    Hoorah!!!!!

    I just bought a Colt Rail Gun, blackened. This makes me want to modify it into a USMC M45 clone.

    I'd like to see support for this statement. I've read two articles so far, and haven't seen anything about this.

    What was the price per unit again?? :eek::eek:

    At least the Devil Dogs, some of the best fighters on the planet, are getting one of the best pistols available for their defense. *tips hat*

    The recoil spring as you call it is actually called an action spring by JMB because its primary purpose is to ready a round to action.

    shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

    Fine, wuteva. Last I checked, JMB was dead and vernacular changes quite a bit over the course of 100 years.

    I would think that calling it a "double action" spring would reasonably be expected to cause a little confusion today, considering common usage of the term "action" when regarding the 1911.

    So sorry I got confused.

    Hey Man. :eek:

    Just because I wouldn't personally buy one of those headache-out-of-a-box pistols doesn't mean I don't want our troops to have quality kit. :cool:

    This is a well built pistol, with modern features and proven reliability. I would be first in line to ***** if they chose any weapon system that did not offer the criteria and battlefield pedigree of this Colt to protect them. *respect*

    Thanks for the props. ;)

    Agree, "dual action" would have been less confusing.

    shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun
