Considering that they're going to get the new P320's for just over $200 per gun, it's probably cheaper to just buy a whole new lot than it would be to recondition/rebuild all of their old 30-year-old, beat-to-death M9's.Eh, full disclosure, I'm a big Beretta fan. Never had a problem with the M9 and it's variants.
Since/if the Army is sticking with 9mm. Going to a whole new firearm is questionable in my opinion. They should have just stuck with the M9 or to the A3. But I'm sure the P320 is a solid gun.
I heard an interview on a podcast which suggests that the Contract version of the SIG may have some important differences when contrasted to the civvie version.I've had my P320 Compact for a little over a year, and have carried it most of that time as well. I love it, and am really excited at the prospect of the Army picking it up, hopefully it means that accessories will get a little easier to come by. So far, accessories have been a little in short supply, but definitely improving...
Like all those cheap surplus 1911's and wheelies when the M9 was adopted?Also pretty excited at the thought of really cheap surplus M9's...
