I can't imagine the Army having a war reserve of 1911's with out having a reserve of ammo. That being said, it doesn't mean they will turn it over. I would also imagine they have a large stock of parts to service these 1911s

This is why places like Crane and Anniston exist. There are tons of ammo stored in those types of locations. The only question is what types. At Crane, it would be for anything from 5.56mm up to 5" shells. I believe that all of the 16" rounds have finally been disposed of.

Some of you guys are forgetting or are unaware that the M45A1 and Mk23 pistols are in service. Of course there is a stockpile of .45 ACP.
