Glock 17 Gen 5 FR Coyote – French Army edition. 18 months ago we mentioned in the GlockShop News that the French Army had decided to run with the Glock 17 as their new side arm. The coyote framed G17 replaces the decades-old PA MAS G1 S and PA MAC50 pistols adopted by the French Armed forces.
The G17 FR pistols underwent stringent testing and emerged triumphant from stiff competition from all the usual contenders. This specific configuration of the G17 Gen5 FR is the first Gen5 pistol model featuring a coyote coloured frame.
Why Coyote not Flat Dark Earth (FDE)?
Coyote Brown works well with other solid colours, such as Brown Grey (Ranger Green) and Black. It also combines exceptionally well with camouflage patterns of almost every type. After being thoroughly tested during the tender process the Glock 17 Gen 5 FR Coyote is currently being deployed to several user groups within the French Armed Forces. They describe their new sidearm as: “ convincingly precise, reliable and easy to train.”
So why spend a grand more on Glock 17 Gen 5 FR Coyote than the stock 17G5
Forget about rarity and scarcity. The extras on the Glock 17 Gen 5 FR Coyotemodel male it a no brainer. The steel luminescent sights compared to the stock polymer sights the standard 17 come with are worth R2k the lanyard loop insert and the extended slide lock release another 500 now factor in the collectors value of a once off limited edition run from Glock and this truly is a good deal.
