It's called the Modular Handgun System and after reading that article, I see nothing "modular" about it...

They should have stuck with the M1911 45 ACP. I carried one for a time as a secondary weapon in the Army. I qualified expert with it. Great firearm!!

the FCG can come out of it and it can be used with any caliber. The grips can be interchanged with any size slide and barrel and can be used across multiple calibers. pretty modular if you think about it.

want a full size 9mm pistol for range practice and then switch it over to a .357 sig with a full size barrel and slide with a compact frame? done.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

Yeah, I just finally saw an article with that information. Pretty cool.

Its funny to me that the FCG/ frame is just sort of like a little part that probably costs little to make. By the time you buy all the different barrels, grips, slides, etc... you probably ---- near just could have just purchased a whole other gun.

For a grunt pistol, I woulda stuck with a 1911. The 320 is a solid firearm though, just hope it can keep up with the abuse a line grunt will give it.

Sig was actually the gun recommended by the team that did the testing when the 1911 was replaced by the Beretta 92. Political considerations was the final determining factor.

All of these options are fine but how will a military supply system stock and issue all, or any, of them to troops? So each soldier / fire team / squad / platoon / yada yada gets to choose from the options available?
Options shmoptions. IMHO options should not be a criteria for choosing an individual weapon that will be used in combat. I can't even imagine how options as to caliber would appeal to any supply chain not to mention a detachment of Military Police.
This is not directed at you there Adam.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
