    So the gun shop I work at got one of these things in today and all any of us (employees) could do was roll our eyes and make fun of this thing. It seems absolutely pointless to me and everyone I talked to. It's ridiculous looking, awkward, bulky and you can't legally put a stock or forward pistol grip on it. I'm just confused as to why adding this big clunky ugly looking thing to your handgun is an advantage in any way? Seriously nobody at the shop could come up with practical reason for this thing's existence. One of the dumbest things about this contraption is that it makes it near impossible to clear any sort of malfunction of the firearm because you can't gain access to the slide! I'm actually pretty disappointed in Sig, especially considering the MSRP on this thing is a staggering $369!

    Had to double check the date...
    Nope, not April 1st.

    I want one, just to hang every imaginable scope, holosight, laser, flashlight and night vision, spare mag holder, and bipod I can on it, then charge people $1 each to hold it at gun shows.

    With all the pimp models Sig USA has been putting out the past few years, why should anyone be surprised with this abortion?

    I noticed it on the Sig website as well and was completely confused as to why it exists. The main point of adding a "carbine" attachment to a gun would be to have a buttstock allowing you to fire it shouldered for increased control, however since this thing doesn't include 16.1" barrel for your pistol, you can't legally do it. It also seems that any optics mounted on the top rail would immediately loose zero if the pistol were removed and reinserted. The single sided charging handle also seems like it would make the pistol slower to reload as well.

    Looks like all the Tacticool stuff folks hang on ARs these days...while most folks who do will never even learn to really "use" the stuff.

    But whatever...

    I would guess it would appeal to the same folks who bought the H&K SP-89

    They should make a 16 inch upper like the mechtech. Instead of this thing that just adds a big hunk of metal to a pistol.

    Well the SP-89 is a somewhat impractical civilized version of the the more practical MP5K. The Sig ACP turns a practical handgun into an impractical abomination. I can't honestly see how it could serve military or LE any better than an MP5, UMP or any carbine for that matter. As far as the civilian market is concerned it really has no practical purpose at all that I can think of.

    Just an extension of never-ending "making it better" IMHO. Bet they sell a bunch of them.

    They'll sell a bunch, but only to those who are cool enough to understand. That's not me.

    Looks like something that would fit in a Bladerunner remake or another Star Wars movie. Seems hard to believe that this isn't some joke.

    Yep, no real point to it. I'll save my money.

    Would be amazing in a movie. CGI a cyan muzzle blast and make it a pulse pistol or something to that effect.

    Looks like a tacticool update of the CZ vz. 61 skorpion.

    Or someone had a (bad) fantasy about making a Star Wars Stormtrooper pistol out of a Sig.

    Bleah... Hard to keep begin a Sig-fan when the keep pumping more and more silly stuff ... and pumping up prices...

    Except that looks more like a Jawa blaster than a Stormtrooper blaster to me...

    I would rather have a Mechtech CCU. It would be about the same price and a lot more accurate. I see a lot of mall ninjas buying this thing.
