Well, SIG generally makes a very good product, so I trust it will be satisfactory performer. All these plastic-framed, modular, ultra-modern jobs leave me cold as well. On Monday, I was out shooting my Smith & Wesson Model 25 in .45 Colt (4-inch barrel, custom Goncalo Alves Hogue Monogrip). I had assembled some very accurate, mild-recoil handloads. In all it was a most pleasant experience with a beautiful, old-fashioned blued-steel revolver--exactly my kind of gun! Need I mention that functioning was perfect? As one dear friend of mine in the industry said to me recently, "The new guns suck!"The M9 needs replacement and a striker-fired system seems to meet modern military needs. The modularity of the 320 seems rather unnecessary to me. A 4 to 5" 9mm barrel fulfills the requirements of almost all the sidearm carrying officers, heavy weapons operators, RMPs and office workers.
It's not a pistol I would want to own or would enjoy shooting, but I guess it hasn't been proven to suck yet.
