    Talking New Colt M1911 Rail Gun USMC models are being made under a military contract

    Well i dont now if you guys have been lookin' around the web on colt new lately but Colt has a new $22.5 million contract with the military to supply M1911 rail guns for the Marines. not every Marine, but enough for over 10,000 Marines as of now. I actually found out at the factory because my dad gave me a tour and i saw these beautiful guns and got to hold one. I have some pics but they are a little different from the ones i saw at the factory. the ones there had USMC engraved on the slide next to Colt, bu that was the only thing i noticed. The soldiers i imagine will be happy to replace the 9mm they use. i hope they see how effective these .45s are and supply all the troops with these. Thy have a beautiful coyote tan finish.

    Great looking 1911. I'm sure our Marines will love them!

    It's about time. Seems like things always go full circle, although I like the looks of the original 1911A1s and 1911s better.

    Pretty old news. There was a decent of colt bashing due to frames cracking during the testing but they won the contract. All the facts were never given to the public so it is really hard to state the complete circle.

    This was mainly from other non colt websites. If you dig you can find the info on 1911 forums going back a number of months.

    Glad to see the money stay here and go to one of the best companies in my eyes.

    i would love that too! they are still in production now considering i saw them being made at the factory this when i was there, so they are still giving them to the troops who deserve these beautiful tools of destruction . apparently the smith and wesson 1911 almost got the spot.
