LE MCX version question

3278 20
Just purchased a MCX as a patrol rifle that was restricted to credentialed personnel. Doing more research, I’m having trouble understanding what version I actually purchased. Sig SKU is WRMCX-16B-TAP-P, upc is: 798681578894. What does the W in the SKU represent, as it appears that’s the only difference in what I see from no LE restricted models.

Still waiting on my October order for an 11" MCX through their Individual Officer Program. My model # is WPMCX-11B-TAP.

Don't know if that helps but I was told that the LE models go through additional testing for QC.

Welcome! Congrats on the MCX.

I believe that the LE models are black nitron and have mil-spec triggers. The mil-spec triggers are not as good as the Match-Lite Duo, but folks like me replace the factory trigger with my own preference. The lower LE price is good deal IMO.

A good tool to have for the MCXs is an inch pound torque wrench. The barrel bolts need to be torqued at 60 inch pounds.

Who told you that? This is BS. When you say something like this at least list the source. Don’t be CNN

Glock LE models, known as Blue Label Glocks, sell for less as they are discounted and come with 3 magazines instead of 2 but that's the only difference.

Other manufacturers are probably the same.

There are definitely differences and I am sure you all figured that out. Here's a chart for the thread anyway. I'm so glad I got one, this is one of my grail guns!
How much were they in 2020 fellas? Bidenomics has them at $2149.00 right now at Proven. This is one awesome rifle that I have been dying to get my hands on for a few years and finally it's on the way. After the 10-day hold I will have my own!

I like the LE version because of the Chrome lined barrels. I have a Tan Virtus and Black. Both LE
