Yeah well thats a P320-M17. And yes it is 149, better than the 179 I paid a while ago and the 219 others want.

FYI, the Sig Sauer M17 is the military version of the P320. It is a full sized pistol.

Civilian version (can also be found in FDE, or as you call it coyote brown):

https://www.cabelas.ca/product/100292/s ... air-pistol

Which was adopted recently by the US military to replace the Beretta M2A1 as the standard sidearm.

The Sig Sauer P365 is a compact pistol.

https://www.cabelas.ca/product/141857/s ... gun-pistol

Regardless, I have the M17. It is a nice shooting pellet pistol. Good value at $150. I only use flat head (wadcutter) pellets in it and make sure I properly seat all the pellets in the belt, to ensure jam free operation. Nice blowback. Fairly accurate, once you get use to it. May need to adjust your point of aim to be on target, as sights are really not that adjustable. But there is a red dot sight specifically designed for this gun, if you want, or you can install a laser on the bottom rail.

All in all, I am happy with the M17, and would recommend you buy it, if you into this type of thing.

So i got my butt down to Bas Pro (Vaughn) today to pick up the M17. This is definitely worth the 150 sale price! i got there early like 11:30, I get there and they just finish having a power surge so the store was closed, no tills. I had to stick around that mall until just after 4pm today when they opened. I was pissed sorry have to say that lol.

It all worked out, I also bought spare clips pk and a can of Crosman 250 tin of Premium Wadcutters all they had in flatheads. i'm impressed out od 1 magazine there was only 2 misfires, gun is still new. I was impressed it never jammed once, I just pushed them in naturally. I also noticed if you squeeze to fast, the trigger doesn't catch I think a couple of times. Could be me though shooting to fast. I noticed these Sigs like this one and the X Five have fatter grips. My KWC 1911 Tac grips are perfect for my hands, you can't have it all:)

I'm liking it, kind of feels powerful and it's pellets:) I'll try crosman hollow points what I have left. I wanna also want to grease it , I have Park Tool Grease for my mountain bikes, can i use that? Anyone familiar with that stuff?

Cheers

I actually ordered an M17 from Cabela's for the $150 sale price.

Except when I picked it up at the local store I decided to handle the display version before taking mine home.

I'm glad I did because I wasn't impressed with the gun. I didn't like the slide/quality or material, and although the gun feels like a piece of beef in your hand, it was deceivingly light...too light for its size IMO. It didn't seem to have a slide lock/catch either (?)

I'm sure it shoots great, but I just guess my expectations were higher of Sig and the pistol.

Please advise us on how it works on the M17, once you get a chance to install it & try it out.

i highly doubt your going to find a pistol where the slide locks, when it shoots pellets. if you want one with slide lock, go for the ones that shoot BBS.

Some great buys today at Cabela's.

https://www.cabelas.ca/search?n=0&seeal ... y2=Airguns

For example:
- Remington 1875 for $139.99
- Full auto Thompson M1A1 for $329.99
- Sig P226 for $129.99.

Some are one day sales, some are week long. But maybe call your local store to hold one for you, if you are coming just for the sale item.

The Remington is a great larger sized, single action, old west, replica, shell loading, revolver. That shoots both BBs & pellets thru it's smooth bore barrel.

M1A1, is a great replica full auto BB shooter.

I'm still on the fence about the Sig P226.

More one day & week long sales @ your local Cabela's/Bass Pro's:

https://www.cabelas.ca/search?n=0&seeal ... y2=Airguns

For example:
Crosman AK1 for $229.99
Sig Sauer M17 or Beretta M9A3 (with full auto) for $169.99

Plus free shipping on orders of $150.

I think these are some of the lowest prices in Canada.
