FBI Switch

Postby stash » Tue Jul 04, 2017 8:23 am

I read this morning (not really new news) that the FBI is going to the 9mm from the .40. The new firearm will be the Glock Gen5 G-17M and G-19M. And as usually happens numerous federal agencies will follow along as well as some locals. The thing that caught my interest a little bit is that there is some talk that the U. S. Army will go the same route.

I do not see the Army following suit considering this. http://www.military.com/daily-news/2017 ... istol.html

The Army probably won't, but could. I think that new Sig can be switched between 9mm, .357, and .40S&W by swapping out the barrel.

I don't understand why the FBI would select a modified Glock Instead of an already in production SIG.
It is good to see that Glock finally understands that not having a safety isn't for everyone, Now if they could only figure out the hammer DA/SA thing.

Apparently, the FBI is not good at remembering lessons previously learned.
