SIG Sauer Offers Chance for M17 Commemorative

posted on September 10, 2018

SIG Sauer, winner of the latest contract to provide the U.S. Army’s sidearm—the M17, has announced that it is running a sweepstakes to give civilians a chance to own a piece of history. The prize will be a boxed M17, complete with a certificate of authenticity and a commemorative challenge coin.

“The M17 was selected by the U.S. Army for its uniquely innovative modularity, uncompromising performance, and unmatched capability. The M17 redefined the definition of the combat handgun forever making it a true collector’s item,” said Tom Taylor, SIG’s chief marketing officer and executive vice president of commercial sales. “With the limited manufacturing run, we wanted to offer this extended sweepstakes to expand the opportunity for military, firearms, and SIG Sauer enthusiasts to own the M17 Commemorative.”

The M17 is a striker-fired 9 mm semi-automatic handgun. It comes with two 21-round magazines and one 17-round magazine. The Commemorative is a coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slide with the same optic cut that is specified in the military contract. It also boasts coyote-tan controls, so the winner will get a gun that is just like the original pistols shipped to the 101st Airborne. SIG made only 5,000 of the Commemoratives.

The gun will ship with an M17 Collector’s Case. It is a solid cherry box with a dark mahogany stain, a tempered glass top, a brushed nickel latch, and a keyhole back so it can easily be displayed on a wall. The case features a slate-grey flocked foam with laser placement cuts for the M17 pistol, the official serialized M17 Commemorative Certificate of Authenticity, and the serialized M17 Commemorative Challenge Coin.

The sweepstakes is running now through Sept. 21. No purchase is necessary to enter the sweepstakes. Complete terms are available at
