Trust Trade, the assigned sole authorized distributor of GLOCK in the Philippines, has announced in its social networking page that the delivery of GLOCK 17 pistols to the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) is complete.
“Proud to have taken part in one of the biggest military sales of GLOCK worldwide,” Trust Trade said.
In September this year, National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana revealed that the acquisition of around 74,000 GLOCK pistols is in process.
“Practically I mentioned the same thing to Secretary Mattis and other people I talked to because we are procuring their 74,000 Glock pistols which is now being certified by the US Congress,” Lorenzana said in September days after meeting with US Defense Secretary James N. Mattis in US.
