NSW to switch to Glock

Post by Matt E. » Mon Jan 11, 2016 5:10 pm

According to the post, NSW (SEALs) will be replacing the MK 25 (226) with the Glock 19 over the next two years.

With all of the fawning love being directed towards 9MM Glocks lately... Am I the only 9MM Glock hater who is having second thoughts?

The FDE Glock 19 is just, kind of, calling to me,
Shiney side out... Shiney side out...

I talked to an Navy insider and he was telling me that the transition is because the Glock is more modular and will fit more roles. The idea is to have a weapon that can fill certain needs with specific criteria. The final goal is to allow troops to sustain longer missions without need to swap gear. Now, instead of carrying a SIG as a sidearm and Tupperware as a food storage device, the Glock will do both. Zinggggg.... shots fired shots fired.

Interesting a lot of police are moving away from the Glock around here

So are military purchases. Regardless it is hard to find a reliable cheaper service pistol than a Glock.

And a $7000 Glock. It's a porcelain gun made in Germany. It doesn't show up on your airport X-ray machines here and it costs more than what you make in a month

I gotta say the M&P not requiring trigger pull for takedown is a nice feature.

As you can see the male is significantly larger than the female. Coitus can last upwards of 15 seconds.

What's even nicer is that you can also do a trigger pull to complete the takedown on the M&P.

The non trigger pull method has you moving the seer inside the magwell and that is kinda a pain as you either have to have a long thin tool to do it or use the adjustable grip's retaining rod to move it [which you'd have to remove, use, and then put back. and its not easy to remove]. You can't really do it without a tool in other-words. So I ended up just doing the trigger pull method in lieu of using a tool as the SOP.

In the case of both methods; you really have to lock the slide back to flip the slide release anyhow, at which point you can do an additional check to see that the chamber is clear. And with the non trigger pull method you have to have the slide locked back to move the seer.

So I guess what I'm saying is either way it'd be really hard to do a take down on the M&P with a round in the chamber.

"Flawlessly". Every time I see this word in a thread, I brace myself for bullshit. Around half the time I end up feeling vindicated.

http://diehard.wikia.com/wiki/Glock_7

"The Glock 7 is a fictional 9mm pistol supposedly made entirely out of porcelain that apparently appears in Die Hard 2. Rather than constructing custom guns to portray the fictional pistol, first generation Glock 17s were used as a stand-in. Since then the scene has gained notoriety among fans of the film, who often use the scene as an inside joke because of the string of Glock inaccuracies Bruce Willis said about it. Despite this, this was one of Glock's first film appearances and the blatant fallacies about Glocks contributed to a rise in popularity and sales for the company."

Thanks to this stupid thread...
A. I am the owner of a beautiful FDE Gen 3 Glock 19.
B. I have been reminded why I hated Glocks (I can't hit as well as I can with other pistols).
C. I have learned that I like Glocks with modified triggers.

I am considering keeping it stock to help my non-Glock shooting, figuring if I can overcome this trigger: I should be able to shoot anything. Alternatively I am considering a Zev trigger kit, like a friend has. With her Glock I am hitting where I aim... But everyone says a carry-gun shouldn't have a modified trigger (This isn't a carry gun but to me they're all potential carry guns).

To keep this related to the original topic... Do you think NSW modifies their Glock triggers?

If it makes you feel better thanks to this thread I now own (well on order but paid in full) a G40...... I know its not a 9mm, but hey.... I figured I had to share the Glock love everyone and their mother apparently has. :lol:
