The SIG Sauer MPX is now shipping to stores near you.
SIG Sauer has announced that their first civilian production MPX is shipping to distributors and will be available in stores within the next two weeks.
This modernized submachine gun platform has been the talk of the town since its introduction at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Originally, SIG Sauer intended to release the 9mm, .40 S&W, and the .357 SIG, but had to break it down into two versions due to technical difficulties. Rather than further delaying the release, SIG announced that the 9mm variants, otherwise known as 'Version One', are in full production and will be shipping to distributors on a daily basis. Version two will consist of releasing the .40 S&W as well as the .357 SIG once the infamous feature of changing calibers in the field has been mastered.
SIG MPX-P (pistol), SIG MPX-P-PSB (pistol, with SBX Pistol Stabilizing Brace) and SIG MPX (short-barrel rifle) will be readily available as semi-automatic options for the civilian market. Additional options will be available to military and law enforcement.
Some may ask why everyone is so excited over the release of the first MPX available on the civilian market and the answer is simple: It is currently the only submachine gun that allows the shooter to change barrel length, caliber, and stock configurations all within a matter of seconds. The SIG MPX not only enhances operator safety but also increases reliability in the field with the use of a gas-operated short stroke piston system. Before the release, the SIG MPX was tested in extreme conditions and only further proved its adaptability. All in all, it is a really impressive gun and it's the only one of its kind.
