Sig Sauer recently launched a brand new .22 caliber pistol in their 300-series that has the gun community excited to get to the range and burn through some ammo: the Sig Sauer P322.
The new rimfire design was released to the public on March 22, 2022. The pistol features a lot of premium options and has been compared to the famous P365 XL thanks to its similar size, grip, and appearance, though the P322 is a design all of its own.
The compact pistol comes with two impressive 20-round magazines, two interchangeable trigger shoes – one flat-faced and one curved-face – and a thread adapter so you can easily use a suppressor or compensator.
It also features removable optics plate, ambidextrous controls, a slide release, an interchangeable magazine release, an M1913 accessory rail, and fiberoptic front and rear sights, among other things.
So, without further ado, let’s get into the specs and features of this exciting new 300-series pistol.
The Sig Sauer P322 is built with a number of impressive premium features. The lightweight, compact pistol’s high capacity, fiber optic front and rear sights, interchangeable flat and curved triggers, threaded barrel adaptor, and ambidextrous controls have made it the most advanced .22 pistol in its class.
The Sig Sauer P322 comes standard with two slightly staggered 20-round magazines, making it the highest capacity .22 pistol of its kind. The gun also comes with a magazine loader to make loading them faster and easier.
The P322 is built with interchangeable trigger shoes, and both a flat and curved trigger come included with the single-action handgun.
Slide and Barrel
This .22 caliber gun’s aluminum alloy slide is finished with an anodized hard coat to protect it from the elements. The 6.75” long and 0.99” wide slide also has other standard features like front and rear slide serrations. Enclosed in the slide is its SAO hammer.
The P322’s 4” fixed carbon steel barrel also comes with a uniquely-built threaded barrel. Unlike traditional threaded barrels, this one is a little bit receded. But the weapon does come with a threaded barrel adapter that makes it suppressor-ready right out of the box.
The adaptor is easy to attach to the barrel, making putting your suppressor, compensator, or other add-on onto the gun hassle-free.
The Sig P322 comes with fiber optic front and rear sights with a 6” radius. The rear sight plate is adjustable and can easily be removed to add a ROMEOZero red dot if desired. The rear sight plate is considered optics-ready, meaning you don’t need to use an adapter plate to install the red dot sight.
The P322 is built with a textured, compact, polymer grip. The grip has a similar feel to the P365XL, though it is not exactly the same. The pistol’s grip has a high undercut beneath the trigger guard, which allows for a higher, more natural grip of the weapon.
The new Sig also comes with ambidextrous controls. The only control that needs altering to switch between right- and left-hand use is the pistol’s reversible magazine catch.
