I am sure many of you have already read internet chatter or watched a YouTube video regarding the SIG P320 failing drop tests. This is true, false, and somewhere in between. To be honest, this is not “new” news. Word spread at the 2017 NRA Show about the SIG P320 having a trigger issue.

Ruger recently discovered that all Mark IV pistols (including 22/45 models) manufactured prior to June 1, 2017 have the potential to discharge unintentionally if the safety is not utilized correctly. In particular, if the trigger is pulled while the safety lever is midway between the “safe” and “fire” positions (that is, the safety is not fully engaged or fully disengaged), then the pistol may not fire when the trigger is pulled. However, if the trigger is released and the safety lever is then moved from the mid position to the “fire” position, the pistol may fire at that time.
