    Default USMC Adopts G19 and AIWB

    http://soldiersystems.net/2017/11/08...edium=facebook

    Now if we could just get them running RMR's...

    Aside from concealability, the M007 has several physical improvements over its predecessor. The grip lacks finger grooves but has a textured frame, improving the ergonomics of the weapon and providing a consistently comfortable grip with traction for a wider range of users. The ambidextrous slide stop allows for both right- and left-handed use. The magazine release of the M007 can also be changed and the magazine well is flared, making the system easier to reload.

    I would almost bet money that the guy who submitted this for approval to the USMC, is a member of the forum.

    This looks to be a plan just for the plain-clothes CID and EP guys. It's difficult to imagine integrating AIWB into the normal uniform standards. Though it certainly could be done, it would be a huge change. And the military isn't known for making radical changes.

    It's even more difficult, though, to imagine an undercover Marine. No matter how you dress them or scatter them through a crowd, how difficult would it be to spot the Marines?

    I love that there is someone there who is following the art closely enough to be at the leading edge, but I cannot be optimistic about the widespread adoption of such a workable system. Maybe if the Marine Corps keeps it small, they can fly this under the radar. But I foresee some general officer coming along and demanding that the holster have a thumb snap. And then another will demand a hard attachment point to the belt. And pretty quickly they will ruin the whole thing. I hope they can prove me wrong.

    CID agents are good at blending in. Most of their offices have some very good under cover agents, and a large portion if their cases are solved with under cover work.

    I wonder if the holster is going out for bid, or if they are allowing COTs purchases by individual Marines or Commands

    If I remember correctly soldiers *in uniform* are not allowed to conceal weapons, at least in when there is a possibility of combat/interaction with enemy troops.
