I previously posted on the SIG_Sauer P320, the handgun platform that the new M17 Modular Handgun System is based on, but with the official acceptance of the M17 by all of the US services as the replacement to the M9, I figured I’d give it another showing…

The new M17 MHS is based on the P320 family of handgun and features interchangeable grip modules and panels, has suppressor support with a threaded barrel, interchangeable slide lengths, and an integral optics mounting plate and a rail system. Instead of the double/single action hammer-fired mechanism of the M9 pistol, the M17 uses a much simpler striker-fired design pioneered by the Glock.
