OFFICIAL: US Border Patrol Selects Glock Gen 5 Pistols for Duty Handgun



Quote
A source close to CBP told Tactical Life that “based on the description, they picked the MOS Gen5 Glock in 9mm (models G19, G26 and G47). Tactical Life has since confirmed those models. The duty handgun for all uniformed personnel will be the G19 and/or the G47.

Our source stated further that CBP “is 20,000 agents, so that should make it the second-largest agency in the U.S. to carry Glock (NYPD is No. 1).”

Currently, CBP agents carry HK P2000 handguns chambered in .40 S&W. Prior to the HK, agents fielded Beretta 96D Brigadier pistols in .40 S&W, according to our source.

Once again, can't the government find an American gun?

Do yourself a favor, find America One News Network (OANN) on your cable carrier. 208 on Uverse. News without the Network BS or bias

Thing about “winning” govt awards is it is NOT always the product that is 100% of the reason it os chosen. Many times cost and “perks” like warranty spare parts etc tossed in the deal sway those deciding as a better “deal” even for in inferior product at times.


Now if CBP would start USING their guns in places on the border we might not be getting flooded with 100k a month of these so called refugees. Their criminals not refugees.
As soon as they step ILLEGALLY across the border they are no longer refugees IMO.

Hell IMO none of them are refugees. What refugee arrives at a foreign border with an iPhone?

At first i wondered what the Glock 47 was because I wasn't familiar with the designation. Turns out that's because it's a recently released model purpose-built exclusively for the border patrol and won't be available for public purchase, at least for now.

According to what I've read, it's basically nothing more than a Glock 17 with a a slide pre-cut with the modular optic system dovetails already and the slide engraved with border patrol markings, though.

A lot of my coworkers love them too and do not like the idea we are losing our 40 for 9mm. Oh well I got 8 more years left with them.

I guess the contract has extras in it, like parts, tools,and maybe even holsters.  That is how many govt. procurement programs work.

Sure I'll shoot your Glock.  Just hang it with the rest of the targets.
