Colt has literally bled to death the M1911 design over the last 100 years. They have tried to revive it as a valid modern military design in a world where the M1911 belongs in a military museum. Well, Colt got through to the Marine Corps the M45A1. The Corps unwavering commitment to tradition went with a pistol which was outdated and, in the end, quickly replaced with a practical Glock 19. Now for a M1911 aficionado, this is a refined M1911 giving the updates of a firing pin block and Mil-STD-1913 rail. The tan Cerakote proved to be problematic. The M45A1 is perhaps the final M1911 to enter and leave US service.
