The Danish army will change the pistols for the first time in 70 years

33
The Danish Army has opened a competition to replace the Swiss SIG P210 gun that is in service with the country's Armed Forces. The gun, still used by army units, entered service with the Danish army in the 1949 year and should be replaced with more modern models by the 2019 year.


The Danish army will change the pistols for the first time in 70 years

SIG P210 in its "classic" form.


According to the terms of the tender, two pistols should come to replace SIG Sauer P210 at once, or rather, a full-size and shortened version of the same model. To date, four manufacturers are participating in the competition, transferring to the Danish military department five samples of full-size and one each of the compact versions of their pistols.

The Danish army is testing pistols Canik TP9 and TP9SF Elite, Glock 17 and Glock 19, SIG Sauer P320 in Full Size and Compact, as well as S&W M & P9 M2.0 and M2.0 Compact. Tests should be completed by the end of next year, and already in 2019, the Danish Ministry of Defense plans to start purchasing new pistols. Thus, the SIG P210 will be in service with the Danish army for at least seventy years.

The SIG P210 pistol was developed by the Swiss company Swiss Arms in 1947 and gained wide popularity due to its reliability. P210 is considered one of the most accurate pistols in the world, because it allows aimed fire at a distance of up to 100 m. SIG P210 (later - SIG Sauer P210) was serially produced from 1947 to 2005 years, during which time 350 000 units were released, transmits "Warspot"

      Yes, there used to be smooth guns. They didn’t cling to anything. And now, not just a holster is required, but already unloading

        There was a time, the Danes were warriors. But then a white god came with a Jewish pedigree and the Danes a new leuper would no longer help. Because I’m not warriors already.

        No doubt, they know how to make pistils and guns over the hill ... Elegant design, convenience, accuracy ...
        But the war, it’s excuse the dirt, and then the failures begin ... then the skew of the cartridge, then the jamming of the frame ... but a lot of things that can lead to the death of a fighter.
        The weapon must be RELIABLE ... Well, at least - a club, does not require cleaning and lubrication, it does not need ammunition and, accordingly, reloading, unique simplicity and unsurpassed reliability, but what a killer ...

            Well, by the way, yes. He’s a personal weapon, they used to think that he was intended to settle personal accounts, and the traditions in the army are very strong, and out of habit they equip officers laughing

            Wise guys! A gun is needed as a last chance to survive. Anyone who fought knows, by hook or by crook, they have acquired non-standard pistols. Sewed a pocket on his chest underneath. Let it be when it is not needed, than it will not be when it is needed. Strategists are couches.

              what are you saying ????? so I couldn’t say the experience of military operations, so a couple of shooting postings doesn’t count ... but you know, I had a friend Misha, the intelligence captain, so he didn’t carry a gun with him, although he probably couldn’t get it and it’s better .. ... so he once told me that I was very very surprised and still honestly surprised .. he took along with him an ak74 as a weapon in case of failure or or a breakdown of the main ak ... and now enlighten Primus where did you fight What kind of pestle did you have and how did it help you out?

    The pistols will be changed, that is, they will rearm, and they can be considered ready to confront Russian aggression.

    The rearmament rate of pistols is slightly slower than that of the French laughing . Although yes, it cannot be compared with PM.
    On the other hand, Colt M1911 has been in service for more than 70 years.

      The Colt 1911 is a very good gun. not surprising at all. that he is still in service with many armies. I was in the army, they gave me as an M-113 driver. it is true that later they took away a part in his unit and handed a pen in his place. machine gun NK-11 (Heckler und Koch) but I managed to shoot from the Colt, then I also had the chance to shoot from this a couple of times in civilian life. great thing by the way. just that .. the store is small. and so ... great thing.

    SIG P210 (later - SIG Sauer P210) was mass-produced between 1947 and 2005, about 350 units were produced during this time, Warspot reports.


    Something like that is not enough for 58 years.

    Well, a gun is not a primary weapon. Yes, and they need them relatively few. But the press will be held as a rearmament of the army. Almost preparation for a meeting of polite people ....

        dear .and age is already decent. in short not comme il faut with such a serve. though ... ridges have always been cool weapons. but the price ... it's easier to buy a glock. and still have money to wash the shop.

          Glock is reliable, but he is thrown stronger than Colt, you can’t name him a sighting one, Ceseti is more accurate.

            Well, yes, throws up, and Chez generally sporting accuracy. but Cesa moody. it has a shutter like the G-3 works according to the same principle of locking, and gives it accuracy. if we talk about ChZ-75. but the glock can be assembled from various parts. he is like a constructor. very easy to handle. than wins his fans. in principle, the army no longer needs. since the gun is the weapon of last hope. when the enemy remains 4-5 meters. and there accuracy does not play a special role. but the modularity of glock wins. You can assemble a compact one, with a long barrel and a more capacious magazine. make a submachine gun from it for example. but purely like a gun, just for shooters the colt is the best. shoot from a colt is a pleasure, Which can’t be said about Glock or Chez.

    In vain they started it! The Swiss machine turned out to be very high quality - the chest figure is striking in skilled hands, as they say, at 100 meters. I don’t think that the Danes participate in battles so often with them. But for the test shooting the most.
    It would be better to tell when our PM will be replaced everywhere with something worthwhile.

      And why, in fact? As they said here, a gun in the army is needed to shoot himself. PM copes with this task easily if you need to know where to shoot. And if you don’t know, then replacing PM with something else will not change much laughing drinks

        And the standards for fire training how to take to take? I served in special forces and I had an APS, so calmly knocked out 27-28 from him. He shot in the Czech Republic from the General Staff and the Gyurza, so there were no less than 26 either. And then, when he returned to the “infantry”, he only knocked out 25 with the PM sometimes. So much depends on the apparatus, including premiums.

          I don’t remember such standards, I served for a long time (81-91), but I remember that many of us were engaged in high-speed shooting, including and I. They shot from the PM, did not complain laughing drinks

        Well, there were others who were experts .. you see PM doesn’t fit because the platoon com should go into battle with the pestle and he doesn’t need an assault rifle since he should command .. clowns in one word

          Well yes. I recall that the standard armament of the platoon / group commander is 1 pistol in a holster on the side, the second in front, behind the chest strap of the knapsack, and in the hands - an automatic machine. How to command ?! belay clowns agree drinks

            Well, here it’s been to me with foam at the mouth that it’s been a long time since a couple of warriors proved that the infantry’s full-time weapon (ak or m4) distracts the platoon commander from coordination and leadership in battles ... and they say that instead of leading him, he will shoot a scoundrel at the enemy. .. and pm he turns out to be rather weak and small and needs a glock or a berret so that if he could engage in battle with him .. so to speak, the weapon of the last chance, namely for this pm is weak and he needs a powerful army pestle on his belt))) )))))))))))))))))
