Beretta did the same thing. Yet people tout the M9 is as the best handgun in the world, despite it only beating the P226 out by price. I don’t understand why people act like the P320 is such an inferior choice in a market that is completely saturated by plastic double stack 9s, when in reality, it can easily sit on the podium.
P320/M17 is a great gun. That doesn’t mean that Sig get’s a pass for it not being drop-fire safe on release, but in it’s current state, it’s one of the best handgun on the market in my opinion. I shoot an M9 for work, I’ve shoot Glock 17s and 19s, but I own two P320s, and I can honestly say its my preferred handgun.
Now excuse me while I go build a pillow fort to keep out all the haters.
