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

We've recently been able to order and expect to receive a variety of P365 related parts.
There are quite a few reasons to have spare parts available, perhaps most importantly in the event that the firearm becomes discontinued. This is not likely anytime soon with the P365 but we did recently have a customer needing spare parts for his Sig 556 variant (non -XI 556) and we could barely locate any parts.
Here are the parts that will be available very soon: Continue reading
Phil Strader, of Sig Sauer, put out some frequently asked questions and answers for the P365. These seem to be recurring inquiries.Hello all,P365 production is still increasing as we continue to build capacity to meet incredible demand. We have shipped tens of thousands of P365s with overwhelmingly positive responses not only from our commercial customers, but from law enforcement and professional end users around the world. In my 25 years of law enforcement and industry experience, I have rarely seen this level of excitement and positive reception around any single firearm. Although there have been a limited number of striker and trigger return spring issues with this new platform, our return rates for these two parts are still extremely low…approximately 0.25% combined, which we believe is below industry standards for any type of return.The P365 has received an unprecedented amount of praise and activity both in social and traditional media. However, in the age of the internet, readers are sometimes exposed to grossly inflated or even non-existent issues. To address some of these concerns, we have compiled the most prevalent questions we’re seeing online and in our customer service department.
