Swiss Army Selects GLOCK as New Service Pistol
GLOCK Ges.m.b.H., announced that the Swiss Army has chosen GLOCK as the new service pistol for the Swiss Army Special Forces. Several suppliers were originally invited to provide pistols and accessories. With this decision, initial orders in 2012 will go to supply the Swiss Special Forces units, provided the Swiss Parliament has approved the proposed budget. The GLOCK Pistol models ultimately selected were the GLOCK 17 Gen4 and GLOCK 26 Gen4 9x19 semi automatic pistols, as well as the Blue GLOCK Training pistol, the GLOCK 17T Gen4 and GLOCK 26T Gen4 which will have the ability to fire both FX and ATK Force on Force marking ammunition.
