SIG SAUER MPX-C and SIGM400-Predator to Release at SHOT

    I know, I know, Pre-Pre-Press Releases abound the days before SHOT. I’m sure we will get some more detailed coverage actually at SHOT, so just allow this to whet your appetite…

    MPX-C Carbine

    The modular 9mm SIG MPX Carbine will be available with a 16″ hammer-forged barrel and a full-length aluminum KeyMod handguard (with a top full-length picatinny rail). It is completely ambidextrous, possessing a dual-sided selector switch, magazine release, charging handle and bolt release. The stock is a three position collapsible with integrated QD points.

    “For those who want the full feature set of the SIG MPX, but don’t want a short-barrel rifle or live in a state with restricted access, the SIG MPX Carbine is a great choice,” said John Brasseur, Director of Product Management for SIG SAUER, Inc. “Later, if the operator decides to SBR the Carbine, it’s a simple change with a conversion kit.”

    The SIG MPX Carbine is completely modular, and handguards and barrel lengths can be quickly changed over in the field. The barrel comes with the SIG three-prong flash hider.




    SIG is introducing a redesigned SIGM400 Predator hunting rifle to its long gun catalog that is based off the direct-impingement SIGM400® action. It will be offered in 5.56mm and 300BLK.

    “Hunting with the modern sporting rifle had gone from fad to an accepted norm,” said John Brasseur, Director of Product Development for SIG SAUER, Inc. “With the SIGM400 Predator, hunters have an exceptional hunting rifle right out of the box, with no upgrades or additions needed.”

    The SIGM400 Predator has a two-stage match trigger, and the hammer forged stainless steel barrel comes in 18″ length in 5.56mm and 16″ length in 300BLK. Both come threaded for the addition of muzzle devices or silencers.

    Additionally it will boast a free-floating handguard with M-Lok and a top picatinny rail, a 6 position telescoping stock, and the upper and lower are both hard coat anodized. It will ship with a 5 round detachable box magazine (but will accept any STANAG AR-pattern magazine.

Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts.
