On the ground at in Indianapolis for the 152nd NRA Annual Meeting last week, we caught up with SIG to check out some of their newest handguns and optics. 

The New Hampshire-based company has updated its much-liked P320 Spectre Comp model for 2023 by dropping the gold accents and keeping the performance to make it the Spectre Comp Blackout

The original P320 Spectre Comp, developed by SIG Custom Works early last year, features a laser-stippled LXG Tungsten XSERIES grip module fit under an optics-ready slide that includes custom serrations featuring an optic plate and rear dovetail sight. Inside the slide is a titanium nitride gold barrel with an integrated compensator, while a set of X-RAY 3 day/night sights ride on top. The flat-faced XSERIES straight trigger also carries a TiNi finish. 

SIG has the original Spectre Comp and has given it an all-over Cerakote Elite Series Blackout finish while deleting the gold TiNi-finished trigger and barrel.

A little less bling than the prior P320 Spectre Comp, the Blackout has a subtle two-tone effect due to the laser stippling on the frame that allows the Tungsten grip module's gray construction to show through. (Photo: Guns.com)

The SIG Custom Works P320 Spectre Comp Blackout ships with a pair of 21-round steel magazines – or 10-rounders in restricted states – along with a Custom Works coin and certificate of authenticity.

 

Robin's Egg P365-380

 

An expansion of the company's .380 ACP-chambered P365 variants, the new micro compact carry gun ditches the traditional black-on-black color scheme for a Robin's Egg blue grip module that carries a nickel-finished stainless-steel slide and matching surface controls.

Meanwhile, the trigger, sights, slide optics plate, magazine base pads, and carbon steel 3.1-inch barrel all retain their traditional black finish.

Romeo M17 Micro Red Dot

 

Designed specifically for use on the U.S. Army's M17 and M18 Modular Handgun System pistols-- which means it will work on surplus guns and M17/M18 Commemorative models but not standard commercial P320s-- the SIG Romeo M17 was officially debuted at Indy last week. 

Of note, the Romeo M17 is a mil-spec, fully enclosed and gas-purged red dot reflex sight with a distortion-free glass aspheric lens and a 2 MOA dot/32 MOA circle reticle, and is built to take a lot of abuse. This includes being submersible to depths up to 35 meters and having a flexure-arm adjustment system made of the same Beryllium Copper, all protected inside a 7075 aluminum housing. This while having a  minimum continuous runtime of 50,000 hours and 15 different brightness settings for both daylight and night vision use.
