Description

Colt OHWS

The Colt OHWS (also known as Colt SOCOM) was a semi-automatic pistol created by Colt to compete for the United States Special Operations Command (US SOCOM) Offensive Handgun Weapon System (OHWS) tender. The winner of this competition would become the standard-issue handgun for most US special forces groups. The OHWS contract was awarded to Heckler & Koch for their MK23 Mod 0 pistol, and Colt scrapped the project.

The Colt OHWS was based on the M1911 frame and carried a single-stack 10-round magazine. The handgun was designed to carry a removable sound suppressor and a laser aiming module (LAM).

Colt added an extra rail under the dust cover to attach tactical lights or LAMs. SOCOM found the Colt OHWS too bulky, not as durable as expected, and the accessories too careful to use and assemble, resulting in a loss in the competition for SOCOM’s Heckler and Koch MK23 contracts. to attach tactical lights or LAMs. SOCOM found the Colt OHWS too bulky, not as durable as expected, and the accessories too careful to use and assemble, resulting in a loss in the competition for SOCOM’s Heckler and Koch MK23 contracts. to attach tactical lights or LAMs. SOCOM found the Colt OHWS too bulky, not as durable as expected, and the accessories too careful to use and assemble, resulting in a loss in the competition for SOCOM’s Heckler and Koch MK23 contracts.
