The MEU(SOC) pistol, officially designated M45 MEUSOC, is a semi-automatic, magazine-fed, single-action .45 caliber handgun. It is based on the original M1911 design by John Browning, and has been the standard-issue sidearm of the the Force Recon Element of the United States Marine Corps' Expeditionary Units since 1985.

In 2012 the Colt Rail Gun, another derivative of the M1911 was adopted by the USMC and designated as the M45A1 Close Quarter Battle Pistol (CQBP).

The M45 is a pistol set to appear in Insurgency: Sandstorm.

Trivia Edit

  • Unlike the previous game, the M45 in Insurgency Sandstorm is actually based on the 2012 M45A1 CQBP, and not the original MEU(SOC) pistol.
    • What's more strange is that the M45 that appears in Insurgency is known simply as the "M45A1", while the true M45A1 appears in Insurgency: Sandstorm simply as the "M45".

The M45A1 is a weapon featured in Insurgency. It first became available in the December 12, 2014 content update. The weapon is exclusive to the Security Force faction. The M45's stats are identical to the M1911.

The M45A1 has the highest damage output and recoil of all pistols. It also features the smallest pistol magazine capacity. Considering these factors, the M45 is best suited for close range combat. It may be equipped with a suppressor and a flashlight or laser sight.

As of October 27, 2015, an extended magazines attachment was added. It added 8 rounds to the total capacity of the M45A1, going from 7+1 rounds to 15+1 rounds. With the cost of two supply points, the attachment bridges the gap between the high capacity M9 and the high damage M45A1's .45 ACP cartridge.

Trivia Edit

  • While the weapon is referred to as the "M45A1", as mentioned above, the pistol is actually just the original M45 MEUSOC; the M45A1 designation is for the 2012 Colt 1911 Rail Gun. However, in early versions of the game, the weapon was correctly referred to as the "M45".
