This is a discussion on P320 reliability within the P250 & P320 Modular Pistols forums, part of the SIG Sauer Pistols category; Had the p320 proven to be a reliable platform? Any difference in realizability between frame sizes? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk...

P320 full and compact. Thrown a ton through them. Abused the compact with every crappy type of ammo I have, hollow point, round ball, truncated, limp wrist, left hand, right hand, canted, you name it. Zero issues. It is ready to go into my CCW mix with my M11-A1 and S&W 642

I'm pretty sure the Army might have done a little reliability testing when they decided to go with the P320 to replace their Beretta M9's.

There have been known extraction issues with compact 9 mm P320s. According to a knowledgeable source on another forum, sometime in the middle of last year, SIG dealt with this by modifying the slide, making it heavier by deleting some lightening cuts, and changing the extractor cut.
I have read that folks who had extraction issues with the P320C 9 mm who sent them to SIG got them back with what appeared to be a visibly different extractor.
There have been small numbers of various other issues reported including failure of trigger reset, a few broken trigger bars, and one report of a broken striker channel back plate.

I'm close to 2500 rounds fired in almost 2 years . Zero issues . Changed the medium compact frame to a small compact about 6 months backs . Conceals better . Still shoots well enough and still no issues .
As far as how reliable is the p320 ?? Its a production handgun and if you have problems they may show quickly and sig will make it right but the same could be said about _____ . Insert brand name !! No production handgun is beyond having the occasional problem most times when new .

I only have one P320 which is in the compact version. It is now about 15 months old with 1200 rounds through it. No one single bobble of any kind.
But to be fair, it's been years since I had a reliability problem with any of my several dozen handguns of all makes, assuming reliability means that the gun feeds, fires and ejects. Even my two Gen 4 Glock 19s that pounded my face with hot empty brass were reliable. They would reliably feed, fire and reliably ejected the hot brass into my face.
I consider my 320 compact to be very reliably and I doesn't throw hot brass into my face. Just as experience of one.

compact with thousands of rounds through it. No problems. Many brands of ammo. and different weight bullets. I believe I may have had one stoppage some time ago. It may have been another gun.

I would not hesitate to purchase a new P320 Compact and probably will within the next couple months. The P320 Compact with the latest changes, including adverse trigger and low profile slide stop, are really sweet. Definitely one of the very top tier striker fired pistols.

A lot of great posts in this thread, and I will just add that if you're a member of any given forum, then you'll see problems with every company. From Glock's brass-to-face to M&P's terrible accuracy, every brand has something to keep an eye on.
There has been a lot of love for the P320, and I've noticed on a lot of professional-oriented forums that people are switching to the P320 as their duty weapons. With that said, if you're going to get a P320, you'd be served by putting at least a couple hundred rounds through it to guarantee proper extraction, but that's a given with any firearm.
