 I suggest Glock be the new military sidearm. It is reliable and deadly in field use. Plus it costs less than Berettas signs or h&ks.


 


What do you think mates?

I'm a Glock fan too. I didn't a Glock was less expensive than a Beretta sign.

i agree with jimroc that sig sauer should get the nod.  the P226 to  be more specific. I understand it was in the original running against baretta back in the day, US Navy Seals have adopted the P226 as their sidearm of choice.

A Glock is what I carried 95% of my career. (I carried a P226 also) But I sorta preferred a duty gun I didn't care about. Got scratched up, beat up, used, abused but always on-duty in clean, ready condition. Available in multi-calibers and sizes... Simple to replace... Worked right from the box... Lightweight considering the capacity... Ugly but very reliable with quality jacketed ammo. Not the best duty trigger but consistent from 1st to last unlike some DA autos. (personal preference) Holsters and accessories are easily available. Can be completely detail stripped with anything 5/32nd like an ink pen. They make the most economic & ergonomic sense.


In my time I have had misfortune of 3 case failures in a handgun. One was a Browning HP that blew the grips off, destroyed the magazine and injured my hand. Two others were in Glock 17s which stung a bit but the guns were ready to fire once the weapon was cleared and I didn't bleed. Yes, I've seen all the pics of Glocks in pieces after a KaBoom... Also seen pics of other polymer guns AND 1911s cracked open from case failures but in my case the Glocks stayed intact.


I might like them better if they had a frame safety but again... personal.

 Yes Sig is more comfortable and accurate. But for the price is go for H&k or Walther. But none are excellent for military use. One breaks and you'll pay out you arise mates. So Like I said go Glock , if you break it since its used in every country it can be fixed.

I'm old school but I think the US should have it's own. The 45 is what I like. Improve the mag capacity, improve the guts if necessary and go with a lighter weight more durable receiver. Colt no longer exists as an entity, but America needs to develope it's own and not rely on outside products.

I must admit Glock is probably what would fit that bill now. I'm just not a fan of Glock, but that is what I have to carry and so I carry it. It's okay, but I don't think its the greatest thing since slice bread. No offense folks just stating my opinion and we know what those are like...

Bloke. I carried the P226 for some time however, always went back to Glock. Personally I would never carry anything less than 40 caliber. I always think of the Colt 1911 for military use. The military fixed something that wasn't broke.

Navy SEALs carry the P226, with slight mods. I carried a P226 and a P220. Both excellent firearms.


I carry a Glock now. No issues.


Military? Do you know why the AK47 is so popular? Because it's loose as a goose. None of that micro-clearance stuff with an AK. So, the military application is excellent. Too bad we don't issue them. I've shot one on full auto. A pleasure to drive.


Got sidetracked.


Either / or. I think the Sig will just plane out last a Glock though.

 True 1911 is a excellent pistol and American made. Even with its 8 shot capacity its better than needing 17 shots to take a man down. But NATO an U.N. standards are 9 mom. So you need more rounds. I favor the FNH FiveseveN pistol in 5.7 mm a revolutionary rifle round used also in P90s. Its meant to pierce body armor up to 50 yards easy as a knife thew butter mates and carries 20 rounds or customed up to 30. And the US also has the less known FMK 9mm all American made Bill of Rights on its side and support our troops on the barrel. It hold about 17 round 9mm and looks just like a Glock.

This is a bit of a misnomer. It was introduced as a cop killer round that would go through vests. Well duh !!!


The 5.7 x 28 round is a small rifle round. A pistol was built around it. Soooo, naturally most rifle rounds will penetrate ballistic material. There's nothing magical about the The FN Five-seveN. It's a handheld rifle round.

 No mate the 5.7 mom was meant not as a cop killer but for special forces and I put it out as a suggestion because it can go through armor that round kicks ass.

I currently carry the Sig 220 on duty. I have also been issued a Glock in the past.


I like my 220 but would rather carry a 1911 if I was given the choice.


Between the two, I voted Glock for military issue.
