3,222 Reasons to Like the Sig P322

I’ve been kicking the new Sig Sauer P322 .22LR pistol around for a couple of months and so far, it has given us over 3,200 reasons to love it.

Introduced in March– on 3/22 as a matter of fact– Sig’s first rimfire pistol since the much-disliked Mosquito was swatted about a decade ago, has been flying high. A hammer-fired 20+1 shot .22 LR pistol, the P322 uses an internal stainless steel frame inside a polymer grip while the pistol’s aluminum slide contains a 4-inch barrel, which gives the blowback-action rimfire an overall length of 7 inches.

I’ve surpassed a goal of 3,222 rounds of assorted factory .22LR ammo in testing– and are still going– including a mix of bullet types and velocities.

Sticking mainly with readily-available Federal and CCI/Blazer loads, I found the P322 especially reliable by rimfire semi-auto standards.
