New administration, new service pistol.

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 11:57 PM
     As I am sure a few of you know that the us army (big green) has chosen a new service pistol. The announcement was made at shot show in vegas last week. 
     We here at old troopers are sort of spectical. Remember the "sure thing" of the XM8 rifle? What ever happened with that. So we bide our time. Who knows, I would love to see a crop of surplus minorly beaten about M9 (Baretta mod92fs) being released onto the CMP or the open surplus market.  With inflation, and what the 1911's went for in the last service pistol sell off went for, thinking they will be in the $250-$400 range. Depending on.... well..... how the lowest common denominator left them in.
     Think about that.  Think of the dumbest person you know. Put them under stress, constantly. Give them a chunk of metal they have to drag everywhere attached to themselves. In a sandy, hot environment. Near their unwashed body..  

   So, that will be the $250 range pistols....

   Get the idea. 

   That is also why the CMP 1911's are going to be going for as much as they are.. they are pistols retained to build match pistols. So, not crap...

     The replacement. The sig Sauer (American sigs: New hamshire) p320. Not a bad gun. Was sold to the army at an offer price of $300 a unit. Do not quote me on this, but that should be pistol, manual and 3 mags.  Not a bad price. About what big green was paying per Baretta. However all you "Sig-O-Philes" this is a very "un sig" pattern pistol. Most of us know sig for being an "old school" maker. Steel frames and hammer fired. Big, heavy, well built old school guns. The 320, well... not so much. This is a poly framed, striker fired pistol. This was also supposed to be the "modular system" so, interchangeable back straps, frames, slides, barrels.  I really do not see that working out. Again, lowest common denominator. Do not give pvt. Snuffy a choice and extra parts for his sidearm. The more he (or she) tinkers, the more often it is to be broken!  So, let's see ow this all plays out shall we? 

    In other news, this changing of the guard may also facilitate the release of the infamous "Korean M1 stash". These poor rifles have been languishing in storage since they were suddenly prohibited from importation in 2013. These were supposed to go to the open market. So if century arms gets them: in the $400 plus range. If say Cabellas/bass pro gets them expect $900plus. God only knows what the carbines will go for. If they will be imported at all. Rumors have it that there may be some 1911's coming in as well.  

 Who knows, maybe some of the really asinine rulings of the last 10 years will start to change... can dream can I not? 


Until next time, 

Old troopers actual, 



Out.
