SIG P320 Max

If Action Air shooters would want a SIG pistol to use in practical pistol shooting, all they need to do is wait for an airsoft version of the newly announced SIG P320 Max Competition Pistol. Developed in cooperation with Team SIG’s Max Michel, the P320 Max is a 9mm striker-fired pistol that is optimised for competition especially in the Carry Optics Division of the USPSA or the Production Optics Division of the IPSC.

Making it competition ready, SIG Custom Works worked with Max Michel who shoots for Team SIG and is the 2014 IPSC Open World Champion has mounted a  a ROMEO3MAX optic with a 6 MOA dot which should make shooters happy as it makes it fast on target. The pistol has a TXG tungsten-infused heavy XFULL grip module and flat skeletonised trigger. As standard part of the package, it comes with four 21-round magazines.

The Custom Works Slide comes with Max Michel markings and custom serrations. It has a 5-inch bull barrel and the one piece guide rod is compatible with 1911 recoil springs. It is now available and shipping to authorized sellers. Price is $1599.99.

With SIG Sauer having its own airsoft division, the SIG Air ProForce, we might expect that they may produce a version for the Action Air use given that they have produced P320 gas blowbacks in the form of the M17 and M18 GBB Pistols with VFC as OEM. It’s just a question of when they plan on producing one for airsoft.

SIG Custom Works Collaborates with Team SIG’s Max Michel to Develop the P320MAX

ON, N.H., (February 18, 2021) – SIG SAUER is pleased announce the continued expansion of the SIG Custom Works series of pistols with the introduction of the P320MAX.  The SIG Custom Works P320MAX has been concepted and designed with Team SIG Captain Max Michel and is optimized for Carry Optics competition.     

“The is a highly anticipated SIG Custom Works release because it incorporates the extensive Carry Optics competition experience of Team SIG Captain Max Michel into both its function and design,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc.  “The P320MAX is a high-performance pistol built with the exclusive TXG grip module that infuses tungsten into the polymer material providing the weight of steel with the flex of polymer.  Additionally, for the first time in a SIG Custom Works build, we have incorporated a factory-installed red dot optic using Max’s competition optic, the ROMEO3MAX, making this pistol a great choice for the competitive shooter, or anyone looking to take their game to the next level.”

The SIG SAUER P320MAX is a 9mm striker-fired pistol, built around the TXG tungsten infused heavy XFULL grip module with a flat skeletonized trigger.  The SIG Custom Works P320MAX features a completely redesigned slide with custom wrap-around serrations for ideal side and top manipulation and is fit with a 5” match grade bull barrel, one-piece stainless steel guide rod, and both a 14lb. and 12lb. 1911-style recoil spring, allowing for an easily customized shooting experience.  The pistol comes standard with a SIG SAUER Electro-Optics 6MOA ROMEO3MAX, and (4) 21-round steel magazines.

The SIG SAUER ROMEO3MAX is an open reflex sight featuring a 30mm wide, round lens design for superior field-of-view, a special red-notch filter for vivid red dot and unrivaled optical clarity, available with a 3 or 6 MOA dot size for rapid target engagement, twelve illumination intensity levels, MOTAC activation, and up to 20,000 hours of runtime.

“From the first time I held the P320 I knew it was a game changer, and it has been an incredible experience to work with the SIG product team to provide input in the development of the P320XFIVE LEGION which led to the creation of the P320MAX,” added Team SIG Captain Max Michel.  “The P320MAX provides the perfect performance pistol setup beginning with the TXG grip module which softens the recoil and stabilizes the dot so you can get on target faster.  The newly designed upper adds functionality for better pistol manipulation during competition, provides a direct mount for the ROMEO3MAX, and looks great with the wrap around serrations.  I can’t wait to begin my 2021 competition season using the P320MAX.”
