I'm sure many of you already knew this but thought I'd pass along. No surprise the Glock 19 was chosen. I wonder what their normal modifications will be.

I guess they could not afford the XDm bolt

Glock 19

Best compromise between size, weight, and capacity.

I guess someone forgot to tell those SEALs how ineffective the 9mm is... bolt

They carry a lot of gear and the pistol is secondary weapon.

"Your pistol is to fight your way back to the rifle you should have never walked away from in the first place."

Now I don't know if Col. Cooper said that or not, but it's a good quote. I think it applies directly to hunting just about anything larger than a rabbit.

That's an awesome quote. I gotta remember that one.

I've said it for years, loves me my glock 19. No matter what anyone says about caliber, size, firing mechanism, no one can convince me that glock 19 specifically doesn't belong on the list of all time great guns.

Cheap, light, effective, durable and reliable. I'm sure the top brass will try to block this decision.

It's an easy choice- cost vs. reliability and ease of use. Glock's not a sexy pistol, but it WORKS!!!

So an extra two ounces is really gonna matter? Why would you want less ammo, less grip, and less sight radius?

I dunno. I don't have a direct line to MARSOC.

Special Operators practice constantly. Their 9MM ammo is pretty hot (submachine gun fodder) so I believe a change of recoil spring or the addition of a second recoil spring will be utilized. Glock 19 is about the perfect size for most hands.

They've (DEVGRU) ran a suppressed Sig 9 & HK .45 for years. I wonder why the switch?

Probably the same reason for the 5.56mm vs. the 7.62mm. A pound of 9mm rounds is more rounds than a pound of .45 ACP.
