Getting down to business for minimal expense preparing and to give a pleasant handgun to devotees of the celebrated brand, Sig Sauer has fostered the new P322 gun.
Planned and developed absolutely in New Hampshire by Sig, the P322 is a sledge discharged 20+1 shot .22 LR gun that is, more than whatever else, trustworthy with normal ammunition. This is no mean accomplishment when the famously untrustworthy cartridge is its grub. Utilizing an inward treated steel outline inside a polymer hold, the gun’s aluminum slide contains a solitary activity just encased hammer.
Including able to use both hands surface controls and a simple “no instruments” takedown for support, the new P322 ships with a strung barrel connector for gag gadgets and silencers – no additional barrel required – is optics-prepared right out of the container, and has both a level and bended trigger shoe that the client can trade out as wanted. Other standard elements incorporate front slide serrations, a flexible back sight, a fiber-optic front sight, an ambi outline mounted manual wellbeing, and a M1913 embellishment rail on the residue cover for lights and lasers.
As a feature of the plan approval process, Sig’s designers went through over 15 months oppressing model weapons to an overwhelming and requesting series of tests, reconstructing and refining the norm as they went. This remembered 5,000 dry shoot for every gun and running three weapons through 40,000 rounds of a wide blend of .22 LR loads drawn from across the ammunition market. To guarantee the P322 would be prepared for hard use with extras, a big part of the test weapons were equipped with optics and an assortment of silencers were used to guarantee similarity.
Eventually, Sig’s designers fostered a rimfire self-loader gun that had a “mean rounds between stoppage” pace of north of 1,000 rounds, a practically unbelievable benchmark for a .22 LR autoloader.
Toward the beginning of March, preceding the send off of the P322, Sig Sauer welcomed Guns.com and different news sources to an occasion in Orlando in which 16 participants ran eight of the new .22 LR guns in the Florida sun day in and day out.
This incorporated the chance to drop 200-300 adjusts each through the guns to acquire a commonality and afterward breaking to sort out in groups and backpedaling on the line to run a (fortunately) casual Steel Challenge Match over the course of the evening. This gave the participants another 200-300 rounds downrange. As we needed to bend over, fundamentally two individuals for every firearm, this implied the normal P322 needed to bite through as much as 1,000 rounds of CCI Mini Mags in only a couple of hours on guns that were dry, right out of the crate.
So, I for one saw only several disappointments on the line, and those being late in the early evening on firearms that were so gummed up with carbon you were unable to see the chamber. Without a doubt, that is certifiably not a comprehensive test, yet it was an incredible prologue to the P322.
Since getting back home and testing a T&E weapon, which I have put around 500 rounds through up to this point, I have just seen one disappointment, which could be ammunition based as the round – an Aguila Super Extra – was dimpled yet didn’t go off in any event, when recovered and attempted once more.
The P322 ships with a couple of flush-fitting 20-round magazines that are not difficult to stack while expanded 25-rounders and state-consistent 10-round mags are allegedly destined to be accessible. While Sig commonly doesn’t deliver MSRPs, liking rather to give its sellers a Minimum Advertised Price edge, the perfect balance for the P322 is in the $400 territory, putting the weapon solidly in the realistic class, particularly when stacked against contenders like the Glock 44, Taurus TX 22 Comp, and FN 502.
