The M17 is headed to the civilian market as Sig Sauer announced the new commercial version of the U.S. Army’s M17 service pistol — the P320-M17.
The P320-M17 closely models the Army’s M17, offering a 9mm, striker-fired design with two 17-round magazines. Coated in coyote-tan, the PVD coated stainless steel slide features the same optic cut as the MHS contract in addition to all black controls. Featuring a SIGLITE front night sight with a removable Night Sight rear plate, P320-M17 is available in three sizes with a manual safety. The pistol measure 8-inches in overall length with a 4.7-inch barrel and weight of 29.6-ounces.
The pistol’s modularity made it both a success in the Modular Handgun System selection process and will be its strength in the consumer market, according to Sig Sauer.

“It was truly an honor for Sig Sauer to be chosen as the U.S. Army’s choice with the M17. When the selection was announced, civilian interest in the pistol was immediate,” Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice
