Glock has not changed much since they came into the industry back in the '80’s. In contrast every other manufacturer, including Sig, has moved forward by leaps and bounds. It did not surprise me they lost the contract, especially since Beretta didn’t even get in the door with their M9A3 which is a sweet pistol in upon itself.
My dad bought a Sig P320 which caught my attention with the SP2022 being the pistol that made me stop carrying my Kimber Super Carry Pro II. My new carry is more accurate than I am and I enjoy it greatly.
I have the 1911 rail gun, named the Colt 1911 M45A1. It is definitely a heavy gun and is interesting how it has two recoil springs instead of just one. The first one I saw I was recovering from another purchase so I couldn’t buy it. Had to wait nearly a year before I saw another one and that one I pounced on. It shoots like a champ and is definitely a bruiser. You can drive nails with it or cave in someone’s skull with how much heft it has. The beast is also cerakoted which is a bonus. Brownie points in that I got it before they changed the grip coloration and although I have not taken the time to look at any other M45A1’s it appears they have changed the cerakote coloring as well.
I always recommend the M45A1 to anyone wanting a 1911 in the $1,600-2,000 range to get one. It might not be as accurate as some of the custom handguns, but it is a literal tank and the cerakote finish will ensure it will handle whatever is thrown at it.
I blame MAC for making me buy the damn thing.
