CMP Discusses 1911 Sales
« on: December 05, 2017, 02:48:42 PM »

For those who don't know, congress recently OK'd the release of "surplus" 1911 pistols for sale to individuals through the CMP.   
The minute that happened, people were bugging the CMP asking when they could get theirs.  The CMP has a paid staff I might be able to count on one hand, and they knew no more than we did. 
 
They did release a statement by email yesterday.  Just in case anyone wants one of these guns that were worn out when my dad shot them in the 1940s, here it is. 


CMP 1911 Information
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:
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) a signed copy of the 01 Federal Firearms License in which the 1911 will be transferred to.
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.
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.
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.
 
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.

Government surplus 1911's are as loose as a barracks whore.  They are reliable but the only thing you can be certain they will hit is the ground.

#3 should be satisfied with your muzzleloader competition.   Put the results from any match on a sheet of paper, circle your name, and send it.  If you don't want to give out the names of others that way, then I guess you shot against Mr Smith and Mr Jones that month! 

#2 is the sticker for a lot of people on getting a Garand.  But there is a reasonable way.  The easiest and cheapest way I know to join a CMP-affiliated club is to join the Garand Collectors Association.  Membership in it counts.   It went up, but think it's maybe $25.   It's worth the $25 to get a Garand at their prices, and I imagine it will be here too.   
Plus you get a year's worth (4 issues) of their little magazine, and flipping through it isn't the worst way to spend time.

Barry, I don't compete, at anything (except lane changes while driving my 18 wheeler).
As for getting a Garand.....  I'll get one, in time, though I'd rather buy one if you catch my drift. 

In case you don't, I'll inherit my dad's collection, minus what my sister wants on that inevitable day.  Which I'm NOT looking forward to.

Oops. I thought Soot said what you did.  I guess I got all excited about more guns and all.

Now that's a good question.  The rules used to say "an approved competition", which should include you.  Now I'm not sure.
