First Look: SIG Sauer Threaded Barrels for P320 Handgun

posted on June 24, 2021

The SIG Sauer P320 was introduced in 2014, creating unmatched flexibility and adaptability for American pistol owners. The P320 platform allows you to quickly change almost anything about your pistol, including caliber, slide length and frame size.

Part of a pistol’s flexibility is what you add to the barrel itself, and the most common way to perform that task is to add threads to the muzzle of the barrel. This allows you to attach common muzzle devices such as a compensator, which direct a portion of the gasses from the pistol upwards to control recoil. A threaded barrel also allows you to attach a suppressor to your pistol, such as the SIG Sauer MODx-9 or SRD-9 9 mm suppressors.  

A suppressor dramatically reduces the amount of noise and muzzle blast that comes out from your gun, and they are an excellent way for new gun owners to become more accustomed to the mechanics of shooting. The process of adding a suppressor to your pistol begins with adding a threaded barrel, and SIG Sauer is making it easy to do this with your P320 Compact, XCompact and Subcompact pistols.  

These two new barrels allow you to attach your muzzle device or suppressor to your gun. These 9 mm threaded barrels are designed to function with SIG Sauer factory slides with loaded chamber indicators.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
