“The Chosen One” Is SIG Sauer’s Video Series On The M17 Pistol

SIG Sauer P320-M17 "The Chosen One"

Much has been reported and written about the Modular Handgun System (MHS) program of the US Army in which SIG Sauer’s entry, the P320, won over strong competition from Glock, FN America, and Beretta, and became the M17, the U.S. Army’s latest service pistol.

With the release of the video series called “The Chosen One”, SIG Sauer chronicles the MHS program and is a four-part series that ends wanting you to keep a “piece of history” and get the P320-M17 pistol that the company made available for the civilian market.

In a press release from SIG Sauer, Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. said, “The selection of the P320-M17 as the handgun for America’s soldiers was a historic moment for the U.S. Army, and also for Sig as a company. This video series tells the story of the P320-M17 and archives the comprehensive selection process that was undertaken by the U.S. Army. It’s a tremendous honor to support the mission of the U.S. Army and provide the handgun that protects those who serve our country in harm’s way.”

You can watch all the episodes below:

Episode One – The Search Begins: A historical review of the U.S. Army’s sidearm leading up to the search for a new modular handgun system to meet the demands of the modern battlefield.

Episode Two – The Chosen One: The search for the U.S. Army’s new sidearm begins and SIG SAUER develops the modular handgun system that would become – The Chosen One.

Episode Three – The M17 Enters Service: The M17 is officially placed into service with the 101st Airborne at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

Episode Four – Own a Piece of History: The M17 is bringing a new level of capability and adaptability to the battlefield helping to keep America’s soldiers safe, and now civilians can own a piece of history with the P320-M17.

SIG Sauer also have the whole series on their website with even more information about the pistol in photos and in text.

We just wait for Cybergun to announce that they will be releasing a version of the airsoft market. We know that WE Airsoft are working on the SIG P320 Gas Blowback Pistol, it’s just a matter of tweaking the design make it look more like the M17 and even better, add the compact M18 to the airsoft offering.
