The Strike Modular Chassis (SMC) – ALPHA for SIG SAUER P320 (Standard) by Strike Industries is THE MOST MODULAR SIG SAUER P320 CHASSIS IN THE WORLD. With included and sold separately optional SMC parts and accessories, 20+ configurations possible for each user to setup exactly how they want it. Machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, this P320 chassis is sturdier and more durable than polymer for hard use. The SMC Standard length is setup to be a match for the full-size P320 4.7” slide and barrel. When used with a Carry/Compact P320 3.9” slide and barrel, the SMC chassis dust cover will overhang past the muzzle. SMC Standard use with P320 3.6” slide and barrel is not recommended. Included in the box is an Ambidextrous Side Charging Handle with Slide Cover Mount so each SMC user can decide which side you want to rack the slide with. The SMC Rear Module Backstrap is pre-installed on the SMC chassis which gives the user rear ambidextrous QD sockets and a rear Picatinny rail mount to attach any accessories. The SMC Multi-Optic Mount allows you to use just about any Mini/Micro Red Dot Sight (MRDS) on the market with footprint fitment for C-More, DeltaPoint Pro, Docter/Noblex, RMR, Shield and all SIG SAUER Open Reflex Sights. The SMC chassis and optional to use Spare Magazine Holder for SIG SAUER P320 both include the SI Modular Magazine Release and is pre-installed. The Strike Modular Chassis (SMC) is the new modular standard for the SIG SAUER P320 platform. Simply insert a P320 FCU (9mm/.357SIG/.40S&W) and complete slide assembly along with your favorite SMC accessories and you are ready to go.
When Strike Industries announced their Strike Modular Chassis (SMC) for the SIG Sauer P320, I was intrigued. Strike Industries sent out their SMC in for this review as well as some recently released upgrade parts for it. So let us dive in and take a closer look at their modular chassis.
I removed the slide from the frame and the entire slide cover mount just slid right out. The part that is held captive broke off and is still retained in the slide.I like the fact you can set up the Strike Modular Chassis to your personal preference. You can have a slide-mounted optic or install the optics bridge for a fixed optic. In order to have a slide-mounted red dot option on a FLUX Raider requires a permanent modification where you remove the fixed bridge. I would like to see a Picatinny optics bridge so you can use normal red dots and not just mini red dots normally mounted to pistol slides. An optics bridge cut for Aimpoint Nano, Acro and Steiner MPS would be nice. The entire chassis is precision-milled aluminum so it is arguably stronger than a polymer chassis.I removed the broken parts. You can see how thin the metal is so it is not a surprise that it broke, Also having the charging handle on the left side means there is added torque applies to that thin part. Luckily I brought the factory slide cover plate with me. It was in the brown box you see in the photo below. So I swapped it back in and the gun ran fine.If you want customization that just requires bolting on or unbolting parts for a customized setup then the Strike Modular Chassis might be for you. Go to the Strike Industries website for more information.The Blast Shield helps to protect your support hand thumbs as well as lengthen the accessory rail. With the spare magazine holder on the modular chassis, there is no room to add a pistol-mounted light. The Blast Shield allows you to mount small compact lights but sadly not full-size like a SureFire X300 or Streetlight TLR-1.Another issue I had seemed to stem from running a compact slide. I am using a P320 RXP XCompact slide on the SMC, the same slide I use on my current FLUX Raider setup. Also the same FCU. However in the Strike chassis, with the Optics Bridge installed, the slide moves so fast that it bumps the chassis and causes the slide catch to bounce up every shot. If the optics bridge is not there, the slide catch will still bounce but it clears the slide and the gun continues to cycle. I tried my friend’s compact slide with Parker Mountain Machine comp and it ran fine. The slide seems to move more slowly and the slide catch stays still. I also did not have issues when I ran my full-size M17 slide.
According to my contact at Strike Industries, the tolerances of the SMC are very tight. However, the FCU rails for the slide are merely folded metal. They are not precision machined. So there can be some slight tolerance issues that show up like in the case of the optics bridge getting hit. The spare magazine holder does not allow the spare magazine to sit up higher. You can see a triangular protrusion at the front face near the bottom of the mag holder. That is the magazine catch and release. The spare mag holder comes with a factory-installed mag catch extension. I found that the extension would hit my palm when I grab the mag holder for support. See the pictures below. The extension sticks out rather proud of the holder. I thought about switching the button to the other side and pressing it with my ring finger but it sits behind the second knuckle. It is still awkward to press it that way so I ended up simply removing the extension. The mag holder is more comfortable to grasp but removing the magazine is not as natural as I would like. I would prefer a friction fit setup rather than an actual mag catch.Strike Industries sent me their SMC Alpha chassis. It came with some extras like gray grip panels and the Lego mini figure compatible SMC toy gun. At the time of writing this article, the SMC Alpha comes with the following:
The comps come with a screw that you can turn with your thumb but when it sits down in the recess, it helps to use a tool. There is a slot cut into the top that is perfect for a coin.
