A lot of people who have an interest in firearms, myself included, have a fondness for military history. This will often lead to collectors wanting firearms that were used by the armed forces. This is problematic if you’re looking for a fully automatic M249 SAW, but it gets a bit easier with handguns. The M17 is the next pistol that falls into that category of military collectibles. To help collectors of such firearms, SIG Sauer has just released a limited run of X-Change kits. Drop-in your P320 FCU (Fire Control Unit) and you have yourself an M17 that’s nearly identical to the military version.

SIG SAUER is pleased to announce the limited release of the M17 X-Change Kit. With this kit, you can recreate a close replica of the U.S. Army’s official service pistol, the M17. Just drop in your P320 FCU and go. While supplies last.
SIG’s Limited Release M17 X-Change Kit
The M17 was adopted by the United States armed forces in 2017. Since then, the M17 and its civilian counterpart, the P320, have skyrocketed in popularity. If you already have a SIG Sauer P320, but you’d like to have an M17 as well, you now have that option. Released as a limited run, the new M17 X-Change Kits allow owners of a P320 FCU to drop their firearm into an M17 “chassis”. While it lacks manual safety, and there are some other small differences, this kit gets you very close. The slide assembly is a genuine M17 part and includes the barrel and recoil spring. It features the same military markings as you’d find on authentic M17s. The kits also maintain the Coyote Brown color and include three magazines.
- Caliber: 9mm
- Magazines included: One 17-round, two 21-round
- Manual safety: No
- MSRP: $499.99
