Since the service adopted the handgun in 2017, Sig Sauer Inc. has delivered 59,000 M17 and M18 MHSs and plans to supply an additional 350,000 of the new 9mm pistols over the next five to seven years. The weapons will be used by all of the services, according to a recent Sig Sauer news release.
Winchester Ammunition, which was selected to make the ammo for MHS, has so far delivered 44,000 rounds for the new pistol.
“We are enthused by this announcement and honored to have all the branches of the U.S. military participating in the MHS program,” Ron Cohen, president and CEO of Sig Sauer, said in the release.
