And yet it does, with a high degree of consistency. I've not had one fail yet; the only exceptions have been a bad batch of primers (old stock), which had the same problems in other weapons, including Glocks, and a few that didn't have the primer fully seated.

Hey, you never know when a concealed carrier in the US will find himself having to take ammo with brutally "hard" primers off of a dead Russian soldier. We need strikers that hit hard enough to knock the sights off target when the pistol is fired!

Have no interest in them while P-series guns can be had.

Bought a P250 to be a cheap range gun. I really liked it, I liked the idea of the P320 as well. Fast forwrd a couple years and I happen on an X5 and a P365XL in a package deal and figured I'd immediately sell the 365. Surprisingly, its the P365XL that has my interest. The X5 is almost out the door but I'm gonna try again with a new front sight.

The P210A is a dream to shoot.

I have always liked Sig hammer fired handguns and also have two of their 1911's that are fantastic. I do have a P365 because it is kinda unique. As for striker fired I tend to stay away from them. I did give one a try with the VP9 but I am a H&K fan. BTW, I was very surprised with the VP9.

I purchased a P320 Compact .357 Sig not long ago.
Very happy with it so far. I find it compliments the rest of my Sig P Classic collection nicely. May be some thread drift but since we now are getting an aluminum frame P320, how bout a stainless steel SSE version? What has happened to the P320 10mm version?

Yeah! And now that you mention it, where are the 9mm Makarov conversion barrels? C'mon Sig... You're dropping the ball here!

I wasn’t till I played with a Wilson Combat edition today at a local gun shop. That thing is fine. (Still like my 226 better, but...)

I have a 2017 9mm compact and it has been more than satisfactory and my current EDC, but "enthralled" is a little too strong a word. Actually, the last gun that truly "tickled me pink" was a CZ 75D Compact (PCR).

They're an expensive habit, but they do handle, function, and shoot as nice as they feel.

A rousing game of “my striker gun can beat up your striker gun”.

I’ll take Anal Bum covers for $600.

I read, on another forum, about differences in the FCU between pistols built before 2019 and after a certain date in 2019, also LE/Mil FCU different than civilian. Can any armorers confirm this.

I'm holding out for 7.62x25. You can never be too prepared.

I wouldn't say enthralled but I do like moving the FCU to different frames.

My friend liked one enough (not a gun person) to buy it AND to get the Wilson frame.

I don't carry one, I prefer my P220 Legion and will stay with an all metal gun. I do own 4, P320's, and a P365 that I use in training. In 50 years of training, I have never seen a centerfire handgun that novices are successful with as quickly as with the P320. And I have worked with a bunch of them. It's the trigger, and the ergonomics, and decent sights. Exchangeable grip frames help to make that work. In the meanwhile, it's me and my P220 Legion SAO every day.

I just recently stuck my 320 Subcompact FCU and upper in a Wilson Combat X-Compact frame. It approaches perfection: like a Glock 19, only better.

For my subcompact double-stack needs, I will now revert to my G26.

My wife has no idea of the hype, marketing efforts or anything related to the P320.

Recently I bought one. After shooting it along with half a dozen other pistols my wife said she really likes my P320. I think it may have replaced the P239 as her favorite.
