    Posting a non-drive-by thread took a hair too long, but still worth the effort.

    Which SIG won??? I hope it's the poly 9. The steely 9s are too heavy for today's [email protected]+0rZ.

    P320 series. The contract is also for ammo, parts, training and accessories, which means SIG won the handgun but is part of a larger conglomerate supplying the entire logistical package. It actually makes whatever gun it is less important than who answers for every thing shipped to field it.
