It's now "CP", not "JCP".

The max quantity is now 50,000, not 645,000.

The CP will be delivered in accordance with specification entitled "Performance Specification Combat Pistol (PS/4081/C05/1415) to be provided with issuance of the solicitation.

If that looks like the original draft specs for the SOF CP, then single action pistols/1911s will be back in the running

Still a .45 ACP and still a "commercially available non-developmental item (NDI)".

Round n round we go...
