Viking Arms Ltd. Awarded UK MoD R9GSP Contract

We are proud to announce that Viking Arms Ltd. have been awarded the contract to supply the UK MoD with a new general service pistol and holster system. The contract, which was signed off by Col Peter Walden from DE&S, LWPB Abby Wood, at our new Glock Training Centre last month, is to supply the the latest Glock, Generation 4, G17, 9mm pistol along with a Radar holster system and retentive lanyard. The Glock Gen 4 G17 pistol designated L131-A1, will replace the current general service pistol, the Browning L9A1 and also the Sig 226, currently in service in theatre in Afghanistan, in early 2013.  The Glock G17, Gen 4 is the latest generation of the venerated G17 pistol and through the exacting  and rigorous trials demanded by the UK MoD has proved itself to be a world class beating sidearm. Radar 1957 an Italian holster manufacturer is to manufacture the new holster. Viking Arms will supply the new RDC holster alongside the Glock pistols in early 2013, manufactured in a high resistant polyform and supplied in Coyote Brown; the holster will offer a system to include drop leg and molle platforms along with a lanyard and magazine pouches.
