|My first P320 circa 2014|
So I found a P320 TacOps to use as a host and immediately submitted the SBR paperwork. While waiting for my stamp, I sent the slide off to JagerWerks for RMR cut, serrations, and Cerakote. I also tried two different triggers, the GrayGuns Curved and Apex Advanced Flat Trigger with Apex's FS Trigger Bar.
|JagerWerks never disappoints.|

The module is a neat little piece of kit. The polymer feels dense and solid. Getting the serialized FCU in and out of the grip takes some effort. The grip is smaller than the medium module, and the slides are flatter. The cross section is more Glock-like in profile. The stock locks positively in the extended position, but I'm concerned that the polymer will wear against the spring loaded metal latch. A small spring loaded plunger sticks out the right side to push against the stock when it's locked closed. Pushing a small nub just above the Pic rail unlocks the stock and it swings out about 30 degrees. It's easy to flip the stock open with either hand. The stock locks closed with a very small molded hook. Again, I feel like repeated latching will eventually snap the tip off. It probably won't but I don't want to take chances. The stock closes flat on both my TLR1-HL and X300U weapon lights, although it does contact the TLR.
So how does the little rifle shoot? It's annoying. If you've every felt your cheek get slapped by the stock on a G3 or AK with a wire stock, this is similar. The angle and thin diameter of the stock rest directly under my cheekbone. I have to press hard into it to get my eye behind the RMR, so every time the gun cycles, I feel the slide impact and reverberate through my skull. With a suppressor, the back pressure sends hot particles right into my face, which is less than a foot behind the ejection port. However, shots out to 100 yards and one-handed shooting are a breeze. With the stock folded, all the extra weight makes recoil feel like a staple gun. Working indoors is much simpler due to its short length and light weight. Unlike my rifles, I can easily dial 911, work a doorway, or scoop up one of the kids and still have the ability to shoot accurately. So while I won't be shooting PCC or carrying the gun anytime soon, it does fill a nice role in the bedside HD safe.
