GLOCK 19 CONFIRMED FOR SOCOM'S SIDE ARM OF CHOICE
SIG FAGS ON SUICIDE WATCH
People have been saying this for a year, but nobody actually has a source.
Until something official is announced, this is all just internet rumors.
>The major asset of the Glock 19 is simplicity. It has few parts
This meme really needs to die.
It has around the same number of parts as a 1911.
Glock cheats the parts count by labeling multiple pieces together.
>a credible source
I'll let you have this one op. For a glimmering moment, you seemed to have an actual reason to justify owning a glock.
I'll be tending my P226 and its true perfection (doesn't have plastic fucking sights LOL)
Seems logical, though between the Beretta, Glock and Sig they all seemed to be similar performers with only a question of how sweet the package was for whoever guides these procurement.
>I mean, no one really takes their opinion on handguns all that seriously.
It's really sof but retards like op actually think that our military hasn't been using glocks for the longest of times.
I can see that you've never actually disassembled / assembled a 1911 before.
Because you made a really obvious mistake that someone familiar with the gun wouldn't have.
Idiot scratches happen when reassembling the gun, not disassembling it.
And its reassembly that's actually significantly slower compared to a Glock.
Not like that has much to do with anything, but whatever.
>amerifats btfo that military continues to buy weapon designs from European countries
you'd think 'murica having the largest private ownership of weapons in the world would help spur great designs, but nope all they want is muh 1911 muh ARcuckteen. the dod would have phased out the m16/m4 a decade ago if they would stop accepting bribes, just adopt the scar already goddamn.
S A D
>>amerifats btfo that military continues to buy weapon designs from European countries
But Sig was also European
>you'd think 'murica having the largest private ownership of weapons in the world would help spur great designs
Nah, too much government regulation fucking over small businesses.
You know dude, you have proven yourself to know very little about the disassembly process of a 1911. It takes about a minute to disassemble, in comparison to a Glock. I own both. Maybe you just aren't aware of the different guide rod types on a 1911, or don't have a very tight bushing. Do you have a paperclip handy? These are things which are mandatory to perform the basic takedown of a 1911 that any actual owner should know.
Why don't you know this basic stuff?
>because idiot marks could still theoretically happen with disassembely
You're pushing the slide stop the wrong way for that to happen.
Maybe someone who left idiot scratches on their gun shouldn't be the loudest voice commenting on disassembling handguns?
>You know dude, you have proven yourself to know very little about the disassembly process of a 1911. It takes about a minute to disassemble, in comparison to a Glock.
Not as fast as a Glock, but it doesn't take anywhere near a minute to disassemble.
>or don't have a very tight bushing. Do you have a paperclip handy? These are things which are mandatory to perform the basic takedown of a 1911 that any actual owner should know.
First of all, most do not have very tight bushings.
Second of all, if you do have a tight bushing, unless it is a super tight custom built gun, you can just take the slide off first, then take the bushing off without tools.
Third, a paperclip has nothing to do with normal bushing removal.
That's for full length guide rods.
You tried to make yourself look like some kind of expert, but just ended up embarrassing yourself.
My 1911 is not only more expensive, but also more reliable than yours. lol I can tell that you haven't owned a 1911 for any more than a year, tops. You sound cute though

So now that I've responded to all of your statements with facts and reasoning,
you're just going to shitpost loudly until I get bored and leave, so you can have the last word, since you consider any argument where you speak last as an argument won?
Guess I'll leave then.
I think I've said more than enough to give everyone lurking this thread a good idea of what's really going on.
literally the prince of handguns
My 1911 has a ton of scratches all over it. Including the idiot scratch I put on it the day I got it on my 10th birthday.
Most of the marks are from carrying except for the large one on the dust cover which is from a SERPA and shooting.
Stainless hides 90% of them though until you hit it with a light and see how trashed it really is.
I have a battered up 1911 too but I also have a NIB Glock. I can't wait to get it all beaten up. Those old beaten meusoc 1911s look sexy and I am VERY excited to see how an equally beaten up Glock 19 looks after a few years.
>not owning a mk19
do you even devgru?
1 pistol for everything 9mm. NSW previously issued the mk25 and the p239, with the mk25 for overt stuff and the p239 for concealment. This time they can just use one pistol for both.
I'm theorizing here, but the slightly smaller frame on the 19 might lend itself to IWB carry. I know that this isn't something which SEALs do, but it might be important for SOCOM in general.
Honestly it would make perfect sense for the Army to use the glock 19, and I'm not even a glock fan, it's a light weight "compact" pistol, yet has the capacity of a full size 9mm service weapon.
I suppose for being an American Patriot, I guess I'd be more happy if the army adopted something American, even if it's just a glock clone like the S&W M&P.
As much as I like 1911's I'm glad this will put to rest the idea of bringing back the 1911 because some old marines want it back.
Hey man, I like 1911A1'S too, but you have to admit it takes longer to break down and has the potential to have vital piece fly off and get lost if you lose your grip on the bushing and also, indeed takes more fine motor skills to put back together. Which takes a full minute.
a glock, love it or hate it breaks down and reassembles in less than six seconds.
>modern combat application
i'm sure it's probably an excellent subsonic supressed platform thought and i'd still suck a couple dicks to own even a used one with the laser and supressor
They use it overtly and covertly.
So when doing spy shit, they can conceal it easy.
when in the field, in full armor and kit they have a light weight compact back up pistol.
Let's face it, bless the Germans and American Aristocrats pushing classicism, but a pistol should never be a primary weapon, they are side arms that you have as back up or have in civilian settings, like daggers compared to swords.
As such while swell to have, 5 to 6 inch barrels are not needed so you can score head shots in no man's land or open fields, today, pistols with 4 inch barrels are used in close quarters like indoors or urban streets.
My 229 is heavy as fuck, likes to be run wet and is a great shooting gun but in no way would I choose it as something to crawl around in the sand for several days with. If get a 320 for that but what the US military should have done was get the M&P. It's as good or better than a Glock and it's American. Instead they got the most generic fib the could that is honestly, if you're looking at numbers not actually usability, is likely the best. Glocks are thin, light, cheap and very very reliable. So what it the trigger isn't great and the grip isn't perfect, it's the military they don't care.
Think of it this way, remember how Russians dropped the tok and replaced it with the mak?
Well now America has dropped the full sized pistol for a compact pistol to be able to be issued to all soldiers due to it's light weight and compactness so as not to be extra dead weight for riflemen yet be able to be handed out to drivers, gunners, officers support personnel...etc.
