SIG at SHOT: P320 striker-fired pistol and updated 556xi carbine (VIDEO)

Rumors have swirled around two major new product families from SIG Sauer leading up to SHOT Show this year and we can now confirm that the company is launching a new series of duty pistols, the striker-fired SIG P320, the spiritual successor to the, er, under-successful double-action only SIG P250 and a completely overhauled SIG 556xi, an updated SIG 556 rifle that will replace its predecessor.

Both are multi-caliber platforms that can be converted to meet users’ needs. The P320 has a serialized stainless steel subframe that is the legal firearm. This subframe can be combined with slide assemblies, grip frames and magazines to change size or chamberings.

The 556xi has a serialized upper receiver that is also modular. It can be used with lowers that use either AR or AK magazines and fit with barrels of various lengths chambered for 5.56/.223, 300 BLK and 7.62x39mm.

SIG is packing their YouTube channel full of updates for 2014, including updated hi-res versions of some previous videos.
