U.S. Coast Guard Fields Glock 19 Gen5 MOS Pistols
Operating under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, enforcing maritime law with jurisdiction in domestic and international waters, the Coast Guard owns a proud legacy. The first responders protect America’s economic, national and border security. Now it will do so fielding the Glock 19 MOS.
The Coast Guard selected the Glock 19 Gen5 MOS as its standard service pistol. Glock filled the USCG contract within four months of initial purchase request. The solicitation and approval process included testing by the Institute of Justice Laboratories, field evaluations and direct input from 16,000 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) law enforcement personnel.
“GLOCK is honored to support the requirements of the USCG and provide a weapon solution that delivers on unmatched performance and value in any environment,” said GLOCK, Inc. VP Josh Dorsey. “The comprehensive testing and evaluation process conducted by CBP demonstrated the GLOCK pistols lasting reliability that instills confidence in those who use it to go into harm’s way.”
The CBP award incorporates Glock’s newest 5th Generation technology pistols. For more information, visit us.glock.com.
