This can’t be good for the Army’s XM17 program
The U.S. Army earlier this year awarded a contract estimated as being worth up to $500 million for the Modular Handgun System (XM17 & XM18 pistols). The winner of the competition was a variant of the Sig Sauer Model P320.
Now Andrew Tuohy with Omaha Outdoors (yes, the VuurwapenBlog guy who tested FireClean and said it was basically Crisco) found the P320 under certain conditions will go boom when dropped at some angles and with some triggers.
And did I mention that a Stamford cop is suing Sig in federal court because he picked up a bullet from his holstered P320 after it went off when dropped?
