...the P320 FCU Custom Works program is a collaboration between SIG and third-party/aftermarket parts makers to offer a new degree of customization for the SIG P320 line of pistols. Consumers will be able to purchase the SIG P320 fire control unit by itself for $299. As the fire control unit of the SIG P320 is the serialized component of the gun, buyers will then be able to hand-select and order the components to complete their build – including the frame, slide, barrel, and other components – not only from SIG but from supported third-party manufacturers. After those parts arrive, the owner simply assembles their custom-designed SIG P320.


You’ll soon be able to purchase a P320 FCU as a stand-alone item from Sig and build it up from there with just the parts you want, like a bare AR receiver. This will be a great avenue to get yourself a personalized P320 without wasting money on parts you don’t want!

Hello: Now we will need more aftermarket stuff to support it. Thanks, Eric


Sig’s currently holding a multi-day event at the training academy where they specifically invited aftermarket manufacturers to show their P320 stuff and encourage more third-party support for the platform. Lots of neat stuff about it on Instagram right now:

Starting in 2025?  Tongue and cheek but this does at least appear to be a very interesting option


According to TFB, they have a “...tentative October launch date” so hopefully not too long!

Based on the info spilling out of the #p320collective hashtag on IG, this is likely to be much more than just the ability to buy a stand-alone FCU. Sounds like Sig is going to be offering a car-like configurator program that includes third-party aftermarket components from partner vendors. That would explain why the Wilson Combat WCP320 and Zev Z320 pistols were both announced as “in partnership” with Sig themselves, and why they had over a dozen aftermarket manufacturers up at the training academy over the last couple days. Aftermarket customization supported by the OEM factory would be a game changer for those of us who like to personalize our guns out of the gate. Formal announcement on Monday, we’ll know for sure then!

As SIG SAUER’s Chief Marketing Officer, Tom Taylor, told a room full of gun writers, accessory makers and even a few competitors last week, the New Hampshire gun maker wants their modular P320 to be thought of in the same way as the 1911 and the AR-15. They want it to be a “universal” platform around which revolves scores of parts, accessories and add-ons made by custom shops and parts makers all around the country. That’s why SIG has decided to sell P320 Custom Works fire control units as a stand-alone item beginning the first of October. You probably know that the internal fire control unit is the part of the P320 that’s legally a firearm. It’s the serialized part that requires a background check and transfer through an FFL. Every other part of the P320 can be and is sold over the counter. The grip, the slide, the barrel, the guide rod, sights…every other part can be delivered right to your door.



The stand-alone P320 Custom Works Fire Control Unit, to be sold at gun stores, will be an upgrade over the standard FCU that’s in most SIG P320 pistols currently sold. They’ve given them a gold titanium nitride finish and a Legion skeletonized trigger. You’ll be able to buy the FCU, then add your own slide, barrel, frame and other parts to complete the gun the way you want. Or…SIG is putting the finishing touches on a P320 configurator site — the P320 Studio — that will let you choose from a range of all the parts and build your own gun. So you’ll buy your Custom Works FCU at your local gun store, then take it home and register it in the configurator. Any parts you buy through the P320 Studio will get a 10% discount and be shipped to your door. As you’d expect, all of those parts will be made by SIG…at least at first. The reason all of those other makers were in the room with us last week is SIG will be including competing companies’ products in the configurator, too. Which is why they’re calling the entire program the P320 Collective...So eventually, you’ll be able to build your gun using the P320 Studio configurator and select from parts from a range of companies, mixing and matching the slides, sights, grips, etc.

Hello: It looks to be a good idea except I like a curved trigger over the flat one they offer. A curved or flat trigger option would be better or no trigger at all since you could add your own. Thanks, Eric

Not a deal-breaker.

Just add the OEM "Adverse" trigger for about $25

I’d be willing to bet as they add third-party aftermarket components to the configurator system there will be other triggers available as an option. I’m not particularly a fan of the gold trigger personally, but I put an Apex flat trigger kit in all my FCUs anyway so that takes care of that. I do like that the bulk of the FCU is TiN coated as it should make cleaning it much easier

Anyone seen where they state the trigger pull weight of this?

 

It's likely identical to the Legion FCU pull just like the AXG Scorpion is.  I asked the Legion Concierge at Sig about AXG and it's the Legion trigger.
