FYI this requirement is still in the sources sought stage, the details of their requirements may change once the actual solicitation is issued.

Hopefully one of the vendors will convince them to switch to M4 GBBRs, it is much more suitable for what they are planning to do.

So with no M4 magazines listed, I suppose they're planning on hand loading each shot?

TBH they should try get the WE Glock series instead of the ATP, or even the KSC or Upgraded TM glocks would be nice!!

Wait, why Sig P226s? I thought M9FS or 1911/variants were the norm for the army?

I actually have no idea now...

Glock 17 and P226 remind me of when you dual wield pistols in Left 4 Dead....o.o

Bad text analysis is why my English mark is just 70. And the class average is 85.....

My bad, my bad...
