Kind of on topic… but kind of off topic. Nick at Valor just completed a very nice MEU(SOC)/M45 build for a buddy that we affectionately named the M45A2 project.

Idea behind the build was essentially, what would the MEU(SOC) look like if the PWS started building the next gen Colt replacement. I tried to blend both guns and add some evolved features to the mix.

Caspian Slide and Frame, Bar Sto threaded, stamped last 4 digits, tan ion bond, SOCOM contract RMR, Stan Chen magwell.

I served in the USMC from 89-93 and attended a MIMS course with a 2111 assigned to 2nd Force Recon. I visited him at their armory in French Creek quite regularly. I loved , what at that time, was the high speed weaponry. CAR15s, Barrett .50s, HK MP5s ( A2,A3,and SDs)….. and the MUESOC .45s !!!!!!

Wanted one for 30 years….. guess now it’s time to finally do it. Might not be a 100% exact but I’m gonna get close as I can if I build it. This thread has inspired me.

Who is really the go to builder these days that can get it built before I’m too old to enjoy it…. Incase I go that route ?

KCs Custom and Valor Precision seem to be the most popular.

Not to knock either of them, but it isn't a super difficult build if you know your way around a 1911.  Sourcing some of the parts is what's difficult.

That is my initial plan with 2 pistols I have set aside.

I’ve got a nice stainless SA that after a few mods, some strategic engraving, and a blackening bath would make a really nice 4th Generation MEUSOC. It has the Cross Cannons on the right side of Springfield Armory and Model 1911-A1 Cal .45 on the opposite side of the slide with Novak sights. It also has the forward serrations on the slide as well.

The other one I’m going to use is a new Tisas USMC 45 model to make a Generation 1 pistol. Yes I know the generation 1s all have US army on the receivers but I just couldn’t resist using the USMC marked receiver. I already ordered some MEUSOC parts from KC Customs to get it started ( sights, videcki solid trigger,  trigger kit /hammer, ambi safety, grip safety, and mainspring with lanyard loop). I plan on engraving the slide with 7790314 to mimic a the early hard slide and a few other strategic engravings to round it out.

I keep the progress posted here.

For the last several years this has been one of my favorite threads here on ARFCOM.  It feels good to be able to post pics of my finished project.  After about a year of gathering parts and a few more months with the builder (Valor Precision) I can finally posts pics of my MEUSOC 1911.  These are fresh pics after getting it picked up tonight.  I want to get some glamour shots later with my M40A5.  Wilson Mags will be here on Friday.  Hope to get it out to the range on Monday.

A few highlights...

-Early Springfield slide
-Bar-Sto barrel
-Clark grip safety
-Kings 201A thumb safety
-Videki's trigger

Scored a pretty nice early SA slide for my V2 build. Was going to engrave the plain one like a system hard slide ( 7790314) but I’d much rather use this one.




So far I got ….

Early SA Slide
KC Kustom Abi Safety
KC Kustom Front and Rear Sight
Wilson 66 Beavertail
MGW Trigger Kit ( KCK )
20 LPI MSH with Lanyard Loop
Pachmayr Grips
Vedecki 3 hole trigger

I swear there was a company making aftermarket ones.  Could also be with an email to Surefire, in case they have some extras for warranty purposes.

This is a long post so I apologize….

So I’ve kinda went slam crazy on my replica builds. Here is my plans as of now and if I’m heading in a bad direction please let me know as all my parts and guns are at my LGS except the Caspian as it’s in the production que. Now these will be pretty close but not 100% perfect clones other than the Caspian as it should be 100 % correct…. I think.

Variant 1——

1. Tisas GI w/ Govt and 1911A1 USMC marked frame
2.  7790314 engraved slide with RCS only
3. KCK Replica PWS Sights, grip safety, ambi safety, mainspring housing, and trigger / hammer kit
4. Videcki soild trigger
5. Pachmayer Grips
6. Bar-Sto Semi Fit
7. 1piece guide, GI plug, 18.5 recoil spring
8.  Ser# engraved on right side rear of slide, both sides of safety.

Variant 2———

1. Tisas GI w/ Govt and 1911A1 US Army marked frame
2.  SA Slide w/ cross cannons behind ejection port and RCS only.
3. KCK Replica PWS Sights, grip safety, ambi safety, mainspring housing, and trigger / hammer kit
4. Videcki 3 hole trigger
5. Pachmayer Grips
6. Bar-Sto Semi Fit
7. 1piece guide, GI plug, 18.5 recoil spring
8.  Ser# engraved on right rear side of slide, both sides of safety

Variant 4 ———

1. SA Frame with added govt engravings to help not correct receiver
2. SA Slide with cross cannons on right of ejection port and novaks sights and Front and Rear CSs
3. C&S USMC hammer group
4. KKC ambi safety
5. Modified SA Grip safety to favor Ed Brown
6. Bar-Sto Semi Fit
7. Videcki 3 hole trigger
8. Pachmayer Grips  
9. KKC mainspring housing
10. 1piece guide, GI plug, 18.5 recoil spring
11. Ser# engraved on right rear side of slide, both sides of safety.

Variant 4/5 (?)———

1. Caspian MEUSOC frame with MC serial number
2. Caspian slide with front and rear CSs and EGA on both sides and USMC on ejection side. Novak cut
3. C&S USMC Hammer Group
4. Ed Brown grip safety
5. Ed Brown Match Ambi safety
6. Videcki 3 hole trigger
7. Bar-sto Semi Fit
8. Pachmayer Grips
9. KKC mainspring housing
10. All other small parts off PWS build sheet

I do have a few questions.

1. I saw both bar-sto barrels marked with RTE and PWS… any rule as to which markings go with which variant? Early vs late variants ?

2. Are last 4 ser # on barrel?

3. Are the last 4 on the side of the grip safety or inside … seen both

4. What variant quit with the slide, ambi safety, grip safety serial number stamps? Seems like maybe V3 was the last ones or did it continue through all.

Thanks for any help on these projects !!

If I do one of these builds I will want novak sights with a tritium front dot probably. So is the above slide not correct for that and I would be better off with a later slide with the front cross cannons and serrations? Varient 4 i think? I think the above is only variant 1 correct?

If so I will probably throw the above slide up on the EE

Also does anyone know why the grips in the picture don't have the medallion? I actually snaged them at the CMP store. So they are some kind of surplus.

You could mock up one of the later SA guns, but in that case it would probably be easier to just start with a complete SA pistol.

Early Pachmayrs didn’t have them. I think they started putting them on in the mid 80s or maybe earlier.

Got 3 of them finished up today. Guess I’ll call them V1, V2, and V4. Now I took a lot of liberties on the receivers and some of the engravings and might have cheated here and there but over all this was the best I could do on what I had to work with. I’m pretty happy with them although I might refinish them again to get the slag out of the engravings a little better.

The triggers all break around 4.25lbs and the safeties are all solid with a crips click on and off. The slides and frames have a great fit and I thought he did a great job on the beavertails as well.

I’m waiting on Caspian to finish my receiver and slide to get my V4/5 underway. Tomorrow we are going to start on my Raider to get the Colt USMC clone engravings done and the refinishing.

Finished up my clone Colt M45A1 from a Tisas Raider.  Now it’s not 100% correct but the best we could do with the engraver!!! My COLT and USMC should have been a hair bigger and slightly slanted but I can live with it.The cool thing is the Q code is actually one that when scanned will bring up USMC M45A1 on the internet as a search !!! 😃

I gonna add one more coat on the right frame engravings to get them darker and filled better.
