Guns & Ammo TV: SIG P320 X-Compact

Tom Beckstrand heads to the SIG Sauer Academy to get the inside story on SIG Sauer’s P320 X-Compact from Phil Strader, pistol product manager. The P320 X-Compact maintains the features of the full-size X-Series models, but presents them in a smaller package suited for concealed carry.

The X-frame offers a undercut triggerguard that works with an extended beavertail to offer the ability for a higher grip on the P320 than the original frame, which results in improved handling and comfort. The P320 X-Compact comes equipped with SIG Sauer’s X-Ray3 day-or-night sights, while sharing the M17 optic-ready footprint. This means that the X-Compact is compatible with the SIG Sauer Romeo1, new Romeo2 and Leupold DeltaPoint Pro series of red dot sights without the need for a custom adapter plate.

The accessory rail, four-sided magwell, 15+1 capacity, light weight and other features make the SIG Sauer P320 X-Compact an excellent choice for a red-dot ready concealed-carry pistol.

A guide on how to pair .223 and 5.56 NATO rifle barrel twist rates with bullet weights. Conventional wisdom says slower twist rates wouldn't properly-stabilize a heavy bullet. On the other hand, faster rates could over-stabilize lighter bullets. This is correct in theory, however, modern ballisticians have all but debunked the over-stabilization theory. All things being equal, it is better to have too much twist than not enough.Pairing Barrel Twist Rates with Bullets for .223 and 5.56 NATO How-To
