    P320 carry. range issues

    I picked up a p320 carry this week used. The owner says he only put 150 through it and that it ran flawlessly. Well I took it to the range today and have mixed feelings about it. It is VERY accurate and has a beautiful trigger. But out of 100 rounds of ammo, I had 11 failure to eject and one light primer strike. I'm hoping it is just an ammo issue (perfecta 115 grain) even though I have no problems running it in other guns. Have any of y'all had this issue?

    Sometimes those 115s don't run real well in a new pistol until it is well broken in with heavier ammunition.

    No personal experience, just something I have seen written concerning several new handguns.

    Not sure anyone will have a lot of experience with this pistol since it just hit the streets. I would put another 200 through it and see if it doesn't work itself out. If not, you may want to contact Sig for assistance.

    Many weapon ar ammo sensitive, some will eat anything... from my experience.
    If possible , I would ask the pervious owner what ammo he used... if you can get that info, at least you know one that will work... there is a chance that he might have had problems...with only 150 rounds fired I'm wondering why he sold it.. I could run 150 though it in 2 days with ease.. many weapon today suggest you break them in with 300 to 500 rounds.. many weapons are not broken in at 150 rounds. Saturday I shot 100 rounds through my EDC. I usually shoot 50 rounds a week through it,, just to keep my edge at my age..

    I have a full sized P320 9mm and I have only put 50 rounds of perfecta through it as far as that ammo goes but it did not have a single hiccup. I am not an expert by any means but I would try a few different kinds of ammo in a range trip if I was having these problems and id bring another box of the stuff that's giving you trouble and if it happens with other brands to I would contact Sig.

    Used pistol, 11 failures to eject, light primer strike. There probably was a reason it was sold. I don't believe it's an ammo issue, but it's worth a try. I've heard very positive reviews about Perfecta ammo, it's manufactured by Fiocchi I believe. .

    I own a P320 compact and have put 800 rounds through it with absolutely no issues. I usually shoot Federal 115 gr ammo.

    I found the above statement to be true regarding my first new sig, the SP2022 in 9mm. It struggled with the 115s at first, so I swapped to 124s for a couple hundred rounds, then back to 115 without any trouble since. Paul

    I tested mine, 10% fail with Russian ammo (all light primer strike). I just bougth Geco for next time, hopefully it's going to be better in my P320.

    Make sure the gun is clean. Make sure the magazines are clean. Make sure you're not limp wristing it. Try another brand and weight of ammo. Try a different magazine.

    Those should all be checked before you start to wonder about the gun itself.
