The Marines and Air Force want the Army’s new handgun. Who else is next in line? | Army Times

Airmen will soon carry the military’s newest handgun, a 9mm pistol first fielded by the Army, since requested by the Navy and Marines, and soon to be followed by the Coast Guard.

But airmen will carry the compact version of the Modular Handgun System sidearm that the other services bring to the fight.

“We’ve started the procurement process and plan to buy approximately 130,000 weapons,” wrote Laura McAndrews in an email to Military Times. “We determined the M18 MHS, the compact version, will best meet the Air Force mission needs, and selected it as the standard handgun for all Air Force users.
