CMP 1911s

Looks like the CMP is set to get about 8,000 of them:

The CMP 1911 order packet will be posted 90 days prior to the order acceptance date and opening sales date. No orders will be accepted prior to that date. Please visit www.thecmp.org, click on the Sales icon then 1911 Information, for the latest. CMP customer service has been inundated with calls and emails concerning the 1911s and no further information is available at this time.

Sort of want.

    Would love to own a piece of that history but no way in hell I’m going to shell out what they are asking for them.

    $1,000 rack (worst) grade and only goes up from there. Still considering it as I do not have one but may go for a new colt model 70 instead. And that is not considering the other costs involved.

    And considering with a new Colt, you only have ONE background check.

    CMP overcharges for their M1 Garands also, whenever they have any.
    Most are SOLD OUT.

    I bought an excellent condition Springfield Armory 1955 M1 Garand from Collectors Firearms for $1525. FREE Shipping.
    No rust, bluing 99%, stock only has minor handling dings and came wit a sling.

    The CMP has long since deviated from its original purpose and simply become another overpriced gun store.

    With their stupid requirements of shipping to an FFL, no way in hell do I want one.

  7. Drake Says:

    Wow – I have to go through an FFL (which means all kinds of hassle here in NJ) for a beat up $1,000 + pistol?

    They will be beat up worse than Bill Clinton’s rape victims and looser than his interns.
