Dry Spell over? P320C 45's

Looks like a sprinkling of P320C-45's are making it into the marketplace. I've seen at least 2 in the last week that have born on dates of 12-2016. Pricing doesn't seem to have changed.

A few of us got some as they came back into stores a month or two back. For me...it didn't go well and I ended up parting with it.

I bought a P320 Full .45 three weeks ago from the Sig Academy Pro Shop. It is the new Gen 2 version with forward facing slide stop.

Put around 200 rounds through it with no issues and I like it so far. The medium grip is a bit small for my big hands though and I'll likely get a large. I swapped grips with the P320 Compact .45 I bought last May (a Gen 1 BTW) and it's now the gun I pick first when going to the range.

My wonder would be Did Sig Upgrade the Frame for that Calibers Higher Recoil?
If not that could be a problem down the road.
I think Springfield had that problem with the XDs in that Caliber.

I don't believe they did. If it will hold up to the 40 and 357sig, it will hold up to the low pressure 45acp.

YASSSSSSSSSSSS Finally the Gen2 frame and updated slide stop -

Now if only they would come out with the Compact frames updated in Gen2 so I could get one for mine

Take a look at the video from Osage County Guns that shows, and describes, the differences. Lots of pictures, and good narrative, so you can identify the differences.

Took a closer look for you. The born on date was 12-28-2016.

Take down lever is the slimmer, updated, version. Grip shell has the additional groove for the slimmer take down lever. Slide catch is the older rear facing slide catch. Not sure what you call it, Gen 1.5??

Sorry, probably not what you wanted to hear. My guess is that Sig is working through the old stock. Just like they seemed to have done on the 9/357/40 models.

Great video! Shows the difference between Gen 1 & 2 as well as the procedure for swapping out the slide stop. Thanks for posting the link!

But there is hope that they are making new stock of the Gen 2 frames with the Full size one above

I called Sig a few weeks ago and they told me they didn't even have a run of the new shells made for the 45's so this gives me hope I can update my C45 soon

P320 "Carry" version now on Gunbroker - With Gen2 frame/slide catch, and 10 round magazines -

Now I really want a Carry frame and 10 round mags, that would truly be best of both worlds - Although my Compact is nice, I don't think I'll ever CCW the 320C45 - just too heavy compared to my G19/G26 -
