Trivia[]

  • The M45 MEU(SOC) was used in the United States Marine Corps until more recently, where it has been phased out by the updated M45A1. It differs from the actual 1911 model used by the real-life FBI SWAT, which is a Springfield Professional 1911A1 Custom.
  • Strangely enough, the gun lacks a rail in front of the trigger guard, which most Special Operations M1911s are equipped with for modularity.
    • This is true for the original M45 MEU(SOC) as it lacks a rail. Its successors, the Kimber ICQB and Colt Rail Gun (M45A1) both feature rails.
