Were they the keymod ones? Those are the only factory grips i remember seeing which would also make sense now that the gen 2's with keymod are shipping.
I’ve only switched the end caps enough to know it’s a pain in the rear… the Oct9 is designed to where the end cap goes right after the last baffle, but both the Oct45 and 45K are an odd length where they have a half baffle that sits inside the end cap. Taking this out is not easy, especially my 45K, I have to use a razor blade to get underneath it and that gets a bit sketchy. Went through all of this trouble and then ended up using my .45 in a bowling pin match and wanted to use the silencer as a muzzle break and switched it back without getting a chance to try it on the 9.
From the reviews of the 9mm end cap on Silencer Shop, the general consensus is it doesn’t provide much of a difference. According to the Silencer Shop test there is a very minor differences compared to the regular end cap and you trade lower muzzle report for higher at ear volume. Really ends up balancing out in the end. For myself, I decided it’s not worth the trouble of switching end caps every time I want to change guns and unless I get really bored probably won’t be trying it again, plus I don’t want to accidently use it on my .45 with the 9 end cap. At least for me, I have 9 and .45’s so I just plan on leaving it that way.
Sorry, I know that doesn’t really answer your question.
I asked the same question, and John said they were NOT the keymod ones, but rather foregrips for the Gen 1 handguards.
Of course, until we have a part number and/or one in my hot little hands, we can't be certain.
I would buy one! I've had an ambi charging handle on order for about a month, still waiting on that one.
Anyone know who has the best deal on a Gen 2 and has it in stock? Thanks
Tombstone tactical has one on their website or Osage has one on gunbroker. Im counting my pennies til i can get one of them.
If you want to wait, I waited about a week. I picked up a Gen II PSB today from my LGS (Low Price Guns in Bellevue WA), for $1,499. It is his standard price for the MPX PSB when he has them in stock.
I've been quoted $1225 for the pistol from a few different sources. That's what I ended up paying through my local FFL. Finding who can actually get them is the trick.
Several LGS have gen1s in stock. None of them have known there was a gen2 though...
This is the very problem I have.
Ask them to check their distributor for an MPX-P-9-KM. That is the model number for the gen 2. The issue my FFL had was that a lot of distributors had pre-sold or set aside the KM models for their high volume retailers. He said his "cheapest" distributor wouldnt sell him one, but he was able to get it through another distributor.
They may very well be out of stock at this point, although I did just get an email from Alphacat armory saying that they could now get the KM pistols.
Lgs has gen 1 for $1195, or CZ Scorpion for $799 hard to pick so would a gen 1 be a good idea this late in the game with gen 2 already out or just buy the CZ.

Whatever you decide, sort out the mag situation first. Source all the mags you need before you commit and find out mags are impossible to find or crazy expensive.

Scorpion hands down.
When in doubt, pinky out.
If you want to get one right now, Scorpion. Or wait till next year and see what happens. Looks like B&T is getting back in the sub gun market.
Except I think I've learned my lesson from being the first buyer of a "Gen 1" gun....although I would like to add the Zenith Z-5RS to my collection....
B&T has been making sub-guns for years, those are not new production Gen 1's. I guess there going to start shipping pistol only versions and maybe make there suppressor a in the US. Was told there would be more info. from B&T at Shot Show. Still waiting for SIG for there FAQ page, so I can decide on what I want to do with the Gen 1 MPX.
For all of you voting Scorpion to avoid the Gen 1 crap, check out CZ USA Facebook page, it's getting an overall for 2016 also!
Scorpion Carbine, Scorpion Carbine suppressed. Wonder if they are going to be produced in the US?
Sadly the aesthetics of the scorpion just does not do it for me..
Still on the fence about keeping my Gen1 MPX also or whether I should sell it and get a Gen2, but as long as Sig keeps making mags for the Gen1 and will offer replacement barrels I guess I might be good.
