Civilian / Commercial Sig MPX-C Carbine

January 14th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

The MPX is probably one of Sig Sauer’s most exciting new models for 2013 and the civilian model is definitely going to be in high demand!

The civilian model will be designated the MPX-C (Carbine) and will have a 6.5″ barrel with 9.5″ permanently attached muzzle break. Sig Sauer’s site is designating this as a NFA item but with the permanently attached muzzle break, it should not be regulated as an NFA item. We will obtain clarification on that tomorrow at the opening day of SHOT Show.

The MPX-C will be offered in 9mm and it will be convertible to .40 S&W and .357 Sig. The MPX-C will handle and feel very much like the SBR version since the majority of the weight will be in the receiver / barrel. The muzzle break will be extremely lightweight.

We will try to get an estimate on availability and pricing tomorrow at SHOT Show.

    Their material and various postings (like on FB) have been confusing. A few questions in case you know and would be so kind to share.

    The MPX-C version also seem to indicate a tax stamp is required. Is that true? Is this because of the guard extending beyond the barrel or something quirky like that?

    The MPX SBR semi-only version is still only LE/MIL? It would seem both the SBR and Pistol versions in semi-only could be Civilian legal. The SBR version through the NFA process. Yet Sig’s site and, aided by confusing and conflicting reports elsewhere, seem to indicate in any situation only the MPX-C will be available to civilians and that still might require a NFA tax stamp. Any clarity you can provide from SHOT would be great. Thanks much, -Mags

    It has been a bit confusing because even Sig’s site says that NAFA rules apply. I think the confusion lies in the ability of the carbine to accept the suppressor kit (it appears that the kit is essentially the outer sleeve of the suppressor which holds the serial number and is designated the suppressor).

    Also, there will be a civilian SBR and civilian. I posted an update with the part numbers, descriptions, and MSRP pricing.

    Thanks much – looking forward to the 357 Sig versions too. -Mags

    This will be great if it does accept the suppressor. Especially here in Michigan, where we can have cans, but not SBRs. Hanging a can off the front of a 16″bbl is fine for shooting from a bench, but unwieldy for any type of action shooting. The toughest part will be deciding between this, and Daniel Defense’s intregally suppressed .300blk AR. One stamp for the can and I’ll basically be able to have all the benefits of a quiet SBR, in a state where that normally wouldn’t be possible, unless I went for a transferable machine gun. (No bbl limit on those)

    What a sweet little package! Can’t wait to get my hands on one!

  6. March 9th, 2013 at 17:26 | #6

    I appreciate Sig’s efforts to bring rifles like these to the United States!
    Would it be possible to offer a faux suppressor for the civilian carbine?
    Also, is there an update on availability at all please?

  7. March 11th, 2013 at 14:33 | #7

    No ETA yet. The earliest we think we will see them is Summer and there will be very limited shipments / availability.

    What is the paperwork to own a k model as a civilian and wouldn’t it be classified as a pistol

    @MAGS
    I work in Fed level LE and been a 40+yr shooter/collector. I dislike shows so lets just say my collection is sizable. But I own over 10 SBR’s not including uppers, 11 suppressors and 5 select fire pre ban guns. Sorry but you are wrong the MPX civil version would need no Tax stamp etc. NFA rules for SBR’s require rifles to have a barrel length over 16 inches OR an overall length of 26ins so this gun is fine. I’m am hoping there will be a semi auto SBR version tho. BTW my younger brother works for Sig US and NO eta is known yet. ;)

    @Zach
    If the K model was semi auto only no paper work would be needed, as yes it would be a pistol. But other than the C all the others are select fire. But hoping they do have the option for some semi versions of the other models. I just got the Tavor IDF and its overall length is about the same as the C model. But the Sig would make a great trainer or plinker as ammo for it would be so much cheaper as I do my own reloads as well.

    @Highvoltage

    Nah 16in with a can is fine. Unless you buy some cheap YHM or some other budget cans out there which are heavy as I own a couple. Also don’t forget a lot of guys in the sandbox are running cans on 14-16in M4’s, 20in M16A2’2. All my can are Surefire’s for my rifles and AAC’s for my Handguns and you can’t feel the weight but the length is noticeable its why I only use em on SBR’s. Hence why I have 5 Surefire Socom SB 5.56 and 7.62 cans otw.

    Their made for barrels shorter that 10.5ins. I know 16 cans seems like overkill but I use em for my HD (we own 2 homes) and vehicle defense SBR’s as shooting a gun off in your home or car can cause permanent hearing damage, great for the gunclub or range as well. We have private lanes at our club so no ear pro is great. Sorry you live in a restricted state I feel for you guys, some have the dumbest laws. As I said in another post I work in LE. Btw also mentioned my brother works for Sig and not possible unless you get a threaded 16in barrel to go thru that fuax thing they use to get around the NFA rules.

    @SigSauerGuns

    Sorry but according to my brother (Sig employee) and I was at SHOT as well even the C version is not guaranteed to come out. They may or may not and NO mention of a SBR version was made and anything you hear at SHOT is 50 50 at most those reps are merely sales people dont forget that, look at the ACR and SCAR almost 3 years now and still NO cal or barrel kits. Same goes for the Sig all models are still up in the air in regards to civilian legal MPX models.

  12. April 22nd, 2013 at 06:42 | #12

    What does your brother do at Sig? I just checked my orders on Sig’s site and they did input the order for the civilian model: MPX-C-9-T….. Granted they are currently showing deliver 4/16/14 but everything I hear indicates it is going into full production.

    They’ve been pretty consistent down in our region that the C version is coming as early as Thanksgiving. They have been less optimistic the Pistol version will make it out the door – which is the version I want to SBR eventually. *shrug*

    @GLEN – No disagreement there, I was asking back them because Sig’s site kept changing the details on the C model at their site. And what they were saying conflicted the SHOT reports. (In a lot of ways).

    Cheers, -Mags

    Unfortunate about the ‘limited availability.’ It seems when a gun manufacturer has what they preceive as a hot seller they ‘limit’ the guns to keep prices high or to keep from having them sitting around the gun shops not selling the amounts they hoped.
    The civilian model is more expensive than we’d hoped for. I can wait several years until the price comes down or buy used.

    I want to know if this comes in pink?? I could get it dipped in pink Real Tree I suppose… THIS is a sexy gun… I will add it to my wishlist…

  16. September 24th, 2013 at 07:03 | #16

    It is not going to come in pink.

    Anyone else notice SIG took the Carbine version among others off their site? I wonder if we’ll see these even in 2014 in any civilian configuration. :-/ -Mags

    @Glen
    Do you know by any chance if WA state will allow the C version with a can to be used on ranges, HD, etc?
    I think that the MPX would be a good choice for anything close quarters (home to home, anything under 50yards) like the HK MP5 or MP7 is used by many military or anti-terror units.

  19. November 12th, 2013 at 08:40 | #19

    I looked and Sig canceled our orders for that model. I think it is scrapped – perhaps because of the design of the barrel / baffles….

    @SigSauerGuns

    Did they keep your MPX-P orders in 9mm open? So those are still coming? -Mags
