Our tenth and FINAL ENTRY into the Flex Your Guns contest is this SIG M-400 based AR15 pistol from Suarez International instructor Greg Nichols.

Here are the details:

  • Sig M-400 FDE Pistol with 11″ barrel
  • FDE SIG SB15 pistol brace
  • Voltor CASV-EL
  • Insight Light in FDE
  • FDE Troy Micro rear sight
  • Magpull RSA for front sling mount
  • Troy quick release rear sling mount — the lower receiver has a built in mount for it.

Greg has this to say:

Intentionally made this a little front heavy to reduce muzzle hop for CQB burst shooting. I prefer the modular smooth forend that I can add to remove the rail pieces as needed

The thing I like the most about Greg’s pistol is that he runs it.

I also like that it’s set up for shorter distance engagements. While we should all strive to have “combat accuracy” at longer ranges, I personally train for engagements at 150 yards or less. The likelihood of needing to use a firearm for self-defense is slim, the chances of needed one at distances farther than 100 yards is even more slim.

Anyway, enough with the jibber jabber, here’s some footage of Greg running his M-400 pistol and teaching at a recent CQB class:

Please keep Greg Nichols’s M-400 in mind when we select a winner.

Next up: select a winner!

Judging starts tomorrow on May 29, 2014 and closes at 11:59PM CDT June 4, 2014.

    “The likelihood of needing to use a firearm for self-defense is slim, the chances of needed one at distances farther than 100 yards is even more slim” THAT pretty much says it all right there. If we thought we’d be shooting at 300m, we wouldn’t carry a SBR. Obviously it doesn’t mean that a 2″ revolver is right all the time either.

    We choose SBRs because they answer most of the questions most of the time. A SBR reaches beyond traditional pistol ranges to cover likely engagement scenarios.
