SIG Sauer have announced that a P320-M17 version of their ceremonial M17 pistol will be available. The Ceremonial M17s were introduced in October 2018 and have equipped the honor guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier since.

The visually striking ceremonial pistols have a high polish slide and frame. Perhaps one of the rarest variants of the M17 service pistol in use by the US military, the introduction of the P320-M17 Ceremonial will be welcome news to collectors.

Here’s what SIG have to say about the new P320-M17 Ceremonial:

SIG SAUER is honored to introduce the P320-M17 Ceremonial. Exquisitely crafted to help honor and celebrate a legacy of service. Inspired by the SIG SAUER ceremonial pistols created for the soldiers who guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

The P320-M17 Ceremonial is built around a high-polish AXG all metal grip module fitted with custom Hogue walnut grip panels. Featuring a high-polish optics-ready slide and SIGLITE front and rear day/night sights. Chambered in 9mm, the P320-M17 Ceremonial maintains the same reliability as its duty-grade cousins with a 4.7” carbon steel barrel, M1913 accessory rail, and 21+1 round capacity. The P320-M17 Ceremonial – an acknowledgement of dedication, sacrifice, and unwavering commitment to our country – a symbol of courage, resilience, and undeniable impact, marking the end of a commendable career of service and beginning of active duty alike.

Five years ago when SIG Sauer delivered the first Ceremonial M17s they published a mini-documentary on their YouTube channel: Silence, Respect, Dignity, and Perseverance: The Story of the M17 Tomb of the Unknown Pistols.

The P320-M17 Ceremonial pistols ship with:

  • Optic Ready High Polish DLC Slide, Compatible with ROMEO-X PRO, ROMEO2,
  • High Polish AXG Carry Grip Module
  • Custom Hogue Walnut AXG Grip Panels
  • Striker Fired with a Short Tactical Reset
  • (1) 17rd & (2) 21rd Steel Magazines

    Not down with using the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as marketing.

    HOLY COW BELLS! If ever were there a need for more cow bells… it would be FOR THIS IMMACULATE CREATION FROM STEEL BY MAN! I can’t believe they have been around since 2018 and I’m just now hearing of them!?!?! so yes, this pistol needs much more cowbell to bring attention to its Beauty and elegance through simplicity!! Black steel, some polishing & A nice set of Hogue walnut grips is all you need to create such an epitome of dichotomy!
