Army Selects Sig Sauer to replace Beretta M9

Today the Army selected Sig Sauer to replace the aging Beretta M9 series, in the Modular Handgun System (MHS) trials.  Smith & Wesson was the first company thrown out of the trials. FN, Glock and Sig Sauer where left. Sig submitted the P320 striker fired pistols for the XM17 MHS trials and it seems to have won over the competition.
