Searching MPX or MCX is a waste of time.

Lets be honest, searching the forum is a useful capability. However the search is crippled by search function limits.

I tried to find an old post that talked about bags for the MPX. I was going to add info to it. I attempted to search for: MPX bag.
The search returned with:
Quote:
The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search : Mpx, bag
It would appear that the search function might have the 3 letter limit set. I have seen this same problem on many other forums. When you try to search small three letter initials they kick back the same error.

Considering how many 3 letter weapon names are out there you might want to adjust the search function to allow for searching these items.

FWIW I was searching for this post. Look at the title.. no good reason that the search function could not find this post... just silly... https://sigtalk.com/sig-sauer-rifles...-mpx-bags.html

An alternative is to use the site built-in Google search. Typing MPX into the search box returns a whole lot of threads about MPX.

That function is the last option in the Search drop down.

Thanks, I honestly never paid attention to that as it’s greyed out. Learned something new. Also I saw the first search function and never considered an alternative. Lastly when you open an advanced search the google option isn’t there. No excuse on my part...

Guess that’s this forums work around.
