P320 X-VTAC

    SIG SAUER’s P320 handgun line is the darling of the firearms industry right now. Fresh off of winning the new pistol contract with the US Army, the pistols have garnered a lot of attention from the shooting public lately.

    One of the newest variations is the P320 X-VTAC. This new gun was shown at the SHOT Show back in January and is available exclusively through Talo Distributors. A sharp eye will recognize the gun immediately as a P320 variant. However, there are a number of changes from the base pistols sold by SIG SAUER. Here’s a quick rundown on the gun should you be interested in picking one up from your local gun shop.

    X-Series Grip Frame – The X-VTAC model uses the X-series polymer frame. It has an extended beavertail on the backside and a relatively high undercut behind the trigger guard. The undercut is nice considering the relatively (for a striker fired pistol) high bore axis. It allows you to get your hand a little farther up on the grip.

    Straight X-Series Trigger – This is a semi-custom flat trigger that is preferred by some shooters.

    Slide Cuts and Color – The slide has a variety of cuts to give the gun a more custom look. This includes “enhanced serrations” and “slide lightening cuts.” The gun is finished in a brownish color similar to flat dark earth.

    Sights – The VTAC day/night sights are standard on this pistol. A fiber optic pipe is on top with tritium vials underneath. This makes for 6-dot sights, though some shooters have said you never see the tritium sights as the fiber optics are so bright in most conditions.

    The guns come with three 17 round magazines. The suggested retail price of this gun is $918, and it should begin shipping around the first of July.
