If the weather rises above ‘effing freezing over the next few days, TTAG scribe and Army vet Martin Albright will make his way to Karl Lippard’s Colorado HQ. Martin will test the ex-Marines NCO A2 1911 and provide our readers with a full report. You may recall the NCO as the weapon competing with Springfield and Colt’s 1911s to become the Marine Corps official sidearm. Lippard and his men claim that their gun offers combat effectiveness at 400-yards—an assertion met with some serious incredulity amongst our Armed Intelligentsia and a little not-so-secret sniggering. We shall see. Meanwhile, now see this: the latest iterations out of the oven. Karl’s post-birth pronouncements on the the Lippard A2 Close Quarter Battle Pistol dressed in Marine Corps green and more gun porn after the jump . . .
I will see what USMC says about those. If not we send them to combat. If I don’t like the way they shoot will cut the Slides in half and tighten them up. If it doesn’t shoot, I have no use for it.
