Put it this way, if the CMP sells the cerakoted M45ís, they will go straight to auction. The Marines bought approx 4000 and one battalion swapped out a thousand units, which were somehow sold by Colt to a liquidator who then sold them to the public. Some were training guns, some went to HQ and support units, and some went overseas to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Sign me up for one of these for 1000.00. The USMC on the slide wonít be xíed out, and they are the second smallest batch produced behind Singer. I recommend not refinishing. By the way, try finding one for less than $4000.00 on the secondary market. I would die and go to heaven if one of these showed up at my ffl.

Yes.......... I saw those when they originally went out.......... 1500.00$
I figured as a US ARMY Vet, I'd leave them for the Marines, of course by the time
I reconsidered............. gone and the mark up was SHARP!

The DOD was releasing 1911ís under the aid to law Enforcement agencies program ( canít remember the official name ) but police departments could requisition 1911ís for law enforcement use. Many that I have seen have ANAD rebuild stamps on the right side of frame. I donít see the military using a modern non approved finish for rebuilding these old guns so doubt (other than the aforementioned USMC guns) 1911ís rebuilt and stored were ever ceracoated
