  1. General 1911 talk
    Hiyo. I’m filling out the form for the next round of CMP 1911s. Doing some research I read on forums some people saying they were not safe to shoot or are prone to slide cracking. Any of this true or just rumors from the peanut gallery. I am hoping to get the lottery for a service grade and...

    I am excited. I have wanted a 1911a1 for a long time and I think I did good on this one. While $2100 seems like a lot, I feel like it was worth it compared to what some of them have been going for. This one was re-arsenaled by Anniston Armory. I know there is always a debate between...
  3. Sold/Expired Classifieds
    The pefect father's day gift. Helping a good friend sell his CMP service grade Garand. This is all correct except for a new stock. Asking $2000 ($2,250 trade value) or best offer. Full asking price includes insured shipping. Listing here first before it goes on other forums and GB. Trade...

    howdy all. I recently purchased a LB premier 2 in 9mm with the 1.5” certificate. With CMP rules now allowing 1911s chambered in 9mm I thought it would be a good opportunity to see if the combination of 1911 design advantages (trigger, accuracy, ergonomics) with the softer shooting 9mm would...
  5. General 1911 talk
    Looking to the addicts in the room to help a fella out. Looking to add a 9MM for use in CMP/EIC matches in the quest for points. Obviously, target sights, match components, and reliability are a must. But accuracy at the long line (1.5" @ 50 yards) is the main thing. I'm currently...
  6. General Firearm Discussion
    The CMP is sorting through their Turkish & Philippine Garrands.... But even better news on the horizon! Korea may be shipping their stockpile of Garands and M-1 Carbines! I would definitely go for a .30 Cal. M-1 Carbine...To quote from Ammoland, "And while the present 107,000 milsurp rifles...
  7. Rifles & Shotguns
    Just got news today that the CMP has accepted delivery of 86,000 M1 Garands from the Philippines and 13,000 from Turkey. These are US made M1 Garands that were sent to these countries through the Military Assistance Program years ago...
  8. 1911 Gunsmithing
    Is my understanding correct that during some war years the tempering of the 1911's may not lend itself to heavy loads since there was a rush to get them into service? I know some were hastily blued and not very well in some instances.

    Just saw this blog in The Firearm Blog that talks about possible pricing of US Army Surplus 1911 pistols. Enjoy! http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015/12/08/how-much-will-cmp-1911-pistols-cost/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_content=2017-12-23&utm_campaign=Weekly+Newsletter
  10. General 1911 talk
    Okay Boys and Girls, Here is the latest and greatest news directly from CMP on surplus 1911 pistols! To all CMP constituents: The CMP Board of Directors has discussed at length how the sales of 1911s would be handled, if the CMP were to ever receive them from the United States Army. Some...
  11. General 1911 talk
    I have to say I'm surprised that I haven't seen a thread about the Civilian Marksmanship Program 1911's, especially after their e-mail release yesterday. http://thecmp.org/cmp_sales/1911-information/ I know I for one will be submitting an order to try to get one. A USGI 1911 is on my very...

    I heard it was likely that Obama would delay or stop the sale of the surplus 1911s. Will Trump expedite them? Anybody have any idea?
  15. General 1911 talk
    It's been awhile, and still no word from the CMP about the 1911s being sold to the public. Their website still has the same old line about no new information from the COO that is dated November of last year. After some disappointing rumor/news/suggestion about the price (It was a little steeper...
  16. Competition 1911's
    So Saturday we're heading out to Alabama for the CMP IDPA Match (just a local gig). I'll get some video up maybe Sunday afternoon. Anyone here going?
  17. General 1911 talk
    Start at $1K and up from there... disappointing IMO, but I still would like to own one. http://www.alloutdoor.com/2016/01/19/a-cmp-1911-update-from-cmp-chief-operating-officer-mark-johnson/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_content=2016-01-22&utm_campaign=Weekly+Newsletter
