The Secret Service is reportedly moving away from their longstanding use of Sig Sauer handguns and is set to transition to new model Glocks in coming days.

As reported Wednesday by many outlets, Secret Service Director James Murray communicated internally that the agency will be moving to the 9mm Glock 19 MOS Gen five. Tactical teams will use the 9mm G47 MOS Gen five and G26 Gen five, matching the previously announced $85 million contract awarded by the US Customs and Border Protection.

The 7,000-robust federal law enforcement agency charged with defending the nation’s leaders and investigating crimes such as economic institution fraud dates to 1865. Just just before the Secret Service transferred from the Treasury Division to the Division of Homeland Safety in 2003, the force adopted the Sig Sauer P229R chambered in .357SIG for each use by uniformed division officers and unique agents. Prior to that, the agency employed Sig P228 9mm pistols.

Glock previously advised that all 3 models employed by CBP function a flared magwell for more quickly magazine modifications, the match-grade Glock Marksman Barrel (GMB) for enhanced accuracy, and Ameriglo BOLD sights. The CBP handguns all have extended magazine floorplates, presumably for greater access to strip away magazines in the sandy, dusty circumstances along the Southern border.
