The U.S. Army recently awarded SIG SAUER a $580MM 10-year contract for its New Modular Handgun System (MHS) after a much contested competition. The big winner seems to be the U.S. civilian consumer as most competing companies are releasing a civilian version of its entrants. The Army press release specifically stated “The Army determined that this MHS (full size handgun, compact handgun, ammunition, and ancillary components) was the best value in terms of its performance capability, the terms and conditions of the vendor’s proposal, and price.” This means that the excellent SIG 320 pistol that won (picture top) is not necessarily the best performer for YOU. We are particularly impressed for three of the runner-ups released in the last few months (picture bottom, left to right) the Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0, the FN 509 and the Beretta APX.
