Sig has started shipping a small quantity of P320 M17 pistols (commercial variant with manual safety) to their reps and we were able to get our hands on one for some photos and video. We’ll post the video next week once we finish editing but today we’ve got a pretty extensive set of photos to share.
We tried to provide some comparisons between the standard M17 and a P320 FDE to show the color differences. The part number of this M17 is 320F-9-M17. You can see pricing and sign up for stock notification on our M17 product page.
Feel free to post any questions and we’ll do our best to provide answers.
Manufacturers are starting to release some new items as we approach the fall. Last night we posted about Sig Sauer’s new M400 Tread and today we’re sharing a new release from B&T.
B&T has been engineering some really innovative and high quality products for the US market. We got our hands on a new USW variant for the Glock 17. It is our understanding that the USW-G17 will only work on Gen5 Glock 17’s and 19’s. B&T anticipates inventory hitting the states in about 60 days. Like the other USW kits, the stock is included but not attached. The end user will need to Form 1 the pistol if utilizing the stock to convert to a SBR.
Sig Sauer released a new variation of the M400 family today called the M400 Tread. The rifle has a 16″ stainless steel barrel (1 in 8″ twist), 15″ free float MLOK hand guard, ambidextrous controls, single stage polished / hard-coat trigger, mid-length gas system and Magpul SL-K stock.
The part number is RM400-16B-TRD 798681597765. Continue reading
B&T is releasing another new pistol, the GHM45. Overall the GHM45 is very similar to the GHM9 but obviously chambered in .45 ACP instead of 9mm. Continue reading
We posted some details today on Sig Sauer’s new BDX optics line and we also have new firearm releases to share!
Sig has released a few new handguns across the Classic and P320 lines along with some new MCX parts and a few more new Romeo optics.

We just saw this in one of the Facebook Legion pages (https://www.facebook.com/groups/siglegion/?ref=group_header) and thought it was a good time to update our fans on a few new / upcoming Legion related releases. The above photo is being distributed via email to Sig Legion members.
Sig is releasing three new Legion pistols that we know of. We do not have release dates on any of them unfortunately.
The first, pictured above, is the P229 Legion 9mm SAO. We anticipate the part number on this to follow the P226 scheme, E29R-9-LEGION-SAO (15rd version) and 229R-9-LEGION-SAO (10rd version).
We inquired with our Sig rep on the ship dates but nothing is available yet.
In addition to the P229 Legion SAO, we received news last week, while attending a dealer seminar, that Sig is also releasing a P238 and P938 Legion. We don’t have photos or any other details but they were referenced in the presentation and we were told that we could publish this scrap of intel since it was being disseminated already. We assume the part numbers will be 238-380-LEGION and 938-9-LEGION.
As more info becomes available we’ll post updates here.
Update 5/3/18 12:54 PM:
We’ve confirmed part numbers reference above are correct. UPC code for the E29R-9-LEGION-SAO is 798681591596 and the 229R-9-LEGION-SAO is 798681591541.
Update 10/30/18 8:07 PM:
Sig just started shipping the new X5 and X-Carry grip shells. We ran a pre-order and started filling those orders last week. A few customers received the grip shells and reached out to us because their 21rd (MAG-MOD-F-9-21) and 17rd (MAG-MOD-F-9-17) magazines wouldn’t fit / lock into the grip shells.
We did some checking and realized that Sig is updating the magazine floor plates making the tabs on the sides of the floor plates thinner. Continue reading
We follow quite a few Facebook groups to stay on the front line and monitor consumer discussions. There is a post in the Facebook group Sig Sauer P365 (https://www.facebook.com/groups/306851383159861/) by Phil Strader:
Again, thanks for everyone’s input and feedback with regards to the P365. There have been isolated incidents of the pistol’s failure to return to battery. Although this can possibly be traced back to a grip issue (whether unlocked wrists or high thumbs), we do not want even rare instances of issues to make our customers lose confidence in the P365. Therefore, we are tweaking the gun to improve RTB conditions. This will help to allow every 365 user to experience what so many have already expressed online in very positive reviews. We are making these adjustments now and will resume shipping very shortly. Thanks again for everyone’s patience. Continue reading
Reports started appearing on Facebook over the last week that some (not all) of the first P365’s shipped had defective front night sights (they didn’t glow in low light). A relatively small total quantity of P365’s have shipped to date (total quantity unknown but likely between 200 and 500). As more consumers received some of these early produced pistols, a few more reports popped up that front sights were defective. Continue reading
