The Canadian Forces (CF) are looking to replace all current types of pistols in use with a newer weapon and is gathering information on the Price and Availability of weapons and the number of potential contenders as part of its planning and
budget process. Personnel from all services of the CF will use these pistols for self-defence.
The GSP will replace the 9mm Browning High Power (HP) and the 9mm Sig Sauer Model 225 pistol.
The sought family of General Service Pistols is based on the direct fire effects capability requirements, in the context of
the Future Security Environment (FSE), that are required to support Adaptive Dispersed Operations (ADO) in the Army and other roles and missions of Canada’s Naval and Air Forces.
