NEWINGTON, N.H., (April 24, 2019) – The new M17 Advanced Sport Pellet (ASP) and MPX ASP air rifle from the SIG AIR division of SIG SAUER will be available for NRA members to shoot at the Pyramid Air Indoor Range during the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana this weekend.
The M17 ASP semi-automatic .177 caliber pellet pistol is a replica of the U.S. Army issued P320-M17 and is field strippable like the P320-M17 9mm centerfire pistol. Powered by CO2,this high-performance air pistol has same look and feel as the P320-M17 and features a metal slide and realistic blow-back action. The proprietary drop magazine houses a 20-round Rapid Pellet Magazine (RPM) in addition to the 12g CO2 cartridge and cam lever loading port for quick and easy replacement of the CO2 cartridge.
The popular MPX ASP .177 caliber semi-automatic air rifle features a 30-round Rapid Pellet Magazine and is a replica of the world-renowned SIG SAUER MPX centerfire rifle.
“Airguns and airsoft products are becoming more popular for training across all sectors worldwide – from recreational shooters to law enforcement and military,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of SIG AIR. “These products allow for a wide array of training scenarios in locations other than live fire ranges and at greatly reduced cost. We encourage NRA members to stop by the Pyramyd Air range for some fun target practice and welcome all in the SIG SAUER booth to see the entire line of SIG AIR products.”
The full SIG AIR product line including the new P365 BB Pistol, MCX Virtus PCP Air Rife, and ProForce Airsoft line is on display at the SIG SAUER Booth (#3912) at the NRA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 26 – 28, 2019.
