i hope so and maybe even the 1911 ..

I see they want external and non external safetys the non ext safety i think the glock or eve the Hk usp varient 7 i think it is would work


i really dont see the armed forces going to a non external safety pistol though

I think the .45 GAP would be an option here (ducks airborn items) as it would allow a double stack mag, thus more capacity, in a package fitting smaller hands while still giving .45 performance.

In JHP, I prefer 9mm but if limited to ball I would want .45.

As for platform, there are simpler and more reliable platforms at a much lower unit price than the 1911.

too bad they follow the FMJ guidelines for warfare, since HP's would work so much better.

Simpler and more reliable?
Than a 1911?

Shirley, Tell me you don't mean that. :eek:

The 1911 has been in service longer, as a man stopper, than any other handgun design out there. It has seen almost 100 years of steady, hard usage that's, Dependability, Reliability and Durability.

What other handgun on the market has seen use for that long, other than a Single Action Army?

If I'm going to a gunfight and I can have only 1 handgun. I want a 1911. Or maybe my Wilson Tactical Elite built on an STI 2011, only because it carries 15 rounds. (Clint Smith said of the gun, "I wouldn't want to carry this thing around all day, but if I were going to a gunfight.....Very nice!!)

As for cost per unit. I really don't give a damn and neither should the government. (Murphy's Law collary: Your weapon was constructed by the lowest bidder.) This practice should stop where our military is concerned. Our guys should have the Baddest, most efficient death dealing weapons this country can produce.

As for simplicity, let's take a vote here. How many 1911 owners here can take apart their pistol down to it's basic componets. every spring and piece that can be detail stripped?

How many others can do that with anything else other than a 1911?

JMB made that gun simple. That's why it's still with us with such popularity.

Just this old vets opinion.

nothing wrong with the 1911. Modern designs just do it better. Less parts to take down, means ease of field stripping.

Suppressor Attachment Kit for operation of the pistol with and without sound suppressor
Most 45 ammo is subsonic and easier to supress than the supersonic 9mm. You will be cutting down on "specialty" ammo.

Shirley, I very much mean it.

I have a very nice 1911. It's also the last of my "defensive" caliber handguns I would grab if my life depended on it.

You pic 1000 off the shelf standard production 1911s, and I'll pic 1000 off the shelf each of Glocks, XDs, or Rugers (excluding the P345) and put them through a torture test straight out of the box (after initial cleaning) with factory magzines and see where the 1911 finishes. The other three will also beat the 1911 on price per unit.

Please understand that I am not talking about worked over 1911s or high end stuff like a Wilson Combat in the hands of a dedicated shooter. If that is the option give me a Kimber TLE or Warrior with Tripp magazines and worked over by Teddy Jacobson or the like.

We are talking about bulk purchase weapons to be put in arsenal use.

The P51 Mustang has been around a lot longer than the F16.

If your allowing 1000 off the shelf standard production 1911s built to SPEC, I'd take the bet.

Hum if its off the shelf non tinkered with 1911's ill take that bet to when you start adding all the dodads it wasnt orginally designed with beaver tail, extended ejector lower and flared port super light trigger pull Full length guide rod ...

The 1911 becomes what it once was reliable sure you will get a off the shelf one that acts up but that # will be no worse than a sig glock ruger or hk everone builds a turd now and then

I'm talking about making the rounds of as many gun shops as it takes or to the major distributors (I know the money for that would be rediculous), grabbing them up, and heading to the range.

Jeesh, I don't think I could take this kind of negativity twards the old slabsides. A 1911 would win that chalange hands down, even on a bad day. As mentioned a in Spec 1911 is the finest fighting handgun there is and ever was, with the S&W 586 and 686 rev's comming in 2nd.

It seems like the 1911 gets a bad rap on price because of all of the high-end elite models out there. The original 1911 was dirt cheap - the milspec version out there will still run you less than a Glock or XD. Also, the combat 1911's were built like rattle traps - loose as nuts. As the others have said above, the reliability issues come in when you start 'accurizing' the thing for target shooting and adding shootability features.

While it may be easier to detail strip a 1911 than most other pistols, it is more difficult to field strip than a glock or xd design. Those things are dirt simple.

I always thought the 1911A1 was a real simple weapon to field strip!?!?

Unless the military has changed their requirements, a Glock would not be chosen because of lack of re-strike capability. In the past, Glock has also been unwilling to agree to the military requirement of licensing other contractors to produce their product in times increased production demand (i.e. war).
