Which pistols are NATO classified?

Does this mean they are well tested and "proven" pistols?

Just to be clear, i'm talking about 9mm pistols.

Thanks.

Due to the fact that we use it, the Beretta M9 HAS to have a NATO inventory number!!

I'd guess the P228 (and maybe the 226) would be in there somewhere.

"I'd guess the P228 (and maybe the 226) would be in there somewhere."

Is that a guess or is there any info that makes you think that?

I know the Beretta is NATO.

What does the UK use as their pistol?

Since NATO doesn't have it's own military. I would assume whatever member nation's militarys bring into combat.

Could we define the terms first? What exactly does "NATO classified" mean? Issue by a NATO member? Listed in the NATO inventory (similar to NSN in the U.S. military?) Can shoot NATO spec (higher pressure) ammo?

Is denfoote's definition "has to have a NATO inventory number" reasonable?

let me be the first to belittle the question, does it matter? if we look at the history of the .308 and .223 cartridge it's really the US that sets the standards, sure there are a few european contributions like 105mm and 120mm tank rounds but the europeans can't even agree on a PDW round after so enthusiatically developing the concept. I don't really have much confidence in a NATO standards and if you pay attention to their marketing hype CZ has stated it's CZ-75 is used by more police forces than any other pistol in the world :rolleyes:

I was wondering just what "NATO Classified" meant myself. A big secret? Is it something they stamp on guns like Sears used to do? "Certified and Approved by NATO."

Why would it be important? :confused:

According to the Glock Buyers Guide Professional Edition, both the Glock 17 and 19 have NATO stock numbers. They are listed below, and can be found in the Buyers guide on pages 12 and 13.

Glock 17 NATO stock number 1005/17/114/3969
Glock 19 NATO stock number 1005/66/132/7731

per crazed_ss link for the P01
CZ P-01 NATO stock number NSN 1005-16-000-8619


I hope the above is helpful to someone, and I would suggest picking up a copy of the Professional Edition of the Glock buyers guide for the Glock aficinado(sp?)
