French Army adopted the G17 Gen5 as their new standard handgun

GLOCK Ges.m.b.H is proud to announce their recent success, as a result of a contract awarded by the French Armament General Directorate (Direction générale de l’armement - DGA) to re-equip the entire French Army with its new G17 Gen5 and multiple accessories, as their standard handgun.

The G17 Gen5 featuring a coyote frame with a black slide and front serrations, luminescent U-shaped sights and extended slide lock replace decades old PA MAS G1 S and PA MAC50 pistols.

The contract over the next three years includes over 75.000 pistols, holsters, magazine pouches, suppressors, several types of ammunition and protective cases. The offered pistols underwent stringent testing by the French STAT (Section Technique de l’Armée de Terre), among others a minimum expected lifetime test of 26.350 rounds, to make sure the selected pistols and holsters fit their high standard military requirements due to the high operational employment of the French forces.

The first G17 Gen5 pistols and accessories are to be distributed to the French troops within the first months of 2020.
