Sorry to hear you are having issues, I have put +1000 through my compact and have not had a single issue so far. Hopefully SIG CS will make it right!

250 rounds through mine and no issues.. Only issue I have is with the Romeo1 optic. No matter how much I turn the two adjustment screws for up/down or windage, the red dot stays in the exact same spot. Will not more.

I dropped it off to Sig and apparently it has to be shipped to Oregon where their optics department is..

Hope it doesn't take too long to get is back.. We will see.

EDIT: Has anyone had their P320 rx sent in for optic repair and if so how long did it take to get it back...

Just curious.. Thanks

I bought a SIG P320 9mm in Carry and then found a Compact grip module and magazine on sale in WA state. Makes a nice size for carry, even if I give up 2 rounds.

I also had issues with spent round staying in the barrel. So i bought a new spring and extractor rod. I just swapped out the spring for the older spring and left the original extractor rod alone for the time. No more issues so far after 200 rounds after putting in a different spring.

Remember, SIG does not make things like springs. They buy in bulk and cut to the desired length. Some springs may not have been tempered well, and don't have as much "bite" When the spring was cut to length, and then ground "flat" it may have gotten just a bit hot one either or both ends, taking out some of the tension. Want to ruin or change a spring? Just heat it some. I have an extra spring for my Bersa Thunder 22 that I heated a couple of the coils and now I can shoot the cheaper .22 ammo without having to have top performer CCI minimag to shoot out of it. That took out just enough tension to give the slide more leeway for less powerful ammo.

May not seem like much, and unless you had some way to test the spring with a gage you might not see any difference. I did notice, though, the new pile of empty brass off to my 3-4 o'clock position now.

I had FTE problems on my FDE P320c with certain kinds of ammo. I called Sig support and they sent me a different extractor spring pin. After that it has worked great.

I've put about 500 round through my P320c. I had FTE with steel cased ammo, no issues with regular brass.

My preference is for DA/SA, hammer-fired metal framed pistols.

I very infrequently carry the P320 Compact in 9mm. (Certain jobs take me out on salt water.) But, I now have well over 600 rounds fired thru it and nary a hiccup. Eats the cheapest reloads to finely made high-end SD ammo. When I do carry it I carry it with great confidence. Every gun I own is meant to be shot and carried and used for HD. If it isn't 100% I will not have it for long. SIG is pumping out P320s like crazy and the gun has caught on like wildfire. With all those pistols being mass produced its inevitable that some bad ones will be pushed off the assembly line.

PatFranklin I picked a used but like new s&w 669 a couple months back to be my optional CC to my p320c . I never wanted a DA SA before for CC but as soon as I pulled the trigger on this one both DA and SA it sold me and its now my smaller carry pistol . 8lb 7oz DA pull and 3lb 5oz SA pull and as smooth as any trigger pull I had a chance to try . All I wonder is why did I not but one 30 years ago . Maybe even a model 59 .

Interesting. I was not familiar with the S&W 669. I just did a quick look-up and I like what I see. Thank you.

Your welcome . It does make for a nice smaller carry equal in size to a 1911 defender or ultra models only a a fuzz wide . Some don't like the grips and change to a gen 3 "upgrade" but that does make it wider and I'm good with the skinny stock plastic grips .

Sad day when they discontinued the P250. Much preferred over the 320. The 320 has become the 'in' pistol to buy these days even though I think the SP2022 is a better pistol then the 320.

Have been shooting my P320c with no issues, pushing 800 rounds.
Will be tomorrow putting a 100 through the pistol. I also shoot a CZ 75 b and really
enjoy my range time with it. Heavier and bigger, but great fun shooting.

Interesting. I'm 600 rounds in on the P320 and I feel that is enough to "get used to" a firearm but I am missing targets with my P320C that I am hitting with my SP2022 40SW.

I've found myself anticipating recoil... odd when I started firing pistols in a 40. I am starting to think striker fired isn't good or I just like the 4.4lb trigger (SA) on the SP2022.
