Range Video: SIG Sauer M17 Pistol

posted on January 22, 2018
SIG Sauer made news in 2017 with the announcement that the M17, based on the modular P320 pistol, had won the U.S. military contract for the Modular Handgun System. Subsequently, the company has worked diligently over the past year to fulfill its contract, with the first pistols being delivered to members of the 101st Airborne in late 2017.

However, many in the commercial market are eager to get their hands on the new M17, especially considering that the new pistol includes several features not found in the standard P320 lineup, like the mil-standard FDE Cerakote finish, a manual thumb safety and a milled slide plate designed to accept micro red-dot optics.

Due to the gun's similarity with the modular P320 platform, the grip modules used on the M17 are interchangeable with other grip modules designed for the P320 lineup, making it a great addition to any P320 owner's collection.

Review: Maxim PDX Pistol

The Maxim PDX line is, in many ways, the ultimate expression of the PDW concept. It’s a small, easy to handle AR-pattern firearm that uses either Maxim’s superb PDW brace in the pistol model or a collapsible stock when sold as a short barrelled rifle.
