New Snake in the Sig MPX Line
SIG updated the MPX Copperhead with some new features designed for the consumer market. The original MPX Copperhead was created for a military contract and had some people wondering why it was missing a few things. Well, SIG has corrected that with the new Copperhead.
There are two significant changes to the MPX. First, the second generation of the Copperhead has a black anodized finish instead of a Cerakote FDE finish. Second, and this is the best change to the MPX, the barrel is now threaded. This replaces the built-in flash hider of the original. Now people can add a silencer to their Copperhead.
The second generation of SIG MPX Copperhead still retains the other features of the original Copperhead. Ambidextrous controls allow for left- or right-handed shooters with its dual-sided selector switch, magazine release, charging handle, and bolt release. The short-stroke gas piston allows the SIG MPX to run all weights and brands of 9mm ammunition with no adjustments to the gas valve. It also has a monolithic upper receiver, with an integrated stock knuckle lower, and a 3.5” barrel.
The new SIG MPX Copperhead is only available from Bill Hicks, so if you want one, you’ll have to have your local dealer order from them.
