In September I wrote that the Marine MEU(SOC) M1911 pistol appeared to have finally been given an official DoD designation. A solicitation request, number M6785410R1030, was issued last week for M45 parts …
The intent of this sources sought request is to identify potential qualified 8(a) small businesses that can provide the attached weapons parts list for the M-45, MEUSOC Pistol.
This confirms earlier evidence that the pistol will henceforth be known as the M45.
Thanks to Mark for spotting the solicitation request.
