Taking into account the concerns of military and police training officers, the P320 provides an enhanced level of safety not found on most modern service pistols. Unlike its competitors, the P320 does not require the operator to pull the trigger nor use a special tool to take-down the firearm for cleaning or routine maintenance. With a partially pretensioned striker, the P320 has a short, crisp trigger pull with a quick, pronounced reset right out-of-the-box. Kept secure by the robust SIG Sauer internal safety system, the P320 has no external safety or decocking lever to snag or hang up on the draw. The reversible magazine release makes the P320 completely ambidextrous.
