    P320 drop safety issues



    This got sent out today.

    Sig Sauer has identified that there is a defect in the P320 handgun that could cause the weapon system to go off when dropped. The Sig Sauer P320 was approved for primary duty, secondary primary duty, and back-up use. The Firearms Training Center is currently working with Sig Sauer to obtain a solution for the safety issue. Until Sig Sauer is able to find a solution to the safety issue, the Sig Sauer P320 is no longer approved by the ****** Police Department for any use.



    Those officers that currently have a Sig Sauer P320 as a primary duty weapon will have the following two options:



    Option 1 – Go to the Firearms Training Center on Monday, July 31st , during business hours, to be issued a city Sig Sauer P226 and qualify with that weapon.



    Option 2 – Purchase another city approved weapon and respond to the Range on Monday, July 31st , during business hours, to qualify with that weapon.



    Until getting another weapon and qualifying, officers need to practice increased safety with these weapon systems.



    The Firearms Training Center staff is working diligently with Sig Sauer to obtain a solution and will keep officers informed of the status.

    I wonder if this could somehow upset the contract for big Army?

    My thought as well. In any event a bet a few people at Glock are having a drink tonight.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    No testing can work out all the bugs like say the first 10 years of hard use by a million or so users.

    Dang. Better that they acknowledge and (hopefully) offer a fix than the alternative, but this is some major egg in Sig's face.

    I've been enjoying the 320 and really like how it shoots for me, but haven't fully converted from Glocks for carry cause they're well vetted. Try as I might, I just can't quit you, Glock.

    I too wonder about the Army contract - it also makes me wonder why this didn't come up during that testing? Perhaps because they were using manual safety variants and testing with the safety engaged?

    IIRC environmental and drop testing are part of phase 2 - which was planned to be done on the selected pistols.

    I may be wrong but that's my read on some reporting that debunked the claim they didn't finish testing (phase 2) before selection.
