  • NYPD Duty Guns....

    I was curious as to what guns are on the approved list for on-duty guns and off duty guns.

    Thanks.

        I'm (hopefully) about to go into the academy, and this might sound like a dumb question. Are we allowed to practice with these guns (at the range of course) before we decide to use one of them for ourselves.

          No. You get an opportunity to handle each duty gun for aminute at the academy. Then you have to decide which one you want.

          If your a male and have a decent grip get the glock. If not get the S&W but dont get the Sig ( terrible DAO pull )

              So they do not allow the DAK trigger then?

                yea the glock is pretty reliable and easy to use.. i personal think the S&W is a good classic gun... is it the .40 S&W and glock? or is it the 9mm? where in NY are you guys from

                  I was thinking the same thing. DAK is just starting to catch on with LE agencies though, so maybe it's still too new for NYPD. I would definitely take a Sig P226 DAK over the others. Too bad.

                    DAK triggers are excellent triggers. I hate traditional DAO triggers.

                      No all duty guns are Double Action Only except the Glock (safe action )

                      The DAK has been tested and is continuing testing in a different weight of pull.

                      All NYPD guns are 9mm DAO

                      Except for the revolvers which are .38spl. DAO

                        remember the glock 19 is a compact, so if you have big hands, it might not be the best fit for you. My hands are huge, so the curved back smith or the sig were my best option.

                          Haha

                          I don't work for the NYPD, I'm just saying this cuz its funny...

                          I have a S&W 500 MAG on my badge as an "off duty" weapon.

                          ahh, the one with the 6" barrel.

                            What gun is really the best one to use? people keep saying that the Sig rust and the Glock jams alot. that can be trouble out there in the streets.

                            So my question is, even if you clean them will that still happen?

                            Just would be nice to know for the future.

My glock 23 Ive had for a few years now and put Thousands of rounds through it, the other two a G26 and a G36 ive put a few hundred through each. I have NEVER had any kind of jam on any one of them. Im not saying they don't because im sure they do, but this is all based on my experience with them that Ive never had a problem.
                              ok thank you because I like the feel of the glock. I'm going to go with that one then.
