Any ideas about the P320 Compact?

Have a SP2022, but looking for something a bit more compact for EDC. Not looking for SubCompact as the grips just don't fit my hand.

So I'm thinking the P320 Compact will fit my needs. Any word on when it'll be introduced?

The "Carry" size is already out for the P320, we're just waiting for the Sub Compact now. The Carry is pretty comparable in dimensions to a P229 so it's a bit more concealable than the P2022.

I think it's been out there for several months. In the P320 they often call the compact size the "Carry".

I have the 320 full size and love it. It is currently my only striker fired pistol but I enjoy it as much as my 1911's. It's a great gun.

I believe the Carry is the same size frame module as the P250 Compact. If it is, that means it is the same size as your SP2022. The Carry/Compact is actually a service pistol size gun.

Get a Subcompact. No, they don't have long grips but that is what makes them small.

I've got SC and FS P250's and for what I need the Compact is sort of unnecessary, being neither fish nor foul. I've had 2 SP2022's and they were a bit big for concealed carry {great pistols they are, tho}.

I have a SP2022 and a friend has a P320 Carry, both in 9mm. The SP2022 is roughly 3/8" longer on the slide and frame. If you line up the front of the trigger guards the differences is distributed front to back.

The P320 has a different "beaver tail" that is just a little longer and fits my hand better. The P320 grip has a groove for your thumb which gives more of a positive feel. The P320 grip sides have a slight bulge that fits nicely into the palm. The recoil spring is captivated on the P320 but not on the 2022.

The trigger guard on the 2022 is slightly rounded at the bottom whereas the P320 is almost straight.

The P320 version of a loaded chamber indicator is that the rim of the case is visible through the right side of the slide. No bump on top like the SP2022. No decocking lever on the P320 since it's striker fired.

The P320 uses P250 magazines. The magazine base plate on the 2022 is angled downward which gives people with larger hands more to grip, but it also makes the gun taller at that point by nearly 1/2 inch.

The P320 has ambidextrous slide locks. The P320 takedown lever is very short and nice in that it doesn't have to come out to takedown the gun. The P320 slide is really close to 1/4 thinner than the 2022, but the ambidextrous slide locks make it slightly thicker at that point.

I got to shoot the P320 the other day and was really pleased. I like it more than the SP2022. Even though the differences aren't that much, I'm seriously thinking of buying a P320.

Let me know if there is anything else I can compare for you.

I just bought a P320c even though I wasn't looking for one at the time. I was visiting my LGS and they just got one in, after handling it for a few minutes I decided to buy it. The modularity interested me and since this is Sigs first striker fired pistol I wanted to see how it stacked up with the competition. Sig has a reputation to maintain and this new P320 is right up there with the others.
I've owned several brands of striker fired pistols and the competition is stiff. The best trigger of them all is on Walthers PPQ. That said I find the trigger on the Sig P320c more to my liking than say the H&K VP9 which is also excellent. My recommendation is to compare pistols side by side if possible. Hold it, dry fire it and see how it feels in hand. The P320c is one of those pistols that felt great to me and with Sigs reputation for quality you know you're getting a top tier pistol.

Thanks for the photos in your post.

I am curious how the grip length is for you.
It's hard to tell if your pinky drops off the bottom or not.
I'm one if those that doesn't like to drop the pinky and, with XL hands, it's hard not to sometimes.
What size are your hands?
Thanks

Peppercorn, I too have large hands and find the grip length perfect on my P320c with the medium grip.

After comparing specs, I'm gonna wait til the sub compact comes out. Just doesn't seem there is enough size difference between the SP2022 and the P320 Carry.

Right now my go to EDC is a S&W Wyatt Deep Cover revolver. Just looking to add a few more rounds and an easier reload capability.

My P320C has become my EDC. Over a thousand rounds through it with zero issues. I've been very pleased with it.

Great, thank you.
For perspective can you compare it to a P220, 226 or 229, grip size-wise?

If you get a chance find a dealer who stocks all the Sigs you asked about. I personally think the P320c's grip feels better than all of the above. Check one out and see what you think.
