Sig P320 Issues

We have been aware of this issue for some time, but it looks like Sig finally admitted that they have an issue.  Dallas PD pulled it from service.  This may be a bigger issue.  If you have a Sig P320 and carry it concealed (especially AIWB) I would make sure you gun is not affected with this particular problem.  If it is, please stop carrying it.

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 Dallas 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. 


The above photo is from the Sig P320 manual.  Not carry with a round chambered? What?

Until that is out of the manual and until Sig fixes and has a proven track record of supplying fixed P320 to customers, it will be a no go for me.
