The 81 trials were a joke and full of corruption. Sig should have won the contract, but money was more important then lives once again. I was referring to the US Joint Combat Program that ended in 2006 . They were looking for a .45 to replace the 9mm. They stayed with the 9 mm and renewed Barrettas contract. The HK45 even had the threaded barrel, it looked like a real combat pistol.
