When ghostguns.com teased us with an announcement of an upcoming 80% frame insert for the SIG P320 we had a few questions. So we reached out to the good people at ghostguns.com and they were kind enough to provide some answers…which led to even more questions.
We don’t have a release date or price – but I can tell you the following:
1. The manufacturing process is identical to what is used on the compatible P320 from SIG; this involves forming metal into a blank (minus the holes). This process requires a bigger investment than billet but the end result is a product that we can sell at a better price than our billet products.
2. The jig is likely going to be part of the package.
We are working on a “grip module” to be included with our kit.
That’s about all I can share thus far.
Sounds pretty good, but I’m wondering about the “grip module” and finding the needed parts to complete it. I have a feeling this whole modular handgun movement might spur a whole new industry. With Beretta, FN, and SIG all offering modular handguns we could see more 80% frame inserts and aftermarket grip modules down the road.
If the explosion of aftermarket GLOCK slides and other parts is any indicator, I would bet on some seriously cool innovation in the handgun market headed our way. Stay tuned.
