I couldn't do it. I tried to get past the introduction but this guy likes to hear himself talk way too much.

With the shit he is spewing how can anyone take him seriously?


I've found the Military Arms Channel guy to be a much better reviewer, at least in my mind. Less of the mall ninja crap as stated above. Anyhow, he seemed to think very favorably of the MCX as well. He is not however so complimentary of the MPX as posted in the video earlier in this thread.

I thought the MC guys only issue with the MPX was the blow back, which we've had several people say its non- existent or minimal, appears blow back is a function of the type/design of suppressor, I don't recall a lot of negative comments on either the CZ or the Sig.

He also mentions the use of the AR style charging handle, vs. a side charging handle. Though admittedly this is personal preference, for a small pistol caliber carbine such as this I would prefer that as well. I guess I should say that while he wasn't negative towards the MPX, the Scorpion was clearly his favorite, even before getting to the end of the video.

So after some research today I've been offered to purchase and MPX first-generation pistol in the hard case with three magazines for $1000 plus sales tax.

The gun only comes with one magazine but there's a coupon in it for two extra magazines from Sig.

How did I do?

I'd like to see the coupon. I've never heard of sig including such a coupon. I've seen the coupon for the discounted Essentials Pack but no free mags.

Paid $1100 for mine with one mag and a coupon to get 3 mags for $139 including pouch. Ordered them today, and the Kate Moss Folding stock....

Picking it up tomorrow so I'll post a pic of the coupon.

I want to go ahead and order the Kate Moss stock. Can you guys tell me where you are finding them? I looked at the Sig Store online and it isn't listed.

Here is how I see it - if people are still paying $600-$800 for just the telescoping stock on Ebay and GunBroker, why not just buy the Gen 2 MPX Carbine with stock. Since I already have a Gen 1 MPX-P, I decided to order my MPX Carbine yesterday so now I will have the stock legally on the carbine for if/when I decide to Form 1 my MPX-P as an SBR, and I will also have a new Gen 2 lower/upper with a 16" barrel for an additional $800 or so, that is upgradeable (I hope) to 357 or 40 cal., and TWO guns that are a riot to shoot! I know the cash out of pocket may not add up to a good deal, but if I wait for Sig to make things right for us Gen 1 owners, I could be broke or dead before that happens!

Here's a 9mm pistol/SBR platform that seems to have no problems finding reasonably priced magazines:

Anyone else carrying their MPX in something neat?


Steve,

Elite Survival Systems makes great quality bags at a fair price (even better with Optics Planet coupon) and offers numerous sizes and shapes.

I use the SMG (Sub Machine Gun) case for the range - only problem is that mag compartments are not long enough for MPX 30-rd:


...and the COC (Covert Operations Case) for availability with optic mounted and mag inserted:

Called Sig today to get an update on my telescoping stock (June 10th) and was told there is no update but that they intend to ship all backorders by the end of the year. I guess that means they expect a huge shipment soon?

I am about done with Sig as a Company. I have sold off my 229, 226, 220 stainless, 220 elite and Mk25. That leaves me with a 522, 220 Scorpion, 232 and an unfired MPX Gen 1. I ordered a stock early June and each month I call and get the 3 to 5 week story. I really don't think Sig has been listening to their customers for quite some time now. I am going to wait until the end of the year and if no stock arrives, the rest are gone. Life is too short to deal with this type of customer service. IMO there are too many good brands out there these days to deal with the drama!

Does this make sense to anyone?

"The 9mm Gen 1 lower is not compatible with the Gen 2 upper in 9mm. The rep said the GEN 2 upper in .357 Sig and .40 cal. would fit on the gen 1 lower. "
And isn't it a happy accident that this time, your post reached the board because you just happened to leave out the website address that got your post caught in the moderation queue? How lucky was that, huh?

Troll us, and I will remove you from this forum.


Sorry if my post seemed like something other than what it was, I honestly was trying to get clarification on the statement i pasted above, I am NOT trolling.

I still haven't bought a MPX yet, waiting for all these issues to play out. That said, I want to buy more ammo before the government does anything stupid.

So, when using a can and subsonic ammo, has the MPX shown any preference for round nose versus flat nose 147 gr rounds?

I ran into similar issues being an early adopter of the P250, and now P320 platforms. Like them the MPX has been sold not only on it's platform but it's modularity, and Sig has been slow to deliver the "modularity parts".

I think it took over a year with my P250 to find different kits, frame sizes etc. The P320 has much of the same problems, I've been looking for a Carry frame for quite a while, no joy.

It just seems that the company is over promising and under delivering with the back side of the sales promo's, makes it tough on early adopters, but as early adopters we should expect this, because it's pretty much the norm with any company that introduces a new product.

Hard to know how well it's going to be received and how much demand is going to be there for support products like stocks, magazines, and conversions. Whats a company to do, stock up a million magazines and find out nobody is going to buy the gun, just to be left over with a massive expense, loss and write off.

Chicken and egg, cart before horse, I think we'd rather have a strong balance sheet company that is there to offer support than one that just spends money like crazy without justification.

Perhaps the issue is that the product development team is knocking it out of the park with excellent ideas, engineering is putting it together well, marketing is knocking it out by getting in front of the product, we all are standing at the door slobbering to get our paws on the thing, and the back end has to play catch up to the sales created.

Really good problem to have, and a bad one.

Sometimes a hiccup like the mod 1 vs mod 2 mpx happens, there's not any real substitute for the product testing that occurs by end users. Shit happens, you move on, Sigs offer to sell a complete upper to any mod 1 people for the price of an exchange kit is a fair deal, because you'd have to buy the exchange kit anyway.

Caveat emptor, if you are an early adopter, expect to be part beta tester...

c'est la vie...
