Grip Angle

I love my 320, but wish it had a luger style grip angle. Will Sig Sauer ever come out with a grip module with a less vertical grip angle? Wouldn't that be cool?

We' each have our own likes or dislikes. I like the P320 grip angle just fine and wouldn't have bought it with a Luger/Glock grip angle. The Luger itself is one of the best looking handguns ever made, but they don't feel good in my hand with that far forward grip angle. Since I'm a shooter rather than collector I never had any interest in owning one.

Since I'm a striker fire fan, I've owned and shot various Glock models and calibers for 20 years and currently have five of them. But, I have always disliked the grip angle. Always. Now that we have other wonderful choices with better grip angles and ergonomics, my Glock buying days are past. The P320 is one of those better choices, for me.

OP, because of Glock's success everyone and his brother has jumped on the polymer framed striker fired handgun bandwagon. I don't keep track of all gun developments like some people, but I don't see other manufacturers emulating the Glock grip angle with their new offerings like the 320, PPQ, VP9, FNS or others. I very much doubt Sig will do so either.

Just my opinion.

I hope not. Like others have said, I rather detest the grip angle of a Luger or Glock, and that is why I won't own a Glock.

Actually, it is not just the grip angle of the Glock, but the "Glock hump" - that exaggerated palm swell low down on the back strap that I dislike. The combination of the two makes Glocks point unnaturally to me.

If SIG had gone that route with the P320, I wouldn't have bought one. If that is what you want, buy a Glock, or perhaps look at a Steyr.

A Walther PPQ will give you exactly what you are looking for. It's a awesome gun.

You really can't go wrong with any of the top shelf strikers. PPQ, P320, VP9, Glock.

Meh

I look at the P320 (any configuration) and see that grip angle, and the high bore axis and my mind says... "THERE'S the beef!"

Personally I think there is no more natural feeling or pointing gun one can hold than the age old 1911. Muzzle feels like I'm pointing my index finger and just lines up perfectly.

Matt Helm, I like your screen name. No only am I old enough to remember the Matt Helm movies, but old enough to also have read the books by Donald Hamilton.

The movies were pretty good for the spy flicks of that time and I liked Dean Martin in just about anything. However, he did not play Matt Helm as I visualized him from the books. The books were quite good and I read them all.

Of course, Matt Helm might be your real name.
