With its Close Quarter Battle Pistol, Colt is continuing to take the tried-and-true M1911 pistol and modify it to meet the evolving needs of its customers. Colt once again fulfills and surpasses the expectations of its clients in areas where quality and craftsmanship are required. This handgun has brand-new, intriguing characteristics. The CQBP is a tactical pistol that can be easily customized for any military thanks to the Picatinny Rail, which provides the adaptability to attach tactical light and laser attachments to the receiver.
More than 100 years ago, the Colt M45a1 was chosen as the official sidearm for America’s Armed Forces. Today, a Colt M45a1 is once again proudly serving at the side of our country’s military. After a rigorous selection process, the United States Marine Corps selected the Colt Rail Gun as their Close Quarters Battle Pistol (CQBP). This marks the first time since the end of World War II that a Colt 1911 is being shipped to the United States Government.
To honor the brave men and women of this important staple of America’s military might, the Colt M45a1 CQBP will be made available in limited quantities. What makes the CQBP stand out is its Desert Tan Ion Bonded Stainless Steel Receiver and Slide, Novak® 3 Dot Night Sights and Flat, Serrated Mainspring Housing with Lanyard Loop. The pistol also features an Enhanced Hammer, Colt Tactical Ambidextrous Safety Lock, and a 5” National Match® Barrel.
