Question P320 Compact Recoil Spring Assembly

Does the P320 Compact use the same spring for all calibers?

SIG only shows one spring assembly for both P320 Compact and P320 Carry with no mention of caliber.

I wish I knew the answer, but I can tell you the P320F uses different springs for different calibers. My 9mm has red paint on the end of the spring, where as another caliber has green. (I believe the 40.)

Also, I can tell you my compact has no paint marking on it.

Yeah, my Wife's P320 Compact 9mm has no color code either.

I can see the P320 Compact and P320 Carry using the same length recoil assembly since only the grip length is different.

But I can't see the 9mm using the same spring as the .40/.357.

Sig doesn't designate a caliber difference, just one part number for the "compact and carry models". Other than the full size, I have yet to see anyone label then for different calibers. M&P pistols also use one part number on the full size and compacts for all 9.40.357 pistols.

Edit - I meant the full size is a different beast altogether, not that they have them for different calibers.

Curious. We only have the one P320; my Wife's P320 Compact 9mm.

So I don't have any others with which to compare.

Do they make up for the lack of a different spring by milling the .40/.357 slides to possess more mass?
