As much as I like the 1911, it probably been better to go with a Glock in 45 ACP or 10mm.
Yeah, there are more modern handguns out there in .45. But I guess that after the disaster that was the Joint Combat Pistol program, they decided it would be easier to just buy more stocks of something that was already in service.
I agree with you.
The M1911 is my favorite pistol but I too think the Glock would be the better choice. It is just as reliable, holds a whole lot more rounds and fits the hands of more people than the Beretta which I also like.
Due to EPA regulations, Glocks cannot be fully assembled in the US. The Tenifer finish is banned from being applied here.
I think my Glock21SF is technologically better than this 1911 in every way 13 shots & looks correct with a flashlight on it. This is a nostalgia choice 100%.
