Training with an air pistol — one that is an exact duplicate of the “real” gun carried — has the advantage of being less expensive and less dangerous. Of course we treat all guns the same but using an air pistol means you’ll potentially train even more. For those who carry an M17 (AKA the Sig Sauer P320), SIG AIR just released its M17 ASP Air Pistol. Here’s the full release from SIG:

NEWINGTON, N.H., (November 5, 2018) – SIG AIR adds to its world-class Advanced Sport Pellet (ASP) line of airguns with the introduction of the new M17 CO2-powered air pistol. This semi-automatic .177 caliber pellet pistol is a replica of the U.S. Army issued P320 M17 and is field strippable like its centerfire counterpart. It has the same look and feel as the M17 featuring a polymer frame and metal slide with realistic blow-back action. The proprietary drop magazine houses a 20-round Rapid Pellet Magazine (RPM) and 12g CO2 cartridge which has a patentedcam lever loading port for quick and easy replacement of the CO2 cartridge.

“SIG AIR engineers have incorporated the finest features from all of our air pistols to date into the new M17 ASP Air Pistol,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of SIG AIR. “It handles exceptionally well, is fun and accurate to shoot, and a very effective training tool, especially with the dropmagazine for quick reloading. Current M17 owners will also appreciate that it field strips like the U.S. Army M17 pistol.”

The M17 ASP pistol weighs 2.15 lbs. The sights are fixed with a white dot front sight and the accessory rail allows easy mounting of a laser or tactical flashlight. Velocity is up to 430 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on pellet weight, temperature and altitude. Available in Coyote Tan.
MSRP: $139.99
