I have felt the apex flat trigger and that may be something I do eventually. Thank you again for all the encouragement!

Despite the fact that on their website describing SIG sights a #8 front and rear is recommended for 9mm pistols, it seems SIG has been shipping new 9mm pistols with a variety of sight combinations.

Switching to a #8 front should move your groups up a little.

I target shoot my PPQ M2 way better than my 320 but I've had the PPQ a lot longer. Time will tell I guess.

More of the same advice but when I switched from my G19 to the 320 my accuracy was ****. Part of the problem was I didn't realize how to correctly use the combat site picture but I think it was also just me getting used to the gun. Months later I am much happier with my accuracy.

That's the spirit son, d amn good attitude you've adopted there ! Just get on paper, forget about the bulls-eye shooting.
I'm happy as a pig in slop to get anywhere on paper myself.

If it's going left point right and vise versa, going low or high point in the opposite way. Take anything you can get arm, leg, the gonads it's still better than nothing right.

Good luck to you.

I learned something amazing recently, all you have to do is look at the front sight, seriously! Your rear sight and target should be kind of blurry while you focus on your front sight. I know it sound obvious but it actually works. Having dots on the rear sight is a mistake.

Also, try to dedicate your whole range session to one firearm.

I've had my P320C for 10 days now and my last visit to the range my first mag had 14 in the 10 circle and 1 in the 9 circle at 7 yards. I didn't think that was too bad for an 81 year old man. Shoots better than any of my 238's or 938's. Now to get better scores at 10 yards.

As hard as it is for me to say...because I loved my P320C 9mm from the first shot...it's also possible that the gun and you just aren't a good match. No shame in that, it happens a lot, and I as well as others have gone through guns and lost some money finding guns we like more than others. Definitely give it some more practice, but if you feel like you have to force it, or it's unenjoyable or very difficult to shoot it well compared to others, another gun may be a better choice. We all have our little preferences....there are a lot of great choices out there these days.

Give it some time. My best shooting guns are my Croatian sensations aka Springfield XDm. I have four of them and shoot them better than all the other pistols I have. I added a P320sc and P320rx to my collection and I have been getting better with them. In fact tomorrow I will be taking just the two P320's to the range to run about 300 rounds through them. I'm 50/50 on weather or not I'm going to keep them. I keep telling myself to sell everything but the XDm's but I cant bring myself to do that just yet.

I bought my second Walther CCP because it just fits my grip perfectly. i don't know which of my Sigs it will replace because I'm a Sig Man and I love all of mine. I need to find a cure for Sig "gas". Some guns just seem to fit better than the others.

There may be a number of causes as to why your accuracy with the 320 does not meet your expectations. Since you are satisfied with your groups with the Shield and XD, that suggests either sights, trigger control, or fit of the 320 to your hand. It sounds like you have the basics for shooting accurately as evidenced by your performance with the XD and Shield. As some have said some pistols just don't fit a shooter either with the trigger or grip.. In my case that's a Glock. It not a natural fit but I can shoot it accurately. it's just not the best gun for me

We can adapt to any gun when shooting and shoot well but it's always a good idea to eliminate any of the variables that can affect accuracy. Hang in there and practice however, if over time you are still shooting more accurately with your other pistols, the 320 may not fit you.

FWIW my sig 938 and my glock 19 are both combat sight picture (both night sights). I do have a 1911 which is six o clock. At 28ft which is what I normally shoot it doesn't really matter. I suppose at 50 or 75 ft combat might take up a good bit of the target but I rarely shoot that far out with anything but my 22 pistol.

My suggestion is the same as others put around 300 rounds through it and see if you still are unaccurate. Then bench it and if it's the gun and not you - call sig an send it in.

Warms me bones..

Remind me of the 90 something year old who put down a home-invader last year with a .357 magnum that could even crack the wrist bones of a 50 something year old.

Hey all,
Made a few minor upgrades to my p320 and wanted to update this thread and my opinion. I installed the apex flat faced trigger, and a large grip module, which makes the trigger reach perfect for me. Now the pistol is everything i hoped it would be!! I am shooting it just as well if not better than anything else I have and I love it just as much as I hoped i would! I'm not sure if this is due more to the flat trigger or the larger grip, or both, but it definitely works for me now!
Thanks for all the encouragement!

Glad to hear it is getting better for you.

Just as a point of reference; I use my P320's for carry duty and range duty. However, I also regularly shoot my P228 and P229c, and I have a few Beretta's that see range time.

I have to adjust my shooting to each one as the grip, triggers and manual of arms is slightly different between them. I find that when I shoot my P320RX and my M9A3 head to head it helps me be able to transition more quickly. When I tend to take the P320 out a lot for combat training, then do a session with my DA/SA's I shoot them like **** for a bit until I adjust.

This was a big reason why I started that thread on switching over entirely (but the guys here talked me off that ledge).

I am probably a better shooter when I vary it up a bit. However, I do have to allow for a bit of cannon fodder when I switch off. Also, there are days I simply shoot one better than the others.

I have come to understand that, like golf, if I don't play/practice regularly my score tends to be pretty bad.

I had a recent session with one of my newly acquired Beretta's that just blew! I had to walk away from it for a while. When I come back I expect that my experience will improve.

Just hang in there and practice, practice, practice.

My problem with the 320 wasn't accuracy but the lousy trigger, which stung with the first few shots. None of my other guns give trigger bite. Sent it back to SIG for replacement with the "adverse" trigger, which is supposed to ease the pain. We'll see if that works. If not, it's going on Armslist. I have six 9mm pistols and my favorite is the Canik TP9SA, which cost half as much as the SIG and shoots twice as good.
