that's what was reported. They were bought for testing for the new joint service pistol but now that the whole project is scrapped I have no idea what they will do with them. here's a link talking about it. I have no clue if they bought them, tested them, or tossed them, it's only what was reported. http://www.strategypage.com/militaryforums/29-4090.aspxOriginally posted by urbanjunglist
Are you sure about that? I know we have the new Kimbers currently used in theatre, but I never saw any glocks yet. If thats the case who uses them?
Not yet they haven't it has to go thru SOCOM, they are just in the running.Originally posted by Marine8541
Defense review reported that the USMC bought 10,000 Glock 37s (.45GAP) for field use and testing last summer. I haven't heard anything since then though.
I know a while back some webmagazine said the exact same thing, but I had a friend at who worked in the Infantry Weapons section at SysCom and he said it wasn't happening. Not to mention were are 1) buy carbines to supplement and eventually replaces most pistols 2) bought off on the A1 variant of the M9 with a light rail and a high reliability, sand resistant magazine.Originally posted by GlockX35
The latest issue of SOF has an article saying the Marine Corps and other services are looking at a 5-inch G36 type pistol and another Glock with a manual safety. Kind of hard to believe but I guess anything is possible. Glad I got out before they started issuing those Beretta's. The 1911's we had were beat to death but always went bang when I needed them to. As a SSgt in Beirut thats all I had until I convinced the armorer to give an M16. Pistol came in handy in the old jeep though since you didn't have much room. I still remember going to locked and cocked as we entered certain parts of the city. That was strictly against the ROE.
