    I couldn't find the pertinent info. Either way, it sounded more like an endurance test.

    Definitely more of an endurance test than it is a torture test.

    GLOCK SURVIVES PNP’s 20,000-ROUND ENDURANCE TEST

    The Technical Working Group of the PNP Bids and Awards Committee (BAC-TWG) has completed the 20,000-round endurance and stress test for the 9mm Glock 17 Generation 4 pistol offered by the second lowest bidder in the program to acquire 59,904 units of handguns for the policemen in the field.

    On Sunday, the BAC-TWG administered the final stage of the 20,000-round endurance test on the Glock sample submitted by Trust Trade Philippines for testing.

    No less than the Chief PNP, Director General Nicanor A Bartolome personally fired the last remaining rounds to complete the 20,000-round test held at the NCRPO Firing Range in Bicutan, Taguig City.

    The 20,000-round endurance test is among nine test parameters that the BAC-TWG administered on the samples submitted for testing, that also include technical inspection, dimensional test, accuracy test, maintainability, parts interchangeability, sand & mud test, and water & magazine drop test.

    Police Deputy Director General Emelito T Sarmiento, PNP Deputy Chief for Operations (TDCO) and concurrent Chairman of the PNP Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) said functional tests on the Glock 17 Generation 4 pistols submitted by Trust Trade began last Thursday, July 19 involving daily endurance firing of 5,000 rounds for four straight days until Sunday.

    Sarmiento said the Glock 17 Gen 4 9mm pistol succesfully passed 20,000-round endurance test with negligible number of recorded stoppage.

    The sample was submitted for laboratory test today (Monday) at the Metals Industry Research and Development Center of the Department for Science and Technology (MIRDC-DOST) for the magnaflux and metal composition test to determine micro cracks in the gun’s chamber and barrel.

    Sarmiento assured, “the BAC-TWG strictly observed all prescribed rules in the actual testing because we want to ensure that the PNP will get only the best equipment for our policemen” adding that all actions of the BAC are consistent with provisions of the revised Implementing Rules and Regulations of RA 9184 or the Government Procurement Reform Act, contained in the Handbook on Philippine Government Procurement.

    The BAC-Technical Working Group (TWG) has chosen at random two sample pistols from ten submitted samples. The 20,000- rounds endurance test on the chosen sample was administered by the BAC-TWG with observer-representatives from other proponents and pre-qualified bidders, DILG, NGO, media and other interested parties.

    The PNP program to procure 59,904 handguns out of its P1.19-billion appropriation is the largest procurement program of the PNP in recent years.

    “Henceforth, we want to set the precedent by making this particular procurement the standard of transparency and public accountability in all future procurement programs of the PNP,” Sarmiento said. (PNP-PIO)
