Half a decade into its search for a new handgun, the Army has chosen Sig Sauer’s P320 as its new service pistol.

Here’s what we know so far:

  • The P320, released by Sig Sauer in 2014, is a polymer striker-fired pistol, according to a statement from the gunmaker.
  • The new sidearm will replace the M9 Beretta, the Army’s pistol of choice for more than 30 years, according to an Army announcement Jan. 19.
