SIG Sauer Roland Special – Springer Precision P320 9mm ‘Shorty’ Compensator Review

I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of the so-called “Roland Special”, long before I even knew it was named such a thing.  The general concept is a compact pistol, carrying a weapon mounted light, with a short compensator, bringing it to the same overall length of its long slide counterparts.  Like a Glock 19 with a compensator giving it an
