The diminutive new MPX Copperhead, semi-auto, 9mm pistol—an unconventional high-performance design, with familiar AR controls and handling characteristics—from SIG SAUER features a monolithic Elite Series upper receiver, with an integrated stock-knuckle lower (both finished in flat dark earth Cerakote), and a carbon steel 3.5-inch barrel with integrated muzzle brake. The MPX Copperhead comes equipped with the new telescoping SIG SAUER Pivoting Contour Brace (PCB), giving shooters a brace that easily adapts to the movement of the shooter’s arm with a patented swivel operation for perfect placement, and rapid deployment.
Completely ambidextrous, the SIG MPX is great for left- or right-handed shooters with its dual-sided safety switch, magazine release, charging handle and bolt release. It operates from a fully-closed and locked rotating bolt, offering enhanced reliability and safety in use. A short-stroke gas piston allows the SIG MPX to run all weights and brands of 9mm ammunition with no adjustments to the gas valve. Empty weight is 4.5 pounds, overall length is 14.5 inches and overall height is 8.0 inches. It features a full-length Picatinny top rail, single-stage, polished, hard coated trigger and comes with one 20-round polymer magazine. Pricing was not available at press time, but you can look forward to an in-depth feature review of this one right around the corner. Contact SIG SAUER; Tel.: (603) 610-3000; Web: www.sigsauer.com
