So, yesterday I took my SIG P320 X-Compact and M17 to my LGS and traded them in for the M&P9 M2.0 Spec Series Compact (the bull shark grey kit) and the full-size Spec Series with the FDE slide. No matter how much I love SIG Sauer, or how much I know you can’t believe what you see and read on the internet, I couldn’t shake the discomfort I had with carrying the 320 given the growing number of random discharges that have been occurring with even after recall.

I carried an M&P40 (later the 9mm) for years but ultimately moved to Glock. Over the past few years I had started to shift to the SIG and was incredibly pleased with the fit in my hand and performance. I don’t know if the P320 has actual issues or if they are incredibly overblown. What I do know is that the Glock and the M&P have never had such questions surrounding them and the M&P M2.0 really fits my hand. The texture is fantastic and the newer trigger is at least comparable with the 320. Here’s hoping I made the right choice.

I still have my 226 Legion and 229 Elite and I’m happy as ever with them. At the end of the day, I traded to 320s with a total of 12 magazines and 2 Wilson Grip modules and paid $500 for 2 new M&Ps with optics… I think I did ok. Hopefully down the road the stink will fade and the issues (real or perceived) will pass and I will pick up another 320.

Cheers.

Yeah, I'm an M&P fan.  I also have a P320X5.   

I prefer the feel of the M&P.

I love my P320s.  Everything you feel about the M&P I feel about the SIG.  To each our own.

I can’t stand the Glock trigger or trigger guard.

Sounds good to me. I've heard some of the stories wouldn't want to carry something I was worried about going off. If I ever buy a 9mm, I plan on looking at the Walther PPQ M2, if they still make it at the time. Nearly every critic said it was the best striker-fired trigger. I don't know if anything better has come out since then.

So has the 320 discharge thing been run to ground yet?  I thought it was just when dropped...am I wrong here?

Also, I read where the 320 X-Five is not affected.  Again, am I wrong here?
