The G19X is an excellent pistol that will deliver users maximum reliability in a size that is practical for everyday self-defense and personal protection.

The goal of the Army’s Modular Handgun System program was to provide soldiers with a new sidearm for personal protection. American military members deserve the very best – and this program aimed to give soldiers the very best pistol.

Companies competed within this program to replace the Beretta M9 as the Army’s service pistol. The M9 had been the sidearm for decades since its introduction in 1986 during the Cold War era.

Some of the best companies in the world participated and submitted pistols incorporating their latest advances and developments. The pistols were all world-class, but in the end only one could be chosen for the contract.

The Glock is an easy to maintain, reliable pistol for the serious sport shooter or the concealed carry person and is relatively inexpensive for about $750.
