I'll be attending the Sig Sauer P320 Armorer's Course in Epping, NH this coming Thursday, June 18th. If there are any technical questions relating to the P320 post them here, I'll print them out and take 'em with me. If time allots and I'm allowed I will attempt to address as many as possible with the Instructors.

What is thread pitch on the threaded version? If threaded barrel can be used on sub compact version, permissible to change trigger pull, what they estimate the life of the barrel , trigger group.

The thread pitch is metric, I have that info somewhere and will post it once I find it. There is a threaded barrel for the SC it's just not available yet, I was told mid-July. There are a few shops that can modify the trigger.....Google is your friend. I'll get answers for bbl and FCU life in Epping on Thursday and will report back.

My question isn't really technical. I was able to obtain two Carry frames (long grip with 17 rnd 9mm mags with the shorter rails), but they currently are only producing medium sized grips in the carry model. Any word on date of large sized grips in carry module would be great, and if they plan on making threaded barrels for the full length P320. Love this pistol. The carry frame on the 4.7 inch barrel looks good. Thanks SeaMac !

Calls I've made in the past indicate the different size grip modules are late in coming but coming nonetheless the same applies to the threaded barrels which are supposed to be released in mid-July. It's rumored that P250 TB's will work in the P320 although every time I've attempted to confirm this with Sig, they deny the compatibility.

It's late uesdayevening. Checking up on this thread Only other questions I can think of is Safeties coming out on the p320, and glock like triggers ? I've heard mention of it. Kind of excited about you taking the armorer's course. Check in with us when you're done, let us know how it was...good knowledge to gain...Good luck with it, it's a worthy pistol to learn and take the course on IMHO.

I'm in NH now, class tomorrow. I'm sure safeties will be discussed as well the advertised "tab" trigger. Tell'ya what, the Sig Sauer Academy Pro Shop is very much like a candy store, likely to spend copiously before I depart Friday AM.

Related to the P320, and not technical: Ask them if they will actually start stocking and selling the caliber/size conversion kits for the P250 (and the P320 I guess), instead of just having all of them listed as "out of stock".

Funny you mention this MD, the Pro Shop has quite a few, I was looking at the .357 Sig kit today. Of course the only catch, you need to come to Epping, NH which is actually a nice little town with fabulous weather compared to SoFla summers.

It's official, I am now a factory certified Sig Sauer P320 Armorer, very entertaining and informative class. The facility itself is world class and I fully intend to return for firearms training in the future. I suggest anyone nearer than me to look into the courses offered at the Sig Sauer Academy in Epping, NH you won't be disappointed.

Their pistols are worth a close look and if you prefer polymer's the P320 has an outstanding trigger.

FYI: You can bring any weapon you wish for firearms training. They honestly do have an impressive range, 100, 200, 300 and 1000yd rifle, numerous pistol, maritime and force on force, 360 ranges and shoot houses. Their training staff is impressive in its own right.

Do they have conversion kits for the 9mm carry to 45acp.? or is that going to have to be a whole new firearm because of the cartridge width? I have seen the 357 Sig and 40 S&W conversions but not a 45 yet.
Thanks for the info.!!!! (LOVE THE P320!)

Mighty envious of ya SeaMac! I'd love to attend an armorer's training course. I've been meaning to get a Sig back into the rotation since I sold my Pro2340 (word to the wise: never sell your guns, it almost always leads to regret), and the 320 has definitely been under consideration.

For the .45acp you will need to purchase a "new" firearm as you stated the cartridge is larger therefore requiring a larger FCU or fire control unit.

Yes, I'd recommend it, even though it cost me around $1500 to attend it was well worth it, if only I lived closer. Soon more P320 Armorer's courses will be available nationwide, the one I took was only the third offered.
