The Sig Sauer 320 pistol proved to be an instant hit when it was first released. Interest in the striker-fired polymer gun only intensified when a 320 variant won the XM Modular Handgun System competition for a new pistol for the Army and Air Force.  Now that production models are reaching the troops SIG Will Offer the Army New Pistol to Civilians SIG M17 Canadian Update

The U.S. Army’s new M17 sidearm and points out some of the differences between the military’s variant and winner of the landmark Modular Handgun System contract and the standard Sig Sauer P320. Besides the manual safety– an Army requirement– Morovitz also goes into detail on the removable top plate for a Leupold DeltaPoint Pro sight, which is a big move for a MIL-STD handgun meant for the common Soldier in the field.

 

Also on hand was the M18, which uses the same chassis in a smaller frame, ideal for use by senior officers, aircrew, and CID types. SIG M17 Canadian Update

Though based on the P320 series of modular handguns, both Sig and the military have stressed that the M17/18 series are not the same animal as their civilian predecessor. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley went on record last year, saying, “[T]he guts and the internals of the military version of that weapon are different than what you’re going to buy in the gun store or what police are going to be fielded.”

The first batches of the M17/18 were issued to troops of the Fort Campbell-based 101st Airborne Division last November as part of a 190,000-pistol initial buy. The platform will then be fielded to a new installation each month until September 2018, except for next March and April.
