The folks at Sig Sauer keep coming up with hit after hit.  Their latest one is the new P322.  The P322 is designed and built entirely at Sig Sauer in New Hampshire, USA! While the 322 looks and feels like the P320, it’s chambered for .22LR and loaded with features.  Features like an optic-ready removable rear sight plate, so you easily can add a ROMEO Zero red dot optic without the use of adapter plates.  The P322 also comes with a threaded barrel adapter, making it suppressor ready right out of the box. And with ambidextrous controls, interchangeable flat and curved triggers, and fiber optic front and rear sights, the new P322 is the highest capacity, most advanced 22 pistol in its class.

The P322 uses a stainless-steel slide with a polymer grip along with an aluminum slide.  No tools are required to take down the pistol. Simply rotate the takedown lever and remove the slide/barrel assembly.

While others have added magazine capacity to their 22 pistols, nobody comes close to Sig Sauer. They designed the P322 magazine to hold 20 rounds.  If that’s not enough, they also have a 25-round magazine available!
