Sig Sauer Model 320 Modular System Adopted By US Army

When the dust settled from the highly competitive contract there were only two firearms makers left; Glock and Sig Sauer. During the 2017 Shot Show it was announced albeit a surprise to the competitors that Glock had been dropped like Beretta, and FN leaving only Sig Sauer Standing.

To celebrate Sig Sauer broke out the bubbly and passed flutes around for a celebratory toast to those present. Breaking the 30 year reign of Beretta and it’s 9mm platform made people cheer out loud, especially service members like this one who had a strong distaste for the aging model.

Most of the current military and Iraq / Afghanistan veterans I’ve talked to have regarded the Army’s decision as legit and definitely couldn’t come too soon. Some of us old timers never dropped the 1911 as a mission pistol and some of the branches are bringing it back again.

“By maximizing full and open competition across our industry partners, we have optimized private sector advancements in handguns, ammunition and magazines, and the end result will ensure a decidedly superior weapon system for our warfighters,” Army Acquisition Executive Steffanie Easter said said in a press release.

In their statements, Army and Sig officials didn’t specify what caliber the new Sig Sauer pistol will be.

Sig touts the P320 model product as “modular” and “adaptable,” with interchangeable grips, multiple sizes and calibers that can be converted between 9mm, .357SIG and .40S&W. “From calibers, to pistol size, to the grip fit best suited for the shooter, the P320 is the most adaptable pistol available today,” the company says in promotional materials.

 

Milo’s Picks Of The Week

Gun aficionado and expert Milo shares his picks of the week at The Gun Room Inc.

First pick by Milo is the Sig Sauer Legion in .40 caliber

The Legion has an external extractor, ergo furniture, all metal construction and fits Milo’s claw for fast draw and target acquisition.

Milo’s second pick this week is the Remington RP9 in 9mm

While Milo doesn’t usually like plastic on guns he likes the Remington RP9 for a lot of reasons. The trigger is pretty good, it holds a goodly amount of ammo, and it doesn’t break the bank.

Last but certainly not least Milo’s first last pick is one of our favorites the Colt 38 Super Competition in you guessed it 38 Super.

Milo really likes the way it points and shoots but of course it’s a Colt and it’s a 1911 so nuff said there.

Keep checking back every week for more Milo picks, he works for peanuts so he’s paid well!
