"SIG Sauer announced this week that the U.S. Marine Corps is adopting the M18—the compact version
of the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS)—as its official duty pistol. Speculation the
branch would go with one of the two MHS versions was put to rest in the Navy’s 2019 budget
estimate [PDF]—published in February 2018—although there was no early indication it preferred the
3.7-barreled version over the 4.7-inch barreled M17 receiving widest distribution by the U.S.
Army."

Well, I've got the M11A1 (228), and the M17 (320) so another purchase is in order. On a related note, a department just went with the Sig 365 as their backup weapon
