If you are the owner of a Sig P320 or are thinking about buying one, you may have heard about the pistol failing a particular type of drop test. This means the pistol discharges or goes off when dropped on a hard surface like concrete. This problem is documented on several YouTube videos, and Sig is providing a fix for the problem. The videos below show you how to tell if your Sig P320 has been upgraded or not and what causes the P320 to fail a drop test.
Here is a great video from Sig Sauer’s website on the free, voluntary trigger upgrade for the P320 pistol. Check it out.

This upgrade is a no-brainer! You’ll get a safer pistol with a better trigger. The Sig P320 passes government required drop tests, but those drop tests do not comprehensively cover all situations. Check out the video below for actual footage of a drop test failures.
The Sig P320 is a fantastic pistol, and it’s not uncommon to see design modifications like this over time for any firearm platform, especially platforms that are long-lived. Personally, I would not let this issue keep me from buying a Sig P320 as long as the trigger upgrade is performed.
