Even though the Sig P320 X Carry is designed as a concealed carry firearm. The gun can also be used in a duty holster or an OWB competition holster. When choosing your Sig P320 X Carry holster, it’s very important that you decide what role you want the gun to fit. At least when you’re using that particular Sig P320 X Carry holster.
When shopping for Sig P320 X Carry holsters one thing to take into account is the role you plan to fill with that exact holster. If you’re choosing a holster for appendix carry, it’s \ going to be different than a holster than to carry concealed at four o’clock. Even more different from a holster you might run in a USPSA Carry Optics competition or a duty holster a law enforcement officer may use. We’ll go over all the different options here.
Sig P320 X Carry Appendix Holster
The muzzle of the holster is also very well rounded, so you don’t have to worry about the holster jabbing if you decide to carry at appendix or if you decide to switch the holster to the four o’clock position.
Another important factor to look for is what type of clip the holster uses. For example, our Singleton holster uses the discreet carry concepts monoblock. The advantage of using a discreet carry concepts clip is these clips will hold to clothing without wearing a belt, making your firearm a lot more secure.
The clip is also spring steel, so it’s much thinner than plastic options. Meaning the clip itself is less likely to print through your clothing. A clip like the discreet carry concepts monoblock is the perfect feature to look for in a Sig P320 X Carry concealed carry holster. This is a much better option than the bulky plastic clips most holsters ship with.
When carrying appendix you’re likely going to print if you do not have some sort of claw or weight on the holster, so we suggest adding the dark wing to the holster as it will help reduce printing. The dark wing will tuck the grip of the Sig P320 X Carry into the body so it’s not sticking out through your shirt or other cover garments.
It achieves this by leveraging pressure from the belt to press the grip into the body. The X carry has a thick grip so this is going to be a necessary feature for all but the largest of individuals.
It will increase comfort and also add a little bit of concealment so we suggest adding a wedge to the back of the holster. The wedge will help counteract the gun wanting to tip out away from the body. Especially with your blet and belly is pushing the gun in that direction.
The gun also tends to want to fall away from the body just due to gravity. The body is pushing the gun forward. On top of that, the weight off the magazine and slide pull the gun out away from the body. So, a wedge really helps that.
Sig P320 X Carry IWB Holster Strongside
Another feature you’ll want to look for comfort-wise is something with a rounded muzzle. That’s so the gun is not poking into your butt. Instead has a nice chamfered or filleted angle on the holster that can lay gently against your rear end.
Sig P320 X Carry OWB Holster
When carrying OWB you’re going to look for an Overt or Covert style holster. And Overt Holster is something you would mount to a competition rig, battle belt, or thick gun belt. Covert OWB holsters need to be low profile and concealable under a slightly oversized shirt or jacket.
For a Sig P320 X Carry holster for competition, you’ll want something like our contender. The contender is a competition and range-centric holster. Its designed to meet the perfect balance of speed and security. If you’re running your holster on a battle belt, I would suggest running something like our X-Lock as the belt attachment method.
The X-Lock is extremely secure and you can still get it on and off the belt if you need to. For the competition, I would suggest running the X-Lock or the turbodrop. The turbodrop is a very competition-oriented product and you will need to have a competition-specific belt to run the turbodrop.
So, keep that in mind. Most people will be best suited to the X-Lock. If you’re just looking for a Sig P320 X Carry holster that is quick to get on and off I suggest a paddle. A paddle holster is a great option for those that want something that’s quick to get on and off.
Covert holsters need to sit tight to the body. Sitting tight to the body has the obvious advantage of concealment but it also has the advantage of weight distribution. The closer the holster sits to the body less leverage you are giving gravity to cause sagging of the holster.
So look for a holster that hugs the body but also has substantial adjustable cant. The adjustable cant will allow you to maximize the concealment for your body type.
