Coming in from SHOT, Sig Sauer has designed and about to release a P320 Target Model. Below is some more information from one of the Sig Shooters Tim Herron:
Newest addition to the P320 line. The Sig Sauer P320 Target. Pistol is fantastic even as a working “near finished” prototype. The barrel is now a full 5.0″ long vs. 4.7″ of the standard full size gun. Slide profile is changed and looks much more sleek. Pistol as seen here at SHOT has a fiber optic front sight (shared with the 1911 Stainless Match for comparison), a fully adjustable rear sight (expect a much more refined rear sight package on the finished production gun), trigger with improved take up and reset at 3.5-3.8lb pull weight with flat trigger.
The real sauce is in the completely new grip module. As you can see, profile is completely changed allowing for a much more pronounced and higher beavertail, undercut front strap to allow a high grip on the gun for even more recoil control, a weighted grip within the blackstrap to further balance the pistol. The frame actually retains the same grip angle as the standard P320 however it has a widened area on the bottom of the grip to allow for an oversized and flared and smoothed magwell. The Target utilizes standard P320 magazines, however they utilize a different more classically styled flat base pad. Expect base pad offerings from companies like Springer Precision, Shockbottle, Obsidian and other current manufactures to work. – Tim Herron
I like the P320, however it appears that they have designed the P320 Target specifically for USPSA/IPSC production division. I like the fact that they extended the barrel to the max length of 5.0 inches for the rules of IPSC. Hopefully it will come with the adjustable sights and fiber front. This is a working prototype but very close to the production model. I believe the biggest improvement is the grip module that is weighted to reduce recoil and has a magwell built in. See images below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Update: Extended and interchangeable magwell should be included as part of the package. Also available direct from Sig Sauer will be extended capacity magazines for the P320 which will hold 21 rounds!!
Word is this will come Production legal! Competition kit will come with mag well for other sports like limited, 3-gun, IDPA ESP, ProAm. Trigger is 3.5-4lb.
