    Included in what?

    The recall?

    All 320’s are based on the same FCU.

    Vtac is just sights, maybe an extra slide serration up front?
    It would depend on date of manufacture, if the vtac was made before the recall date, it would be included in the recall, if it was made after, it wouldn’t need the safety upgrade, my friend got a vtac 4 months ago, it would have the current fcu without the need for the safety recall, if his vtac was made in 2016 it would need the upgrade, but the only way to know for sure, is to contact sig sauer, and give them the serial number of the gun

    According to the designer of the 320 it was removed after the upgrade and not needed. Maybe they should have left it in ?
    Yep, that's what I saw as well (quotes below from the article) Given that, I'm not sure why this article is even a thing, unless someone is disputing it.


    According to an internal memo uncovered in a 12 News investigation last fall, Sgt. Groszczyk referenced a conference call between MPD officials and Sig Sauer officials, including the P320 designer, Sean Toner.

    The memo said Groszczyk asked Toner if the current design of the gun does not need the safety lever spring for safe functioning of the pistol.

    Toner replied the safety lever spring is not needed in the current design and was removed from the design during the voluntary upgrade of the pistol, according to the memo.

    It is not immediately clear whether safety lever springs could have prevented unintended discharges.

    Apparently that WI department is disputing it. in my opinion the article provides a good reference for Sig to do some good testing if they haven't already to see if the spring not there could possibly cause any malfunctions. The courts involved in the suits may require it at some point who knows.

    Here we go again with the Sig bashing. I have a Sig M17, P320 Compact, P320X Compact, P365 and P322. I've put thousands of rounds in each of the P 320's and P 365. The P320 Compact is an early one and was sent back for the modification. Sig has been very quick and responded appropriately when I have requested support. I've been happy with my Sigs, but then again I haven't asked for the WI FOP President, who is undoubtedly an expert in this area.

    Sounds much more scientific and reliable than my way my friends way.

    Seriously though, is this something you could observe with the slide off the FCU/lower? Observing it on the fcu itself?
    Sorry, haven’t been on the board in a few days. Apparently they forgot to install the safety lever pivot pin when they built the FCU.

    It could be observed with the slide off. I couldn’t tell definitively at first because the safety lever was raising slightly, but it was obvious when I compared it to my M18.
