Colt Rail Gun M45 MEUSOC 1911 Contender

    The photo below is of Colt’s entry in the Marine Corps competition to find the next M45 MEU(SOC) pistol used by Force Recon. It is based on the Colt Rail Gun 1911 (O1980RG) with a custom desert-colored finish and Novak night sights. A very nice looking gun.
