Sig Sauer is expanding its Advanced Sport Pellet (ASP) line of airguns with the new P320 ASP air pistol. Chambered in .177 pellet or steel BB, the semi-auto, CO2-powered P320 features a 30-round belt magazine — the first air pistol in the world with one — and effectively mimics the look and feel of the Sig P320 centerfire pistol.

The Sig Sauer P320 ASP air pistol boasts a metal slide with realistic blowback action and polymer frame, not to mention the smooth slide safety, the press release says. It’s double-action only, has a front blade side, a fixed rear sight and a rail for mounting accessories like lasers or flashlights. Meanwhile, the 12gr CO2 cartridge is inserted and removed through a compartment on the side of the grip. This air pistol is capable of shooting pellets and BBs at a max velocity of 450 fps, but your mileage may vary based on weight, temperature and altitude.
“The SIG SAUER P320 has been extremely well received by law enforcement, recreational shooters and competitive shooters alike, and customers have been asking for a pellet version of this pistol since we introduced our very first airguns,” said Joseph Huston, vice president and general manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “The industry has truly embraced our ASP air rifles and air pistols as excellent training tools when the cost of ammunition, lack of range time or other factors prevent people from training with their centerfire guns as much as they would like or feel they should. We are committed to producing these high-quality, CO2-powered alternatives that make it easy for people to train in their back yards.”
