The Marine Corps ordered 30,000 Colt M1911s in 2011, but I heard the Marines didn't like them, so that didn't really work out.
They had an order for up to 12000 M45A1s ( the close quarter combat rail 1911), but the initial shipment didn't hold up that well. The frame was cracking from the rail. I think Colt fixed that by heat treating or something different. Even with that, I think young guys prefer Glocks because thats what they are use to.
