P320 C 45 or Glock 30S

I asked this same question on the Glock Forum so I felt it was fair to ask it here too.

I'm looking at either getting a Glock 19 and a P320C 45 or a Glock 30S and a P320C 9mm. I've shot both the Glock 19 and the P320C 9mm and the P320 was much easier to shoot.

Has anyone had the opportunity to shoot the Glock 30S and the P320C 45? I'm not seeing any good comparisons of the two online.

Thanks

Also I forgot to mention that I would prefer to shoot both the 30S and the P320 before I buy but I haven't found a range that has either yet atm.

Well I have/had 3 of the 4. The one I don't have is the 320 in 45. Sold my 30s because my 227 carry was that much better. I did like the 13 round option. Actually sold all my glocks with the exception of my 19. Reality either platform will serve you well. The 30s is an excellent carry 45 as is the 19 for 9mm. I just prefer shooting my sig over my glocks. To me the ergo's, trigger, are better for me but glocks are really good as well. Just my personal preference.

Just don't let anyone tell you that the "high bore axis" is an issue, that's a myth when it comes to the soft shotability of the sigs. You're on the right track, go shot them if you can and make the choice that's best for you. Good luck.

I don’t get your question. So you are wanting one of each in a certain caliber? Why not 2 sigs or 2 glocks?

Anyway, if you want one of each and you said you liked the P320C 9mm better than the G19 then get a G30S. I never owned a P30S but I eyeballed them for a while. Any brand will work as directed but if you buy the same for both calibers, then you will get used to the ergonomics of the one brand as opposed to switching platforms when you want to shoot 9mm or .45. Obviously I would vote for two P320’s cause that’s what I own and this is a Sig forum. Glock Talk might say the opposite. Lol

Not the S but I carried the G30 tucked underneath for awhile. Handled that .45 like rubber bands across the room. Smooth as silk and a real pleasure to shoot. It's got just the right amount of weight and thickness to handle it comfortably. Now my G39 was a whole other story.

One thing I noticed with the SIG 320 you can get it in a regular trigger like a DA, not that safe action trigger jive. It's one of the reasons I no longer own Glocks, it gave me problems and I could not adjust to it.

So in that regards the SIG is unique to offer that on a striker fired.

IMHO, I would get the P320c. If you get the P320c, since the trigger group is what is serialized, I can construct other P320 pistols from it. If I get the Glock, I have only one configuration.

I handled a P220 and a P226 today and now I'm wishing I had a bigger budget to get a 227 (maybe next year)

I have a Glock 26 for carry and I had a P320 9mm before, I just didn't realize how much I liked the P320 until I let it go and got a Glock 19.

I have a GSSF membership so I am eligible to buy a Glock at Blue Label prices so that is why it was going to be 1 Glock and 1 P320 (or P227)

Tecmc. I think your right to look at the sigs. I like you also have a gssf membership and will "have" to buy another glock. If you like the 45 the 30s is pretty nice because as typical glock fashion it's good and really a good size/capacity for a 45 if you carry. I debated with myself quite a bit in selling it. I'm actually considering the g29sf in 10mm. Since that's a round I don't have and the one I shot was just similar to recoil as the 30s.

Also had a 26 but it was very easy to get field if that once I got the 320sc.

I had a P320 Compact and a Subcompact grip that I carried for awhile, I never could get the hang of my pinky hanging off the bottom.

I'm really looking at the P227 now so I'll probably go P227 and Glock 19. Depends on if I can sell my AR though.

Thank you for everyones input...the Glock forum didn't even respond.

I'm very interested in this thread. I have all of them except for the p320 Compact 45.

I will probably buy one when I see a good price on it somewhere.

Reading threads like this, I always wonder how long it will be before somebody chimes in with, "Have you considered a CZ?" sort of post.

Couple comments, first the 320sc with the small grip is excellent from an ergo perspective with the 15 round option, eliminates that picky issue, but I get your concern.

Secondly, I Absolutely love my 227 carry. If I were to edc a 45 no question that would be the one for me, that's why I got rid of my 30s & PPQ 45. For carry purpose you should consider either the 227 carry or sas version. It's basically the indentical size as the 229, or close to the g19 but obviously heavier. The regular 227 is sized like the 226, but carry & sas are sized like the 229 and are excellent shooting guns.

I had the chance to shoot the P227, P220, Glock 21 and Glock 30 last week at the range and I'm glad I did. I was very surprised at what I found out.

In order of my preference:
Glock 21
P227
P220
Glock 30

I was in a hurry, I was trying to shoot them all on my lunch break but I did not shoot the Glock 30 well at all so it was completely off the table. The Glock 21 I shot extremely well, much better than I shoot the Glock 19 or 17.

I really liked the P227 and the P220 looks and feel but I had a hard time with the DA/SA trigger. I'm sure I would master them with practice.

So for the time being I picked up a P320C 9mm and I'll pick up a P320C 45 when one becomes available (possibly around Black Friday on a good deal). Then next year for GSSF coupon time I'll probably pick up the Glock 19 or 17 for kicks.

I'm putting a p320C 45 on my list as well.

It's the gun I've been wanting Glock to make for years, a 19 sized .45 ACP.

30SF vs 320C45

For my EDC, I transitioned from a Kimber Compact CDP to a Glock 30sf about 2 years ago. I worked with the 30SF for about a year, running about 3000 rounds through it. I also have spent a weekend training with it. I have found that training hard with a gun tends to bring out the weakness in a gun and the shooter.

Although I tried, I never really fell in love with the 30SF. I loved the 30SF's additional capacity, but never liked the grip. If you leave your pinky on the gap between the mag and grip, you'll get a nice blood blister every time. I also had problems getting the magazines to drop cleanly. The width of the grip also required too much shift in my shooting grip to access the mag release. (NOTE: may be related to my previous issue with dropping mags cleanly- even after installing an extended mag release.)

That said, I always stayed away from Sigs due to the high bore axis. When I got a chance to shoot a 320C in 45, I was amazed at how soft it shot. The grip angle is more like a 1911- which I prefer, and the 320C's small grip module fits my hand very well. (i.e. able to reach all controls without shifting my shooting grip- mags drop cleanly EVERY time )

The 30SF carries one additional round compared to the 320C- advantage 30SF. The 30SF is also slightly smaller in height. The grip length of the 2 guns is almost the same- important to me for concealability. For me, losing one round of capacity was outweighed by the 320C's perceived reduction of recoil, fit of the 320C to my hand, and the total elimination of my "mag dropping" issue. The 320C/45 has become my preferred defensive handgun.

My advice, shoot both of them- alot, before making a decision.

Hope my $0.02 helps. Good luck.
