Yes. There is a commercial version available as well. Not a general issue pistol for the marines, but it is replacing some pretty well worn, old and several times overhauled 1911s that they keep in stock.

This one has a Colt frame and Springfield slide that was purchased back in the '80s or '90s as part of an overhaul program for MEU/SOC. The wear lets you know it's been knocking around for a while.



At that time they also upgraded to King's sights, Beavertail, and ambi safety. Then a Colt Commander hammer along with upgraded trigger.

The above pistol was an inspiration for my rebuild of a Springfield that I found as a incomplete pile of parts at a pawn shop. I just didn't go with the ambi safety.
