Interesting observations on my "Upgraded" P320 Carry in 40, and Caliber Exchange Kit in Compact 9 configuration.

I guess quick work doesn't necessarily mean clean work. Note pics. The one with the more obvious machining marks is my 40 slide.

Another note, the "standard" Sig box had no packing inside, as my smaller Caliber Exchange Kit case was flopping around in it. The result, both of my cases were scratched up more than when sent. Annoying to me because I tend to resell my guns of/when I want to get something new. Now my usually pristine boxes are now all scratched up.

On trigger feel, I'll echo the earlier post, no initial uncocked click anymore in the trigger, and also have to rack slide for every reset. Another observation on pulling the trigger, it slightly pulls the rear of the slide down onto the grip frame. You can notice this if you are looking down the sights as you pull the trigger - front sight looks like it dips on the break. I tend to shoot Sigs low to begin with, and intend on getting a shorter front sight anyway, but wondering this'll change my point of impact from before this "upgrade."

One plus, I did get 2 of the 25% off Sig Store coupon cards - one for the gun, and one for the Cal Exchange Kit. Sadly no extra mags as some have gotten - likely do to us being in MD.

Overall experience, I wouldn't do it again. I actually was fine with the trigger feel before. I merely did this for the purposes of having said it was done for the next owner...

Mine does this as well, both the full size slide and the compact.

The sig RX x-change kits are back in stock if anyone was waiting for them to use their 25% coupon on.

Im assuming that new made 320's come from the factory "fixed," right? Is there any easy way to tell whether or not it is "fixed" without looking up the serial number or taking whoever is selling its word for it?

I usually tell if the update has been done by looking at the trigger. The trigger will be thinner. I'm not sure if there was a fix done by Sig where the trigger remained thicker.

Pretty sure all new or upgraded ones have the skinny trigger.

Sooo...is the difference in thickness enough that you can tell just by looking at one, without comparing?

This is probably going to be my wife's next purchase...hopefully in a couple of months. If at all possible, we want to avoid having to send back a "brand new" gun...know what I mean?

I took a screen shot from some online images. Left is the new trigger, right is the old.

Also I got the full size RX 9mm kit, it came with a new low profile slide release.
