Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

you will see in this video that your statement of 100% failure rate is debunked. So where is the line? Is 95% failure rate acceptable? Is a simple majority enough to remove concern? It's still close enough to 100% that this magazine, who accepts advertiser dollars from Sig, would produce a video to...

With the Sig however, drop the gun 100 times in that same angle and you will get 100 discharges. I cannot see how you can equate this with mechanical failure?

Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

i wonder how many times a dropped gun will land on that specific spot. Doesn't matter. The fact that it is in any way capable of firing when dropped is simply unacceptable in the modern world. A gun being 100% drop safe should be as standard as a car with seat belts. no firearm is 100% impervious f...

Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

the government contract model has the upgraded fire control group which will be retrofitted into all prexisting p320 models which is apparently "safe" I think not only did they drop the ball on the original design, but the fix is a bullshit fix. They basically made the trigger lighter so ...

Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

Why is the government model excluded from the upgrade? It's a feature for combat. You throw it at the enemy like a grenade and hope that it lands on the backside. https://s13.postimg.org/3nk2gsipz/grin.gif :lol: you "ain't right" as they say. But I can visualize what you're saying. Flip i...

Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

In all reality, any hand gun could malfunction and fire when dropped, even the beloved glock. This story really seems to be missing something. I've heard of the 229 equinox recall, what other agencies have returned the p320s? Not returned necessarily, but one such example is the ATF determined that...

do you use a weapon mounted light? I don't; I keep a light on my night stand, but I wouldn't utilize it except in a rare circumstance. When you wake up with fully dilated eyes, I see a flashlight as more of a liability than an asset because your eyes are fully dilated but the intruder's are not. A ...
