SIG Sauer: New Products and MCX Recall

SIG Sauer has hit the ground running in 2017 with new products. Just weeks away from the firearm industry’s biggest trade show, the NSSF SHOT Show in Las Vegas, SIG is already releasing a couple of new niche products. Late in 2016, SIG also announced a recall on MCX rifles that may have a slight defect in the bolt carrier.

SIG Sauer ASP Introduces New P320 Air Pistol

SIG SAUER, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world’s most reliable firearms, optics, ammunition, airguns and accessories, adds to its world-class Advanced Sport Pellet (ASP) line of airguns with the introduction of the new P320 CO2-powered pistol.

This semi-automatic .177 caliber ASP pistol is the first air pistol in the world to feature a 30-round belt magazine and is designed to look and feel like the highly-acclaimed SIG SAUER P320 centerfire pistol.

Weight and trigger pull are virtually identical offering recreational shooters, professionals and competitive shooters another outstanding training tool to easily hone their shooting skills at greatly reduced costs.

“The SIG SAUER P320 has been extremely well received by law enforcement, recreational shooters and competitive shooters alike, and customers have been asking for a pellet version of this pistol since we introduced our very first airguns,” said Joseph Huston, vice president and general manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “The industry has truly embraced our ASP air rifles and air pistols as excellent training tools when the cost of ammunition, lack of range time or other factors prevent people from training with their centerfire guns as much as they would like or feel they should. We are committed to producing these high-quality, CO2-powered alternatives that make it easy for people to train in their back yards.”

The P320 ASP air pistol features a metal slide with realistic blowback action and polymer frame in addition to a smooth slide safety. This air pistol is double-action only, has a front blade sight, fixed rear sight and an accessory rail which allows easy mounting of a laser or tactical flashlight.

The 12 gram CO2 cartridge is inserted and removed through a compartment in the side of the grip. Velocity is up to 450 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on pellet weight, temperature and altitude.

The SIG Sauer P320 Advanced Sport Pellet pistol will be available for purchase later this year and come in two colors: Black and Coyote Tan. The MSRP is $119.99

SIG Sauer MCX Mandatory Carriage Assembly Replacement Program

SIG SAUER is conducting a mandatory replacement of the carriage assembly in SIG MCX rifles. SIG has found through extensive factory testing that in extremely rare instances, not reported in the field and extremely difficult to replicate, a condition may exist causing an unintended discharge. Failure to follow the loading procedures and basic rules of safe firearms handling outlined in the user’s manual has the potential to cause serious bodily harm or death. Although this has only been witnessed in 300 blackout, SIG has decided to upgrade all MCX models since the MCX is a modular platform and we want to ensure the quality and reliability of all products we manufacture.

Stop use of firearm immediately, and visit the SIG SAUER website listed below as soon as possible to register your firearm, initiate the process and view a video explaining how to change out your carriage assembly. SIG will send you a prepaid box to return your complete carriage assembly to the factory. A new assembly, designed with the firing pin locking mechanism, will be shipped out to you within 5-7 working days of the receipt of your parts at no cost to you. Please note total in transit times will vary based on geographic locations. SIG will also send you a $50 gift voucher for any inconvenience this may have caused. This upgraded carriage assembly addresses this potential issue while enhancing the performance and longevity of your rifle. You may also contact SIG SAUER customer service at the number below with any questions if needed.

SIG SAUER is committed to addressing this issue in an expedited manner, and appreciates your support.

  1. I’d be happy to get my hands on one of the products that Sig promised we could get LAST year – the ROMEO1 reflex sight, proudly touted on Sig’s website as the Guns and Ammo’s 2016 Optic of the Year! And STILL unavailable as of 2017. I needed a good sight for my S&W Victory and decided the ROMEO1 fit the bill. I pre-ordered it and patiently awaited its release in the fall, then waited … and waited … and waited. Called Sig and asked what the heck was going on and was told, well, WE’RE being told it will be sometime in November. November comes and goes and I give up and buy a different sight. Sig really has no idea when, or IF, this sight will ever be released, yet you get no clue of this fiasco when you read all about the super fantastic ROMEO1 on their website. What has happened to Sig?!?!? I own several Sig products and must say I’m pleased as punch with them but I’ve read that others not so much and that there are internal issues aplenty in this once-mighty company. Hope they pull it together, but a good first step would be for them to take hat in hand, admit the ROMEO1 ain’t happening, and pull all mention of it off their website instead of pretending like it’s the best invention since the wheel when in fact it doesn’t even exist!
