I thought they were going to post a FAQ page about the GEN 1 and GEN 2 this week. I got 6 mags last week, return them, keep and sell with GEN1 MPX, or roll the dice and keep? If I do sell the GEN1, I will not be buying the GEN2, there new GEN2 Brochure only list the MPX as 9mm.
i ordered some of these, mine are all gen1 with the shorter feed lips.
geez..nothing like making things more murky than they already are
They did put a picture of the Gen 1 on the cover page.
and everything inside is gen2
Love how the brochure says "The next generation of submachine gun."
Maybe it should say "The second generation of the next generation of submachine gun, but is it the final generation of the next generation? Your guess is as good as ours!"
I broke down and watched the video on there product page. The MPX had the key mod hand guard, so it is probably the Gen 2. But they still showed all of the Gen 1 info on the page. See how much longer it takes them to dissolve the Gen 1 from there product page.
Wait and see if they have the next Gen at Shot Show "Gen 3 for 2016"
Two dumb guy questions:
How much difference does a 4" vs 8" barrel make for...
...accuracy inside 25 yards?
...muzzle velocity with marginally subsonic ammo?
Assume shoulder fired with one of the stocks and red dot sight.
Good question. I've been waiting for news from Sig on a 4.5" barrel for the Gen 1 before I have someone cutdown my current 8" barrel. Link below shows ballistics by the inch. Not sure about accuracy though. Probably not too much difference out to 25 yards I would think.
i shoot american eagle 147 out of my 8" barrel MPX with an osprey45 and it is a tad louder than my glock 17 or sig 226 because of the longer burn time for the powder pushing the bullet closer to the sound barrier.
FM 147... 4" I'm getting same groups. Using octane 9. Blowback a touch high but less with 4". Sounds about the same. Didn't notice an accuracy difference until I tried bipod shooting at 100 yards with can on 8 and 4.. 4 drops another 5-6".
Very good video comparison of evo to MPX

In that video MAC is having some major gas blowback issues. In the video below from RTN he says he has none. Wonder if suppressor and/or ammo are making that much of a difference?
is posted this on page 65 of this thread.
I think the blow back problem is a result of using a suppressor designed for hand gun use. I use my Octanes 9 and 45 on my handguns, 9mm AR, and MPX. Even on the 9mm AR I get gas coming back. Maybe next year, I will get a suppressor designed for subguns. Heard B&T suppressor's might be made in the US and they make one for the MP5.
Well, what's interesting is that in the video I posted RTN is using a Ti-Rant 9 and is getting no gas blowback at all. The Ti-Rant 9 (I believe) is not even rated for 300 blackout, which both the 9 and 45 Octane are. As soon as I pick up my Octane 45 (should be soon) I will try it out with and without the 9mm endcap. Still waiting on my telescoping stock from Sig (June 10th).
|Get on the fifty!|
June 5th for me - not a peep from sig on it yet
SSHHHHH! Don't tell everyone. Now ALL the cool kids will want scratches in their anodizing!
