The ones without night sights go for around $499 or less and $599 or less with night sights. I don't consider that to be high priced. In the same range as Glock for a premium American made pistol. The again I am used to the prices of my HK pistols including the hammer fired ones.

SIG also seems to be selling P320s as fast as they can make them and IMO that will not get better any time soon with winning the HUGE military contract that will also IMO get them a big boost in their already fast growing LEO/Agency market.

my bad --
I thought I had seen prices $800+, but I can't find that reference now.
MSRP for the full size is $719. Forgetting Glocks, because I prefer M&Ps, the new M&P 2.0 (with night sights) goes for $599 (without night sights), so the SIG is right in the same ballpark.

Of couse no one pays MSRP -- but it is always a good reference point.

Huh?

Here is my M&P 9(FS), 10 shots, 7 yds, group = 0.9". Unfortunately, I was not the shooter.

Gun Review: SIG SAUER P320 RX Compact - The Truth About Guns
I don't think that was it. Funny thing is that it was not that long ago. I saw two prices, one for the full size and one for the compact and both were over $800. I'll be danged if I can find it now. You know the old saying ......... the mind is the first thing to go.

Only issue I've had was with reloads from my lgs. I've put 3 or 4 other brands through it without issue. Even a different brand reload.

I saw a NIB P320 compact 9mm with contrast sights 2 days ago at my local Rural King for $480. Cheaper than a Glock.

I bought both my P320s for under $500, one with night sights.

Ugh. I refuse to use lgs reloads or any reman ammo. My lgs tried to get into the reloading game for their range. I was in there one day and was running low on ammo. So I asked for a box of 9mm at the counter, to finish out my range session. They immediately plunked down one their in house boxes. I opened it up and every round was seated to a different depth. Some were set way too deep. I slid it back across the counter and asked for a box of factory ammo.

One week later, while I was at the range, a female shooter had a minor kb. I was leaving as she came out to the counter with her BRAND NEW, now broken gun. She was probably also carrying a load in her shorts. She came out with the gun and a box of ammo with a bewildered look on her face. I was standing right next to her, shooting the bull with one of the shop guys and listening to what happened. When she walked away, I opened the box of ammo. Sure enough, the same setback issues. I looked at the guy behind the counter, down to the ammo and back at the employee. He saw the same thing and had an "oh ****" look on his face. They don't sell in house reloads anymore.

Regarding p320 reliability, I've had mine a little over a week. 640 rounds through the gun so far. Only one issue so far and that was a single failure to lock on empty. That happened within the first few magazines and has not happened since. Initially, the slide lock was very stiff and has gotten better, so I've attributed that one failure to simple break in. Another few hundred rounds and I'll call it good for carry.

Sorry, I shouldn't have been hyperbolic, and should have been more clear.

I didn't mean to imply that M&P's have terrible accuracy or Glocks eject brass into the shooters face; I just meant that every company has known issues, even if small. Google "Glock brass to face" or "M&P accuracy problems" and you'll see many discussions and many people suffering from the issues, but that doesn't make the issues widespread or even common.

From what I understand, the round count requirement for the MHS program was under 15K rounds. But that was second hand info, so take that for what it's worth. If it's true, that's not a ton of rounds for the competition that would decide the standard sidearm for the entire Army.
