German firearms giant Sig Sauer is selling surplus M17 handguns that were wielded by American troops in combat on the commercial market.
The striker-fired 9mm pistol was adopted by the military from Sig's P320 civilian model in accordance with the Modular Handgun System (MHS) program in 2017. The "coyote tan"-finished sidearm features a PVD-coated stainless steel slide with an MHS-specified optic cut for a red dot, as well as a medium carry grip module, an ambidextrous safety, SIGLITE orange and green sights, and removable rear sight plates.
Each comes packed exactly as the M17 is delivered to the U.S. military with a certificate of authenticity, one 17-round magazine and two 21-round magazines. Condition varies 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," Sig Sauer exec Tom Taylor said in a press release.
“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...which will make them coveted by both military and firearms collectors alike.”
The Sig Sauer M17 is available now to ship to authorized dealers. Exact prices weren't announced, but the P320 runs from $529.99 to $799.99 at Cabela's. Expect to pay at least a little more to own a piece of modern military history.
