This may be a simple question, but I am confused.
I have HWS and they discuss the M1 Tracer in 45 caliber for the 1911 pistol. However, I could not find any reference to the M26 Tracer in 45 caliber.
I am guessing the M26 appeared after 1945 which isn’t covered by HWS since Volume II ends in 1945?
When did the M26 Tracer first make its appearance?
What is different about the M26 compared to the M1?
Do both the M1 and M26 have an identical color code and the only way to differentiate between the two is by date?
Is the M26 still being manufactured? The most recent reference I could find to the M26 was in a military manual of small arms ammunition circa 1996.
Any information would be welcome.
