Max Michel is one of the most successful competitors in the history of the practical shooting sports. He is also the captain of SIG Sauer’s shooting team and is an integral part of developing products and gear for SIG. Now, SIG Sauer is releasing the P320MAX, a 9 mm striker-fired pistol that is optimized for competition at the highest level, specifically in the popular Carry Optics division.
