So Long story short I got pissed, and tired of the pants on head stupid IDPA club here in town.  I have had friends bug me to make the switch to USPSA, and finally did it.  Well, I knew a G19 wasn't going to really cut it, so here comes the new gun fairy.

 

I bought a Sig P320 on a killer deal (fullsize, 5 mags) shot it.  Taking the chance, I would honestly say in my opinion its the best striker-fired turd of the bunch (for now).  I ordered a GGI trigger and some basepads for it, and got the nifty SP red grip tape, because hell, if you are going to shoot USPSA, might as well be super fab doing it.  Ordered a set of LPA sights, and polished up some of the contact points.  I have another grip module on the way that is going to get stippled, but so far I really like this gun.  I also ordered the GGI fat guiderod, and it came with the 15 lbs recoil spring.  On that note, anyone run this guiderod in the P320?  How does it do with 9mm loads?

Im going to the USPSA match on 3/11, so we shall see how many dicks I suck while im there.  Im guessing I get my ass whooped, but itll only be my 2nd match ever.  Attached File  rsz_img_0144.jpg   114.02KB   62 downloads

Don't get the grip stippled unless you do it yourself. It's not worth the money that most "pros" charge, and it isn't as effective as glue and grit. I know a guy who does that work on P320s.
The guide rod is good. I have been using a 14 lb ISMI most often. I also got a hold of a tungsten version of the same guide rod that makes a sweet addition to any CO rig but they are hard to come by and are just about too heavy for Production.

By the way, stippling a P320 grip in IDPA will put you into ESP since IDPA ruled that the grip module wasn't a readily replaceable grip part. Yes, that's right, that $35 grip isn't a readily replaceable grip part...it's the entire grip. Semantics.

Sounds like the p320 is excellent with a simple change of the sights, trigger mechanism, recoil mechanism, frame, and texture.

I'd be nervous about going to the match without having changed the barrel. The goal in production is not, of course, to shoot an affordable gun recognizing results will be largely based on your preparation and performance.

No the goal is to spend at least the original purchase price or more in new parts in an effort to create a "George Washington's Axe" - the head has been replaced twice and the the handle three times but it's still the same axe - in which the new gat is called production but in reality has no parts it was produced with originally. It's hard to get there 100 percent but you are making a great effort.

Stock sights on a 320 are dumb, definitely change them. Extractor springs on a 320 are dumb, keep a spare. Trigger return springs on a 320 are dumb, also keep a spare.

Hasn't even shot 2 matches, buys a new gun, and is already fucking around with every third part on the gun. Makes sense.

Good to know.

Unless otherwise noted, expect that all my posting here is in true Doodie fashion.  If my post somehow upsets your sensibilities, well...there ya go.

Gun doesn't matter. You'll be just fine with a Sig 320.

Shoot one shot at a time in the A zone as fast as you can and you'll be just fine.
I like to rewatch election night 2016 coverage and I want to marry a conservative black girl who likes to shoot.

Doesn't that make the whole entire gun.......dumb?

True story, but I've put about 1500 rounds down the gun (purchased a bit ago) and even I could tell the stock sights suck assholes. I already had the LPA sight from another sig (226) that were never installed, and knew I wanted to be able to change recoil spring weights if I wanted to.


Besides, I want to be fab motherfucker. Don't kill my jazz.

Thanks bruh. Also, how many handies for an x5 p320? I'm free and smell good in the dark.

totally agreed dude. I mean I def need to change the barrel too. I'm going to call Yeager for advice on Friday before the match, and see if he can get me a barrel overnighted. I'm glad you reminded me, I would have been fucked with some pleb-tier level 0 barrel. Should I just go ahead and use g2rip ammo too? Theoretically, if I shoot through barricades it will prefragment, and I should have a good chance of getting a 2a hit with one bullet, sort of like two birds, one stone... right?

Yea I have a soldering iron and it doesn't look too difficult. A buddy of mine is really good at it, so he gets the large and med grip module I ordered.
