Too obvious for me to ignore.....#6; VCD Grips complaining about sharp edges???

    Tongue in cheek, David-your grips are great, and you are including sandpaper with 'em to knock down the crater edges...

    The key things now seem to be:

    1. Determining is the P320 is a pre-2019 gun;

    2. If pre-2019 (and arguably, pre 1 June 2019) has the gun had the VUP performed;

    3. If its had the VUP...

    The Colt 1911 Ayoob was using as an exemplar was literally a 70 Series Colt 1911-not the 70 Series Reproduction (which was, and still is an excellent gun, but Colt morphed it into the current...

    I concur with what's been commented so far; it appears to be a late production organizational order or organizational order surplus. It appars to have the later-production slanted receiver dustcover...

    I had way more than 2 non-ignitions with the contemporaty 145 gr .357 Silvertips. I offered them the opportunity to send me a larger quantity to test, and haven't heard back. I'm simplhy...

    I was really unimpressed withj how current production .357 Silvertips ran; I had far too many light strikes with it with my Ruger GP100, with a full strength factory mainspring. I've switched to...

    Too little information from us to glean much; key things: Date of P320 production, had the gun undergone the VUP if applicable to production date, holster used?

    I've tried it and am impressed; currently running it on my Gen 3 G21. Definitely assists in running, better than nothing at all or with just a mountain bike inner tube segment. Another tip I had...

    I had a P229 DAK, one of the "first issue" ones with the lighter spring (apparently some break-in was required, which irritated enough purcharsers/organizations that SIG issued a heavier spring and...

    Nice write-up. We haven't heard much from Tam here recently. I hope she's ok, and hasn't become p-f jaded.

    That's a pretty impressive video-both in terms of message, product, and use. Much more in-depth than most advertising.

    I have a set of Hogue G10s for the 1911. They are exceptionally grippy, and aesthetically quite nice-but for overall grippiness, I found the VCDs are a bit better, and I really like the thumbresat...
