SIG SAUER Introduces SIG HT Hunting Ammunition in 308 Win

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

Newington, NH (April 3, 2017) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to expand its SIG HT hunting line of premium-grade rifle ammunition with the addition of 308 Win. Featuring an all-copper bullet that delivers deep penetration and maximum terminal ballistic performance, SIG HT ammunition is supremely accurate and ideal for hunting numerous species of game.

The 150gr 308 Win features a muzzle velocity of 2,900 fps and muzzle energy of 2,801 ft-lbs. This SIG HT 308 Win cartridge is excellent for mid-sized game such as deer, antelope, pigs and predators.

“SIG HT ammunition is extremely effective in the field, and our initial SIG HT offering in supersonic 300BLK has been in high demand because of its outstanding performance,” said Dan Powers, President of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division. “Retailers and their customers are asking for additional calibers in this lead-free, all-copper hunting round, and we will continue to expand the line to meet even more hunters’ needs.”

SIG HT cartridges are made with premium nickel-plated shell cases, and flash-reduced propellant is used to minimize visible signature while shooting in low-light situations. Premium quality primers are also used to minimize variations in velocity.

All Elite Performance Ammunition is manufactured in the United States by SIG SAUER to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles. For more information, visit

SIG SAUER, Inc. Awarded the U.S. Army Contract for its New Modular Handgun System (MHS)

Friday, January 20th, 2017

Newington, NH (January 19, 2017) – SIG SAUER, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Army has selected the SIG SAUER Model P320 to replace the M9 service pistol currently in use since the mid-1980’s. Released in 2014, the P320 is a polymer striker-fired pistol that has proven itself in both the United States and worldwide markets. The P320 is the first modular pistol with interchangeable grip modules that can also be adjusted in frame size and caliber by the operator. All pistols will be produced at the SIG SAUER facilities in New Hampshire.

The MHS Program provides for the delivery of both full size and compact P320’s, over a period of ten (10) years. All pistols will be configurable to receive silencers and will also include both standard and extended capacity magazines.

“I am tremendously proud of the Modular Handgun System Team,” said Army Acquisition Executive, Steffanie Easter in the release. “By maximizing full and open competition across our industry partners, we truly have optimized the private sector advancements in handguns, ammunition and magazines and the end result will ensure a decidedly superior weapon system for our warfighters.”

Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER, said “We are both humbled and proud that the P320 was selected by the U.S. Army as its weapon of choice. Securing this contract is a testimony to SIG SAUER employees and their commitment to innovation, quality and manufacturing the most reliable firearms in the world.”

Blast From The Past – AUSA 2014 – SIG SAUER Gives Us A Look At Their Modular Handgun System Candidate

Friday, January 20th, 2017

In consideration of SIG SAUER’s win of the Modular Handgun Program earlier today, we are sharing this story from October 2014, showcasing what the SIG P320-based submission looked like at the time. Congrats to Team SIG on this win.


At AUSA, SIG SAUER‘s Kevin Brittingham walked us through their candidate for the Army’s Modular Handgun System program which may replace the M9 Pistol issued since the mid-80s and is based on the Beretta 92F.


Although based on the commercially available P320 modular pistol, SIG made a few changes to be in compliance with the Army’s requirement.

-Tan Color
-Ambi Thumb Safety
-Lower Profile Ambi Slide Release
-Loaded Chamber Indicator
-Trigger Boot
-Firing Pin Assembly


Although SIG is very optimistic about their chances, they also look at programs like this as an opportunity to improve their firearms. Some of these changes may we find their way into the P320 and other SIG firearms.


According to SIG, this is what the winning MHS candidates look like.

Monday, January 16th, 2017


Available in February is the new P320X5 which is packed with bells and whistles.

The P320X5 features a redesigned grip with modular magwell. As you can see, there is a slight finger groove undercut and beaver tail. The magwell accepts a removable 35.5 oz weight. The slide release has also been slightly extended but not out beyond the width of the grip.

The flat trigger breaks at 90 degrees.

The 5″ slide incorporates lightening cuts along the top.

The P320X5 features a Dawson sight with an adjustable rear. Additionally, the rear sight is mounted to a removable plate which accepts the SIG Optics Romeo1.


This is the P320 VTAC. As the name implies, it was developed with Kyle Lamb of Viking Tactics.

Based on the new P320X series, the VTAC model has a full length FDE colored slide, but carry length dust cover. The lightening cuts are at the side of the slide.

This model also incorporates VTAC sights with Fiber Optic at the top and Tritium below.


Additionally, SIG showed us their Made in USA variant of the classic P210. Long a collectible, and expensive pistol due to its German manufacture, the P210 is well known for its fine trigger. This new model has a shorter barrel than the classic version and a couple of control features from the target model.
