This has probably been hashed over before. There's another thread discussing the Corp once again adopting the 1911 and I didn't want to pollute the thread. Without regard to platform, I see no reason for adopting a firearm that isn't US manufactured for our military. If the US were truly weak in our offerings it might be a different story. That's not the case. We've got some of the finest manufacturers here and if they don't offer the platform, they can design and build it. In my opinion only, it should say Made in the USA....stamped on the barrel. Just a thought.
