Looks like the USMC has contracted with Colt to supply 1911A1 45ACP due to deliver by 2017. Gee, what happened to Glock for consideration? Just had to voice my opinion here on this. Why a 1911????? I own one of the finest 1911's today. An Ed Brown. Love it for personal use and protection. However, why on earth would I want to go to a war zone and be reduced to an 8 round mag when a Glock 21 can hold 13 rounds of 45ACP? Heck, even a Glock 17 can hold 17 rounds of 9mm!! I thought the 40S&W was going to get a look, but I guess that did not pan out. We all know that the 1911 is not for novices. It takes a lot of care and maintenance. The military needs to have a side arm that is easy to take down, easy to maintain, easy to clean, and is accurate to shoot. The Glock fits the bill in all of these categories and more. Yeah, I know it is a foreign company, but so is Beretta. Glocks are just not manufactured here. What do you all think?
