The IDPA World Shoot took place this last week in Oklahoma. Today, the internet is up in a huff about a shooter at the World Shoot who was DNF’d at the match because he was registered in SSP division and had a stippled grip module on his Sig P320.
The SSP rules say the following:
188.8.131.52.16 Stippling and texturing may be performed on readily replaceable parts of the grip frame such as replaceable back straps and replaceable grip panels.
Is the Sig P320 grip module a readily replacable part? Scott Springer from Springer Precision recorded the following video, which, to me, proves that it is:
Sip P320 grip module change.

With that said, the Sig P320 is a little more than a “grip panel” or a replaceable backstrap, but it is readily replacable, and it isn’t the frame (which on this pistol is completely separate from the grip module).
What say you? Should a stippled P320 be legal in SSP?
Would it change your mind if I told you that I’ve also heard that this shooter shot the same gun at S&W Indoor Nationals and passed equipment check there?
