There have been rumors that the U.S. military will be soon adopting a new service handgun—the Modular Handgun System (MHS). Anyone with any familiarity with U.S. military procurement knows that nothing happens quickly. This is just a beginning of a very long process. While more likely than an invasion of Canada, it is not happening this week.
I have become interested in U.S. military shotguns, especially the bayonet-equipped “trench guns.” Can you tell me which were the rarest?
SIG Sauer has delivered the 100,000th M17 and M18 for the Modular Handgun System program to the U.S. military, ahead of schedule, and surpassing the performance standards and requirements since the official contract award in January 2017.
Did you know FN is one the largest makers of firearms for the U.S. military? While Herstal, Belgium, is home to Fabrique Nationale, the company’s factory in Columbia, S.C., has supplied the U.S. military with M16A2/A4 rifles, M4/M4A1 carbines and belt-fed machine guns.
