Just a note if you would like to acquire a surplus 1911 from the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

The CMP is the only outfit authorized by Congress to market surplus US military weapons.

Don't know the price, and I'd expect several grades are to be offered. I guess these will not be tack drivers but can be improved I'm sure. I plan to get one if prices are reasonable.

The CMP is a good outfit and will take care of you if you have a problem. I have two Garands and a 1903A3 from them. Found a crack in the handguard of the 03A3 and they sent me a NOS one, no problem.

There are some requirements you have to meet, outlined at the CMP site.

I'm not interested, but it seems to me they should have inventoried the pistols first, so they could describe the number, condition, and prices of the 8,000 or so they have received.

But I guess some people are so jacked up that they will sign up / apply for / get in line for stuff sight unseen.

I just don't get it.

They are about to inventory them. Then they will inspect, repair, and grade them. Then publish this info and prices. This is just an early heads up.

If interested, you can sign up for email notifications at appropriate times.

If interested AT ALL, get your CMP documentation lined up NOW.

Not when it's coming out, not the day of.

Have it ready.

Or miss out.

The rev is certainly correct. I waited 2 days to Fedex an application in for a M1 carbine. Too late, they're all gone.

But the application acceptance date will be 90 days after release of the application packet, so you should have time.

For anybody that subscribes to American Rifleman, there is an article about these in the August 2018 issue.

cliffnotes:

They are expecting around 75,000 applicants for only 8000 pieces, so there will be a lottery

How lucky do ya feel?

These "weapons of war" are way too dangerous for us in the PRM.

CMP won't ship to MA.

I get AR and read that just yesterday. However, I own 5 1911's, one of which is a 1944 RR that I traded an old Bushmaster Varminter for. It was a neighbor who picked it up from a guy trying to sell it to a pawn shop. The pistol also came with an old military holster.

I've also got a couple Spingfields, a Norelco, and a Kimber CDP. I also own the Kimber .22 slide/barrel assembly that allows for inexpensive shooting on the full size pistols.

So I don't need any more. ;o)

woody, I shot it with the fellow who sold it to me when he first came over with it. It wasn't until some time later when he offered to trade it for the Bushmaster. I ran another magazine or two through to be sure everything was still the same but no, I don't shoot it when I have so many others to shoot. Just kind of a preservation thing.
