SIG SAUER M18 Sets New Standard for U.S. Army's MHS Reliability Testing..

The recent MHS Material Reliability Test consisted of firing three M18 pistols to an unprecedented 12,000 rounds each, and in an extraordinary display of reliability, the M18 performed with zero stoppages

That's odd. In the link you mailed me, the Dan Wesson .45 Auto 1911 came up under the Sig, article, but not in the link above. Here is the one I received in the mail, with this article.

The SIG 320 system is a darn good pistol.

I have 2, a Subcompact and a Fullsize with updated slide lock and grip module. Great guns.

Here's the FS when it was more or less new;



Tucked under there somewhere... LOL.

Looks cold - maybe it's the bluish tinge.

I purchased an M17 and converted it to an SBR using the B&T UWS grip module. Itís done in a battleworn Green Cerakote. Need to pick up a Leupold Deltapoint for it.

Agree..have the X frame version..really nice shooting gun..have 2 frames for it.. up to now, ZERO failures...

Saw they have introduced a smaller compact version for 2019..

But,. WOW, 12,000 rounds, ZERO failures..

Also been shooing the 365 a bit as that is one of my main EDC pistols... incredibly accurate and 12 rounds in a compact..AND comes with good night sites..

Glock is gonna have to get back to the drawing board a bit.. but, they had a heck of a run while it lasted..

12000 no stoppages that is good. I like the look of the grip better than the Glocks. If old Gaston Glock used the same grip angle as the 1911 and Hi-Power it would have made the Glock damn near perfect in my book.

Ripp the Glock still is a hell of a gun. Have seen a model 19 with reportedly around the 3 Million rounds through it and only the springs replaced-several times. First one the RAAF brought into Aust to trial. It was still working and shooting well. This was back in the early 1990's.
