• The first new pistol for the U.S. Army in 35 years is built on a modular framework, in part to accommodate the wide variety of hand sizes among enlisted men and women. This has become a more significant issue over the years as the number of women in combat roles has increased. The U.S. military has a history of limited options to meet the needs of women, a sort of technical debt owing to being a gender-restricted organization for most of its existence. Equipment like prosthetics and boots originally designed solely for men have contributed to worse patient outcomes and higher injury rates for female soldiers. In a world designed for men, this is a step in the right direction.
