After one of the most rigorous and highly competitive review processes in the history of military firearms, the SIG SAUER M17 was awarded the Modular Handgun System (MHS) contract for the U.S. Army. The M17 is a P320-based platform, and was selected for its uniquely innovative modularity, uncompromising performance, and unmatched capability. The P320-M17 closely follows the specifications of the U.S. Army's M17. The P320-M17 is a 9mm, striker-fired handgun and comes with two, 17-round magazines. The handgun features a coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slide with the same optic cut as specified by the MHS contract, and black controls just like the pistols currently being shipped to the U.S. Army; it comes equipped with a SIGLITE front night sight and removable Night Sight rear plate. The P320-M17 features a coyote-tan carry-length grip module.
I bought this gun two months ago and since have shot approximately 600 rounds through it. It feels exceptionally well in the hand. It is a very well balanced gun which allows me place my concentration on my target and my target only. I am very pleased at the quality of this firearm and would recommend it to anyone interested in purchasing a high quality 9mm. I do wish I would have done my homework though before choosing the model I did. I would have bought the model without the safety which allows different upper and lower convertion kits to switch to different gauges. But since I have a young son who will learn one day a safety is probably for the best🙂. If you have the opportunity then get out and shoot one to see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
