    Perhaps this will lead to an order for a Tactical Garand?

    Weren't the MarSOC guys using Springfield 1911's?

    It'll be interesting to hear how they run for them. I'm curious if they considered any other 45's.

    In light of current events, I've sold all of my firearms.

    As if contracts to the military have anything to do with the item being tested vs the company producing the weapon.

    It's actually easier to carry two 8 round single stacks in a pouch than a giant, fat 14 rounder like you get with Para's. More ammo and an easier firearm to get a grip on for all that serve!! Win-win

    I'm thrilled they're going to a .45. But I'd rather see them go to an FNP45 instead. You can bow and kow-tow all you want about the 1911, but its a dog that has had its day, and its time to start looking at better .45's and not stop wallowing in the glory days of a classic design; otherwise we might as well bring back the Garand; I mean, who wouldn't choose a .30-06 over a .223?

    On another unrelated note, I'm somewhat leaning towards the fact that "modern" 1911's with all of their super-tight tolerences, don't work as well in the field. You get a bunch of sand in a machine that only has .002 thousandths of clearance, that machine stops working. The AK47 works because it cycles dirt, as well as lead.
