    NSW goes Glock

    Looks like the Glock 19 will be the new 9mm pistol of Naval Special Warfare.

    The SIG's are still in service but are to be phased out in favor of the Glock Model 19.

    I am not sure what generation, but based on those G19 already in service with SOF I'd say the Gen 3 is likely.

    I will follow up when I get more issued than holsters et al.

    Hell, I'll sell you the UPGRADED Generation 4 model - so new, even NSW doesn't have it!!

    I wonder if they'll go for the factory threaded barrels to boot?

    Awesome. I had found no information on this.

    This comes as no surprise. A Glock 19 is a solid choice for a defensive pistol.

    Thank you for the information, sir.

    I assume that a maritime version using the maritime cups in the striker assembly will be standard?
    Is there any difference in the finish used on the slide or internals?

    There have been rumblings about NSW going to the G19 for a few months now and in all reality it has been in service with JSOC for at least a decade. Many thought that the G19 as the new pistol- dubbed an "operators pistol" vs. "service pistol," was simply rumors. With the SIG Contract coming to an end and the immense popularity of the 19; not to mention lower price point of the Glock the timing makes sense.

    WTBS I don't have all the specs but I believe a stock G19 would meet most of the criteria right out of the box.

    More to follow when I actually have an issued 19 in hand.

    Dumb question, so don't answer if you don't feel like it, but what role does the HK45C serve, compared to what the Glock 19/P226 was suppose to do?
    Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
