Denmark seeks bids for new service pistol

06 June 2017

The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) has announced a request for tenders for the procurement of a new service pistol for the armed forces.

The seven-year framework agreement is worth an estimated DKK25 million (USD4 million), including spare parts, accessories, documentation, and services.

The Danish armed forces are looking for a light-weight, highly durable, striker-fired semi-automatic pistol with a 9x19 mm chamber fed by a high-capacity magazine.

The pistol will be delivered in two versions - regular and for concealed use - with day and night sights and equipped with an accessory rail.

The new handgun will replace the M/49 pistol (SIG P210) currently in service.
