SIG Sauer has announced the September Sweepstakes for the newly released M17 Commemorative pistol and M17 Collector’s Case. The sweepstakes will be active at sigsauer.com/promotions now through Friday, Sept. 21, 2018.
“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, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, commercial sales, SIG Sauer, Inc. “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 M-17 Commemorative.”
The M17 Commemorative is a 9 mm striker-fired pistol, and comes with two 21-round magazines and one 17-round magazine. The pistol features a coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slide with the same optic cut as specified by the MHS contract, coyote-tan colored controls just like the original pistols shipped to the 101st Airborne, and a manual safety. The M17 is equipped with a SIGLITE front night sight and removable night sight rear plate. It also comes with a coyote-tan carry-length grip module.
This M17 Commemorative pistol will ship in the same cardboard packaging as delivered to the U.S. Army. Upon registration of the pistol, the winner will receive an official certificate of authenticity and commemorative challenge coin, both with serial numbers matching the pistol.
The M17 Commemorative Sweepstakes also includes an exclusive M17 Collector’s Case made of solid cherry box with dark mahogany stain, a tempered glass top, a brushed nickel latch, and a keyhole back for optional wall-hanging. The case features a slate-grey flocked foam insert with an affixed brushed steel SIG Sauer M17 logo, and precision laser placement cuts for the M17 pistol, the official serialized M17 Commemorative Certificate of Authenticity, and the serialized M17 Commemorative Challenge Coin.
