The P320, on the other hand, was released in 2014. It, like the SP2022, is a polymer framed pistol, but instead of Sig’s classic DA/SA trigger, it is striker-fired. In fact, the P320 is Sig’s first striker-fired pistol.As can be seen below, it comes in a variety of calibers and sizes, but because of the polymer frame retains a cheaper cost than its alloy-framed counterparts.
Models and Specs
As with other P series pistols, Sig has included a lot of design options with the P320. The SP2022 has only two designs to choose from. Read on to learn more about the important specs and designs of these two pistols.
Because the P320 line encompasses all of the pistol size possibilities—sub-compact to full size—and has options for all of the popular calibers—9mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, and .45 Auto—there are few consistent specs. Go to Sig Sauer’s website here for a more detailed look at each of this model of pistol.

The P320 and SP2022 share many features even though some—like their trigger systems—are completely different. Here are some of the most important.
The use of a polymer frame helps to keep everything about these pistols modular. In fact, the “frame” is made up of a stainless-steel skeleton that fits within the polymer grip. Thus, both pistols include interchangeable backstraps (small, medium, and large) that allow you to customize the grip to your specific hand. The shape of the grip hasn’t changed much from the famous P series pistols, but the flexibility is an important update.
The trigger mechanisms vary between the P320 and the SP2022. The SP2022 includes the DA/SA trigger common to most of Sig Sauer’s pistols. The trigger on the SP2022 is very similar to the P226 and others of the P series. As with other DA/SA pistols, you need to enjoy this trigger, or at least practicing with this trigger, to fully appreciate the gun.
The P320, on the other hand, has a striker-fired trigger that breaks at around 7 lbs.Because there is no DA pull, the trigger does not require a huge take-up, which many reviewers have noted positively. However, some reviewers dislike that lack of crisp pull that you receive from the P320 trigger.
Sig Sauer is renowned for the accuracy of their guns. While you may be concerned about the plastic inclusion in these two pistols, don’t worry. The inclusion of the internal firing mechanisms in the stainless-steel chassis helps keep them up to Sig standards. Sig’s inclusion of night, combat, and dovetailed rear sights help keep the pistols’ accuracy high.
When you buy a Sig Sauer gun you are receiving a high quality, resilient, and accurate firearm. What makes the SP 2022 and P320 stand out is their significantly lower price than other Sig guns. The polymer frame helps lower the price, which could run as low as $400 on the street. This opens the door for more people to afford a Sig. If you want a Sig pistol but don’t have the money for an alloy model, or just want a versatile and high functioning gun, then we recommend you take a close look at the SP 2002 and P320.

Rifles differ from handguns and shotguns in their thick barrel walls and spiral grooves in the bore (called rifling). When a barrel is rifled, it can shoot a bullet much more accurately at great distances. Greater accuracy and distance shooting makes this type of firearm extremely popular with hunters. When you are out hunting with…
Like rifles, shotguns are often used in hunting, but you will also find them in sporting, law enforcement, military, or home defense situations. Shotguns were originally designed to shoot “shot” (a multitude of small pellets) or slugs (a solid bullet). Because of the type of ammunition used in shotguns, their barrel walls are much thinner…
Revolvers—like all handguns—have a much smaller barrel than shotguns or revolvers. Revolvers and pistols differ in the way they store their ammunition. Revolvers have a revolving cylinder that holds a specific number of bullets. The cylinder spins are the gun fires. Semi-automatic pistols use magazines. There are two common types of revolvers, single-action and double-action.…
