It seems that Jarhead's outfit (notice I did not say 'former', as it's understood - Once a Marine, Always a Marine) has contracted with Colt Defense to produce some 4000 newfangled M45 Close Quarter Battle Pistols for our warriors.
My, my. Does that not bear an uncanny resemblance to John Moses Browning's Model of 1911?
Why yes, I reckon it does. Apart from the CeraKote-style finish, beavertail grip safety & Commander hammer, BoMar type rear sight, accessory rail, and goofy looking grips (so I'm partial to exotic wood grips), its innards are essentially - possibly totally - identical to my SS Series 80 Mk IV.
Now don't that just beat all? And in an adult caliber, no less!
