"I took out a Chihuahua!"
This is a FWIW - i.e., draw your own conclusions (pun intended) … that said, I enjoy my (357 Sig) 320, but only as a range toy:
Yeah this guy is burning up on the Sig forum I'm on.
they are talking about a broken spring but I don't buy it for a moment. the dude says he holstered the weapon, raised his hand and discharged. Springs don't break unless they are flexing. if it had flexed during the holster, it would have gone off with his hand on the weapon.
He's a youtuber who films EVERYTHING but no video of the discharge? Nope I call BS. he had his finger on the trigger when he holstered. until I see video of one of these things discharging on their own, it's operator error.
Springs don't break unless they are flexing.
the thing is, this guy's reputation is being a gun "expert". I'm not saying I'm and expert, but I've handled weapons since I was in the Navy, and owned and maintained my open since I was 21. I'd consider myself KNOWLEDGEABLE.
one day I was disassembling and cleaning and i picked up the 938. I could has sworn on a stack of bibles that I had cleared it. pulled the trugger put a groove in the table and a slug in the bathroom wall. but at least I'm mane enough and honest enough that I was negligent. this guy will never admit it.
Oh, and @OkieStubble the other possibility.. this fool monkeyed around with the FCU and it bit him
I didn't watch doofie's video, as my rather virulent dislike of most people is not improved by such input, but...Excellent observation. I didn’t even think, he might have fiddled around with it.
Does he have “expert gunsmith” written in his title anywhere?
Only thing more dangerous then a defective gun, is an “expert” with a perfectly working gun.
Agreed. Many don’t like the inherent travel in a striker fired trigger, because they’re used to slow methodical target shooting for accuracy. But the speed of combat shooting requires slapping the trigger and good slapping requires a bit of travel.I didn't watch doofie's video, as my rather virulent dislike of most people is not improved by such input, but...
I can't remember if the Sig OEM flat trigger has adjustments, but all of the aftermarkets do. "Some people," like to adjust the take-up to "0", which is a really bad idea on a striker fired pistol, even going so far as to buy longer set screws at times.
Like a bad penny, that P320 just keeps coming back in the news
Once all of the OTHER (Glock, S&W, HK, Steyr & Ruger, & Sig P365, to name just a few) striker-fired AD lawsuits have been settled… oh, wait
Police and federal law enforcement officers are among 20 people from multiple states saying they were wounded by a popular type of Sig Sauer pistolabcnews.go.com
Yes, 20 folks in this most recent lawsuit … and while one of the many earlier lawsuits has been dismissed, yet another one saw Sig having to fork over $10,000,000 in a settlement. Let’s see, how much does add up to per P320s sold?I agree.
The lawsuit consists of 20 people. How many has Sig sold now? 20 out of? Pretty good percentage.
