When SIG Sauer introduced the popular modular SIG MPX submachine gun in 2014, it hinted that a carbine model was in development. We’ve just gotten word that the long-awaited SIG MPX 9 mm semi-automatic carbine is being introduced at the 2016 SHOT Show—where you can bet American Rifleman editors will be getting a much closer look during the SIG Sauer range day, with video to prove it. 

“For those who want the full feature set of the SIG MPX, but don’t want a short-barrel rifle or live in a state with restricted access, the SIG MPX Carbine is a great choice,” said John Brasseur, Director of Product Management for SIG Sauer, Inc. “Later, if the operator decides to SBR the carbine, it’s a simple change with a conversion kit.”

The carbine maintains all of the ergonomics of the SBR and pistol variants, but now with a 16" hammer-forged barrel, along with a full-length aluminum KeyMod handguard which provides ample room for mounting lights, lasers and grips. Completely ambidextrous, the carbine is great for left- or right-handed operators with its dual-sided selector switch, magazine release, charging handle and bolt release. The three-position collapsing stock features integrated QD sling cups for fast and easy sling attachments.

The carbine operates from a fully-closed bolt, and the locking rotating bolt system offers enhanced reliability and safety in use. A short-stroke gas piston with auto-regulating gas valve allows the SIG MPX Carbine to run all weights and brands of 9 mm ammunition, from low-power training loads to +P duty ammo. No adjustments are needed to maintain rock-solid reliability.

Familiar AR-pattern controls and ergonomics reduce the training curve and are instinctive for anyone experienced with the AR system. A full-length picatinny rail allows for solid, consistent mounting of optics and targeting lasers. SIG Sauer folding iron sights come standard.

The SIG MPX Carbine is completely modular, and handguards and barrel lengths can be quickly changed over in the field. The barrel comes with the SIG three-prong flash hider.

SIGM400 Predator
For predator and varmint hunters who prefer to hunt with a semi-automatic rifle, SIG Sauer has also announced that it has redesigned the SIGM400 Predator and added it to its long-gun catalog. The new Predator is based on the direct-impingement SIGM400 action, with enhancements optimized for hunters. 

“Hunting with the modern sporting rifle had gone from fad to an accepted norm,” said John Brasseur, Director of Product Development for SIG Sauer, Inc. “With the SIGM400 Predator, hunters have an exceptional hunting rifle right out of the box, with no upgrades or additions needed.”

The 5.56 mm cal. rifle features a two-stage match trigger, a hammer-forged stainless-steel barrel (18” in 5.56 mm and 16” in .300 BLK), and top picatinny rail. Barrels are threaded for muzzle devices or sound suppressors. It also features a hard-coat anodized upper and lower receiver, six-position MILSTD telescoping stock, and five-round detachable magazine.
