Among internet rumors that the Sig Sauer P320 would fire if it were dropped, this video shows what a few tests ran on the firearm revealed.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past few months, you know all about Sig’s new contract with the U.S. Army, so we don’t expect the firearm manufacturer to drag their heels on finding a fix for this rare defect.
The issue was first brought to light when the Dallas Police Department reportedly recalled the pistol until a solution was discovered.
An interdepartmental memo found on The Firearm Blog reads:
“the Sig Sauer P320 is no longer approved by the [Dallas] Police Department for any use.
Those officers that currently have a Sig Sauer P320 as a primary duty weapon will have the following two options:
Option 1 – Go to the Firearms Training Center on Monday, July 31st , during business hours, to be issued a city Sig Sauer P226 and qualify with that weapon.
Option 2 – Purchase another city approved weapon and respond to the Range on Monday, July 31st , during business hours, to qualify with that weapon.”
Like we said, we certainly don’t expect Sig to take this lightly. The gun manufacturer has a reputation for building top-of-the-line firearms and outstanding customer service. This will be a great opportunity for Sig Sauer to show why the U.S. Army chose their firearm over the rest.
