The Beretta 92 (M-9) and the Sig 320 (XM-17): U.S. Army Upgrades to the MHS

We have written a lot lately about the Sig 320.  It has won the ICE contract and was recently selected by the Army as the winner of the Modular Handgun System (MHS) competition.  In the latest news, Glock  filed a protest with the government about the Army awarding the MHS contract to Sig Sauer. This adds complexity to an already difficult topic.

The team at TacticalGear.com has created a great infographic comparing the Sig Sauer P320 to the Beretta M9 at a glance, explaining the Army’s decision to change to Sig Sauer.

To understand why the Army made the change, it’s vital to compare the performance and construction of the P320 and M9. The P320’s modularity is a key benefit, but not the only difference between these two handguns. This infographic strips these pistols down to their basic functionalities to compare them side-by-side.
