Glock secured a contract to supply São Paulo Military Police with the Glock 22 handgun, the company said in an announcement Friday.

The Georgia-based gun maker said it beat out competitors Beretta and Sig Sauer to mark the first time a Brazilian law enforcement unit solicited through an international competition.

“All tests were implemented in a very transparent and public manner as any interested party could participate in these tests as observers,” Patrick Voller, Glock’s America’s managing director, said in the statement.

According to the announcement, the competition included a 10,000-round endurance test without cleaning and a 2-meter drop test from six different angles for a total of 64 drops.

Glock said the international contract will provide 5,000 Glock 22 pistols — handguns chambered in .40 S&W — for the department’s special forces division.
