Anyone keeping with news about the CMP program going to promote the sale of old issue, and i guess some new stock of govt 1911 from war? These will be priced over the roof in my opinion, only wealthy collectors and big names afford to buy them.

Would be nice to get an old junker if it did shoot, nice piece of Ameican history to display.

I've heard this was happening for a good while but I've lost faith. I agree, I would love to have one just for history/collector purposes.

I called them a few years ago when I first heard about it. They seemed skeptical as to whether it would ever happen at all.

I have a model 1917 that was built in 1919. And I have a newer Colt 1911 built in 2010. I'd love to have an old Army-issue 1911 to go with my 1917 revolver.

But I have a feeling these are going to cost a fortune.

Some preliminary decisions:

Decisions concerning the grade and pricing of the 1911s will not be made until inspection has occurred of a substantial quantity which will take an estimated 150 days post receipt.
All laws pertaining to the sale of 1911s by CMP will be strictly obeyed.
Potential purchasers will have to provide to CMP a new set of documents exhibiting: 1) proof of U.S. Citizenship, 2) proof of membership in a CMP affiliated club, 3) proof of participation in a marksmanship activity, 4) a new form 2A with notary, 5) successful completion of a NICS background check, 6) a signed copy of the 01 Federal Firearms License in which the 1911 will be transferred to.
The CMP customer will be required to complete a form 4473 in person and successfully complete another NICS check by the recipient FFL holder before the pistol can be transferred.
Qualified CMP customer will only be allowed to purchase one 1911 per calendar year.
No 1911s available in the CMP stores, or on line, only mail order sales.
CMP will set the date in which it will accept orders for the 1911s. The date will be posted to the world.
Orders will only be accepted via mail order delivery.
Orders will only be accepted post marked on the date or after, no early orders.
Once CMP receives 10,000 orders, customer names will be loaded into the Random Number Generator.
The Random Number Generator will provide a list of names in sequence order through a random picking process to CMP.
Customers will be contacted in the sequence provided by the Random Number Generator.
When the customer is contacted a list of 1911 grades and pricing options that are available will be offered for selection of one.
As CMP proceeds down the sequenced list less grade and pricing options will be available. Again, this done completely random.

Jeff - how do we get proof of successful completion of an NICS background check? (unless they accept CHL as proof?)

Also, do you know if the 150 days has started yet? Have they received any or do you know when they will?

It's also kind of an odd setup - they say you have to put in an "order", but you won't know what condition and pricing is available until later? Do you understand how that is supposed to work? What if you're the last person picked and the only thing available is one in junk condition for $2,500. Do you have the option to not buy it?

Thanks for the info - I realize you are just re-posting what Mark sent out, but I thought I'd see if you had any more details.

patriot,

just received that email, doubtless CMP will send out more detailed info in the future.

Right now make sure you are a member of a CMP club and occasionally shooting in a club sponsored match that publishes results.

Yeah I need to go shoot in an event. Haven't shot one in ages. I am a member of a CMP club, so that part is taken care of.

From what I have heard prices are going to start over $1,000 for the lowest condition ones and go up from there.

That would exclude me then. I'm not paying $1k for a beat up, rusted piece of junk. My army-issue 1917 revolver is in awesome shape, so I'd like something in moderately good condition to go along with it. If that's a $1500-$2000 purchase, then I'm out.

If they’re anything like the Garands, that won’t be the case.

They aren't going to go cheap. They will be higher than similar grade Garands. ie Rack Grade is going to start at $1,000. CMP COO said it in a meeting over a year ago. Will that still hold true when the guns show up and start getting graded and put up for sale? I don't know.

My suggestion, get your paperwork in order, put in for the lottery drawing and see what CMP offers you when your number is drawn. If the price is too high then don't buy one.
