Couple of thoughts here....
1) Price....I believe Glock deeply discounts to Police and Military.
2) Ammo capacity.
3) Taxes. Yes the gubmint will probably get a tax break as they are coming from an EU country.

I wonder what they will do with all those old Brownings?

Maybe end up on the surplus market?

Oops, those were stupid questions.

Rod, do you know if there was a competition for the contract?

After a further read, it does mention competition, but doesn't specify manufacturers.

Well sir, those are three pretty good reasons for a government to consider.

Britain basically shamed their gun manufacturing out of their country a long time ago. They will probably see the folly that action the next time germany gets a little rowdy.

It's a shame to Britian used to make some wonderful firearms. I feel sorry for the people there who are still freedom loving. I wish we could do a dumb dumb liberal gun grabber buy back, let the crown have his subjects back and we'll take some freedom loving patriots off of their hands.

Does this mean we get to send some Liberals over there in exchange?

4) Reliability in most any condition. The Glock 17 is a workhorse which rarely fails. Just hope they are going with Gen3's as opposed to Gen4's

I think it's a smart choice. They are easy to maintain and when you don't have time for a good cleaning they still go boom!
