The British Ministry of Defence has signed a £9m contract to provide the British Armed Forces with more than 25,000 new Glock sidearms. The Glock 17 Gen 4 pistol is much lighter than the current Browning pistol, and more accurate. The Glock 17 also has an increased magazine capacity of 17 9mm rounds, compared to 13 rounds for the Browning.
