Reply to "USMC 0351 MOS being phased out"

The Corps does some weird stuff at times, and is loath to abanon its myths and legends, like the MARSOC M45A1 thing, which is now being replaced by a G19 in less than 5 years since the new 1911 contract was let.

We knew they were maintenance hogs, from the preventive/corrective/rebuild maintenance perspective, and yet we went after the same design pistol with the same drawbacks (along with the lower capacity and larger size/weight). I can’t recall what the rebuild schedule was for either the old or new pistol, but the massive round counts ensured that precision weapons specialists remained gainfully employed at Quantico.

It is better that they do it imperfectly than that you do it perfectly. For it is their war and their country and your time here is limited.
