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 preliminary decisions further clarified:

  1. 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.
  2. All laws pertaining to the sale of 1911s by CMP will be strictly obeyed.
  3. 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) a signed copy of the 01 Federal Firearms License in which the 1911 will be transferred to.
  4. A NICS background check will be performed by CMP on the customer to assure the customer is eligible to purchase prior to shipment to the FFL licensed dealer. The customer must receive a "proceed" from NICS prior to shipment of the pistol to the FFL licensed dealer.
  5. The CMP customer will be required to complete a form 4473 in person at the FFL dealers place of business, successfully passing a NICS check performed by the FFL holder, before the pistol can be transferred. This is a second NICS check performed on the customer.
  6. Qualified CMP customer will only be allowed to purchase one 1911 per calendar year.
  7. No 1911s available in the CMP stores, or on line, only mail order sales.
  8. CMP will set the date in which it will accept orders for the 1911s. The date will be posted to the world.
  9. Orders will only be accepted via mail order delivery.
  10. Orders will only be accepted post marked on the date or after, no early orders.
  11. Once CMP receives 10,000 orders, customer names will be loaded into the Random Number Generator.
  12. The Random Number Generator will provide a list of names in sequence order through a random picking process to CMP.
  13. Customers will be contacted in the sequence provided by the Random Number Generator.
  14. When the customer is contacted a list of 1911 grades and pricing options that are available will be offered for selection of one.
  15. As CMP proceeds down the sequenced list less grade and pricing options will be available. Again, this done completely random.

Note: 1911 type pistols purchased from CMP cannot be transferred to 03 FFL (curio and relic) license. BATF and the United States Army prefer the second background check be performed by a "store front" FFL dealer. Each customer purchasing a 1911 type pistol from CMP will be subjected to two NICS background checks, one performed by CMP and the other performed by the FFL dealer the pistol is being shipped to.

I know that the ID part will change to a photo ID! Which probably means a passport or military ID.

Before long you'll have to do all of this to buy any gun period. Thanks for the info.
I agree & it seems that if we are law abiding citizens not criminals we should be
proud to be confirmed as such. Look at the demon who shot up the Christians
in Texas. The US Air Force screwed up but he still bought his weapons legally &
gave voice to the gun banners.

:eek: We can't have these powerful guns on the streets and in the hands of citizens!

These guns can take out tanks! Just watch that documentary called "Chasing Private Ryan", or something like that.

These are too powerful of a weapon for society! Please! Think about the children!
:cry: :cry: :cry:

Meh, I am in for 1. Why not. A true piece of history and I have done dumber things with a grand. If it’s pristine, it will be treated as such. If it is battle borne, again, it will be treated as such and used.

I carried one into combat and the front sight had a good 30 degree bend to the left.

i'll pass, that's just too much bullcrap to deal with unless you were guaranteed something of value to make it worthwhile, a standard military issue pistol is just that, standard, nothing special. i had a new remington issued to me in RVN, i'd like to have that one, but not arsenal reworks

Holy thread resurrection! So, am I the only one who sent in an order?

Mine was postmarked 9/4/2018 and received on 9/7/2018. Yes I included all the paperwork in my package including the check sheet form 4A. :D
Oh hail, we will all live vicariously through the Burn . . . . . . .

Quick question, two times on the application it says club/state affiliation. I'm assuming thats where you put your club affiliate and state its located in?

I will have to agree Crayj46 this is just too much Bull Sxxx for
me. I have 3 1911s all under $350.00 one was $200.. I know a
fellow Club member who bought one from the DCM for $25,00.
When I saw the prices for these old war horses I about chocked.
Just what do these people at CMP think they have but old
military pistols? Every one in the Gun biz today want's to get rich now now now. Good luck with that folks.

I was at one of my LGSs the other day where they were complaining about slow sales. Well I wonder why with plastic
pistols selling for more than a Weatherby rifle did in the past.
A charter arms 38 spl for $385.00 what? That is just pure junk.
I just bought a like new Ruger 357 magnum Security Six for $275.00 from a friend.
Some will say well it's all about inflation, well you just keep sayin that & all the while people like me will just pass on it.

Federal Match primers 210 M $10.00 for 1K count.
AA 2520 1LB $8.00 a pound.
Sierra 168gr BTHP Match King 30 cal $9.00 for a box of 100.
I can name so much more. A quick shout out to Bill Klinton thanks so much for getting me to buy so much more than I needed.
With a smile & whistling a hap hap Happy tune, I have enough
to last long after I'm dead & gone, just keep on shooting.
Not to forget the most successful firearms salesman of all time
Barack Obama, King Socialist of all time. :D:):confused: Oh & all of
those other Democraps they are a big influence to gun owners.
