SIG SAUER P320-M17 Pistol Brings the U.S. Army’s M17 to the Commercial Market


NEWINGTON, N.H. – -( SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the commercial variant of the U.S. Army’s M17 official service pistol called the P320-M17.

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.

“It was truly an honor for SIG SAUER to be chosen as the U.S. Army’s choice with the M17. When the selection was announced, civilian interest in the pistol was immediate,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc.

“We are proud to bring this P320-M17 to the marketplace to meet the substantial civilian interest, and the high demand, to own the pistol the Army uses as well as the other branches of the U.S. Military.”

The P320-M17 is a 9mm, striker-fired pistol and comes with two 17-round magazines. The pistol 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, available in three sizes, and comes standard with a manual safety. Non-manual safety P320-M17 pistols will be shipped at a later date.

    1. I work at a gun shop and if I have learned anything, it’s everyone has an opinion on what is the best make. Glock owners are among the most passionate. I don’t believe that Glock performs any better than Sigs, Barretas or Rugers. I prefer metal over plastic but see more and more plastic guns. I prefer hammer guns but more and more strikers are coming out. As far as the government bidding process, the government does very little well except spend other people’s money. As I said, everyone has their opinion. These are mine.

    2. The Sig P320 has a great trigger! I’ve got a collection of the firearms made for the modular handgun competition. They’re all great guns! Even the ones that were made and then didn’t enter like the S&W 2.0 and the Ruger American. The real winner is the American public, we have so many great options available now. Sorry for the states with the 10 round restrictions. Everyone else enjoys great freedoms, but even with the 10 round restrictions those states still have it better than many other countries. Practice with whichever gun you’re able to get. Buy good ammo for self defense. Clean and lubricate your gun properly, and they’ll last for your children. Learn the laws for self defense. There’s many great books available that you can check out from a library. I recommend Deadly Force, understanding your right to self defense by Massad Ayoob. That book is a keeper. You can get it from Amazon or other places online.

    3. Glocks are good but the trial wasmt a sham the glock very well almost one the contract but you forget the military is also a business and also the contract was being awarded for handguns that met certain guidelines one of those guidelines was having a removable chassis the Glock that they submitted did not have a removable chassis and even the one that was brought to Mark brought to civilian Market does not have the removable chassis this was one of the guidelines that’s why you see it in the FN FN 509 it has a removable chassis that was also submitted for the trials the reason why Sig won the contract was because it was because of the fact that they met all of the requirements and they probably offered it at the lowest price point, you have to remember the military isn’t just about protecting people anymore it’s also essentially just a government ran business grant so they’re obviously going to take whoever can give them the most bang for their buck

    4. Much appreciation to Sig for offering a manual safety version of the gun to the public. I wish Glock had at least offered the manual safety as their military version has the safety.

    5. Uuuuh, excuse me. The most exhaustive and rigorous testing in history? Really? That was a sham and anyone who knows how EVERY other weapon system in military history was conducted knows it was a sham. Please…..
      Glock should have been awarded that honor and that’s a fact. Yes, I own one Glock and that does not qualify me as a Glock fanboy but I do own a better pistol than the military carries.

        1. now that’s a bunch of carp – I’ve have sig 226 and 225 for over 25 years of carrying and NEVER had one single MF, FTF, FTE

    6. Any idea if these will ship with 10rd mags to capacity restriction states? Been looking forward to this for a long time. Would be upsetting to miss out because of that.

      1. @Mike, do yourself a favor, and get you a Glock of your choice, and all the hundreds you save, you can buy plenty of ammo for the range, and have a much better pistol. I know, each to their own, but I have several hand guns in all calibers, but my go to everyday carry is always one of the Glocks. Easy to conceal, all day comfort, easy to maintain,
        and won’t let you down. I don’t know if you like single stacks or not, but my models 42-43 hold six rounds, but I put mag extensions on both, and they hold eight rounds each with one in the chamber, so that will fit within your ten round limit. Just remember Mike, these are just my suggestions, and my opinion only, I know you will get what you like anyway. Hope this helps.

        1. I appreciate the feedback. I actually do own a Glock 17 and absolutely love it. I’ve also had a lot of fun at the range renting P320’s and would love to get one of my own. Carry is not an option for me anyway so every gun is a range gun, and I can appreciate what both have to offer.
