      Glock L131A1

      The Glock L131A1 General Service Pistol, manufactured by Glock, is the latest addition to the RAF Regt arsenal.

      The pistol uses the in-service 9 x 19 Parabellum round, held in a high capacity 17rd polymer magazine, and is based on the highly successful Glock 17 line of pistols used by many of the world’s police and military organisations.

      The pistol possesses an integral safety system that does not require an external safety catch and this makes the weapon highly suitable for use in Close Quarters Battle situations and for roles where RAF Regiment gunners require a secondary weapon system close to hand.


      L105A2 Sig Sauer P226A2

      The L105A2 is the standard model The Sig Sauer P226A2 pistol (shown above). It has been brought into service within the RAF Regiment as an Urgent Operational Requirement for operations in Afghanistan.

      The Pistol is chambered for the 9 x 19mm Parabellem round. The standard SIG P226A2 incorporates a decocking lever that enables a round to be chambered and the pistol safely holstered. When required, the pistol can be drawn and fired in double action mode by simply pulling the trigger.

      The pistol is primarily used as a self-protection weapon.
