SIG Sauer's new P320-XTEN semi-automatic pistol in 10mm Auto
SIG Sauer's P320 line of striker-fired polymer frame handguns grows... bigger: the new P320-XTEN pistol features the best custom features of the X-Series models and many more, including a powerful 10mm Auto chambering!
The P320-XTEN 10mm Auto semi-automatic pistol expands SIG Sauer's already vast and wildly popular line of striker-fired, polymer frame service, defensive, and competition shooting pistols with a new, powerful 10mm Auto variant, offering all the best features of the X-Series models along with a wide array of improvements. The SIG Sauer P320-XTEN absolutely dominates the mightly 10mm chambering, and is an excellent alternative for duty and tactical purposes, personal or home and property defense, shooting competition, and protection against aggressive predators in the great outdoors!
The P320-XTEN features the X-Series accurized striker-fired, flat-face trigger; the trigger group (FCU) is enclosed in a serialized metal structure hosted in the reinforced black polymer frame: not just a new variant of the old P320 frame, but a completely redesigned one, to offer superior reliability, resistance, and better handling with the mightly 10mm Auto caliber.
Particularly the grip has been redesigned to be more comfortable; it doesn't feel like a 10mm Auto pistol grip at all, and the high-cut beavertail and front strap allow for a much higher grip, more in line with the barrel axis: excellent for controllability!
Other features of the P320-XTEN frame include an all-round slip-proof checkering pattern on the grip, an ambidextrous slide release lever, an ambidextrous magazine catch, and a lengthened Picatinny rail for accessories.
The SIG Sauer P320-XTEN feeds through single-stack metal magazines with polymer floorplate and elevator, holding up to 15 rounds in 10mm Auto. The new grip design makes the SIG Sauer P320-XTEN pistol extremely comfortable to grip and handle by shooters of any build and hand size, despite the high caliber and high capacity.
The stainless steel, Nitron-finished black slide of the P320-XTEN pistol features a set of aggressive front and rear serrations, comes from factory with SIG Sauer's own X-RAY3 day/night sights, and sports an optics mounting platform for micro red dot sights such as the SIG Sauer ROMEO2 1x30 or the Trijicon RMR.
The SIG Sauer P320-XTEN pistol is 216 mm / 8.5" long overall, weighs in at 936 grams (33 oz) when empty, and features a 127 mm /5" Bull barrel that offers superior resistance and service life even with the hottest 10mm Auto loads, while at the same time harnessing the full potential of that caliber in terms of performance and accuracy, allowing shooters to engage targets at 100 yards (over 90 meters) without issues with iron sights.
The SIG Sauer P320-XTEN 10mm Auto semi-automatic pistol is already available for commercial sales in the United States. Information concerning global export availability and pricing has yet to be released.
