25
SIG Sauer won the XM17 Modular Handgun System tender conducted by the US Department of Defense and the now upgraded SIG Sauer P320 pistol, modified to meet the requirements of the US Department of Defense and dubbed M17 (shortened version M18), will be supplied to the troops. New weapon will be available in 9 × 19 Parabellum caliber, and the pistol is modular and can be easily converted to fire .357SIG and .40 S&W cartridges.


The new gun for the US Army will hit the civilian market


In addition, SIG Sauer announced the creation of a limited series of army pistols M17, designed for everyone.

A total of 5000 civilian M17 kits are planned for release. Sales should start in the spring of 2018, the price and a complete set of "army-civil" pistol SIG Sauer will announce shortly before the start of sales. Today it is known that a numbered commemorative coin and a letter of authenticity with the signature of SIG Sauer CEO will be included with the gun.

The difference between the civil M17 and the army pistol will be the ability to choose the location of the fuse (the button on the handle or the thumb box). In addition, the civilian pistol will lose a special solid lubricating coating for internal parts, which helps the gun to function in extreme conditions, reports "Warspot"

      Go to the states or to the shooting gallery. And then we have people legally extinguishing each other with axes and irons with bats. And when the trunk is in your pocket, most people are tempted to use it. Just give a reason. On the Moscow Ring Road and in traffic jams in general, the 3rd World War will begin

        People like you, literate, will start the 3rd World War. And adult people will not be tempted to have any, this is for you, not so good.

          And adults will not be tempted to experience any
          - Well, firstly, you don’t need to speak for all adults (especially not sober), and secondly, do not forget about those who are not adults (but according to the law they will have the right to a short-barreled gun).

      There is no need for a law on weapons; without canceling the enemy article "on exceeding" the necessary self-defense, there will be no sense from the trunks.

    NO prophets in his own country:
    OTs-27 "Berdysh" is a Russian pistol developed in the early 1990s by a group of designers of TsKIB SOO under the leadership of I. Ya. Stechkin and B.V. Avraamov.

    The development of a new army pistol capable of using various types of cartridges after replacing the barrel and magazine (7,62 × 25 mm TT, 9 × 18 mm PM and PMM, 9 × 19 mm Parabellum) was launched at the Tula TsKIB SOO in the early 1990s within the framework of the R&D topic “Rook”. For testing, the first prototype of the new PSA pistol (factory index TKB 0220) was made.

    In 1994, a pre-production sample of the OTs-27 pistol was presented at an arms exhibition in Moscow, at about the same time the pistol was removed from the army competition and further development was carried out for the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation. After TsKIB SOO became part of the Tula Instrument Design Bureau, the development and production of the pistol were concentrated in the design office.

    A number of OTs-27 pistols entered service with various units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation (in particular, private security and FSUE Okhrana). Since 2006, OTs-27 has been in the arsenal of the Russian prosecutor’s office as a weapon of self-defense for prosecutors and investigators
    In addition, since December 2005 they have been a premium weapon (complete with a pistol - 2 magazines and 36 pieces of ammunition).

    Quite the opposite. And beats with irons will forget everything. What if someone had hit a barrel В pocket. So they will all smile in the states and wait for the police to arrive.

      We do not have states; we have scumbags like Frol. For whom it is very important to shoot another person. They are only sober so right-winged. Ghouls. Yes, do not forget that just those who have a barrel in your pocket will come upon you

        Thugs already have a trunk in their pocket. It is not just normal normal citizens.

    Shot once from this - a civilian version in black plastic. The impression is twofold. Liked the descent is quite mild with a warning. Did not like the balance. The center of gravity is heavily biased. I had a feeling that I was holding a revolver.
    In general, "I would not vdul."

    Do not forget that in the US, you can buy and store weapons at home. To wear, you need permission. Based on this, draw conclusions.

      Therefore, during shootings, ordinary citizens very rarely find themselves in the hands of self-defense weapons. sad But for those who do not care about others and the Law ....

        80% of street criminals (hooligans) are detained by armed citizens, not the police.
        PS not to be confused with bandits, mafiosi and maniacs.

    A cool barrel, but one minus is the cost, although you can pay for the exclusive.
