British Armed Forces Adopt Glock 17

Looks like the Brits have replaced the L9 (Browning Hi-Power) with new Gen 4 Glock 17's. That's a huge deal for Glock and hopefully that may help open the door for Glock with other major militaries throughout the world. It's good to see the British weren't afraid of the lack of a manual safety. Maybe our own military will get over their fear too.

On another note, how awesome would it be if those Hi-Powers were exported to the US as surplus. I'd love to get my hands on a couple real military Hi-Powers.
