I awoke this morning to some great news. The UK MoD has announced that after a trial for a new service pistol consisting of 7 contenders they have chosen the Glock 17 Gen 4 to replace the Browning Hi-Power which has seen 45 years of service. The MoD has awarded a £9m contract with Viking Arms Ltd of Harrogate to provide more than 25,000 new Glock pistols and
Blackhawk! holsters Radar 1957 holsters from Italy. Interestingly, the British purchased a number of SIG pistols over the past few years as an urgent requirement for use in Afghanistan.
Congrats to both Glock and our friends in the British military.
