CMP 1911 email

#1 Post by OldGrouchyGuy » Tue Dec 05, 2017 11:57 pm

I just got an email form CMP about the 1911's and how it would handled if they ever receive them. Anyone else get that?

They will not ship to C&R's. all shipments will go to an 01 dealer so you get run trough NCIS TWICe (once by CMP, once by the 01 dealer).

Everyone has to submit a new set of docs for these.

Once CMP gets the pistols it will take 150 days for inspection etc., to post receipt.

Once they get 10,000 orders They will feed the orders into a random number generator to see who gets contacted first.

CMP info here:
http://thecmp.org/cmp_sales/1911-information/
The latest information on the 1911's will be posted on this page.

December 5, 2017

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.

I got the email from them, but also my state rifle/pistol association sent it out to all members. Sounds like their trying to be "PC" with the No C&R business and the two NICS checks. It seems like there are a few more hoops to go through but overall it may be more fair using their Random Number approach - I'm still thinking about that one. Unfortunately they omitted the question that everyone wants to know, "How Much?". That's going to make or break the deal for many folks.

Personally, they would need to be under $600 before I would have a strong interest. It will be interesting to see how many grades they decide to offer.

If they are smart about it, prices will be right along the same lines as the Garands. However I'm thinking that any of them that they sell under $1,000, are going to to be beat to hell, broken, and or stripped frames. I don't think they are going to cause the prices to drop right off the bat, but prices will probably drop in a few years, once all have been sold and are on the private market.
