This comes as a bit of a surprise, the Swiss Army recently announced that the Swiss Special Forces will not be issued the SIG SAUER P220 or SIG Pro pistols anymore. Three indendent elements from the Swiss Army conducted an evaluation process and came to the conclusion that their SIG’s just weren’t living up to their expectations. They have since decided to go with Austrian-made Glock 17 Gen 4 and Glock 26 pistols. They choose the Glock because of “reliability and durability”.
Not taking away anything from Glock or their renowned history of being one of the most reliable pistol designs of all time. But I have a funny feeling that costs played a major role in the Swiss Army’s decision.
