Glocks, in particular the Glock G19 in 9 mm Luger, just keep grabbing headlines and contracts within the military and law enforcement communities.
The U.S. Marine Corps is set to adopt the compact variant of the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System as its official duty pistol.
The Army News Service is reporting the 101st Airborne, based in Fort Campbell, Ky., will receive the first shipments of the new Modular Handgun System in November. The pistol is based on the commercially available SIG Sauer P320 and is chambered in 9 mm.
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.
