Default Corps' new Colt



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?

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

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

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

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

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.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun
