Army Taps Sig Sauer for $580M Modular Handgun Contract

Sig Sauer has won a potential 10-year, $580.2 million contract to supply the U.S. Army with a new handgun system designed to replace the service branch’s M9 pistol.

The Army Contracting Command received nine proposals for the Modular Handgun System contract and expects work to conclude on Jan. 19, 2027, the Defense Department said Thursday.

The firm-fixed-price contract also covers ammunition and accessories.

The military branch will determine the work location and funds upon award of each task order, according to DoD.

Smith & Wesson partnered with General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) to propose the former’s M&P pistol for the Army’s XM-17 contract, but their proposal failed to advance to the next phase of competition in September, according to a report by Bob Owens for Bearing Arms.
