    I'd say any of those would work. The FN may be out just for price of rounds.

    M&P or sig. Glock only if they add a manual safety as currently configured does not meet standard. None of the others have the production capability.

    Surprised no mention of the FN FNX 45 Tactical. 45 acp, fully ambi, high(er) capacity, threaded barrel, cut for optics. Seems this would be a solid choice.

    The 21 is certainly out with that huge grip

    I was under the impression Sig was planning the P320 as their entry - one core part "trigger group" and everything else interchangeable for caliber, grip, etc. It's impressive flexibility, especially from a purchasing perspective, for a military organization.

    If the military is willing to make everyone use one caliber then it's hard to count Glock out. Cheap and proven reliability. Lack of a manual safety is not a negative - it was a requirement that originally motivated the design.

    Ultimately, I think Beretta will manage to keep a change from taking place for a few more years. There's not a compelling caliber to completely remove them from making the argument that it's cheaper to keep them than rip and replace. I think it will take a rifle caliber performance round in a pistol to really motivate the military to do something. FiveSeveN is too large a grip for smaller hands.

    Translation:

    Beretta: "Look, the M9A3 has new grips and sights, it's completely redesigned!"

    Army: "Uhm...No"

    Beretta: "Please?"

    Maybe it's because I'm no fan of the 92/M9, but I can't be the only one who finds this funny.

    Hey! Don't knock the importance of those grips and sights - Talking with a co-worker (retired Navy Lt. Cmdr). He was assigned to a Marine unit in (I can't remember if it was Iraq or Afghanistan, but you get the point). For a firearm they only issued him a Beretta but for the entire time he was deployed NEVER gave him any bullets!!!! He said he was in a hole wondering if it would be better to hold the slide and hit with the grips or hold the handle and hit with the slide.

    I also have to wonder if there was a shortage of 9mm or the Marines taking advantage of the situation
