This has been going around the Gun Media circles for awhile now… “The Army Wants a New Pistol” or whatever variation on that theme. The most recent version has Detonics as the shoe in for the contract, in an article designed as nothing more than advertising for Detonic’s pistol “THAT YOU CAN BUY NOW!”
Come on… it’s not even clever. It’s disappointing that Detonics would stoop this low. This is like as low as calling your single shot .308 Derringer pistol a “Pocket Sniper”. NO ONE BELIEVES YOU. Did the guy from EAA’s Advertising do this?
Here’s the facts. The Army has only a couple years ago signed a whole new contract for more M9 pistols. They recently signed another new contract to G-Code for holsters for these new M9 pistols. Here’s a shocker for the initiated… these new holsters are for the M9A1. So for those in Eugene Oregon, is it maybe possible that the replacement for the M9 just might be the M9A1?
Think about it.
