I'm committed to it, particularly as a long-term test bed for the full-size 17 round Check-Mate magazines, and have several decent holsters (SIG/Mitch Rosen leather OWB and Olen kydex IWB), but these days it's taking a bit of a back seat to my Glocks, especially the G19 that I'm testing with the Leupold DeltaPoint Micro RDS.

    I too am a bit wary of the short, relatively light and soft-breaking trigger. More than any other SFA pistol that I run, it reminds me of a single-action pistol sans manual safety... My best advice is that if you're running a P320 for duty and/or defensive carry, you REALLY need to be thoroughly familiar with the triggerpull characteristics; even more so if you're in a threat management situation.

    Tomorrow I'll be comparatively running and testing the P320 and the G19 with their respective RDS; that could be interesting.

    Best, Jon
    Would be interested to read about that side-by-side.

    They should just update the 320 to actually be an upsized P365, then all that suddenly disappears, and I can feel safe carrying a 320!

    There is just too much noise to feel good about a 320 for carry.
    Yep. After I get rid of my RXP, and after recently shedding my M&P's and 1911's in 45, I'll be down to a similar and smaller set of primary pistols.

    1. 365's
    2. Glocks (19/45)
    3. 1911's in 9mm just because they are my favorite pistols to shoot...ever. Not much for carry anymore although I still occasionally carry my DW TCP in an OWB.

    At this point, the Macro gets me so close to a full size that I'm ok with 95% of my pistol work being with a Macro...carry and range/class use.

    The very short travel needed for the P320 trigger to make the gun fire is an issue for me. I remember Ernest Langdon was talking about the progression of striker fired pistol triggers in a video a while back and said the desire is to have a striker fired trigger as close to a 1911 as possible, but with no safety. Imagine someone carrying around a 1911 with the safety off and hammer back with a round in the chamber. People would think you are crazy.

    As for the M17/M18 I am at a major military training facility in Texas every month and we have not had any NDs with pistols. At this point I am not so sure guns are just going off, but the triggers are getting actuated somehow. I don't know really. In the end I was all in on the P320 a few years back and moved on. I did keep an M17 just to have.

    Don't know exactly what's happening with all these ND's either, but these posts are about where I'm at. You have basically a single-action-like trigger, with a short and light press, and no other external safety mechanism. It's not really surprising that we'd see a higher incidence of ND's (or AD's, if we're not blaming the end user) from this setup.

    Both.

    Important variable: M17/M18 and contract guns are built and accountable to spec(s), 320s in your big-box and LGS are built to whatever. We lack details in what's reported by media, and lack everything in those incidents handled between citizen/officer/agency and the manufacturer directly.

    Most common problem with mil M17/M18 seems to be loose/lost rear sights.

    Are the 17 round Macro magazines the same as the 17 round magazines for the P320?


    Best, Jon

    No they are different bodies and width.

    No.

    Macro mags are just longer P365 series mags with a different means of attachment for the baseplate.

    They fit and function in all P365 series guns.
