True enough, but folks will want to be sure they’re in the first group of 10,000 so I expect CMP will get lots of mail right around 10am, haha!!

I will continue to posit that the buzz and anticipation over these 1911's will far exceed the satisfaction of actual acquisition of one of them. When the boards were all abuzz over the last batch of M1 carbines, I threw my hat in the ring and acquired one.

It was a beater, a disappointment, and I sold it.

Yeah actually I have other things I want more, a Henry Golden Boy in 22lr ($399 at Walmart here), one in 22mag and a RIA 22mag pistol.

For the 1911s, It will be important to calibrate expectations and only jump in if one understands what they are purchasing... history.

How did CMP rate it? Rack Grade? Field Grade? Service Grade?

Were you familiar with CMP Grading Criteria before you purchased the carbine?

It was a field grade tagged as a service grade. I contacted them and they refunded me the difference, to their credit.

Yes.
I think this is fairly unusual for CMP. I have heard CMP customers say that their guns were in better condition than they expected per the Grading Descriptions but never before a complaint of a gun in worse description than described.

Glad to hear they tried to make it right.

This was posted on another forum by a collector I would say is in the know. Meaning I trust what he has to say.


"I just today saw photos of 7 of the pistols....a few were recently released from the DOD to select police departments (why I donít know). But they are all heavily reparked (possibly several times...I actually thought it was cerakote at first ) and beforehand were sandblasted so heavily you almost canít make out the serial numbers on them. Some have post war slides/parts. Theyíre arsenal marked with the date they were redone....most appear to be redone in the mid to late 70ís. I was going to get one but will likely pass, even without the C&R BS. One thing is for sure, they definitely will not give original or wwii/near postwar rebuilt 1911s currently available a run for their money. I think they will have their own little market though"

Sorry for the confusion. 1911forum does have pictures posted of DOD guns shipped to police departments, multiple threads and examples. Most are refinished with rough parkerizing couple times over in good rearsenaled condition.

Well that's disappointing. Can't say I'm surprised though.

Here is the link to the pics on 1911forum

They are pretty rough. Not much collectible value there.

I don't think they were shown to departments, but are on loan to departments.

Coming from CMP via DOD they absolutely should and likely will be serviceable. Whether they have any collectable value is another thing. I am not in a rush to buy one, but I'm sure they will have a waiting list and sell out as quick as they get them.

I can't see the pics but if these are in poor condition, could they be a rack grade instead of a service grade?

They are like new in condition. The problem is that they're on the second or third time of being like new.

I'll still buy one. I wasn't alive in the 60s when you could mail order a 1911 and don't plan to miss out this time. Even as a completely bead blasted and reparked during the Reagan administration rebuild, there is history there.

As much as I would love to add a USGI 1911 from the CMP, I’m going to pass on this offering based on the high probability of getting a stinker. Not to mention I’m getting married this year so my firearm purchases are temporarily on hold.

I’m definitely going to throw my hat into the ring. Why not?? Maybe I’ll get a diamond-in-the-rough, or just get the rough, haha!!, but that’s half the fun.

I would guess this would be service grade if they are actively being used by police department. I would assume function would be fine. Here are the pics for those that can see them.

Wow! That re-park looks at least 3 layers deep.

I think I'll wait to see the prices and what quality others are getting then go shopping to see what's available in the open market for that price.

I watched some of the Rock Island Auction today and I do not think I saw a single government issue 1911 sell for less than $1500-2500, but I am no expert in these and RIA is NOT a place to bargain shop anyway. But when CMP says $1000 minimum price for mixmasters they are not uncompetitive. Not saying I want one covered in a half inch of park!

No way would I pay more than 500.00, if that is a true example of what they will be. That would be stretching it too, in hopes of getting something salvageable. Would need to be completely stripped and refinished. And hope atleast some of the markings are salvageable afterwards.

Just going to be too many unknowns here I think. But if others are willing to be the initial guinea pigs, I will see what they get first.

I would rather pay 1000.00 for a very nice Hi Power. Or almost anything else that has value.
