Widder, SASS #59054 Posted November 8, 2020 Share Posted November 8, 2020 I bought a new SIG P320 about 5+ years ago. Never experienced any problems except it was way more accurate than I could shoot it. It was in .357 SIG caliber. A couple years back, SIG adhered to a voluntary return to upgrade the P320 trigger safety, or atleast that was my understanding of the situation. Last summer, SIG issued a letter to P320 owners about a law suit concerning OOB problems. It seems that an owner (or owners) of the P320 had experienced some OOB discharges and issued a suit against SIG. SIG never admitted to the OOB problems but they settled out of court, of which they stated in their letter (email). About 2 weeks after I received their email (letter), I was out shooting my P320 and guess what...... KA-BOOM! I got an OOB. An OOB with a cartridge like the .357 SIG ain't no peepsqueek awakening. It blew back the slide and locked it open. It blew out the Extractor, which I never found. It blew out the magazine and actually separated it on the ground in 4 parts: follower, spring, base plate and mag body. It split the right side of the grip in atleast 2 areas. AND, the brass casing was stuck half way in the chamber and the complete rim area was blown off..... completely off. It didn't damage me or my hand other than a good sting in my hand. I notified SIG immediately. This was last summer/fall. Two weeks ago, they finally notified me back and ask me to send the pistol. I shipped it 1 week ago. Today, they sent me an email stating it had been repaired and is in the mail coming back to me. I should get it early in the week. I'm eager to see if they were able to replace the parts or if they are sending me a new pistol. I hope its repaired because its one of my favorite pistols.....its actually my #1 carry pistol. ..........Widder Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
