SIG Announcing Premium Competition-Ready MPX PCC Rifle

SIG Sauer just announced a new, competition-ready pistol-caliber carbine, or PCC. Called the MPX PCC, the rifle is good to go out of the box for gun games, range time and self-defense.

“The enhanced MPX PCC offers a more robust set of features making it ready to go right out of the box at the same price point,” said SIG executive vice president Tom Taylor. “Our team of engineers has incorporated improvements into the MPX PCC that will benefit the end-user of this product, while reducing the overall weight of the rifle by a pound. At SIG we are always looking to combine value with the quality our consumers demand from us, and the enhanced MPX PCC is a great example of this.”

Starting at the front the rifle has a beefy 3-port muzzle brake. While recoil isn’t a big issue with pistol-caliber carbines, in a competition environment every little bit of compensation helps.

Likewise the rifle has a free-floating handguard to get the most in terms of accuracy. The full-length handguard is modular with M-Lok slots and an integral forward hand stop. It’s a minimalist design with a short 12-o’clock rail for a front iron sight.

Like other MPX guns the PCC has a large and easy to use magwell for fast reloads. All of the controls are ambidextrous. The carbine also has an adjustable 5-position folding stock.

Every MPX PCC comes with a Timney single-stage trigger. Standard capacity is 30 rounds in 9mm Luger and rifles come with one translucent polymer magazine.

The MPX PCC has a 16-inch barrel with a 1-in-10 twist rate, an overall length of 35 inches and it weighs just 6.6 pounds dry.

The gun was built for Team SIG professional shooter Lena Miculek.

“When it comes to my competition equipment I want a rifle that’s reliable, accurate, and easy to shoot, and the SIG MPX PCC checks all the boxes,” said Miculek. “With my MPX PCC I move easily between stages, and I have seen improved speed, greater accuracy, and really elevated my competition to the next level. The enhancements that SIG has incorporated into the MPX PCC will make a real difference to the professional shooter and be quickly realized in competition.”

The MPX PCC is based on the MPX gas-operating submachine gun. While it’s built for shooting matches, it is also a solid self-defense carbine.

There are advantages to 9mm carbines for protection. They’re more affordable to practice and train with and muzzle blast is much less when shooting indoors. And 9mm gets a significant boost from the longer barrel.

Price may be a factor for some as the MPX PCC has a suggested retail price of $2,016. Current real-world prices for MPX carbines start around $1,700.  For more information visit SIGSauer.com.

    I do all right with Sub 2K at the different venue matches. After some upgrades from Mcarbo and a nice green dot. Still under $600. And it folds to 16″, without the mussel brake.

    Is there a military law enforcement deal from the factory for a sig MPX.
    I am just curious?

    The price does indeed seem high, but there are other competition PCC guns on the market that are comparably priced. As an active USPSA competitor I shoot a Form 1 MPX SBR. It is probably my favorite gun of the MANY that I own. It is soft shooting, accurate and reliable. I also own multiple AR 9 PCC guns, but the Sig is the one I reach for on the way to the match.

    I love my Ruger it is like driving a mini cooper! Way faster than I, in my PCC comps. It cost 500 and updates are on the way. Save ur dough. Great job Ruger. PS Taccom has some nice updates.

    $2016 msrp? $1700 starting street price? For a 9mm carbine? Somebody has to pay for Lena Miculek\’s endorsement deal with SIG, right? The best line in this entire article is this one \”They’re more affordable to practice and train with….\” Hahaha. Not if you pay nearly two grand for it they\’re not. And while you\’re at it here are the directions to some land I have for sale in the beautiful Florida Everglades.No, really, this gun will make you a better shooter. It really will. Buy this gun and you\’ll be shooting like Lena Miculek for only $2000. I don\’t think so. There are numerous truly affordable options available on the market that are light, fast, accurate, reliable and perfectly adequate for the people out there who spend the majority of money on guns…your average Joe. And your average Joe won\’t get an additional second\’s worth of better performance out of this gun versus numerous other more affordable options.If you want to spend a lot of money on a gun go German and buy an HK. If you want to spend money on something Swiss go buy some chocolate. The price on this gun is insulting to the intelligence of the shooting public.

      If sig want to make some cash they need to produce the 40/357 sig caliber conversion for the mpx that they promised!

      Sig need to keep there word and know be a producer or vaporware!

      Things are not worth what they\’re \”worth\”, they\’re worth what people will pay for them. A Picasso is just an old piece of cloth on some boards and some paint smeared on it. The value of it is for the people who appreciate it and can also afford to create a market for it that actually makes no real sense. (Unless you\’re an art lover!) And those aren\’t \”average Joe\’s\”. It\’s old hearing people whine about the price of this or that. It\’s a cool gun, it\’s operating system is different and arguably better and that R&D takes MONEY which is rolled into the cost of the firearm. And Sig does market their products so \”average Joe\’s\” will salivate over them and buy their product vs a whatever. That cost is rolled in there to. Again, the whining. It smacks of ignorance, not intelligence. And NO, I don\’t own one but I want one.
