SIG Sauer Launches M17 September Sweepstakes

posted on September 11, 2018

SIG Sauer launched a free September 2018 Sweepstakes in which a lucky participant will win one of the 5,000 M17-Commemorative pistols made by the company with all the same coatings, markings and components as the version recently adopted by the United States Army for its Modular Handgun System (MHS). No purchase is necessary, although certain rules and legal limitations apply.

The gun will ship in the same cardboard packaging as delivered to the military, but upon receipt and registration with SIG Sauer, the owner will receive an M17 Collector’s Case to complement the pistol. It’s made from solid cherry with a dark mahogany stain, has a tempered glass top, nickel latch and a brushed-steel SIG Sauer M17 logo is affixed to the precision laser cut slate-grey foam insert to hold the handgun. An M17-Commemorative Certificate of Authenticity and Commemorative Challenge Coin—both with serial numbers matching the firearm—are also included with the case.

“The M17 was selected by the U.S. Army for its uniquely innovative modularity, uncompromising performance and unmatched capability,” said Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, commercial sales, of SIG Sauer. “The M17 redefined the definition of the combat handgun forever making it a true collector’s item. With the limited manufacturing run, we wanted to offer this extended sweepstakes to expand the opportunity for military, firearms and SIG Sauer enthusiasts to own the M17 Commemorative.”

The 9 mm M17-Commemorative is striker fired and comes with two 21-round magazines and one 17-round magazine. The pistol features a coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slide with the same optic cut as specified by the MHS contract, coyote-tan-colored controls just like the original pistols shipped to the 101st Airborne and a manual safety. It’s equipped with a SIGLITE front night sight, removable Night Sight rear plate and comes with a coyote-tan carry-length grip module.

Sweepstakes entries are open and will be accepted through Sept. 21.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
