The Polish armed forces this week inked a deal with the country’s storied small arms maker for a new 9mm pistol.
Fabryka Broni Łucznik Radom and the Polish Army released joint statements on Wednesday announcing that the manufacturer would produce 20,000 new VIS 100 handguns for the force in an effort to phase out various pistols. The guns, a version of FB’s PR-15 RAGUN pistol, will bear a name celebrating the country’s recent centennial celebration of achieving independence following World War I, blended with the popular VIS name used by FB’s famous 1935-era pistol used by the Polish military in WWII.
“We are proud that on the anniversary of the 100th anniversary of regaining independence by our country, we signed a contract for the supply of VIS 100 pistols for the Polish Army,” said Adam Suliga, FB’s board president. “This gun is the crowning achievement of development projects implemented by our company.”
The PR-15 is a full-sized hammer-fired semi-auto with a 15+1 capacity. Coated with a Tenifer finish
