In 2017, SIG Sauer was awarded the contract to provide a new sidearm for the U.S. military. The M18 is a 9 mm polymer-framed, striker-fired gun that is based on SIG Sauer’s popular P320 pistol. The M18, like its P320 predecessor, uses a combination of grip frame that cradles the fire control unit, providing you with an almost limitless combination of grip frame sizes and colors.
Now SIG Sauer is celebrating the acceptance of the M18 into service with the limited release of the M18 Commemorative Edition of the official U.S. military service pistol. The M18 Commemorative pistol shares the same components, coatings, and markings as the firearm that was awarded the U.S. Army contract for the modular handgun system (MHS), and was recently chosen as the official sidearm of the U.S. Marine Corps.
To complement the M18 Commemorative, an exclusive M18 Collector’s Case is available and features a slate-grey flocked foam insert and precision laser placement cuts for the pistol, the official serialized M18 Commemorative Certificate of Authenticity, and the serialized M18 Commemorative Challenge Coin. The pistol also ships with one 17-round and two 21-round magazines
