New and improved controls
New and improved controls

It is refreshing to see a manufacturer being so responsive to the requests of it’s customer base. That’s a huge reason I dumped all of my Canon gear and switched to the Fuji X System. There seemed to be some common annoyances with the P320 platform that most shooters took issue with. The take down lever was very big and although I prefer it that way, most don’t. The slide release was hideous. It stuck out too far and was too far back which prevented the slide from locking back on an empty magazine when using the grip that most competitive shooter use. There was also an issue with the trigger itself where the tip of the blade would auger its way into the side of your trigger finger.

Well is seems Sig has listened to its customers and responded in short order by redesigning those parts and getting them to market rather quickly. I noticed the new and improved parts on the most recent P320 I bought. Notice the flat take down lever and the glorious slim (and forward) slide catch release lever. Boom!

Well played Sig Sauer, well played. Now if you don’t mind, create a magazine release for us small guys that isn’t longer, but has a larger surface that extends a bit to the rear of the gun. Sig, feel free to ping me for details.

    Could you post a pic of a side view of the take down lever to see how thick it is.
    A comparison pic of both old and new lever would be great also.

      Joe-
      Sorry, I already sent it off to Burke for his Competition Action Job. But I will post some pictures once I have it back in hand.
