Pistols

The Joint Combat Pistol program has been suspended. However, it is clear that US forces will return in the future to a .45 cal ACP sidearm. Pending the decision on future pistol procurement from the Army, which is now in the process of conducting evaluation, suggested models are:

  • HK 45
  • Springfield XD
  • FNP 45
  • SIG P220
  • M1911A1
  • Glock 21SF

The 9mm is no longer standard, as the M882 round has been found to be unsuitable for modern combat. Until an official pistol is adopted, acceptable models are:

  • SIG P226
  • CZ 75


Ammunition

The Troop uses the following ammunition types:

  • M1911 ball .45cal
  • M882 ball 9mm NATO
  • M193 ball 5.56mm
  • M855 ball 5.56mm NATO
  • M856 tracer 5.56mm NATO
  • M80 ball 7.62mm NATO
  • M62 tracer 7.62mm NATO
  • M33 ball .50cal

The Quartermaster organizes group purchases of ammunition and storage of unit stockpiles.
