Since its introduction, it has been adopted by some of the most elite military and law enforcement agencies across the globe including the U.S. Army as the M17,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of Sig Sauer, said in a news release. “We are very proud to add the specialized forces of the Norwegian Police to this list of elite agencies, and we look forward to developing and expanding this partnership.”
