U.S. Army’s New Pistol of Choice

The Washington Post reports that “after more than two years of searching the Army has finally settled on the pistol that will replace the branch’s nearly 32-year-old sidearm.”

“The up-to $580 million contract for the ‘Modular Handgun System’ has been awarded to Sig Sauer, a German firearms company, according to a release from the Army. The Army’s aging 9mm M9 Beretta will be replaced by a variant of Sig’s P320 pistol.”

“Though the Army did not name the specific pistol in its announcement, a Sig representative at a firearms exposition in Las Vegas confirmed that it was the P320 to Military.com.”
