U.S Customs and Border Protection awarded Glock Inc. an $85 million contract to supply G19, G26 and G47 pistols, but has anyone seen a G47. Is it a Big Foot story? Not even! The Glock 47 was specifically developed for DHS CBP. Huh? Not only that but it will not be available commercially!
Here’s the 30,000 foot view…
The G47 is assembled with a full length slide on a G45 frame with a flared magazine well. Note that a G17 slide will not fit the G47 although they are the same length. We’ll be keeping an eye out for any new insights, including why it won’t be commercially available.
