SIG’s New P320 Air Pistol

SIG P320 Air Pistol

One of the more popular guns of recent introduction is the SIG P320. A lot of people have been raving about these guns since their introduction, and the company has been successful at getting these into the holsters of police officers at numerous law enforcement agencies. In fact, the sheriff’s office in a county next to mine recently traded all of their Glock pistols for the new P320 handguns and it seems the deputies are quite happy with the change.

Building on that success, SIG is now offering an air pistol version of the P320.

Part of the company’s Advanced Sport Pellet (ASP) line, the air powered P320 throws .177 caliber projectiles from a 30-round magazine. The gun’s weight and trigger pull are identical to the real thing, so you can get supplemental practice with a backyard or garage range for a fraction of the cost of putting centerfire rounds into the backstop of a commercial range.

The guns have a reciprocating slide for increased realism. Also, the pistols have an accessory rail so you can practice with your weapon light.

Two versions of the P320 are available: a full size in black and a full size in coyote tan. No word if the company has any plans on introducing compact versions of the gun at a later time. Both of these pistols sell for $119.99 each.

    I would like to buy an airsoft version for force on force training but none are available. Si, you listening?

    • SIK

      Cybergun (?) should hold the Airsoft licensing of SIG.

      • d

        Thanks, but they don’t have one either

  • GeoJammy

    You have got to be kidding me – this is the best SIG can offer for the SHOT show?? Wow, times they are a-changin’… 🙁

    • K-Gunner

      Maybe they can introduce some more rainbow colored, diamond plate finish, and tribal patterned guns instead. That would be awesome!

    • TechnoTriticale

      They might have secretly contracted a design/build to arm Hillary’s Imperial Guards – 327,000 integrally suppressed smartguns chambered in 10.7mm Deplorable.

      Bad bet, and now they have nothing to sell.

      These have been available for a while. I am lookin’ into buying a CZ 75 airgun for cheap training at home.

      • mazkact

        I have the Tanfoglio “match” Co2 which is a close analog for my CZ-75 and clones. It is really nice but I would prefer one without the reciprocating slide as this feature makes these Co2 hogs. Blow back is cool I reckon but it is not worth the wasted Co2.

        • iksnilol

          I was lookin’ into them Proton X2 cartridges, they are HPA cartridges that you can fill with a pump and they fit regular 12 gram CO2 guns.

          If I can get at least one mags worth of air out of them it’d be sorta worth it in the long run. Though a CO2 cartridge even with blowback is enough for like 2-3 mags.

          • mazkact

            I get two good mags from mine so about 34 good shots. On the third things slow down quite a bit then fizzles.

          • iksnilol

            So 2 mags before having to pump up again? That’s with blowback? Then that could make it profitable.

            Get one spare mag and two of those cartridges and I should be A-okay, sure, I’d need to load both mags twice after emptying them but should be good enough for most drills. I oughta keep that in mind. I am currently looking at the ASG CZ 75 (actually licensed by CZ) and it looks good. Weight is close as well. Though I am a bit concerned about accuracy, I am thinking if I could fit a rifled barrel and use copper BBs I might see an improvement in accuracy. Because I remember reading a review saying it is a 10 meter pistol, and I’d like to train at 15 meters (25 would be ideal, but not really feasible).

            The HPA is sorta important to me, since Norway is pretty cold so CO2 wouldn’t be really useful most of the year.

          • Data Venia

            Thanks for the heads up. I was hoping there would be some sort of merger between the PCP and the CO2 worlds.

            If they last long enough for me to break even that’s damn tempting.

          • mazkact

            I feel I get the most bang for buck from S&W Co2 M&P pistols in .177 bb but then again I do live on the Gulf coast of Texas,almost always above 70 F.The hard double action only triggers on the M&P’s are like leg weights on a runner. I do like single stroke pneumatic pellet handguns as they are the same in most any temp and some will shoot extremely well.

          • iksnilol

            Aaah, you shoot CO2, you haven’t tried a HPA conversion?

            To me it looks like the only choice

  • Martin Grønsdal

    This is a disaster waiting to happend!

    what if someone loads 9 mm into the magazine, and people will die!

    we should therefore ban all handguns.

    • CA

      Correct.

  • thedonn007

    I hope the 30 round mags will work in my P226 ASP.

  • Disarmed in CA

    30 shots is about all you’ll get from the CO2 cartridge, and they will noticeably slow after half the mag if you are attempting rapid fire.

    • mazkact

      Non blowback analog bb pistols are a better choice.

      • Disarmed in CA

        But not as cool!

    • Wow!

      Propane GBB airsoft are the best. Propane is cheap, you can find it anywhere, and if it is airsoft it is good for force on force.
