Marines Order $22.5M in Archaic Sidearms

via Fox

The Marines have placed a $22.5 million dollar order with Colt for 12,000 flintlock M1911 .45 caliber pistols

The Marines New-Old Sidearm: The M1911

Hmm, I thought that the M1911 was currently believed to be a fragile, unreliable, high maintenance relic of a bygone era.  What could they be thinking?

Maybe a properly built 1911 pattern pistol is more reliable than some might think.  Perhaps even more so than a Glock or H&K.
