Well, it’s official. The U.S. Army has given Glock it’s MHS mix tape back.
While much of the attention has been focused on the XM17 and XM18 MHS pistols, there is one aspect that has not received much attention—the ammunition.
Not only has the U.S. Army announced which units will conduct the next phase of testing and first field issue for the XM 17 Modular Handgun System (MHS), but other services have indicated how many units of the new pistol they are interested in acquiring.
Despite Internet rumors that FN America had submitted the FN FiveseveN pistol for the Modular Handgun System (MHS) trial to be become the next U.S. service pistol, the gun actually put forward by FN was a 9 mm Luger.
FN America has announced its newest 9 mm striker-fired pistol, the FN 509—the pistol that was submitted as the manufacturer’s contender for the U.S. Army's Modular Handgun System (MHS) competition.
In support of the program, Winchester will supply Full Metal Jacket and Special Purpose ammunition.
