The US Army has selected the Sig P320 to replace the Beretta M9 service pistol. I’ve never been a huge fan of Sig however that bias is really not based on much. I owned a Sig 2022 9mm several years ago and did not care for it. I need to check out the P320.
The Sig Sauer P320 is a modular pistol in that it has an internal chassis that can be moved from frame to frame to accommodate different configurations – and calibers.
The Sig was selected over other contenders such as the Glock 17 and 19 so obviously it performed extremely well. Reading over at Sig’s website I’m very intrigued. The ability to adapt the pistol to a variety of different configurations and calibers is a huge advantage over buying multiple firearms.
So what caiber did the Army choose? From my understanding is they haven’t. The have the option to use 9mm, .40S&W, and .357 Sig. I am sure by far 9mm will be the caliber utilized.
