SIG SAUER Releases Authentic M17 Military Surplus Handguns Commercially

NEWINGTON, N.H., (December 17, 2019) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is honored to bring authentic, M17 Military Surplus handguns to the commercial market.  The M17 Military Surplus handguns were manufactured under contract with the U.S. Army according to the original specifications of the Modular Handgun System (MHS).  This is an exclusive, limited availability offering from SIG SAUER and the condition of the handguns will vary based on field use. 

“The M17 Military Surplus handguns are a very special release from SIG SAUER, that gives consumers the opportunity to own a piece of history, and includes a certificate of authenticity,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales.  “These handguns were originally issued by the U.S. Army and fielded during the initial domestic and in-theater deployment of the Modular Handgun System.  The unique, one-of-a-kind, features of the M17 Surplus handguns include coyote controls, the original government-issue markings and serial numbers, and orange rear and green front SIGLITE Night Sights, which will make them coveted by both military and firearms collectors alike.”

The M17 Surplus handgun is a 9mm, striker-fired, P320-based handgun platform, featuring a coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slide, coyote-tan controls, a coyote-tan medium carry grip module, with the U.S. Government slide markings and serial numbers. The handguns are equipped with SIGLITE sights (orange rear & green front), removable night sight rear plates, and the same optic cut as specified by the MHS contract, and ready to fit a SIG SAUER Electro-Optics ROMEO1Pro Optic. The M17 features an ambidextrous manual safety, ships with (1) 17-round and (2) 21-round magazines, includes an official SIG SAUER M17 Certificate of Authenticity, and comes packed just as the handguns are delivered to the U.S. Military.

    So, if it’s like any other surplus gun sale they will most likely want more than purchasing a new one so why bother?

    How much are they and how do we buy them?

    The Sig Sauer website says to contact your local dealer for price and availability.

    What I do not understand is why Sig Sauer can sell modern military surplus pistols with ease
    and old surplus 1911 pistols through the CMP are controlled as if they were nuclear warheads.

    So how do we by them?
