Army to Glock: Give us $15M worth of ‘Perfection’

The Pentagon apparently went looking for some “Glock Perfection” and last week tapped the company with a contract worth up to $15 million. 

Smyrna, Georgia’s Glock, Inc, was awarded a $14,999,980 firm-fixed-price five-year contract “for various firearms, spare magazines, and spare parts.”  The contracting activity was the U.S. Army Contracting Command, Newark, New Jersey. 

The 59-page Solicitation Notice, published by Picatinny Arsenal in July, was specifically to “procure non-standard weapons/commercially available Glock weapon systems” including up to 1,500 G17 model handguns; 5,000 G19s; and 2,200 G26 pistols across several generations (Gen3, Gen4, and Gen5). Modular Optic System (MOS) (G19, Gen 3, 4, 5) and threaded barrel versions (Metric or Standard threads, G19 MOS, Gen 4, 5) were also covered.
