P320 trigger slap? Login/Join 
Member
posted
Just picked up a P320C and it seems to have some trigger slap similar to some AK's. I have a P365XL and P226 and their triggers don't seem to do it. Am I the only one that thinks this?

If by “slap” you mean that the trigger moves forward with enough force to sting one’s finger, I experienced that with the first P320 I purchased pre-“upgrade.” In fact it was bad enough to develop a bloody blister after a long session. I don’t know, though, if it has continued after the upgrade or if it would occur with my other P320s. I have straight triggers in all of them which may have mitigated the problem, plus I usually wear light gloves when shooting for a couple of reasons.

I don’t know if any of that helps, but ….

I haven't experienced that with any of the three P320s I've owned, including early pre-upgrade models as well as newer upgraded models.

Mine's got it. It's not horrible but it's definitely there.

I've heard people refer to this, but out of a dozen or so P320's, I've not experienced it in a single one, pre-"upgrade," post-"upgrade," curved trigger, straight trigger, or any of the variations (Grayguns, apex, factory, etc). I haven't seen it on full size, compact, carry, subcompact, x-compact, or any of the various versions.

I'm not questioning that it's happening, but it shouldn't be, with a properly assembled, full-functioning pistol.

I'd pull the FCU and check to ensure that the trigger return spring is properly installed. I'd also do the safety checks and make sure nothing is out of order.

Short of that, perhaps a loose grip when firing might allow it.

I’m a little perplexed by this as well. I’ve not experienced this on any of my 320s and I guess I’m just not sure how exactly I would. Once my finger gets on the trigger to fire it never comes off between shots. My finger moves forward enough to reset and immediately preps the trigger for the next shot as soon as the sights line up back on target. I’ve tried to create a scenario where I might see if I can feel the sensation of trigger slap but I can not. I too am wondering if the trigger spring may be bent or not correctly installed on your FCU.

Spring is not bent and is installed correctly. It happens, maybe not to a lot of people but it is something that is evident in some P320's.

I experienced trigger "slap" with a early production P-320. The only pistol out of the many I owned at the time to do that. When I called Sig Customer service, the Rep. was very condescending and acted like he never heard of it happening. One of the few times in my life I blew up at someone on a phone call. He immediately let me know they would send me a return label and we wrapped up the call. Still get a little pissed when I think about it.

Bruce Gray even acknowledged it in one of his posts here several years back. I believe he mentioned Sig addressing the issue with current production guns.
