    The article said modular. I assume this is like the Sig 320 serialized fire control group. I know the Beretta APX has a removable chassis; the article said Walther too. I didn't know that the Q series had a removable chassis.

    Modular does not equal removable chassis.

    The article also said ď This requirement can be achieved by offering a single frame with small, medium and large backstraps.Ē

    Maybe it's gonna be the new Walther--the PDP. Seems like it would fit the requirements. Not sure if they're mandating a safety; but I'm sure they could put one on.

    Also...

    Think they'll surplus out their Hi-Powers?

    Interesting they specify the pistol manufacturer must also supply (I assume that means manufacture themselves?) a suppressor. That by itself basically gives the contract to SIG, as I don't know any other handgun manufacturer that also builds suppressors.

    Canadian tenders work one of two ways:

    1) some bureaucrat picked something and wrote the tender to get it and eliminate everything else;

    2) there isn't a good understanding of what we actually need, so they specified something nobody makes, with features nobody uses, requiring proprietary design characteristics no one will give us, in the hopes that it will be built by a company that wants nothing to do with us.

    I assume the plan is to buy the 320. Although without thinking too hard...would the APX potentially meet the requirements? That'd be a cool surprise pick.

    But realistically, they plan to buy the 320.
    I designed a boat and now I'm building it. This is where that's happening:

    I hope they will actually do some real comparison testing to determine which is best. At least then we will have some data to point to. I hope HK, Beretta and FN make hard pushes on this one. But I agree, it is likely they will just pick the 320 so they can integrate with us.

    And yet there is a thread running on some Canadian outfit pulling their P320s after a leg shot.
    So a. they already HAVE 320s and b. don't like them.
