GAO Denies GLOCK Protest For US Army M17 Modular Handgun System Award To SIG SAUER

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Yesterday was the deadline for the Government Accoutability Office to issue a ruling on GLOCK’s protest of the US Army’s Modular Handgun System award to competitor SIG SAUER of February 24th. The GAO denied the protest, meaning the Army’s planned fielding of the M17/18 will move forward, starting with the 101st Air Assault Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, later this year.

Below is the GAO’s statement.

The following is a statement from Ralph O. White, Managing Associate General Counsel for Procurement Law at GAO, regarding today’s decision resolving the protest filed by Glock, Inc., of Smyrna, Georgia, B-414401, June 5, 2017.

On June 5, 2017, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) denied a protest filed by Glock, Inc., of Smyrna, Georgia, against the award of a contract by the Department of the Army to Sig Sauer, Inc., of Newington, New Hampshire. The solicitation, issued under request for proposals (RFP) No. W15QKN-15-R-0002, is for the procurement of a modular handgun system. The protester challenged the Army’s interpretation of the solicitation regarding the minimum number of contract awards required by the RFP. The protester also alleged that the Army improperly evaluated its proposal. The maximum contract value, including all options, is approximately $170 million.

GAO denied the challenge to the interpretation of the solicitation, finding that the RFP allowed the Army to make only one award, although up to three awards were permitted by the RFP’s terms. GAO also denied the challenge to the Army’s evaluation of Glock’s proposal on the basis that any errors did not prejudice Glock in the competition.

GAO’s decision expresses no view as to the merits of the protester’s proposal. Judgments about which offeror will most successfully meet the government’s needs are reserved for the procuring agencies, subject only to statutory and regulatory requirements, such as full and open competition, and fairness to potential offerors. GAO’s bid protest process is handled by GAO’s Office of General Counsel and examines whether procuring agencies have complied with procurement laws and regulations.

Today’s decision was issued under a protective order because the decision may contain proprietary and source selection sensitive information. GAO has directed counsel for the parties to promptly identify information that cannot be publicly released so that GAO can expeditiously prepare and release a public version of the decision. When the public version of the decision is available, it will be posted to our website, www.gao.gov.

A reader of SSD was kind enough to share these photos of the internals of the GLOCK 19M.

CANSEC 2017 – GLOCK 17M/19M Available for Agency Order in Canada Through Rampart International

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

The title says it all. Agencies and departments in Canada may place orders for the 17M and 19M through Rampart International.

I had the opportunity to shoot the Glock 17M during Rampart Internationals range day earlier this week. you can’t base a review on firing a single magazines worth of ammunition but I like the pistol. In addition to firing it myself I observed others as well. Here’s a photo of a 17M with a standard 17 model for comparison.

Most glaring is the ambi slide lock. Although they wouldn’t let me photograph the internals, once you get your hands on one you’ll notice some similarities to the 42/43. Additionally, this is a two pin gun and will only be offered in 9mm variants. However, I wouldn’t say it’s too much conjecture to anticipate these changes being rolled into a Gen 5 line in the future.

Cosmetically, you’ll note a new, slightly darker and tougher coating on the slide, rounded business end like on the compacts and they’ve gotten rid of the finger grooves on the grip.  Additionally, they’ve integrated a slightly flared magwell molded into the grip.

I’m looking forward to purchasing one of these, once they become available.

NRAAM 17 – Inforce APLc GLOCK 

Friday, April 28th, 2017

The APLc GLOCK from Inforce is now shipping. It offers 200 lumens and mounts flush with the muzzle of a G19. The paddle switches are easy to manipulate but a simple turn of the head offers lockout for storage or transportation. It is powered by a CR2 battery with a 90 minute run time.  At 1.87 ounces, you won’t even know it’s there.

Currently, the light is designed specifically for use with GLOCKs due to rail issues. Look for a 1913 compatible model soon.

Legal Manufacturing, LLC To Release NIB BATTLEWORN Mod 2 GLOCK 21 At 2027NRA Annual Meeting In Atlanta

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Atlanta, GA, April 27, 2017 – Legal Manufacturing, LLC, an industry leader in nickel boron plating is releasing their latest offering, the NIB BATTLEWORN® Mod 2 Glock® 21 at the 2017 NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits (NRAAM). The NIB BATTLEWORN® Mod 2 Glock® 21 is a factory Glock® modified to enhance the functionality, balance, and assist with weapon manipulation. Legal Manufacturing has added front serrations and weight reducing side and top slide cuts, removed finger grooves, reduced the pistol grip, undercut the trigger guard, stippled texture on the lower grip frame, installed an NIB BATTLEWORN® plated SSVi Tyr trigger which is designed to be the next evolution in an EDC/duty trigger and Glock® factory night sights. The factory Glock® 21 slide is plated in Legal Manufacturing’s patent pending NIB BATTLEWORN® nickel boron. The factory Glock® 21 barrel and optional SilencerCo threaded barrel and cap are plated in a matte variant of Legal Manufacturing, LLC’s proprietary NIB ONE® nickel boron. Legal Manufacturing’s nickel boron plated surfaces reduce the operating friction of the firearm due to the low static coefficient of friction without the need for lubrication. The NIB BATTLEWORN® MOD 2 Glock® 21 is a performance firearm that does not sacrifice Glock® factory reliability.

For 2017 NRAAM, the American Suppressor Association (ASA) has teamed with its sponsors to raise money for ASA by auctioning off five suppressed custom Legal Manufacturing NIB BATTLEWORN® Mod 2 Glock® 21 packages. All five packages are identical, with one notable exception: they each include a suppressor from a different manufacturer: Silencerco Omega45K, Gemtech Lunar 45, Sig Sauer SRD45, Yankee Hill Machine Sidewinder 45 and Rugged Suppressors Obsidian. All proceeds of the auction will go directly towards the ASA’s fight to pass pro-suppressor reform on both the State and Federal Levels.

Legal Manufacturing, LLC is a producer of NIB BATTLEWORN® plating, a low-observable, patent-pending nickel-boron plating treatment that offers superior scratch and wear characteristics while simultaneously reducing friction to aluminum, steel, and titanium firearm surfaces. NIB BATTLEWORN® creates a smooth and uniform plating barrier, increases the surface hardness of the plated part to over 70 Rockwell hardness, and produces a surface that is superior to competing plating systems.
