MARSOC rearms with Glock 19s

Marine Corps Special Operations Command (MARSOC) has decided to outfit its elite Raiders with the Glock 19. The choice was made over the custom .45-pistols they have carried since 2012. The reliable, easy-to-maintain 9mm pistol features a polymer frame and a 15-round magazine.


Even though the Marine Corps had completed an exhaustive search for a new MARSOC pistol in 2012, individual operators indicated they preferred the Glock over the customized .45 Close Quarter Battle Pistols the Marine Corps had purchased with a a $22.5 million contract to Colt Defense LLC.
