I'm posting here and not the FAQ as I've a game in 4 hours.
The Ultra Grit rule (or is it true grit?). Did Chaos lose that and simply gain bolt pistols that can be used in close combat? I can't find any Ultra Grit rule in the 4th Ed Codex so I assume so. But the rules for pistols in the rulebook don't specifically say that they grant +1Attack in close combat, only that they are 'handy enough to allow a trooper to fight in close combat with a combination of pistol and sword, pistol and axe or other close combat weapons.'
Also, bolt pistols are an assault weapon right? I never knew, and after playing 7 games have never even thought of using them before assaulting. Silly me.
'Ultra Grit' is a term coined here at LO, it doesn't exist in the actual rules. It's just a spin off of True Grit. Because the average CSM trooper has a Bolt Pistol AND a CCW - we recieve two base attacks in CC, three on a charge. (Don't forget that the Aspiring Champion will have even more)
You can shoot Bolt Pistols once before entering combat.
Hope this helps.

"Ultra Grit" like what hotspike said is a term here on LO. It basicly means that chaos marines have bolt pistol close combat weapon and a bolter.
You only get the bonus for dual close combat weapons when you charge if you chose to shoot your pistol instead of your bolter.
Look in the weapon type section of the rule book to find out about pistols, I don't have the rule book with me at the time because I am at school so I can't give you the page number.

OK this clearly belongs in the rules section but will leave it for the moment because of the time frame:
As above, there is no rule "ultra grit" nor has there ever been, the effect of CSM having bolt pistol and CCW and a bolter is similar,or slightly better than the true grit rule (depending on if you are charged or you charge)
Pistols are not assault weapons, they are pistols, this is explained in the main rule book
