PMM Compact Tardigrade Complete Uppers

Product Details

When picking a name for this pistol, the team at PMM wanted something that portrayed the use case of our P320 creation. We made the decisions for this pistol based on hard use and enduring performance. The water bear, or Tardigrade, is one of the most resilient creatures our planet and beyond has seen.

The Tardigrade is the next evolution of our X-Comp pistol from previous years. Starting from a blank slide we wanted to offer simple function mixed with our own look offering a design at the front end that is similar to our best-selling comps, profiling the slide in a way that utilizes a winged comp helps blend the two together for a more seamless look as well as the function of a captured design. The comp has seen many iterations in testing over the years and with some port geometry changes we are able to squeeze a small amount of performance out over our standard single port comps by changing port angles and efficiency.

The biggest difference between the Compact Tardigrade and the Tardigrade is parts life and versatility. The compact offers a longer recoil spring life as well as small parts due to the longer stroke and less violent cycle. What is lost in performance of a single port comp is gained in a wider range of ammo that will cycle the slide, as well as the gun running in more adverse conditions and less desirable inputs like around a shield or non-conventional positions.

The compact offers a new grip texture to fit the Tardigrade name. The grip texture on the Compact Tardigrade is not as sharp as the subcompact dual port. We made this decision based on the compact being a more well-rounded package.

Compact Tardigrade Upper component breakdown:

  • PMM machined compact “builder” slide in DLC finish or FDE PVD (RMR, SRO or Acro cuts offered)*
  • New Comp only available on these builds finished in Type III Anodize
  • New and improved in-house P320 barrel

Shipped in a new Pelican R60 ruck case which turns into a great storage solution for a medkit.

Optional RMR, SRO or Acro P2 with sale (Please note, the Acro P2 will ONLY be available to those who choose the Acro Optic cut. If you purchase the P2 without the Acro Cut slide, it will be cancelled).

Our IDRS cut omits the dovetail for use with our IDRS (Integrated Drop-In Rear Sight) with a front sight post. Can only be used with a Trijicon RMR or  Trijicon SRO. RMR cut not compatible with RCR optic.
All Acro cuts will be irons forward
All Tardigrade pistols will come test fired and will show signs of that, it’s a gun not an art piece for Instagram.
If optics are purchased with the pistol they will be installed and zeroed.
