WINNER: Sig Sauer P320
For the SIG fans out there, you can do a little victory dance. This super accurate, polymer handgun was chosen over the best of the best to become the next-gen “official” Military handgun.
So let’s take a quick look at it. Like all the other guns on this list except the CZ, and unlike most everything else in the SIG lineup, the P320 is striker fired.
Aside from this being a super accurate and well-made polymer semi-auto, the fact that it’s a striker fired Sig Sauer might just be P320 most noteworthy feature.
If you like other Sigs AND you like Glock-style handguns, you’ll probably love the P320.
This striker fired Sig has a very similar feel to the Glock. The traditional higher bore axis that Sig shooters are used to isn’t as much a factor with the P320. Still, the slide grip is a bit narrower than its competitors.
What the P320 brings to the table is Sig Sauer’s exceptional quality and reliability. It’s also a modular system, allowing you to move the trigger assembly from frame to frame, allowing you to test out the compact, full size, etc.
Did the US Military get it right?
