Marines-New-Close-Quarter-Battle-Pistol-CQBP



Has anybody been able to find any details about the Marines' new Colt M45. What is different between wait they are getting and what we are currently able to buy. I know the cerakote is different. What is it though, flat earth? And they have different grips. Anybody know what kind those are?

WOW! 22.5 MILLION BUCKS FOR 4000 PISTOLS....TALK ABOUT WASTE?

No kidding, that's almost $6,000.00 a pistol. Surely that's a typo but knowing our government, probably not.

The 22.5 million is a contract that will run till 2017 and its not to exceed 12,000 unit, thats aproximately $1800 per.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

That is some better, but at $1800 it should come with a lil sister for a bug.:p

its not just the guns but also spare parts magazines and training. so its actualy a very good buy

cuba 07-31-2012 10:33 PM

I'm sure that $1800 covers the cost of development, spare part, support, and such.

i for one wont begrudge our troops the best combat handgun in existance.

rocshaman 07-31-2012 10:57 PM

Totally agree with you Jon, personally I never thought the Baretta was a good idea for any of our military people.

If anything the decision for the Marines to once again adopt the 1911 as their CQBP validated the superiority of the 1911 over others.
