    CMP Proposed Release procedures on 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:


    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) successful completion of a NICS background check, 6) a signed copy of the 01 Federal Firearms License in which the 1911
    will be transferred to.

    4. The CMP customer will be required to complete a form 4473 in person and successfully complete another NICS check by the recipient FFL holder before the pistol can be transferred.
    Qualified CMP customer will only be allowed to purchase one 1911 per calendar year.

    5. No 1911s available in the CMP stores, or on line, only mail order sales.

    6. CMP will set the date in which it will accept orders for the 1911s. The date will be posted to the world.

    7. 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.

    Meeting requirement in #3 would be a pain in the rear for a just a chance of getting on their list------Even if you are already qualified, with forms on file (like me), none of that
    would count, you would have to start over again with even more (additional) paperwork. Again this not set in stone yet, but if they put it out will likely e close to what they
    decide to do.

    Beat me to it was just going to post this. I only have one thing to say to these rules. I won't be buying one. Also heard they are thinking close to the $1000.00 dollar range for crappy ones and the good ones for more. Also collectables going by way of auction.

    The 2 4473''s is puzzling. Is their intent to have you do one up front showing you are eligible and another to actually take possession? Otherwise it reads as if you must fill one out at the cmp and again later to transfer at your ffl.

    What a bunch of crap to go through. Can't ship to C&R either. They can keep them as far as I am concerned. Much easier to buy one at a gun show or GB.

    I will go down to local bank have my paperwork notarized and send it in when they are ready. Unlike first go around some years ago I am now over 60 so
    exempt from marksmanship requirements, but frankly it did not matter the first time as I was already qualified 3 ways - military service (retired), Law Enforcement
    service and DAV status. The only thing I think will be added is having my FFL fax a copy of his FFL to them with my name attached.

    I think they are real nervous about a screw up and getting the pistols cut off - I believe they said they were under a 2 year test period to see if they
    get it right before they get the full release of the pistols. Because of that they are establishing a whole new separate program for the pistols. The double
    background check, first by them and a followup (2nd one) by FFL is just being redundant to protect themselves.

    Yea, it is a pain, but I carried one in service and would like to get one of these. I also like the fact they will come from the Army to me and not be one that
    has been owned and handled/sold by civilian(s) or dealer(s) before I get it.
