Earlier today announced a contract award for the FBI solicitation for new 9mm service and training weapons. In the solicitation the FBI required (1) compact framed pistol, (1) full size pistol, (1) Man-Marker (Simunition) pistol, and (1) Inert training pistol. While many thought Sig Sauer had this one all but in the bag with their popular and highly modular P320, the award went to Glock.

While the FBI is the agency that submitted the original solicitation, it probably won't be the only agency that adopts the new pistol. Other government entities that may purchase pistols and parts under this contract include:

  • United States Department of State, Bureau of Diplomatic Security
  • United States Marshals Service
  • Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms
  • United States Postal Service
  • United States Treasury Department
  • Drug Enforcement Agency
  • United States Capitol Police
  • United States Park Police
  • United States Department of Energy
  • Office of Inspector General (all Federal agencies)
  • United States Department of Defense

As to exactly what model(s) were awarded, we can tell you this: It isn't something currently commercially available. One of the bigger clues about this was the requirement “Finger grooves on the frame are not permitted“, which counts out a standard Generation 4 Glock. We will have further details for you tomorrow regarding other changes.
