NAT’L – MILITARY – Army generals are getting their very own variant of the service’s new handgun

After years in the works, the Army has finally deemed its new Modular Handgun System is officially ready for action — and that includes a few hundred just for general officers. The Army recently approved Sig Sauer’s M17 and M18 pistols for Full Material Release, declaring that the new sidearm “meets all operational performance requirements” to formally replace the Vietnam-era M9. And apparently, according to Guns.com, the service’s new arsenal includes some 800 personalized M18s just for general officers. Don’t get too excited: the new GO handgun “is essentially an M18 with a distinguished serial number,” Sig Sauer media relations manager Samantha Piatt told Guns.com. “Additionally, each GO handgun is supplied with a large and small grip module in addition to the medium grip module it is configured with upon delivery.” The compact M18 joins a long line of Army-issued general officer pistols stretching back to 1944, when the service started issuing the Colt .380 to generals. According to the Army, the Colt was subsequently replaced by the M1911 variant adopted as the M15 in the 1972, which was subsequently replaced by the M9 in 1984. Under Title 10, Section 2574 of the U.S. Code, general officers can purchase their assigned pistol when they retire, a privilege embraced by Gens. Omar N. Bradley, George S. Patton and Dwight D. Eisenhower after leaving active duty.  [full article]
