Wilson Combat WCP320 Compact

The P320 pistol from SIG Suaer is built around an integrated Fire Control Unit (FCU) to house the trigger inside the pistol. As a result, the FCU is legally considered  to be the “gun” part of the gun, allowing for an almost infinite amount of customization using parts from SIG and other manufacturers such as Wilson Combat. 

Now Wilson Combat is coming out with the WCP320 Compact, which uses a Wilson Combat grip module similar to the SIG Sauer P320 X-Compact grip module, as well as a re-machined Wilson Combat Compact slide and Battlesights. All of these work together to create Wilson Combat’s smallest P320-style pistol yet, making it ideal for concealed carry and defensive use, with the reliability and performance you’ve come to expect from Wilson Combat. 

The polymer X-Compact grip module features a 3-slot section of Picatinny rail in front of the trigger guard for mounting your choice of lights, lasers or other accessories. The texturing on the grip has been updated for better ergonomics, enhanced traction, smoother reloading, improved pointablity and even more recoil control in dynamic shooting situations. The slide on the WCP320 Compact is machined with the Wilson Combat X-TAC pattern for improved manipulation under stress. The front and rear cocking serrations, as well as the slide top, wear the signature Wilson Combat serration pattern. 

The stainless steel slide and chromoly barrel of the WCP320 have an advanced black DLC (Diamond-like-Carbon) physical vapor deposition finish, with chromium and tungsten under-layers for long-lasting corrosion and abrasion resistance. The pistol comes standard with a SIG Sauer flat-faced XFULL trigger, which gives shooters a lower finger position on the trigger, which in turn increases leverage for a lighter, smoother trigger pull. As an option, the trigger pull can be further enhanced by Wilson Combat gunsmiths with a factory action tune using Grayguns custom trigger parts. 

MSRP for the Wilson Combat WCP320 Compact starts at $1295, and more information on this pistol as well as other products from Wilson Combat is available at
