The Colt USMC M45A1 CQBP is the handgun used by Marine Corps operators.
Let the Military Arms Channel walk you through the Colt M45A1 handgun CQBP, the choice for Marine Corps Special Operations and adopted by their operators as their sidearm.
They show the tactical improvements and match it up against a classic 1911 for accuracy and performance.
Even with over a 100 years gone by, the 1911 design continues to prove itself as a reliable combat handgun with impressive stopping power, and it is fielded by some of the best warriors in America. Colt has taken the classic design and added tactical features and a rail mount to bring the venerable 1911 design into the 21st century.
If you want to get one of these beauties you are going to have to either show patience or get very lucky in your shopping. With only about 80 a month coming from Colt there is a waiting list; however the odd one can still be found in gun shops.
