    U.S. Marine Corps special operators will soon be outfitted with Colt’s M45 Close Quarters Combat Pistol, marking the first time in nearly 30 years that Colt pistols will accompany Marines into combat...

    They said the civilian model would sell for $1,995. Too rich for my blood, but a good looking pistol and I'm glad the Corps got this one.

    Actually, they have been using 1911s for quite a while. Kimbers if I recall. These are simply to replace those that have worn out. I was a little surprised the USMC did not select the cheaper and, IMHO better suited, HK MK24.

    And it is NY legal with its 7 round magazines!

    Again I think it these 1911 guys behind the magazine limits!

    I don't think the price for the "civilian" is out of line for a Colt. I like it but I am not a fan of the rail on 1911s I have a 1911 with a rail and never use the rail. It don't fit in my holsters so it needs a special holster. I can see the rail for the troops. but not for me. Nice looking new product.

    That's a sweet pistol. Looks sharp, great color.

    But for the same money, I'd rather have the IWI Tavor Bullpup Carbine being revealed at Shot Show.

    I guess all the MEU(SOC) pistols that are built on Colt frames don't count.

    Hate to see it happen. Now the current administration is going to be classifying 1911's as a assault weapon and want to ban them from civilian sales.
