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 ultra comps by changing port angles and efficiency.
With the new slide and comp had to come a new grip texture to fit the Tardigrade name. This is the most aggressive grip we have done to the point it may be too much for some. We wanted to offer the highest amount of grip possible that can always be dulled by the shooter to preference.

*RMR and SRO are the same cut but require different height front sights and will come cut at the rear of the slide with our IDRS rear sight. Please add a note to your order at checkout if you will be running an RMR or SRO.
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
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.
