P320 vs P250

Hello,

I had a question about the P320 and P250. I currently own the P250C in .40 S&W. It seems the P320 is basically the same idea but it is striker fire vs internal hammer fire. Is that the only real difference? Has anyone show both? If so, what did you prefer?

For all intents and purposes yes, the internals as in P320 FCU and slide are a complete redesign to accommodate a striker fired platform. They share the same basic form factor, grip module, magazines and barrel. I do not own both, have shot/handled a P250 and prefer the shorter trigger pull of the striker fired P320.

I will always prefer a striker fire gun to a DAO. It is just a much cleaner process of shooting for me, but there are some who swear by DAO. It's just a personal preference. Both are good designs and good guns.

I own both and shoot both well. If you like a long pull DAO trigger then stay with the 250. The 320 has a very smooth and short trigger pull. In fact I like the trigger on the 320 as well or better than any other pistol.

I have DAO, DA/SA, hammer fired handguns and DAO striker fired handguns. Am proficient with both but definitely prefer the 320 DAO action over all others I have shot or own.

One major item that the strikerfire P320 does not have is the restrike capability of the Hammer P250. You MUST tap and rack before resuming fire. With the hammer design, you can pull the trigger once more before tap and rack.

But it resets with very little slide movement to the rear.

Correct, however that doesn't give it the restrike capability of a hammerfire design.

During the academy, we were taught to pull the trigger again regardless of pistol design, in case of short stroke. If the pistol does not fire we'd tap and rack after.

With the hammerfire design, there is the chance that you could fire the round. You cannot do that with a strikerfire design. There was no option to half rack the slide and it would not be feasible under stress.

Cbrooks45 I have p320 , wife has a p250 . I have trigger time with both . Design differences aside and major difference between two are , the p320 has a lighter 5lb plus take up and additional short pull1.5 to 2lb to fire then a short reset with 6.5 to 7lb pull . The P250 has a long pull smooth double action style trigger . Both have about the same pull weight , 6.5 to 7lb . That's the only differences that matters .

I have carried a handgun with double action trigger for 28 years up until 1 month ago . First 19 with a snubby , the last 10 one of several kahrs . If it was not for hand surgery I would still be pulling a double action style trigger . In ether case they both work well.
Now what I prefer is the 2lb sa trigger on my revolver I hunt with or the 3.5lb on my 1911 .but nether carry well . I miss my kahrs . Just don't have got flexability or strength in my strong hand trigger or middle finger now for a smooth trigger pull or enough control for a DA trigger so the p320 works .


I do not care about the ability to have a handgun that allows double strikes or more . I learned at a young age if a round did not fire to do the Tap Rack Drill. If pulling the trigger the first time did not fire a round I want that round out of the chamber yesterday, not pulling the trigger a second time on what more than likely amounts to a low primer and could get you shot or knifed .
