Sig Sauer is the latest company to divvy up military-inspired goods, launching a commercial version of its M18 pistol, aptly named the P320-M18.
Built on the P320 platform, the 9mm chambered P320-M18 opts for a 3.9-inch barrel nestled in a compact slide. The gun also boasts a carry length grip module, we’d assume to make it a more viable option for those that want to slip this in a holster incognito.
The P320-M18 is nearly identical to its military counterpart featuring black controls, coyote-tan coloring, and ambidextrous manual safety. Weighing in at 28.1-ounces, the gun sits 5.5-inches in height with an overall length of 7.2-inches.
The Modular Handgun System was awarded to the Sig Sauer in 2017 and included the full-size M17 as well as the compact M18. Sig Sauer reported in July that since it was awarded the MHS, over 59,000 pistols have been delivered to the government. In July 2018, the company launched its first commercial variant of the MHS offerings by way of the full-size P320-M17.
