SIG Sauer P322 10-Shot .22 LR Semiautomatic Pistol

The excellent SIG P322 semiauto .22 is now available with 10-round magazines for restrictive states. It mimics other popular SIGs, so it’s an excellent trainer, but thanks to features like fiber-optic sights it’s a great all-around .22.

Handguns reviewed the SIG Sauer P322—a 20-shot .22 Long Rifle semiautomatic—not too long ago. At the time, there wasn’t a version available for those who live in restrictive states. Recently, SIG introduced a 10-round version of the P322 ($400).

It has a four-inch barrel and weighs 17.1 ounces. In many ways it mimics the company’s base-model P320 and P365 9mms, with the same control layout and the same basic grip shape and texture.

The magazine well has a slight flare to aid in loading, and there’s an accessory rail out front. The slide is serrated front and rear for easy operation.

SIG didn’t skimp on the sights. The front and rear are fiber optic, and if you pop off the rear sight’s plate, you’ll find the slide is cut for the firm’s Romeo Zero red dot and other sights sharing that footprint.

The P322 comes with both flat and curved triggers, which is a nice touch. There’s also a suppressor adapter for installing a can.

This a really versatile rimfire. It’s a superb trainer because it operates and feels like common semiauto centerfires, and for those who use a rimfire as a defensive gun, the size and weight of the P322 are in the zone for concealed carry. Similarly, it would make an excellent trail gun as well. With a light or light/laser attached to the rail it would work for home defense, too.

This is a gun you’ll just want to take on every range trip. It’s such a pleasure to shoot, and if you’re not trying to accomplish anything in terms of training or defense, the P322 is in the sweet spot for a plinker. And now, thanks to the new 10-round magazine, more people will be able to buy and shoot the P322. Which is a good thing.
