Today, SIG SAUER introduced the newest pistol into its modular pistol platform designs with the SIG P322. The new SIG P322 is chambered in .22LR. SIG looks for the new P322 to provide reliable, funny, and modular shooting .22 pistol to the market. Many shooters within the community are always searching for a reliable .22 pistol that can be used for recreation or training. Let’s see what SIG’s new P322 has to offer.
The new SIG P322 was built from the ground up here in the United States and not outsourced by the firearm manufacturer. The new pistol features front and rear slide serrations, optics ready, fiber optic front and rear sights, and it comes with interchangeable trigger shoes. The new P322 comes with industry leading 20 round magazines. The closest to it is the TaurusTX 22 Competition SCR. SIG also offers an extended magazine model that can hold 25 rounds of ammunition. For those gun owners who live in states with magazine restrictions there is also a 10 round magazine as well.
The SIG P322 does not feature a threaded barrel as many .22 pistols have. Yet, you can easily change out the barrels to have a threaded barrel to mount your suppressor of choice.
Below, is the press release and specs for SIG’s new P322.
NEWINGTON, N.H., – SIG SAUER is pleased to officially announce the P322, the all-new, U.S. designed and manufactured 22 rimfire pistol. The P322 offers an unprecedented 21 round capacity, is optics ready, and suppressor-ready right out of the box, all at an affordable price point.
“When SIG SAUER enters a new product category, we do it because we have exciting innovation to offer the consumer – the P322 combines ingenuity, quality, and value for a fun, low-cost plinking experience,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer, and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The 20+1 round capacity is an industry leader among compact 22 pistols, which means less time loading and more fun shooting on the range. The P322 stainless-steel frame and polymer grip was ergonomically designed for comfort to fit all hand sizes and is completely ambidextrous. Another shooter-focused feature is a modular trigger that allows the P322 to be configured with a flat or curved trigger shoe. This only scratches the surfaces of innovation that we have packed into the P322 and is just a few of the 21 reasons to love the P322.”
