Winchester has been named the ammunition supplier for the U.S. Army Modular Handgun System (MHS) program, and will supply full metal jacket and special purpose ammunition in support of the program.

“This is a significant opportunity for Winchester to continue its steadfast support of the U.S. military, just as we have for decades,” said Brett Flaugher, President of Winchester Ammunition. “We are honored to work with SIG Sauer as part of the MHS contract.”

On Jan. 19, 2017, SIG Sauer was named the next supplier of pistols for the United States Army, replacing the M9 pistol, which had been in service members’ holsters since the mid-1980s.

Winchester, a current provider of ammunition to the U.S. government, collaborated with SIG Sauer in supplying ammunition for the rigorous MHS testing that began in August 2015.

"Partnering with Winchester to provide the U.S. Military with the Modular Handgun System is a point of pride for each and every employee of SIG Sauer," said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG Sauer, Inc. "Winchester has a long history of supporting our service members, and we are honored to collaborate with them on this project."
