Simon, most Marines will never see one of those 1911 handguns.

It is being purchased in relatively small numbers to replace worn-out 1911s that the MARSOC units have never stopped using. Regular Marines, will still use the M9 (or M9A1) from Beretta.

Who hesitates to call any Marine "regular", for obvious reasons!
Be of good cheer and mindful of your gun muzzle!
