Emma Fernandez writes "Britain's military is changing its standard-issue pistol to the Austrian-made Glock from the US-built Browning it has used for 40 years, with troops in Afghanistan to get them first, officials said Friday.

The defence ministry said it had awarded the 9-million Pounds ($14-million, 11-million-euro) contract to Glock because the sidearms are lighter, more accurate and can carry more bullets than the Browning.

"We are determined to provide our troops with the best possible personal kit available and these new Glock 17s will give them greater firepower and accuracy on operations," defence equipment minister Philip Dunne said."
